Cape Craftsmen: Featured Collections

Regardless of whether you are in the market for that one of a kind decorative accent piece, a unique boutique garden item or an artisan handmade design, our Cape Craftsmen brand is committed to bringing you the latest trends and most unique designs. We wanted to give you a sneak peek into some of the most popular trends and collections from this season.

Urban Architecture

Urban Architecture captures the immensely popular "Modern Loft" style that is definitely here to stay. Many trace this trend to the HGTV show, "Fixer Upper", where Chip and Joanna Gaines have built an entire design approach around upcycling, recycling, and repurposing. It looks both rustic and modern at the same time, with elements of both farm life and city life. The weathered materials like wood and metal gives this collection a feel of home comfort that anyone and everyone can love.

One major aspect of this trend is galvanized metal and our Large Galvanized Tub on Wheels showcases this trend beautifully. It’s perfect for indoors or outdoors. It’s multi-functional and can be used as a planter or even for entertaining. Another galvanized piece is our Oval Metal Wall Clock. This clock will give a cozy, vintage feel to any room in your home.

Our Urban Style Entry Way is crafted out of iron and re purposed wood, which are both very popular within the "modern loft" trend. This piece features four hooks and under seat storage as well. This item would work wonderfully in a mud room or in a front hallway as well.

Artisan Minded

Artisan Minded taps into the trend of decorating with crafts and artwork from all over the globe. From textiles to hand-crafted wood pieces, as well as natural elements like driftwood and glass, this collection offers an exciting international vibe full of unique treasures. These materials and techniques will bring a global feel into any home.

Two of our newest globally-inspired items are our rhino and elephant patchwork statues. These statues are made out of 100% vintage, recycled fabric from India. Each one is full of character! Because they're hand-made with hand-spun fabric, no two are ever alike.

Staying with the elephant trend, we have our brand new Boho Elephant Indoor Canvas and Boho Elephant Pillow. The indoor 30" x 30" canvas features gorgeous metallic gold paint. Our pillow features the same boho print elephant design and has a red and yellow tassel at each corner as well. These 2 pieces can definitely be used as the finishing touches to any living room.

Another item that we’re excited about is our new Glass Planter on Driftwood. Broken glass from various areas is collected and melted down, then is blown by mouth into the shapes needed to fit the driftwood roots and make the beautiful planters. Each piece is unique and sizes may vary.
  
European Cottage

European Cottage is a softer collection with a classic, neutral look. It's full of graceful forms, hand-carved wood, and light-colored, hand-applied finishes, and carries the appeal of those famous cities in Europe that we all dream about. It's perfect for anyone who loves the shabby chic look, as well as anyone who enjoys a classic style in their home decor.

Our new watercolor canvases work to bring a light, soft feel to this collection and feature some of our favorite places in the world, such as Venice and Paris. These 24"x24" canvases feature beautiful light blues and soft pinks.

Our Flower and Twigs Wall Mirror adds a classic touch with just the right amount of whimsy. This 28" x 18" mirror is encircled by golden iron twigs and beautiful white flowers. It can hang in any room and brings a little bit of those European gardens right into your very own home.

Zen Influences

Zen Influences brings a bit of Eastern look to the Western world, and creates a harmony between the two. A combination of white and gold as well as vibrant accent colors like teal and orange, make this a rich-looking collection. It has clean lines that fit into almost any lifestyle, in any geographical location. It's a versatile look that can fit into traditional, contemporary, or more casual approaches, and it can even work with Zen-like coastal settings.

Our new 30" x 30" Tang Horse indoor wall canvas is actually printed on a gold foil canvas. It's a striking look and it pairs beautifully with our stunning metal hall table. The Zen Influence Gold Hall Table features a beautiful white marble top and a gold geometry base.

The feather detailed pieces found through out the collection, like the Large Glass Feather Table Decor and the Metal Feather Trinket Dish, make perfect accent pieces and add pops of gold. A few more new accent pieces we have are our adorable little No Evil Buddha statues. They come in three different sizes and are indoor and outdoor safe as well.

No matter what your style is, Cape Craftsmen has a piece for everyone! To check out all of our Cape Craftsmen products, please visit us at myevergreenonline.com.

Just Add Color to Your Garden with New Creative

Within our New Creative brand, we feature products which celebrate "outdoor spirit, outdoor charm, and outdoor life". We recently released a brand new catalog that features a few new categories, such as Hum Flower Pots, artful kinetic garden stakes, and Just Add Color coloring items, and have expanded already popular ones as well. We’ve highlighted a few products and product categories that we don’t want you to miss!

