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.

Backyard Birds Love Outdoor Water Garden Fountains

Portare Acqua Italian-Style Sculptural FountainGarden green space is a place for rejuvenation, relaxation, and much more. We decorate the backyard with beautiful resin garden statues, use this green space to cultivate herbs, flowers, and other plants, and admire the sights and sounds of nature. Birds are some of the most obvious visitors to the backyard and entertain us with bright colors and pleasant songs. They are natural living decor and one of the best best ways to attract and keep them in the backyard is with a fountain.

Many birds will come to bird feeders but they also love to visit fountains. They will drink the water, bathe in it, and play in the fountain, especially during hot weather. Birds will visit just about any fountain, including classic fountains like the Portare Acqua Italian-Style Sculptural Fountain. This exquisite decor is a fine addition to any yard although the birds might feel more at home at the St. Francis Life-Giving Waters Fountain.

If a modern fountain would look better in the garden, no problem, birds also love to visit those. The Cathedral Rocks Cascading Fountain and the Chimney Canyon Garden Fountain Sculpture are two of several beautiful, natural-themed fountains in our collection. Watch birds at these soothing fountains during the day and enjoy the illuminated appearance of their waters at night.

How to Decorate a Bigfoot Statue for the Fall

Bigfoot the Garden YetiAugust might be a lazy, hot time of the year but autumn is just around the corner. The kids will be headed back to school in a few weeks, and Halloween is just two months away! Fall is also a fun time of the year for garden decor, especially if you have a Bigfoot sculpture. Statues of Sasquatch look great any time of the year but look even better as the leaves change color and fall from the trees. It becomes easier for neighbors and guests to notice that Bigfoot in the yard and this acts as the perfect incentive for decorating your Bigfoot decor.

Nevertheless, Bigfoot doesn't have to stand out in the garden all on his own. The large, hairy biped can also be decorated in a number of ways for the autumn season, including the following:

  • Give Sasquatch a hat: Baseball season and cooler temperatures make hats popular during the fall. Adorn Bigfoot with a baseball cap showing the local team and he will fit right in.

 

  • A flannel scarf: To keep him warm on those first nights of frost, put a scarf on your Bigfoot sculpture that matches the colors of the fall foliage.

Resin Garden Statues of Kittens

Kitten Kaboodle Cat Welcome SignGreek garden statues and solemn stone garden angels lend a beautiful, dramatic look to the garden. When put on display in restaurants and hotels, they can also welcome guests in classic, elegant fashion. However, as much as we love classic garden statuary, few folks would refer to such sculptures as being "cute". There are other sculptures that are much more suited for giving a cute touch to the yard, and one of the best is the kitten statue.

Big imploring eyes, a cute little face, and funny antics make kittens incredibly adorable and that same heart warming look is shown by several of our baby cat statues. If you would like to welcome guests to the garden in super cute fashion, put out the Kitten Kaboodle Cat Welcome Sign. Your guests will love it but watch out for cat lovers because they just might try to steal it!

Complement this cute kitten welcome sign with another fun kitten statue in our collection, the Kitten Crowd Family Statue. This sculpture shows a realistic portrayal of a family of happy house cats and looks "purrfect" when placed near the back door or in a library or living room. While acquiring kitten statues for the garden and home, you won't go wrong with the "Cherished Cat" Persian Kitten Statue for the desk. These kitten statues also make great gifts!

Unique Design Toscano Skull Decor

Thunderspirit Goth BikerWhether decorating the home interior, garden, or business, the last thing we want is decor that is average, predictable, and easy to forget. If items that fit those boring categories make any impression, it's not going to be a good one. This is why we strive to find unique, high quality decor for any decorating need. At Design Toscano, it's apparent that we are acutely aware of how important it is to utilize unique decor. This is one of the reasons why we offer more than one Bigfoot statue, a large selection of high quality animal garden sculptures, and several items that feature skulls.

