Roger's Gardens has created a show-stopping display of theatrical proportions with their Halloween 2011 theme, "Blackstone Back Alley Theatre." To set the stage for what's in store, the "story" focuses on a mysterious, abandoned back-alley theater. Inside, Roger's designers have created or gathered vintage and new props, characters and decor that hint that the Blackstone was -- and still is -- a strange and macabre world in which to visit.
For 2010, Roger's Gardens blends plants, pumpkins, Halloween decorations and one-of-a-kind treasures for a unique theme built around the imaginary Funn & Gaems Toy Factory. Follow what happens as Mischievous Mort, a marionette puppet, turns the factory and toys upside down (literally) and has a blast with his tricks and treats.
Need decorating ideas for your Halloween party, porch or yard? Not everyone gets a thrill from the gruesome and grisly side of Halloween. For those who prefer a more elegant, eerie and even historical style of Halloween decor, take a look at what the designers at Roger's Gardens in Orange County, California, have created for their popular Halloween display.
Picking up where they left off in 2008, Roger's Gardens in 2009 conjured up another chapter in the tale of 13 Blackbird Lane, ca 1909. Enjoy a visit to the web-filled basement once inhabited by "Mournful" Morris.

One of the masters in plant-and-decor Halloween displays is the famous Roger's Gardens in Newport Beach, California.
