Entertain Guests with these Dragon Garden Statues

Dragon of Falkenberg Castle Moat Lawn SculptureGardens can act as a place to showcase beautiful garden statuary, for relaxation after a long, stressful day, or to cultivate vegetables, herbs, and beds of bright flowers. However, most of us also use the backyard to entertain guests, especially during the summer. It's hard to stay out of a beautiful backyard when the weather is warm, and even more so when we can share that lovely green space with family and friends. This summer, augment the entertainment factor with unique garden statues, and treat guests to a creative display of garden decor.

Dragon statues always make an impression on garden guests, especially when the sculpture looks as if it is swimming through the lawn. The Dragon of Falkenberg Castle Moat Lawn Statue does just that with detailed, scaled coils, and an intimidating stare.

To show guests that dragons can also be adorable, surprise them with the cute: "Blushing Babel, the Bashful Dragon" Statue. Shy, little Babel would rather take a siesta in the summer sun and smell the flowers than cause trouble. Pair this lovely little dragon with your favorite garden gnomes and garden fairies for full cute effect.   

Guests can also be served in medieval style with striking dragon-themed tables like Hastings, the Warrior Dragon Glass-Topped Sculptural Table, and The Subservient Dragon Glass-Topped Sculptural Table.

Beautiful

The Crystal Ball, 1902, Canvas Replica Painting: Medium

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

This is exactly as expected, and I love it. It was packaged well too. I looked far and wide for a good copy of this piece- Design Toscano is the only source I have found which includes the skull on the table- which is very important symbolism and integral to the entire "spirit" of this painting as far as I'm concerned. I have hung it above my desk to remind myself to work while there's still time....

Save 20% on Beautiful Garden Statues for Mother's Day

Cleopatra Neoclassical ChaiseMother's Day is one of the most special days of the year. This is the day when many of us take the time to thank and appreciate the most special person in our lives and we can do so in a number of ways. That deep appreciation and love can be shown with anything from a heart-warming card, to taking Mom out to dinner at her favorite restaurant, or giving her the luxurious Cleopatra Neoclassical Chaise. Garden statues are also fine Mother's Day gifts especially if Mom loves to spend time in the backyard.

If she likes cute animals and has a fun sense of humor, she will love our new Skyler, the Climbing Squirrel Statue. Although other squirrels might take chances, Skyler is always careful when climbing backyard trees. This and other cute animal garden sculptures like the Golden Retriever Puppy Dog Statue make wonderful, unique gifts no matter what the occasion.

Statues of children also work well for Mother's Day. The Flowers for Felicity Little Girl Garden Statue is a good option because Mom can also use this endearing statue of a child to display her favorite flower cuttings.

Start thinking of Mother's Day and order these great gift options today!

I am so happy that I bought this!

A Naiad, 1905, Canvas Replica Painting: Large

Bottomline: Yes, would recommend to a friend.

Rating:

I just received this beautiful painting today, and it was well worth the wait. It was packaged well, and the colors are true to the colors you see online- I was a bit concerned because I bought this for a spot that is a bit dark during the day-but the blue of the stream and the colors of flesh are vivid enough that the picture isn't "dreary" without the lights on at all.

Outstanding Contemporary Bronze Garden Sculptures

Nymph Dancing on LiliesA variety of sculpting mediums have been used throughout history. At present times, most high quality garden statues are made from resin. One hundred years ago, most statues were made from marble. However, before marble came into use, sculptures of the highest quality were cast in bronze. The qualities and beauty of this copper alloy made it an ideal choice for sculptures in the ancient past and it has continued to be an important material for sculptures today.

Some of the finest sculptures in our collection are cast in bronze and were made with the same lost wax method that was used for statues in the empires of the ancient world. Although several classic bronze sculptures can be found in our collection of garden statuary, we also offer modern day bronze decor fir for art galleries and the most distinguished of gardens. The Nymph Dancing on Lilies Cast Bronze Garden Statue is lovely, energetic, and piped to lend an enchanting touch to a backyard pond. This fine sculpture and the endearing Mother's Moment Cast Bronze Garden Statue both use a beautiful antiqued emerald verde patina to give these heirloom pieces additional color. Equally outstanding is the wonderfully detailed Fishing Family Cast Bronze Garden Statue.

Find the best selection of heirloom-quality statues and garden decor for the best prices at Design Toscano. Free Standard Shipping on Purchase of $75 or More through Sunday!

What to Look for in a Garden Gargoyle Statue

Boden Gargoyle Sentinel SculptureIt's easy to pick out some types of resin garden statues. There are beautiful animal garden statues for every decorating taste, angel sculptures big and small, and an exquisite range of garden fairies. However, when it comes to gargoyle sculptures, some people have a tough time picking out even one statue for the garden. This mostly stems from lack of experience with gargoyle statues and just knowing what to look for. Finding a high quality gargoyle for any garden is actually much easier than most people realize. These are a few things to look for:

  • Details: When it comes to gargoyles, beauty is found in the details. For example, although the Boden Gargoyle Sentinel Statue isn't going to win any beauty contests, it mesmerizes with carefully crafted, symmetrical features, sharp claws, and a frighteningly life-like appearance.

 

  • Creativity: In addition to fine details, look for gargoyles that would make heads turn if perched on the ramparts of a cathedral or castle. Put Talysus the Terrible Gargoyle Sculpture on display and guests will be doing double-takes when they see this fine statue. Like many a classic gargoyle, Talysus has an intimidating, muscled appearance, and a fierce look. However, this backyard beast also has long, outstretched wings and a touch of realism that will provoke more than one set of goose bumps.

 

  • Class: A classic, high quality gargoyle statue gives the garden a touch of medieval class. The Cathedral Gargoyle Statue accomplishes this with ease.

Find the best gargoyle and dragon decor for the best prices at Design Toscano. Free Standard Shipping on orders of $75 or More through Sunday, April 26th.

Beautiful Lighting for the Backyard with Asian Garden Statues

Sacred Pagoda LanternIt's time to take advantage of the warm weather and spend more time in the backyard. One of the nicest things about the warm weather of spring and summer is not having to go back into the house after the sun goes down. In fact, sometimes, the backyard is better during a warm summer night, especially when we enjoy it with our family and friends. Lighting is of course essential but why settle on average illumination when there are more interesting options available?

The Sacred Pagoda Lantern Illuminated Statue provides a garden with soft, peaceful lighting in the form of attractive Asian-themed decor. It also looks just as nice during the day, especially when placed next to a Koi pond or rock garden.

The Sacred Pagoda pairs well with the simple yet elegant and serene Japanese Pagoda Illuminated Lantern Statue. These illuminated statues look especially nice when one is placed next to a pond or off in a corner of the garden, and the other is displayed next to the pool or near the back door. Complete the Asian-themed look by adding candles to the "Avalokitesvara Buddha" Garden Statue.