Hum Pots

We’ve recently put the New Creative spin on planters and containers with our introduction of the cheerfully bright & bold Hum Flowerpot. Created by British couple, Lara and Tim Kelly, when they noticed a lack of fun and fresh planters in the Market place, Hum Flowerpots will add both style and function to your home and garden. Evergreen has partnered with Hum to design a new collection exclusively by Evergreen for North America. Our goal is to create a well-crafted planter that helps you beautify your space.

Made of recyclable Polypropylene, these durable planters are fade resistant, frost resistant, and offer bright and bold designs which won’t chip or peel due to the application of the artwork during the molding process. Each 8.5” container offers a 5 liter capacity and features indentations to drill your own drainage holes, making this the perfect indoor/outdoor pot.

Artful Kinetic

Garden Stakes and Kinetic Garden Stakes have taken lead as the largest overall category in our Evergreen Garden brand. New Creative has used these design themes to create our Artful Kinetic, Design in Motion collection. Unique to Evergreen’s kinetic offering, each Artful Kinetic includes wall mount hardware as well as a H-base stake, allowing the consumer to showcase their Kinetic as movement wall art or as a traditional staked Kinetic. Standing 48” H with a width of 16”, each design features 3 separate layers, with 2 layers featuring bright and bold artwork applied by a sublimation technique, and a 3rd metal mesh layer in a solid accent color. Both the top layer (which features the icon) and the back layer (which features the solid color metal mesh) are stationary, while the middle layer spins in the wind. This combination of layers offers a 3-Dimensional effect. We’re also featuring coordinating designs in both our Hum Flowerpot Program and our Artful Kinetic Program!

Just Add Color

We’ve seen the power of the continually growing trend of DIY and hands on projects. To support this growing interest as well as the love of Adult Coloring, we’ve introduced a collection of Just Add Color themed products in Garden Stones, Plant Picks, and Planters. Our Garden Stones are made of durable polystone and feature designs which are beautiful as is but can also be enhanced with a little coloring using a permanent marker.

Our Just Add Color ceramic planter, nested set of 2, makes a perfect gift! Each planter features a floral planter and pop of color with a glazed inner finish accented in green or pink. Both the ceramic Garden Stakes and the ceramic planters can be colored with our ‘Just Add Color’ markers. Once colored with the markers, allow the color to set for 72 hours and then the product is safe to place outdoors (no baking required). Both the Garden Stakes and Planters feature raised decals which serve as guides to help you color in the lines.

Outdoor Wall Decor 

We’ve expanded our offering of Outdoor Wall Décor with over 20 new designs including our metal seahorse and starfish wall decor pieces. Capturing the popular trend of marquee style lighting and following the coastal trend as well, our fully shaped and dimensional metal seahorse wall décor features 7 LED lights, a waterproof battery box with on/off switch and built in timer, stands nearly 18” tall. Our layered metal Starfish wall décor is nearly 2 feet in size, features over 30 seed lights which outline the starfish shape as well as a waterproof battery box with on/off switch and built in timer.

One of the beautiful statement pieces in our Wall Décor offering is our fully shaped Glass and Metal Flower. This piece features layered metal petals in rich blues and greens as well as a layer of glass petals which are illuminated by powerful LED lights. This statement piece is nearly 20” in size and includes easy mount hardware.

Night Garden



We’ve also expanded our offering of Night Garden products across categories including Lanterns, Wall Décor, Statuary, and Garden Stakes. We’ve introduced 3 watering can shaped 2 sided hand painted glass and metal lanterns. These designs offer a little more whimsy than the 2016 originals but feature the same appealing hand painted technique which is beautifully illuminated by the solar powered LED light.

As interesting statement items in the Solar Lantern Category, we’ve introduced two designs which feature a rotating light function. These lanterns use their solar power to rotate an inner light chamber which casts a moving effect across the ground surface. Our metal leaves adorned design features a clear glass panel while our punched metal design offers a full metal body. These fun pieces are great conversation starters!

We’re always looking for ways to grow our product selection and we are sure that our newest release has something for everyone! To see all of our new products and the entire New Creative collection, please visit us online at myevergreenonline.com

Modern Loft: From Rustic to Industrial

Over the last several years, a distinct mixture of rustic farmhouse & industrial vibes has been taking the retail and design world by storm.  Older pieces are uniquely repurposed to convey a clean, modern feel, often blending contemporary color palettes with more neutral earth tones. Some of you may know this trend as "Modern Loft".


