Each year, I look forward to visiting Roger’s Gardens in Newport Beach to see their Halloween and Christmas displays. I went to Roger’s about a month ago and then again last weekend (with my parents). This year’s Halloween exhibit is called Blackstone Theater. All the rooms are painted black and most rooms have chandeliers and velvet draping … as you might see in a theater.
When you enter from the orchid rooms (those of you that have been to Roger’s will know what I’m talking about), you see a large mirror with crystal chandeliers and cob webs. They sell the beaded cob webs … I had to get one of those!
My mom was disgusted by this rat-infested sofa. She wouldn’t get near it. I thought it was great! But I’m not willing to tear up any of my upolstered furniture to create the look at home.
This year they had a lot of black and white decorations. They had a room filled with skeletons, one with white pumpkins, another with skeleton heads and plenty of black and white Halloween dishes.
There was a very large book case that has all types of pumpkin faces displayed. These two were some of my favorites. Aren’t the faces incredible?
If you get a chance, it’s certainly worth a visit to Roger’s. The Christmas displays opened to the public last Friday. I’ll be going in a couple of weeks with girlfriends.
Happy Haunting …
