It’s the second week of October and we’re loving all things spooky. For those seeking a special Halloween treat, you should check out Roger’s Gardens Alice In Wonderland.
The lush garden and boutique near Newport Beach are loved by the locals for their botanical beauty and dreamy home decorating inspo. Throughout the year, you’ll find everything from themed gardens to fun events like succulent pumpkin workshops.
But every Halloween, things take a turn and honestly, we’re here for it. Each year, the garden’s boutique is completely transformed into a super-fun theme. Previous themes included Hogwarts Castle, Grimm’s Fairy Tales, and Hocus Pocus.
This year, a dark version of Alice In Wonderland awaits you. *Cues eerie music* The entire store is filled with creepy versions of this childhood fantasy book.
You can come and experience Malice In Wonderland until October 31st. Roger’s Gardens store hours are from 9 am to 6 pm and entry is free. The gardens are even dog-friendly!
Near the store’s entrance, there are massive teacups you can take cute Instagrammable pics with. Don’t be shy; we’re all mad here! To get inside the store, you’ll have to walk through the pages of a giant book!
Enter the Red Queen’s domain (aka the boutique) where you’ll be surrounded by countless treasures, hidden surprises, and spooky scares.
You can even shop by theme and character. There’s an Alice In Wonderland section, as well as entire themes for The Mad Hatter, Down The Rabbit Hole, The Queen of Hearts, Tea Party, and Alice’s Garden.
If you’re more of a Christmas person, not to worry. Believe it or not, Rogers’ Gardens Christmas boutique is also open now through Christmas until 6 pm. Why not hit up both shops in one stop?
At this magical event, you can escape to a yuletide world filled with seasonal greens, beautiful hand-blown glass ornaments, and everything you need to get in on the holiday spirit. Be prepared to bring a little bit of magic home with you.
Why not take a trip down the rabbit hole? This wonderland is one spot you don't want to miss!
