Welcome back, summer! Whether you're planning a visit to Waco or staying connected from afar, here's a quick look at everything we have in store this season.
THEME | Flourish
Every season at Magnolia starts with a theme, and everything we do—from products to events to how you experience the grounds—is approached through that lens. Our summer theme is “flourish” and we believe that word invites us towards bold gestures that bring joy. So get ready for a summer filled with color, fun, and plenty of time spent under the sun and stars. You can read more about why this word means so much to Jo and our team in the current issue of Magnolia Journal.
VISIT | Magnolia in Waco
Make Waco part of your plans this summer! There's so much coming to life across all of our entities.
You'll notice a newcomer to the Shops at the Silos: Ferny's Retro Plant Shop! This fun new shop is filled with vintage-inspired pots and plants, and is an experience all its own. What started as a trailer pop-up experience by Jo's younger sister Mikey is now a permanent shop here on our grounds.
Explore the grounds further and you'll wind up in the garden, colorfully layered with seasonal blooms, including vibrant zinnias and fragrant lavender.
We’ve also invited our poet friend Scott Andrew James to hang out with us and offer free, personalized poems to guests! Every Saturday in June and the first Saturday in July, you can stop by the Old Church and Scott will craft an inspirational poem just for you.
Other highlights this summer are the Waco Downtown Farmers Market, live music on the Press patio, and the sixth birthday of Silos Baking Co.! And make sure to check out how the Market has been reset for summer!
TASTE | Food at Magnolia
Summer flavors have made their way onto all of Magnolia’s menus! From ice cream sundaes to our new Orange Cream Cupcake, we’re welcoming the season with nostalgic flavors that take us back to carefree days, plus, savory staples like our new Summer Burger. For a refreshing treat, don’t miss out on our five exclusive flavors of Blue Bell ice cream—find out where you can scoop one up here.
WATCH | Magnolia Network + Workshops
We’ve got lots of new episodes coming to the Network across design, food, and the arts this summer, including the sixth season of Magnolia Table with Joanna Gaines and the soon-to-air Silos Baking Competition. Other highlights to check out this season are The Established Home and Making Modern with Brooke and Brice.
READ | Magnolia Journal
Now on newsstands, our latest issue of Magnolia Journal features limeade recipes, landscaping 101, Jo on skates, and more ways to grow wildly this summer. One of our favorite stories is called “Let Summer Flourish,” which gives 90 ideas on how to make the most of your time in the sun.
SHOP | Our Summer Collection
Inspired by the warm hues, mixed wood, and array of metals that exist in Jo’s garden, our team chose a color palette and mix of materials that defines our summer products. You’ll see this reflected throughout the collection in rich terracotta, textured clay, natural woven materials, and a mix of brass, copper, and zinc. Take a closer look at the summer collection here.
Whether you’re planning a trip to Waco or staying inspired at home, we’re so excited to experience this season with you. Let summer flourish!
