2021 Fall Displays at the Silos at Waco

2021 Fall Displays at Magnolia Market

When you walk into Magnolia Market, at the Silos at Waco, the aroma of pumpkin chai, one of the seasonal candles, fills the air. Then, pops of eye candy consume you. Floor to ceiling Fall inspiration adorns the shop, owned by Chip and Joanna Gaines, stars of the home renovation show, Fixer Upper. Bundles of dried florals and stems combined with hanging botanical prints create beautiful works of art displayed inside Magnolia Market.

Each season, the magazine, Magnolia Journal, tells a story with a particular theme or idea. Consequently, the shops at the Silos at Waco depict the same message, color scheme, and design elements. For example, 2019 Fall showcased displays created with pages of books and individually dyed leaves of a tree to capture the idea of ‘wholeness’ and importance of each part of our story. Before that, 2018 Fall shared the idea of ‘being made ready,’ for any season of life that you are in. With larger than life handmade weavings, suspended jars of honey and hundreds of dipped paint brushes, the process of art reflects the stages of life.

Handmade Visual Displays

Botanical images are printed on silk chiffon panels with a process called eco-printing. Magnolia has a visual display team that creates each piece by hand, as they do all of their seasonal displays. Then, copper pipes suspended from the ceiling showcase the detail in each panel.

A large floral display perched above a farmhouse table is the show stopper. Different shades of the color burgundy dye each stem. So many hours of labor went into creating these inspiring displays.

Embracing the Winding Way Forward’

This Fall, the message, ‘embracing the winding way forward‘ welcomes guests at the entry and throughout the magazine. Joanna encourages us to find the joy in today’s shifting world with a positive mindset. She writes…

“I know I’m not the only one who has felt this way—misunderstood, misrepresented, missed altogether. Not by a long stretch. And I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of feeling stuck in the muck and mire of a social culture that is robbing us all of deep and true connection—of joy, peace, honest understanding, and empathy.

Maybe you are too. And maybe now is the time to declare that we’re not willing to give that up. Not yet. Not when they are the very things that make life worth living and loving.

… more light than dark, more life than death, more hope than anger, more joy than sorrow, more gratitude among us than we sometimes remember. So let’s fight for a world that won’t so easily forget. A world that is slow to anger and rich in compassion. A world that would rather be loving than be right. A world that keeps moving forward. And I can think of no better time than now.”

Joanna Gaines, Magnolia Journal Fall 2021

Fall Home Decor Trends at the Silos at Waco

Here are a few decor trends that I noticed inside Magnolia Market. If you can’t make it to the Silos at Waco, you can anything in the shop, online from Magnolia’s Fall collection, here.

  • Color – earthy neutrals and muted jewel tones like burgundy, ochre, rust
  • Metals – copper, brass, black
  • Texture – velvet, chunky woven, dried florals
  • Design – simple, clean lines and mixing modern with vintage

The antique mantles are a permanent installation. However, they are restyled with seasonal decor every 3 months.

Gardens at the Silos

The garden area contains raised beds filled with a variety of chrysanthemums, salvia and coreopsis flowers. In addition, the colors of Fall fill planter boxes along the green spaces and six boutique shops.

Looking for more Magnolia?

Be sure to visit the Silos Baking Co bakery for the BEST cupcakes ever! These are definitely worth the wait! However, if the line is long, check the bakery food truck for the same great tasting cupcakes. It’s the air stream located across from the whiffle ball field. The Fall cupcake flavors are pumpkin spice, campfire cupcake and apple pie. I can’t wait to try the oatmeal cream pie cookies, too.

Lastly, you can find more blog posts about the Silos at Waco, here. A follower favorite is ‘How to Plan the Perfect Trip to Magnolia‘ which includes places to stay, eat and shop. However, if you want to see pretty pictures of the Silos at Waco at sunset, then check out ‘A Photographic Tour of the Silos.’ But first, pin now, visit later!

Magnolia Home Furniture Showroom at the Silos in Waco, Texas 

Magnolia Home Furniture Showroom

At the Silos in Waco, Texas 

The Magnolia Home Furniture Showroom is located at the Silos in downtown Waco, Texas. Specifically, it is near the Magnolia Press coffee shop and future entrance of Magnolia which is being currently renovated.  

You can see progress on the $10 million expansion, here.  The renovations includes amazing outdoor spaces with water features, an addition of a local, historical church and 6 new retail spaces.  

The Magnolia Home storefront opened in early August. Furniture purchased at the showroom can be shipped to your home. However, you can find everything in the showroom on Magnolia’a online shop including furniture, home decor, and live plants. 



The Magnolia visual merchandising team did a beautiful job of showcasing pieces from the Magnolia Home collection. In addition, the showroom provides inspiration to decorate your own home. 