The large eyes and unusual shape of this skull statue are modeled after descriptions of the supposed aliens from the Roswell UFO crash. For a more decorative, contemporary skull, you might like the Thunderspirit Goth Biker Skull Statue.

They can be decorative fountains, enchanting garden fairies, or other decor that best suits our decorating needs. Decor can also be nothing more than cute and some of the most adorable garden sculptures are ones that show baby animals.

To find the cutest animal statues, browse the animal garden statue collection at Design Toscano. For example, let's take a look at Holland, the Lop-eared Bunny Statue.

Welcome Guests to the Backyard with Unique Garden Statues

Garden Iris Cast Stone Welcome SignThe backyard is an extension of the house but also acts as a separate, unique place. It's where we do our gardening, relax in a natural setting, swim in the pool, and host outdoor parties. When guests walk into the backyard, we want them to realize that they are entering a special place. One of the most straightforward means of accomplishing this is with "welcome decor". This is the decor that meets everyone who walks into the garden and can literally welcome them with a lettered sign or be a sculpture that acts as the first thing they see.

How guests are welcomed affects their overall experience and could make an impact on their views of the home owners. To give garden guests a unique, first class welcome, put the Garden Iris Cast Stone Welcome Obelisk Statue near the back gate. This wonderful cast stone obelisk is beautifully detailed with engravings of Iris plantings, a dragonfly, and two bees.

For a fun, easy-going garden, you might want to greet guests to the home or even front door of the house with the Delightful Dancing Ducks Welcome Sign. If you would rather show people that you aren't afraid at all of being creative and imaginative, you could also greet guests with a Bigfoot Statue.

Beautiful Weathervanes as Functional Garden Statuary

Strutting Rooster Full SizeAt Design Toscano, we carry far more than unique Bigfoot Statues, dozens of high quality stone garden angels, and beautiful furniture. Our collection also includes such functional decor as fountains, drain spouts, and weathervanes. Weathervanes in particular are wonderful decor for any home. These fun items hearken back to old fashioned times before any weather forecasters or electronic gadgets could tell us if a storm was headed our way. Instead, we had to rely on almanacs, educated guesses of community elders, and a good, strong weathervane.

The weathervane had to be strong enough to stand up to the biggest gusts of wind, hail, and winter snowstorms, and this is why they were crafted from metal. Our weathervanes follow that classic tradition, are fully functional, and will last for decades (if not centuries). Not to mention, they also look fantastic! Our Windblown Wicked Witch Metal Weathervane is beautifully detailed and is available as a garden stake or as a weathervane for the roof. For even spookier decor, get the Crescent Moon Vampire Bats Metal Weathervane!

We also have several beautiful copper weathervanes in our collection. The Strutting Rooster Full-Size Copper Weathervane shows the same classic rooster form found on old farmhouses in rural New England. If the house or garden would look better with a weathervane that has a more modern look, you might like the Celebration Wine Bottle Copper Weathervane.

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.

New Gargoyle Gifts for a Late Summer Garden

Ashes, the Gothic GargoyleThe dog days of summer are approaching and that could signal a time to make a few changes in backyard decor. Although we already have a huge selection of unique animal garden statues, beautiful garden fairies, and other decor to choose from, we also have several new arrivals that will add a unique touch to any backyard. Among those new arrivals are gargoyle figurines that add a fun look to the garden in addition to making wonderful gifts.

Victor the Vicious, Giant Gargoyle Sentry is a rough and tough, two foot tall gargoyle sculpture that looks right at home when set beside the back door. Get this detailed, intimidating gargoyle to entertain guests at your summer garden parties, or as a gift for a special person who appreciates everything Gothic. Victor also acts as wonderful decor in a night club, restaurants, and other places of business.

