Earlier this month I was so excited to make a trip to Magnolia Market at the Silos in Waco, TX. My hubby had a conference in Austin, and since it is less than 2 hours from Waco, of course I tagged along – I wasn’t going to let him get that close without taking me with him! So glad we added some extra time to make the drive to Magnolia Market. 🙂
It was a gorgeous day, lots of blue sky and sunshine. We arrived just in time for lunch. There are several food trucks on the grounds with everything from gourmet grilled cheese to BBQ to coffee. They have lots of picnic tables set up so you can enjoy your lunch while watching families playing on the lawn – throwing the frisbee and football and just running around having fun!
We spent a little time after lunch enjoying the grounds. The swings were so much fun and this bench was nestled among fresh evergreen trees – it smelled heavenly!
There is a cute little building that houses Magnolia Seed & Supply. It is filled with fun gardening supplies including packets of seeds to plant your own garden. In the area in front of the building is a garden filled with beds for flowers and vegetables.
And of course we took advantage of this cool vintage truck for a photo op. 🙂
After playing it was time for some shopping! Magnolia Market is everything you would think it would be if you are a fan of Fixer Upper on HGTV. It is filled with gorgeous decor for every room in your home as well as t-shirts, mugs, and, this time of year, cute Christmas items. Joanna’s signature style is everywhere and Chip has his own corner with tools, hats, and other fun things. Here are a couple of shots from inside the store. I wish I had taken more – I was just so busy looking at everything!!! There is so much attention to detail – the displays are wonderful! And just so you know – there is a FedEx counter in the lower level. Made it much easier for us to purchase a few things without worrying how we would carry them home on the plane. 😉
We finished our day with yummy cupcakes from the Silos Baking Co. It was so hard to choose! Not only cupcakes but cookies and other sweet goodies with the attention to detail you would expect – all the way down to the cute way they wrap the cupcakes!
The Magnolia Market at the Silos is such a beautiful, relaxing place to visit. We spent some time just sitting, relaxing, and people watching. The people were so friendly and helpful – from the greeter as you walk onto the property, to the food truck vendors, to the employees in the store and bakery, all the way to the FedEx workers – they really made us feel welcome.
I don’t know when we’ll be back this way again, but whenever we are within a couple of hours of Waco, TX we will be making another trip to Magnolia Market at the Silos!!
Thanks for stopping by,
