A Stone Garden Angel for Every Backyard

In God's Grace StatueAngel statues aren't just meant to be displayed in old cathedrals and Victorian gardens. They can also be displayed with charm in the gardens of hotels, restaurants, and any home. It all depends on the type of angel sculpture you are looking for and the decor that is already on display. For example, the cute and realistic In God's Grace Angel Statue isn't going to look right in a backyard decorated with Gothic decor but might look perfect in a garden that features religious decor or friendly garden fairies.

There are plenty of angels that also happen to look right at home in a Gothic garden including the hauntingly beautiful Monteverde Angel Statue, and the Serene Solitude Angel Statue. These fine statues aren't limited to Gothic-themed gardens and can also be used as high quality Halloween decor, or as unique garden statuary decor in gardens that feature classic or elegant sculptures.

However, if you would rather have an angel that is simply majestic, we also have several stunning angel statues to choose from. The beautiful Angel of Ravenna Religious Statue is a fantastic, 61 inch tall angel sculpture cast from an authentic, 19th century angel statue found in an Italian cathedral. The Angeli di Luce Statues were also cast from angel sculptures from an Italian cathedral and show their "heritage" with an absolutely majestic appearance. 

Buy any of the garden angel statues in our collection by today, August 13, and enjoy a 20% discount.

Garden Fairies and Other Mysterious, Magical Creatures

Woodland Fairy Garden House StatueWe can decorate the garden with a wide variety of statues and garden decorating themes. While some of us stick to a Victorian-themed garden decorated with classic sculptures and Greek garden statues, others prefer a backyard highlighted with fantasy-themed decor. Statues of fairies, pixies, gnarled greenmen, and other creatures appeal to anyone with an appreciation for the fantasy genre and give the yard a magical touch.

The Woodland Fairy Garden House Statue makes an enchanting addition to a flowerbed or the area beneath a big, old Oak, and gives your garden fairy sculptures a welcome place to stay. Teasing Tessa is one of several fairies who would love to live in that cozy wooden house. In true fairy style, Tessa has delicate wings and clothing crafted from leaves.

Statues of pixies and garden trolls also make an enchanting addition to a fantasy-themed garden. The Stretch Garden Pixie Statue demonstrates the odd, magical appearance of these mischievous creatures and looks even better when complemented with the Valfried: Moon Gawker Garden Troll Statue. Valfried is one of the most unique fantasy-themed statues in our collection. Put it near the edge of a bush or flowerbed for full effect, and place the Spirit of Nottingham Woods Greenman on your favorite tree to complete your fantasy-themed garden.

What to Look for in a Garden Fairy Statue

Rhiannon the Archer Garden Fairy StatueGarden fairy sculptures have been a popular aspect of garden decor for more than a hundred years. They became especially popular during the Victorian Era and at that time, many people actually believed that the "little people" or "wee folk" visited the garden and frequented the lonely highland moors. Although the majority of people no longer believe in the existence of fairies, they continue to be popular as garden decor, and take life in fantasy stories and more than a few films. As garden decor, fairy sculptures run the gamut from cheap, very average statues to exquisite, high quality sculptures.

The easiest way to find high quality, unique garden fairy sculptures is by shopping at Design Toscano because all of our fairy statues have to meet a certain standard to make it into our collection. This means that any fairy bought from our collection is going to be a beautiful, high quality statue but there are also some other things to consider when searching for the best fairy statue for your needs. If the garden could go for an exquisite, yet powerful fairy, you might want to try the Celtic Fairy's Perilous Perch Garden Statue or the magnificent Rhiannon the Archer Garden Fairy Statue. These are just two of several detailed, fantastic fairy sculptures in our collection but if the backyard is more in need of something subdued, our lovely Twinkle Toes Fairy Statue might fit the bill.

Greek Garden Statues or an Animal Yard Statue?

Hebe, the Goddess of YouthMid summer is here and it could be time to change some of the garden statuary. Those garden fairies that were a perfect addition to a backyard during the spring just don't seem to fit in with the other summer decor. Or, it could be that you just didn't get a chance to buy any new decor before summer kicked into gear. Whatever the reason, when it's time to go shopping for new statues for the garden, even if you already know where to buy high quality decor for the best prices, you also have to figure out what to buy.

For example, do you go with a new stone garden angel or other form of classic statuary, or a realistic animal garden sculpture? It would be nice to buy all of the above and more but since most of us are on at least some sort of budget, we have to settle for one or two of our favorite choices. If you are looking to add a touch of class to the garden, you might want to go with something like Hebe the Goddess of Youth or Thalia, Muse of the Garden. If the backyard could stand for a more natural look, we have a large selection of animal garden statues, including such wild animals as the Lioness of Namibia.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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:

  • 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.