The spaces are styled by living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, entryways and home offices. Each space is well designed, yet feels warm and inviting. The living room spaces quickly became my favorite view.

Magnolia Home Brand

The Loloi Rug Collection with Joanna Gaines includes pillows, throw blankets and rugs.

In addition, the Magnolia Home paint display located at both entrances of the store is so creative.  

Other favorites include the Magnolia candles scented for each season. Plus, copies of the Magnolia Journal magazine and books authored by Chip and Joanna Gaines are available to purchase. 

Here is a look at the checkout counter at the Magnolia Home Furniture Showroom.  The deconstructed rug displays one of Magnolia’s core beliefs…

We believe in home.

A Photographic Tour of the Silos in Waco, Texas

Tour the Silos in Waco, Texas 

If you have visited Magnolia in Waco, Texas, you have seen the crowded market or the long line outside the Silos Baking Co bakery. It’s Fixer Upper fans and decor lovers dream to visit. For this reason, many people describe it as ‘Disney World’ for adults

Due to Covid 19 in early 2020, many tourist attractions in the world, including the Silos in Waco, have been closed. A few days after Chip and Joanna Gaines cancelled Spring at the Silos in mid March, the ‘shelter in place’ was also encouraged in Waco. The Silos in Waco have been closed since, and have yet to post an opening date. I don’t think that anyone expected most of Waco, or any city, to be shut down for two months. 

Now, downtown Waco has fallen quiet. The streets are fairly empty. However, it was a perfect time to capture the beauty of Magnolia in Waco. I hope you enjoy this photographic tour around the Silos until the gates open again. 


Magnolia Market at the Silos 

This is the main entrance of the Silos. It is flanked by Magnolia Market, the store, and Silos Baking Co, the bakery.  Plus, the pair of Silos in Waco which originally caught Chip and Joanna Gaines’ eye, and now hold the attention of the rest of the world, too. 


Magnolia Seed and Supply 

Behind the Silos, a garden area is filled with seasonal plants. In addition, there is the Magnolia Seed & Supply shop, a greenhouse and raised flower beds. 

In addition, the garden area is currently being transitioned to their summer plants. If you didn’t know, they replant the flower beds and update the installations inside Magnolia Market 4 times a year to coincide with the Magnolia Journal magazine release. The summer edition of Magnolia Journal was released last week. 



Silos Baking Co

Silos Baking Co is a small but mighty bakery. The inside is quite charming, and the outside is decorated with planter boxes of lush greenery.


Magnolia Press Coffee Co

The Magnolia Press Coffee Shop is the latest, but wont be the last of the Silos in Waco construction. It’s a beautiful mix of modern and vintage vibes. 

The front of the coffee shop faces Webster Avenue, while the back opens up to a beautiful patio area and ‘to go’ window. The back of the building connects to the future furniture showroom set to open in late 2020.

Magnolia Market and Spring at the Silos 2020

Spring at the Silos 2020

This year, Spring at the Silos is March 12-14, 2020. For those that cannot make it, I am sharing a peak into Magnolia Market to see the latest Spring installation. If you want to see what Spring at the Silos actually looks like, here are pictures from last year’s event in Waco, Texas.

What would Spring be without a bountiful of tulips? The lead gardener at Magnolia told me that he planted over  1,000 tulips on the Magnolia grounds a few weeks ago. So, I can’t wait to get pictures of the tulips in full bloom. But first, let’s take a look inside Magnolia Market.


Seasonal Installation for Spring at the Silos 2020

The Spring installation has been set at Magnolia Market in Waco, Texas.  This season, the displays consist of hanging and standing clusters of cacti and handmade flowers. Would you believe the tall cacti are made from pool noodles and jute rope?


The visual marketing team at Magnolia Market is so creative. For instance, they take an idea and carry the message throughout the season at the Silos and in the quarterly magazine.  For Spring, the Magnolia message is a reminder to ‘seek purpose in the everyday.’

The flowers in the displays are hand made from coffee filters or crepe paper and mixed with faux greenery.

Home Decor Trends for Spring at the Silos

Here are the decor trends that I noticed at Magnolia Market for Spring 2020.

  • terracotta pots and the color itself
  • warm pastels like coral pink, mustard yellow, rusty oranges
  • rattan and bamboo materials especially in trays or baskets
  • textured pillows with a boho vibe
  • vibrant colored greenery

The Magnolia Market store is two levels.  The first level pictured here consists of a kitchen area and a wall of book shelves and styled mantles.  Of course, each season these mantles get styled differently.

Then, the bottom level of the store consists of Chip’s corner, t-shirts, signs, books, candles, etc… You can see a complete tour of that space last Spring, here.


Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Places to Visit

When visiting ‘The Silos’ in Waco, Texas, don’t forget to check out these Magnolia stops too.  Most importantly, Magnolia Market is located within the Silos and is located at 601 Webster Ave.

