Our Antique Garden

We adore antiques! Pieces with considerable age and high value continue to surprise us with how much character they accumulate over the many years. While pieces of artwork and furniture are at high stakes with antiquity, our eyes are on the antique pieces we can add to our garden! Take a look around our Los Angeles store for a peek at the pieces we have in store!

 Antique urns are perfect for potting or just to display solo. Cherubs always add charm to a garden!

So much detail is inlaid in the age of antiques! We love aged containers and articulate details acquired over time on antique pieces.

Something as subtle as hanging gates add an instant update; we love this idea in a garden! Aged, repurposed furniture potted with succulent arrangements is another way to add a piece of history to your garden!

Recipe Start by prepping all of your gourmet goodies and pack them for transportation; don't forget an ice pack if your items need to keep cool! Roll up your white blanket and tie with twine to keep it from unraveling. Stock your pantry basket or tote bag with plates, linens, glasses, bowls, & all of your gourmet necessities. Head to your perfect outdoor destination, lay out your blanket and unpack your basket of goodies! Mix & match using plates and bowls to showcase your food; share a great drink in a crystal glass!

Pssst! 4th of July is just two weeks away! This is the perfect setting for an early afternoon party, or a romantic setting for two. Don't forget the sunblock!