Ashes, the Gothic Gargoyle is another recent arrival. This classic, seated gargoyle is carefully crafted to resemble the old, weathered stone gargoyles that perch on old castles and Gothic cathedrals. Ashes will look right at home when set on top of Gothic furniture in the home, when used as decor in a bookstore or library, or as a cute little gargoyle sitting in the garden.

New and Unique Garden Statuary Gnomes

Bogey Burt Garden GnomeGnome statues are one of the more popular types of modern garden decor. We see those cute, friendly little beings in our neighbor's flowerbeds, many a backyard in town, and in our own gardens. It's easy to see why gnomes are popular because after all, what's not to like about gnomes? They sport brightly-colored clothes, have a cheerful appearance (except for our Zombie Gnombie), and wear funny, pointed hats. In other words, they are quaint, pleasant garden decor. However, the common nature of garden gnomes can also make it tough to find garden gnome sculptures that stand out from the crowd. This is why we carry a variety of garden gnomes that will always make a fun, unique statement in any yard.

Two of our new arrivals are no exception and make a fine gift for anyone who appreciates garden decor. The Bogey Burt Garden Gnome Statue has traded his garden spade for a driver and has the same look of concentrated hope on his face as the most serious of golfers. Bogey Burt will look perfect in the backyard of anyone who loves to walk the greens, on a putt-putt course, or at a country club.

Gezundheit Gunther Sneezing Garden Gnome Statue makes for a cute change from the hard working, smiling garden gnome. The bird on his finger better get ready to fly because it surely will with the huge sneeze coming its way!

Outdoor Garden Water Fountains for an Asian Garden

Cascading Bamboo Sculptural FountainGardens that feature Asian-themed decor can showcase a variety of peaceful, easy-going sculptures. Tranquil, meditative statues are often used because gardens in eastern Asia act as a peaceful place to contemplate, exercise, and relax. They also act as places where people can commune with and appreciate nature via carefully sculpted paths, trimmed trees, and beautiful plantings. In other words, the green space behind the home or place of business has the same purpose as gardens in Europe and North America. However, one of the biggest differences is related to decor.

Asian-themed decor tends to be humble and many statues are depictions of the Buddha or religious figures associated with Asian cultures. Fountains also play an important role but although the Medici Lion Four-Tier Fountain is nothing short of majestic, it doesn't work well with Asian decor. Save that fantastic fountain for a hotel lobby and buy other, more suitable fountains for the Asian-themed garden. These would be pieces like the Cascading Bamboo Sculptural Fountain and the beautiful Tranquil Springs Pagoda Garden Fountain. Both of these unique fountains add just the right touch of easy going, natural beauty to an Asian garden along with the soothing sounds of gently flowing water. Complement their beauty with the Bamboo Wellspring Pedestal Garden Fountain.

Exquisite Italian Greenmen Statues

Presence of Carnevale Greenman Wall SculptureGreenman sculptures can take more than one form. While classic greenman decor looks like a worn, wizened face surrounded by leaves and twigs, they can also take the form of small statues, and even decor reminiscent of Italian carnival masks. The fine details and life-like appearance of the Italian greenman statues are particularly impressive. The Presence of Carnevale Greenman Wall Sculpture is one such wall decor item. This unique decor enchants and intrigues with bright, knowing eyes, a hint of a grin, and realistic sculpted feathers. If you have been to Venice, Italy during "Carnevale", you may have seen feathered masks that look very much like this unique greenman.

Michelangelo's Florentine Man is another, impressive, Italian-style Greenman sculpture. This fine wall decor shows the same beautiful blend of man and the natural world as the Michelangelo renaissance original. The classic look of this greenman also makes it a distinguished piece for a garden wall, inside the home, or in a place of business.

One of the other Italian greenman statues in our collection is the stunning Vappa, Italian-style Wall Sculpture. This fine wall decor is closely modeled after carved faces seen on antique Italian fountains in such beautiful Tuscan cities as Siena, Florence, and Montecatini. It will also be a unique addition to the garden or any of the rooms in your home.

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.