  • Magnolia Market – main store with lawn and food trucks including Magnolia Table & Bakery food truck
  • Magnolia Feed and Seed – garden area on the Silos grounds with small shop, greenhouse, flower beds
  • Silos Baking Co – bakery located next to main entrance of Magnolia Market
  • Magnolia Press – coffee shop, located within the same block as Magnolia Market, inside & outside sitting
  • Magnolia Table –  breakfast and lunch only restaurant, will need to drive or ride Waco Shuttle
  • Little Shop on Bosque – discount Magnolia products, will need to drive

Coming soon…

  • The Magnolia Home furniture show room is located behind Magnolia Press and looks complete from the outside. However, it has not opened yet. So, I assume it will be included in the October grand re-opening of the Silos.
  • By October 2020, there will be new additions to Magnolia Market.  For instance, this will include a concession stand and a whiffle ball court. Plus, a few small retail spaces, restrooms, and a reconstructed Waco historical church surrounding another open lawn area.  You can see complete plans for this space at Magnolia’s website, here.
  • In addition, the Magnolia hotel will be located about 5 blocks from Magnolia Market at 701 Washington Ave. However it will not open until 2021. The hotel will be renovated inside the Waco Grand Karem Shrine building.
  • Speaking of renovations, the Gaines’ purchased the Cottonland Castle located at 3300 Austin Ave in Waco last year.  However, work on the castle has not begun.

2019 Fall Visual Displays at Magnolia Market

2019 Fall Visual Displays at Magnolia Market

I recently visited at the Silos in Waco, Texas to check out the 2019 Fall visual displays at Magnolia Market.  If you love Chip and Joanna Gaines from HGTV’s Fixer Upper show, then you are probably already planning your trip to Waco, too!  If not, let me persuade you! Just take a look at the newest seasonal installation at Magnolia Market in the Fall. Everything from the rich Autumn colors of life life stems and florals to handmade coffee mugs will have you craving everything Fall!  Now, let’s look at what stood out to me in the 2019 Fall visual displays at Magnolia Market.

Magnolia Market’s Fall Inspiration


2019 Magnolia Market Fall Color Inspiration

A few weeks ago, I saw this Fall color mood board on Magnolia’s instagram page. Consequently, I was immediately excited for Fall. I knew that these colors were a sneak peak into Magnolia MarketT.   Naturally, I am drawn to the cool colors like sky, lake and river.  However, the warm colors are so rich and inviting, too.



2019 Magnolia Market Fall Theme: Wholeness

Each season, there is a theme in the Magnolia Journal magazine that carries into the displays at Magnolia Market. In the article, Joanna Gaines shares her thoughts which correlate with the season of life that she is currently in.  For example, in the Fall 2019 magazine, the message focuses on the pursuit of ‘wholeness.’  Joanna discusses why she believes it is hard to achieve balance in her life.  Therefore, she focuses on the importance of being whole in relationships, family and work.  We can see the story unfold in the creative displays at Magnolia Market.



2019 Magnolia Market Fall Kitchen Display

Joanna Gaines knows that great design includes classic pieces like white dishes, simple black elements to contrast and wood tones to add warmth and character. This is exemplified from the kitchen design to the decor pieces in her kitchen collection. You can always add a pop of color in seasonal decorations like florals or linens.  I love how this kitchen at Magnolia Market changes each season.  For example, it always boasts the latest color trends, yet remains classic!


Handmade, New but not Vintage Finds For Sale

If you have been to Magnolia Market at the Silos, you know that they sale a variety of handmade and new (mass produced or reproduction) home decor furnishings and souvenirs. For example, you can get the Magnolia signature coffee mug handmade from local potter, Black Oak Art, or a souvenir style campfire mug with the Magnolia logo. If you can’t make the trip to Waco, Texas, don’t worry.  All items for sale at Magnolia Market are available on their Magnolia website.

I did notice that they are currently using their line of Magnolia Home furniture in store displays, like this stained wood and black cabinet on the right.  For instance, this is the first time that I have seen this as they usually stage with vintage furniture pieces or custom builtins.  However, they do not sell their Magnolia Home or vintage furniture at the Silos.

Magnolia Market uses a variety of creative hand built displays, vintage furniture and custom built cabinetry to display goods and inspire visitors. For instance, the handmade umbrellas from the Spring installation were actually for sale at their Little Shop on Bosque. The Little Shop on Bosque sales last season, overstock & slightly damaged goods there, too.


2019 Fall Magnolia Market Garden

The outdoor garden area at the Silos includes a small greenhouse, storage shed, a ‘Feed & Seed’ shop that carries gardening supplies. In addition, many rows of beautiful flowers including zinnias in a variety of fall colors are planted.
