Why You Need a Terracotta Pot

Living in California we reap the benefits of beautiful weather almost everyday. This helps our gardens shine and grow to their fullest potential. Terra cotta pots fit into any landscape + garden with their neutral color and design. Continue reading for reasons why every California gardener needs to incorporate these pots into their landscaping!

While lighter pots are easier to transport, they move or break in certain weather conditions. A heavier pot can withstand California’s windiest days, especially when the Santa Ana winds are blowing.Terra Cotta pots are able to withstand this type of weather due to their heavier design. Although they are much lighter than stone or concrete pots, which makes them easier to transport.

Plant roots require oxygen to prosper. Clay pots are breathable which allow oxygen to enter the container, by doing this it aerates the soil. Also, they also absorb the extra moisture which prevent over-watering. This will ensure your plants live a long & healthy life.

Freezing weather can damage terra cotta pots by cracking and breaking. Since weather in California rarely drops below 60 degrees, we do not need to worry about weather damaging our pots. We can guarantee that our clay pots will last a long time. They are relatively cheap in price, which make them a quality purchase.

A White Halloween

When decorating your home or front porch for Halloween, take a unique and different approach by using all white decor. Our first instinct when searching for the halloween and fall decorations is to use oranges, reds, and yellows. This time around, try incorporating white accessories that are neutral and match any interior space. Whether you are hosting a party or sprucing up your front porch, white decor is a chic look and unusual way to decorate for the holiday. Keep reading for some fun ideas!

White pumpkins especially are chic and can stay in style for many months. Try using white pumpkins as a centerpiece for a dinner party or on your mantel, they are an easy way to bring white decor in full effect. Our favorite way to use white pumpkins is as a succulent vase. It is a fun way to incorporate greenery in your home as well.

Skeletons are a simple way to make your home feel a tad spooky. You can dress your skeleton in decaying foliage which gives the skeleton contrast and more impact. Using accessories such as spiders or bats will also help add a Halloween touch.

Another great way to show off your creativity is by incorporating white vases for your flowers. A skull vase is easy to make, and can make a bold statement when combined with the right flowers. You can add a touch of color with purple and orange flowers, or going really dark with black roses. Allow yourself to find a vase that fits your personality and style, and create a unique look for the holidays.

Unique coffee table books are hard to come by. Finding one that you feel fits your friend or family personality is such a compliment. Not only is it a great decor piece, it can be entertainment for your guest as well. You do not need to be a bookworm to appreciate the fun content in a table book!

Small plants, such as a succulents, make wonderful hostess gifts because they are very easy to maintain and look great in any space. Matching the container of the succulent to the aesthetic of the party-giver’s home is a special way you can personalize it. Succulents last forever with minimal maintenance, and are a great alternative to a bouquet which will wither within a few days.

Kitchen supplies are always a great idea especially if you are attending a dinner party! If your host is a veteran of dinner parties a new set of utensils or a fun cheese plate is a great idea. If you want to add something a little extra pair the cheese plate with your favorite wine!

Although candles are a common gift, sharing a scent that you love with a friend is special. And you can never have too many candles! Try finding a seasonal scents so that your host can get in the holiday spirit. Our Beverly store has Voluspa candles in light & fresh scents that everyone will love.

Blue might seem an unconventional color for fall, but when combined with rustic brown plates and haphazard glassware, it makes a wonderful statement. The pop of blue is an exciting alternative to the usual colors associated with fall like brown, red, and orange.

When you are working with a simple table design, it is important to partner the table with an eye-catching pattern. The animal hide chairs above perfectly compliment the dishware and make a great statement!

Rather than going for a standard wreath or candle centerpiece, try incorporating something more unique. The centerpiece is where you can let your creative side shine! The table above conveys a rustic look with metal plant stands, old books, and tree-branches scattered down the center. When layering objects on your table, make sure to use dense objects as a base for more whimsical decor. The combination of books and branches looked great with the plants + white containers!

We hope this helps with any fall parties you are hosting, and remember to be creative! If you are looking to host an event in the near future we would love to help. Stop by our Los Angeles store to shop all of our fall decor!
