Oriental Trading Review

I moved into my new house about a month ago.  This is the first home that I've lived in in my adult life that I have a backyard and front garden area.  I grew up in a house with a large front and back yard, but since I've been on my own I've lived in apartments.  Now that summer is here, it's time to make sure your yard is full of beautiful multi-colored flowers and tons of outdoor garden decor. I've definitely made sure my yard is festive and full of color.  Pick your favorite flowers that will make you smile each time you walk past them.

Oriental Trading carries an irresistible amount of fun value-priced products for every occasion.  If you're on the hunt for party supplies, novelties, toys, crafts, and party favors, you've come to the right spot. I do believe Oriental Trading has everything you could ever need to throw any themed party possible for your child. Don't forget to use the company for wedding supplies and bridal shower needs too.  If you're throwing a baby shower for a friend or relative, all of your baby needs are covered, thanks to Oriental Trading. Please keep them in mind for your summer luau, BBQ, or pool party too. All of the products will help make your next party or event extra special and fun.

Since moving into my new house, I've been very interested in trying to give my yard as much personality and pizazz as possible.  I was inspired by my neighbor who has tons of wonderful and very pretty garden decor.  You can find practically anything in her yard including butterflies, dragon flies, windchimes, etc.  I knew that her garden was putting mine to shame! When I stumbled across Oriental Trading's outdoor decor section, I knew I had to have some of the decor in my yard.

I was fortunate enough to receive three items for review.  I was sent the Garden Frog Statue, Garden Glazing Balls, and Hedgehog Family.  I was very excited when the package arrived and couldn't wait to put all the items outside.

These stained glass garden glazing balls are so pretty! The vivid colors are featured in blue, pink, and green.  You can put them together in your yard for a colorful addition, or use them in separate areas of your yard too.  I chose to put them by the plants that I have near my front walkway.  They break up the green of the plants and add some nice personality.  The set is weighted and has a metal stake that securely allows them to stay in the ground. When the sun shines on them it reflects the stained glass and it's very beautiful.  I am very happy with the quality of them and look forward to enjoying them for some time to come.  

How cute is this hedgehog family? It certainly looks like a momma and her babies! These resin hedgehogs love hanging out on decks, porches, and in backyards.  As long as they're outside, they're happy.  I love that they add a touch of whimsical fun to my backyard.  I thought about putting them by the steps of my house but felt like they didn't fit in there.  I chose to put them in the backyard and they fit much better there.  I showed the set to my dog Carolyn and she licked the momma hedgehog, so she certainly gives her stamp of approval.  The set is lightweight but quality made.  They make me smile each time I look at them.  

This frog is certainly lost and confused! Perhaps he's looking for his butterfly friend who is not too far away at all?  I placed the statue also in the same area of my front walkway where the glazed garden balls are.  I think the statue fits in well there and adds some personality to the plants.  He is resin and very lightweight if you desire to move him from place to place in your yard.  He is just adorable and I really enjoy seeing him each time I pass him by.  

I'm extremely satisfied with my garden decor and look forward to adding more additions in the months to come.  Why not go ahead and add some fun to your yard today?
