Even though our yard is not "perfect" yet, I still like to dress it up with decorative accents to show our personality. I love garden sculptures, fountains, and other fun outdoor decorations. They really can make a space feel comfortable and homey. Our yards are, in fact, an extension of our homes, and should be treated as such. Some of our best quality time together as a family happens on the deck and in our yard.
This year, I decided to jazz up my backyard a little bit with the help of Oriental Trading. Yes.....THAT Oriental Trading. Shocked? This company offers so much more than party favors and supplies! They've also got wonderful decor for the home, inside and out.
I was able to find some pretty awesome stuff. I mean, super awesome. First of all, I have always wanted a Buddha. There's just something so peaceful and tranquil about depictions of Buddha, and they help create a nice, relaxing space. I always told anyone who would listen that when I finally owned a home of my own, I would have a garden Buddha. And here he is, thanks to Oriental Trading. We named him Fred. He's actually a Buddha Birdfeeder, and bird seed can be placed within his clasped hands and on his lap.
I do not see this exact product listed anymore, but here is a similar frog garden statue to check out if you're interested. Just click here.
That's right. My tree has a face. Kind of makes me think of the Ents in the Lord of the Rings movies!
This funny face features eyes that glow in the dark, as well as a place to put bird seed. (In the mouth.) So not only does this add a touch of whimsy to your yard, it also attracts beautiful songbirds of summer.
