Welcome to our Family Business!
Carolina Home & Garden was established in 1996. Over the years, we have grown into much more than your local Garden Shop! We have thrived on being a unique and beautiful boutique garden center for almost 25 years! Owners, Brian & Stephanie Watson started this business in their mid-twenties. It was not until their daughter Logan began her journey here, that Carolina Home & Garden became more than your plant-buying place! We are your local gathering place, venue for any type of event, coffee & cocktails bar, and much more!
The Garden Center is located in the back part of our property. We offer a large variety of plants, mulch, pottery, fertilizers, and much more. In the front part of our store, we have a vintage cafe and bar room, and a separate wine lounge and arcade room. Brian loves collecting vintage arcade games! This has become the hangout spot where parents can enjoy a beverage, while their children enjoy playing games. Right outside is our koi fish flagstone patio. We love watching the kids feed the koi fish and hang out outside. We also have two alpacas, goats, doves, horses, and a Chinese pheasant! We strive to be your local gathering place, for everyone in the family!
Brian and Stephanie created Dream Makers Wedding Estates in the early 2000s; two beautiful Wedding Venues on the Crystal Coast: The Watson House and Gardens in Emerald Isle, NC, and the Palo Alto Plantation in Maysville, NC. It was not until 2018 that they began to transform Carolina Home & Garden into their third Venue. Because it’s filled with tropical plants, water features, and vintage decor we call it “The Sunroom”. It’s a very special place to host an event!
