Delightful Garden Fairies for Sale

Fiona the Flower FairyThe fairy statue became popular garden statuary during the Victorian era. Before then, a lot of people didn't need to put statues of fairies in the backyard because they believed that the "little people" were real and frequented the garden on moonlit nights. On occasion, some people also left offerings in the garden to appease the fairies and gnomes that supposedly lived there.

In modern times, although we don't really believe that fairies actually live in the garden (at least most of us), we still like to pay homage to the legend with high quality fairy decor. By nature, most garden fairies are lovely, delightful creatures. Those attributes are shown by the majority of the fairies in our collection, including our beautiful Fiona, the Flower Fairy Sculpture. This life-like fairy sculpture has a peaceful smile and elegant features that lend a happy touch to any backyard.

Another, equally delightful fairy sculpture is Fannie, the Fairy Sitting Statue. Fannie's lovely little smile and half-closed eyes fit in perfectly with a lazy, warm summer garden. Don't forget to buy and save on the Woodland Fairy Garden House Statue to give Fannie, Fiona, and your other garden fairy statues a place to live.   

Take 20% off any of the garden fairy statues in our collection as well as any of our high quality decor from today until July 7th as part of our July 4th sale.

Cheerful Greenmen Sculptures

Bacchus Wall SculptureThe greenman sculpture is an ancient form of art that probably has its roots in pre-Christian druidic belief systems. Rather like wall decor for trees, these interesting statues literally give a face to a favorite Oak, Maple, Ash, or other backyard tree. Although some look intimidating or even a bit frightening, there are greenman sculptures with happier, cheerful faces. These fun wall decor items are a perfect addition for a summer garden, and add just the right character to summer garden soirees.

Few wall decor items make a better fit for summer parties than the Bacchus, God of Wine Greenman Wall Sculpture. With wild, unkempt curls and a jovial, grape-ringed face, Bacchus shows that this is one deity who is always ready to party.

Another of the more cheerful greenman sculptures in our collection is actually a greenwoman. Daphne, the Greenwoman Wall Sculpture has a happy, easy-going face with bright eyes and smooth, flawless skin. Her face is also ringed with leaves of Laurel that blow in the breeze, and where tiny fairy creatures dwell.

These two statues are indeed cheerful but the title of "Happiest Greenman" goes to our Laughing Greenman Birdhouse. With a mischievous wink and roaring laughter, this fun greenman decor also acts as a backyard birdhouse.

Find unique greenman decor, Gothic furniture, and the best selection of garden statues for the best prices at Design Toscano.

Bring Elegant Beauty to the Backyard with Classic Resin Garden Statues

Four Goddesses of the SeasonsSome statues are cute, others are inspirational, and some are downright elegant. Most classic statuary fits into this latter category by merit of distinguished details and a high class appearance. These are sculptures that never fail to impress every time you walk into the garden, and guests will feel as if they have entered a royal estate, or Roman villa. Any of the Four Goddesses of the Seasons would add a beautiful, antique look to a backyard or place of business, but all four of them placed in different corners of the garden would make your place resemble something from a wonderful Victorian novel.

Our beautiful British Reading Fairy Statue is one of the more popular classic statues in our collection and with good reason. This unique, classic decor captures the hearts of everyone from children to retirees and resembles similar classic fairy sculptures found in European gardens and Victorian estates.Complement this fine sculpture with a place for you and your guests to sit down and read a favorite book. The elegant Giant Neoclassical Swan Garden Bench can help you enjoy a good story surrounded by the greenery of your backyard, can be shared with family or a special friend, and makes its own classic statement whether you use it as a beautiful garden seat or stand alone decor.

Beautiful Hand Painted Garden Fairies

Fairies of the Meadow Garden StatuesThe fairy statue is one of the more enchanting types of garden decor. Statues of these beautiful little creatures fit right in with well vegetated gardens and green space because these are the places where they are purported to live. With their butterfly wings, and elegant appearance, they add an exquisite, lovely touch to flowerbeds, and just about every type of garden. Although the fairy statues found in Victorian gardens tend to be the same color as pale marble, there are also several beautiful little fairy sculptures that sport bright colors.

The cute Fairies of the Meadow Garden Statues have dresses and wings that have been painted with pale green and pink pastels. Their colors also match the blooms carried in their arms. Pair these beautiful fairies with the even more adorable Ella, the Littlest Flower Fairy.

The Red and Green Fairy of Acorn Hollow Statues have also been carefully painted by hand but show brighter hues, more elegant features, and are ringed by small, colorful petals. These fairy statues will look right at home when placed next to your brightest flowerbeds.

One of our most colorful fairy statues is the Pondering Pixie Stained Glass Sculpture. This life-like, lovely depiction of a fairy makes use of more than 75 pieces of carefully cut, stained glass for her beautiful butterfly wings.

Save on these fine decor items, unique garden statuary, and more at Design Toscano.

The Soothing Sounds of Garden Statuary

Spirit of the Ocean Two Tier Seahorse FountainMany resin garden statues are static, high quality depictions of animals, deities, fairies, and other interesting subjects. They showcase their beauty and details in fine, still form and are meant to be admired at length from every angle. However, some garden statues are more dynamic in nature and make use of sound just as much as the fine appearance of a beautiful sculpted form. One such type of sculpture is the garden fountain. Outdoor water garden fountains combine the soothing sounds of water with intricate sculpted details to add a naturally elegant touch to any backyard.

