Weekly Spotlight: Fairy Garden Accessories

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

Our next Garden Month topic is Fairy Gardens! These fun spaces can be quite elaborate or as simple as creating a mini trail with rocks in a flower garden and arranging some moss to look like a wreath. If you would like to add some fairies and similar accessories to a fairy garden of your own, look no further than our web exclusives. Here are five fairy-related accents you can use to create a whimsical outdoor arrangement in your garden.

Miniature Fairy Garden Bench, Chair, Trellis | Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

  • The miniature Rustic Chair, Garden Trellis and Rustic Bench are all made from the same antiqued metal, which makes a warm, complementary addition to an outdoor space. If you have small plants or vines in a garden, the trellis is also functional!
  • We have a small assortment of miniature fairies, but the Best Friends and Honey Bunny fairies are two of the cutest. With small animals in their arms, these figures are true beings of nature. And if you are interested, you can find our other fairy figurines and accents here.

Weekly Spotlight: Garden Stakes Under $50

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

April is Garden Month, so every Weekly Spotlight throughout the month of April will be dedicated to garden decor you can find at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop. We hope you see something (or a few things!) you like and are able to make your garden as beautiful as can be. First up: Garden stakes under $50.

Teal Terracotta Bird Rain Gauge | Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

The heavy-duty iron Garden Stake is simple yet versatile. Its curved hook is perfect for hanging plants, lanterns, wind chimes and other garden decor throughout your yard.

This Rusted Sun Garden Stake offers primitive appeal and sunny charm in your garden or in a flower bed (there are eight more complementary styles to choose from, too!).

Our Terracotta Bird Rain Gauge can be staked into the ground or in a flower pot. Besides adding sophistication to your outdoor living spaces, this outdoor home accent will tell you how much rain has fallen outside.

Iron Bird Flag Stake | Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

Beehive Rabbit Garden Stake | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopIron Bird Flag Stake is a customer favorite, and offers a couple different functions in addition to being a stylish accent for your yard. The extend arm can hold a decorative garden flag, the leaf next to the bird can be filled with birdseed or you can let rainwater pool inside to make a little bird bath.

New in our Spring 2018 catalog, the Beehive Rabbit Garden Stake is one of the most decorative garden stakes we offer. The metal surface is treated to withstand outdoor elements and sunshine, and offers a cheerful welcome, especially when placed next to a front door or porch.

End Note: When shopping for any garden stake that will be serving double or triple duty by holding a potted plant or bird seed (like the first Garden Stake and our Iron Bird Flag Stake), we recommend looking at those with double bottom prongs to ensure stability in the ground.

Get the Look: Cozy Furnished Patio

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

Fall has officially started, but there’s no need to bring all of your parties and celebrations indoors just yet. Create a warm, romantic and peaceful patio or entertaining space outdoors to soak up as much of the evening sun as possible with friends and loved ones before – dare we say it – snow arrives. Here is a little inspiration, and below, how you can get the look with home accents from Sturbridge Yankee Workshop.

You will of course need seating. Our Wrought Iron Lattice Bench is the best option for weatherproof, durable and timeless outdoor seating, and as you can see in the image above, comfort is added with throw blankets and pillows (Teak furniture is another great option).

You can choose to show off the buffalo check or decorative style of your bench cushion, or tuck coordinating throws around it, providing additional coziness and a way to stay warm on chillier nights.

Vintage Tin Lantern Accent LightBuffalo Check ThrowFor lighting (in addition to a warm fire), outdoor candles or lanterns will create a soft glow and add decorative appeal to the space. Our Vintage Tin Lantern Light is made specifically for the outdoors, and even has a timer so you don’t have to worry about forgetting to turn it off. You could also turn your Mason jars into accent lights with a Solar LED cover that will fit any standard opening.

So pick a seat, enjoy the comforts of these functional and decorative [outdoor] home accents, and gather together with friends and family outdoors this fall!
