Being a Wacoan means that I get a sneak peak into all things new at Magnolia Market in Waco, Texas. As a result, I am sharing what is new for spring at the Silos. Let me take you on a tour inside Magnolia Market.
First, I heard Chip and Joanna are adding a coffee shop into the mix! They purchased a building within the block of Magnolia Market, which used to house a cross-fit gym on 8th and Webster Ave. They have not broken ground yet, but I will keep y’all in the loop!
For now, you can find Jimmy Don from HGTV’s Fixer Upper stationed with his trailer of metal art on 8th street behind Magnolia Market’s parking lot. Fixer Upper fans love to stop by to meet Jimmy Don, and he seems to really enjoy meeting new people. I have only heard nice things about him. Alongside Jimmie Don is the Waco Tours bus, owned by two couples from Fixer Upper. Well, technically one was single, owner David Ridley, was Fixer Upper’s “most eligible bachelor,’ but since appearing on the show, he has married. Sorry, ladies! I recommend the tour if you are looking to explore Waco and drive by a few Fixer Upper’s from the show.
1. February Issue of Magnolia Journal
Magnolia releases the Magnolia Journal magazine 4 times per year – February, May, August and November. The seasonal displays coincide with the release of the magazine, which means the latest issue hits the news stands today, February 1st. Copies of the February issue are already in Magnolia Market! Joanna Gaines does an amazing job of creating a beautiful brand, and sharing a united message between the magazine and Magnolia Market. The elaborate installations at Magnolia Market are first used as props during photoshoots for the magazine. For spring at the silos, the message is ‘the world needs who you were made to be.’ It appears on the front cover of the Magnolia Journal with Joanna Gaines holding an umbrella!
2. New Spring Displays
The seasonal installations are my favorite reason to visit Magnolia Market at the Silos. The installations are done the Sunday prior to the release of the magazine, which release the beginning of every third month. Consequently, Joanna Gaines usually gives us a sneak peak on her instagram stories. I love the creative team at Magnolia, y’all! This tree is made with real tree branches and dip dyed paper flowers attached to the branches. It takes weeks to build these displays.
Can they ‘bee’ any more creative??? Bee nests are recreated from an assortment of rope and jute. Then, they are suspended above the kitchen island and displayed among stacks of vintage bee crates. Fresh honey and herbs are stored on open shelves in the kitchen area that resembles a home straight out of Fixer Upper.
Spring wouldn’t be ‘spring’ without flowers! The faux flowers are so pretty and life like. For instance, I thought these seedlings growing inside glass jars were real. They are not! Every season is beautiful, but spring at the Silos my be my favorite time to visit.
3. Mugs for Valentine’s Day
Most of the ceramic mugs at Magnolia Market are hand thrown by Black Oak Art in Waco, Texas. In addition, each dining table at Magnolia Table is styled with handmade vases from Black Oak Art! Jonathan Martin is the artist and owner and has previously appeared on Fixer Upper with Joanna Gaines. They have teamed up to make ceramic mugs for the Magnolia restaurant and shop, but this is a special edition mug. I love the blush pink mug with a heart imprinted for Valentine’s Day! There is also a pink sugar bowl and creamer. Too cute, y’all!
4. New Restrooms
If you have been to the Silos, you know that the previous restrooms at Magnolia Market were tiny and only included 2 stalls! However, these new bathrooms would fit in any modern farmhouse. Of course, they include subway tile, and a chic interior industrial vibe. The exterior is a beautiful wood and white combination.
5. A Water Station
Located next to the Magnolia gardens is a a water station to fill up your water bottle or grab a drink. If you noticed the bowl next to the it, good eye. Magnolia Market is also pet friendly, so you can take your dog inside the Silos grounds and inside the Magnolia Market store. Just not on the actual lawn for obvious reasons! Since the temperatures in Texas get hot during the summer, I think a water station is a nice addition.
More of what you can expect at Magnolia Market: Spring at the Silos
February is a great time to come to Waco, if you don’t like crowds! That means easier parking, less waiting in line and more room to take in the Magnolia experience. During some Magnolia events, I have seen lines wrap around the buildings. Consequently, Magnolia has to limit the number of people inside due to occupancy rules, so you could be waiting an hour just to enter the shop. The whole month of March into the first of April stays busy with Spring at the Silos and spring breakers from all over the U.S. Currently, shops are getting in lots of new product from the January markets, and prepping for spring breakers. Therefore, come early and you can have first pick!
I hope you have enjoyed a sneak peak into spring at the Silos at Magnolia Market! Spring at the Silos is March 14-16, 2019! Will you be attending this year?