The Spirit of the Ocean Two-Tier Seahorse Fountain makes use of two basins, gently falling water, and sculpted seahorses to add a soothing touch to the garden. The sounds and appearance of this unique garden statue will remind guests of quiet seashores, and the sounds of the endless sea.

Buy and save on the Bright Waters Otters Garden Fountain Sculpture for a work of art that combines gentle falling water, illuminated basins, and detailed sculptures of inquisitive otters. The natural appearance of this fountain makes it ideal for backyards that are decorated with animal garden sculptures, abundant vegetation, garden fairies, and fantasy-themed decor.

Buy any of our beautiful garden fountains from today until May 31st and enjoy a 20% discount.

Three Reasons to Put Gargoyle Figurines in the Garden

Florentine GargoyleWe all have our favorite garden statuary items. Some of us put the focus on garden fairies because we love their blend of detailed beauty, nature, and magic. Others stick to replicas of stunning antique sculptures, and some people prefer to decorate the yard with an animal yard statue or two. However, no matter what you might prefer in terms of statues or decorating themes, a gargoyle statue will make the backyard look better. The following are three reasons why this is the case:

  • Gargoyles are in a class of their own: Created to intimidate evil spirits and frighten Medieval peasants, gargoyles rank among the more unique of sculptures. Put something like the Florentine Gargoyle Statue on display and you will have the most unique backyard on the block.

 

  • Gargoyles are conversation pieces: Unique statuary is always going to spark conversation, and gargoyles are no exception. Not only will the Argos Gargoyle Sentinel Statue protect the garden, but it will also entertain guests and be the talk of your summer party guests.

 

Find unique gargoyle statues and hundreds of other fantastic resin garden statues at Design Toscano today.

Gothic Garden Statuary for the Summer

Spirit of Nottingham Greenman StatueSummer is just around the corner and although the warm weather doesn't seem to match Gothic decorations as much as garden fairies and other more cheerful decor, there are Gothic items perfectly suited for warm June nights and the hot days of July. Several Gothic resin garden statues in particular are very much suited for the summer months. For example, no summer Gothic garden is complete without a greenman sculpture or two. Greenmen add an enchanting, mysterious touch to the backyard by literally putting faces on the trees. Put the Spirit of Nottingham Woods: Greenman Tree Sculpture on your favorite Oak or Maple to help bring it to life, and pair it with the frightening Poison Oak: Greenman Tree Sculpture if you dare!

Instead of putting a garden fairy statue in the yard, put the Hobgoblin of Harwich Manor Garden Statue on display. Legends say that this funny, furry creature guards vacant castles, keeps, and estates from Trolls and other nasty creatures.

Our Nature's Wanderer Sculpture will also make a fine addition to any Gothic-themed yard. This cloaked wizard will look right at home as he rests on his staff next to a flowerbed or in one of the wilder corners of your garden.

Take 25% off of any of the Gothic decor in our collection when purchased by Friday, May 9th.

Picking Out the Perfect Garden Statues for Mom

The Daydream Fairy SculptureTime is running out to find that perfect Mother's Day gift! Sure, you could always put it off and do some last minute shopping but is it worth the risk of settling on some average gift or cheap, everyday decor? We think not and that's why we want to help you find the best gift for Mom. If she likes to spend any amount of time in the garden, she will love one or more of our resin garden statues.

However, since we have such a huge collection of high quality sculptures, we know that it can be a challenge to pick out the ideal gift for such an important person. Here are a couple of tips on picking out the best garden statue gifts for Mom:

  • Complement a decorating theme: If Mom's backyard already follows a decorating theme that includes animals, you might want to buy a cute animal yard statue like Pancho the Burro Planter Sculpture.
  • Think of her interests: Think about the books she likes to read and the movies she likes to watch. If she enjoys fantasy novels, you might want to give her the Daydream Fairy Sculpture or another of our beautiful garden fairies.
  • Buy a statue that can be used in the garden and inside the home: She will like the statue even more if it works inside the home just as well as it does in the garden. The Thoughts of an Angel Sculptural Wall Roundel is one of several such items in our collection.

Add Enchantment to Spring Flowerbeds with Garden Fairies

Pondering Fairy of Essex Garden StatueThere are few things more naturally magical than the fresh, new flowers of spring. After several months of a backyard dominated by a colorless landscape of  cold white and dull brown, the bright colors of new flowers are especially welcome. As beautiful tulips and other flowers sprout from the recently thawed ground, they help to bring the garden back to life. One of the best ways to heighten their beauty is with certain types of resin garden statues.

Garden gnomes often pair well with flowers but gardeners looking for statues a bit more magical in appearance can't go wrong with a garden fairy sculpture or two. These elegant little statues depict the magical winged creatures said to live in old gardens and sacred tree groves. Although they haven't been reported by modern day people, folks in many parts of the world believed in them just a few hundreds years ago. You can keep those legends alive and enhance the beauty of your flower beds with lovely fairy statues like the Pondering Fairy and the Gazing Fairy Statue. Created by Evelyn Hartley, these beautiful, realistic fairies look best when placed near fresh spring flowers and will add beauty to the backyard on into the warm, lazy days of summer.

Buy $75 or more from Design Toscano by today, March 23rd, and pay nothing for regular shipping.
