Halloween 2017 at Roger's Gardens
Roger's Gardens is a garden store in the Corona del Mar/Newport Beach area that transforms one of its buildings into whimsical Halloween-themed displays every year. They always open their Halloween displays on Labor Day weekend, and it's a tradition for me to check them out this time every year as it marks my kick off to all things autumn and Halloween (even though I celebrate Halloween every day in my heart)! It is always a treat to see the theme Roger's Gardens has chosen for the year come to life, and shop for some Halloween trinkets while I'm there.
This year's theme was Magic and Mayhem, paying homage to a certain wizarding world. I grabbed my vegan pumpkin spice latte from Peet's Coffee, despite the projected 100 degree temps, and hopped on my broomstick to fly over to Roger's Gardens to take a gander at their spellbinding Halloween displays. You can join me in the fun by checking out my photos below:

I love the Diagon Alley vibe, especially with all the signs!

Boo-tiful vintage-inspired decorations - this section reminded me of
Honeydukes from Harry Potter since there was candy piled high in
big jars and bowls, and it was so bright and colorful!
That black cat though!
These guys were one of my favorite pieces
These vintage-looking ghost lights were so precious, but unfortunately they
were covered in glitter (though you can't really tell from the photo).
Join us for charms class
Mister Spooky has a thing for old pianos, and spent some time playing this
beautiful old thing!
These owls totally reminded me of Hedwig in Harry Potter!
An homage to Care of Magical Creatures class, perhaps?! That tree
stump reminds me of a mandrake root.
RIP salt and pepper
Reproductions of old games and toys
Love the expressions on these pumpkin witches
I loved the little dishes they had, which they've had the last few years as well
How I feel when Halloween is near
Adorable little jack-o-lantern jars
I only picked up a small dish and a little figurine, as Roger's Gardens tends to be on the pricey side. I love going mostly to look at their boo-tiful displays, though, so it was a fun visit even though I didn't buy much.
