I’m so excited to announce the grand opening of Magnolia Hollow! When I first saw this fabulous shop kit from The Curated Farmhouse, I immediately imagined a seasonal home decor store and since fall is my favorite season, I thought it was the perfect time to get started. Next, I got to work on the store’s branding and design. I chose one of my favorite flowers, the magnolia, as the motif for the design, and I love the soft, muted neutral shades that go with it.
So, let’s go on a little tour of the exterior of the shop today!
But first, what grand opening would be complete without balloons and a ribbon cutting ceremony?
I made the marigolds from a kit from Moonflower Miniatures, and the amazing hanging planters came from My Mini Front Porch, too. I love the pop of color they brought to the exterior.
This shelf was part of the shop kit, and it’s a great way to display some additional products outside. I made the trucks from ornaments I got at Hobby Lobby. I designed all the labels, signage, packaging and tea towels myself. I used actual agate slices to make the serving trays, and beads to make the fragrance diffusers. The candle warmer on the top shelf actually lights up, too!
I sculpted the pumpkins for the trucks from polymer clay, and I used dried flowers, as well. The beautiful little potted mums came from Mimi’s Mini Boutique Co.
This little standing display was also included with the shop kit, and I thought it would be the perfect place to display all those little impulse buys: soaps, scent sachets, magazines, potpourri, etc.
I love cinnamon pine cones, so I used tiny little alder cones to make my own packages of them.
I designed the Magnolia Hollow Living magazines and the calendars, as well. I also made tiny little pumpkins from polymer clay in mesh bags as vase filler. And let’s not forget the bags of potpourri!
I even made little branded shopping bags, because… why not?
I hope you enjoyed the tour of the outside of Magnolia Hollow! Stay tuned for a look at everything inside!