This new trend has been featured by prominent magazines, designers, and blogs. There are now even popular home improvement shows devoted entirely to this timeless style, like Joanna Gaines and Fixer Upper on HGTV. It is somewhere in between industrial and rustic and involves worn-looking items that have been repurposed in attractive ways, with a lot of wood and metal. It even ties in with the DIY/home renovation craze. The way it blends urban with country makes it relevant to almost any home, whether it's downtown or down on the farm.
Because of its wide appeal, this trend is now everywhere in the market. We proudly offer a large selection of pieces that tie perfectly in to this trend.  We have discovered that the style has a broad appeal, seamlessly fitting into rural cottages as well as suburban townhomes and urban lofts.  This look can be applied beautifully to all areas of the home.  Though commonly found indoors (anywhere from the kitchen to the bedroom), it can also easily add interest to outdoor spaces like porches or gardens.

We have curated over 150 of our best items from this look into a collection we like to call "Farmhouse Chic". One prominent piece of this trend is distressed wood. By using wooden ladders or crates, like our Distressed Wooden Crate Cart or 3-Tier Wooden Crate and Metal Cart, you can give your home a more rustic, woodsy feeling. Our White & Natural Distressed Wooden Table also embodies this part of the trend beautifully. You can use this table in the kitchen, dining room, or even in the hallway. Mixed media is very common with this trend. Look for distressed wood pieces that feature metal accents as well.

Another way to incorporate this theme into your home is by using vintage and antique inspired decorative pieces and flea market type items. By using a few items like our Metal Pocket Watch Wall Clock and our Smile & Laugh Light Up LED Indoor Canvases, your home will start to have a distinct vintage feel.

Galvanized metal is also a very popular aspect of this trend and can be used outdoors and even indoors as well. Galvanized metal tubs or buckets, like our Set of 3 Oval Cache Pots, make perfect planters for your favorite plants or flowers. Our Watertight Cart is another perfect way to bring the trend into your home. This cart can be used indoors or outdoors, and is great for entertaining as well!

You can even include just a few jewel-tones and brighter color statement pieces if you’re not yet completely comfortable with an all-neutral assortment. Lightly colored glass jars and basic mason jars are another foolproof way to bring “farmhouse chic” right into your very own home. From the kitchen to the backyard, it is easy to incorporate this trend’s irresistible charm almost anywhere.

Brighten Your World with Firefly!

With our Evergreen Garden brand, we focus on functional outdoor solutions that are inspired by what we see in nature. We have seen the popularity of our lighting categories and the way that people are spending more time outdoors for a healthier lifestyle. So we are really excited to offer a  product that taps into both of those. You can now brighten your world with our Firefly lanterns!

Firefly lanterns can be used anywhere, from outdoor parties and cookouts, to camping trips, to bike rides, or even as an emergency light source. You can also use them as solar path lights. These portable, versatile and durable solar lanterns are the easy alternative for so many moments in which we need a source of light. They’re perfect for year round entertaining as well!

The lanterns are charged naturally by solar power using the panel on top. It can also be charged on the go using the included USB cord that attaches to the top of the lantern, and plugs directly into any USB power source, from your computer to your car to a wall adapter in your house.


Using LED lights that are built into the lid, the lantern offers 3 different lighting settings to give it flexibility to add just the right amount of light to any outdoor setting or event. The highest setting gives 100 lumens for up to 5 hours per charge, while the regular setting gives 50 lumens for up to 12 hours. There's also a flashing setting to add some special charm by mimicking the look of fireflies in the garden. Our Firefly lanterns even capture the natural green color of fireflies, along with a white option for a more neutral look. We think they look best when using multiple lanterns together!


These lanterns are also incredibly durable. The outer bulb is made of soft, flexible silicone, which can't be broken, and the top is made of impact-resistant plastic. You can even collapse the lantern down so it can be easily stored in smaller spaces, like backpacks or car glove boxes. They're even waterproof!

Whatever you're doing, Firefly lanterns are an easy way to lighten up your world. To see a demonstration of all the features and uses, check out our Youtube video. To see all of our products, visit us now at myevergreen.com.

Make It Yours: Warm Welcome Door Decor

Make your door visible and welcoming! Just as the eyes are the windows to the soul, your front door is the face of your home and gives the first impression to your guests. The demand for door décor has evolved to signature looks and unique options that can be used to dress up the door all year round. Door Decor makes decorating easy and can be changed with the seasons, making a huge impact on your home! Go beyond the wreath and decorate that door with something fresh and unique.

Attention to Details
Our door décor category has many similarities to our applique flags, including detailed stitching, unique embellishments, and eye-catching designs. We use an amazing variety of quality materials, including our burlap, applique and Everfelt materials to make each piece a unique, hand-crafted item. Our collection of door décor offers a wide variety of styles to choose from, all with beautiful details making them the perfect statement pieces. For the fall/holiday seasons, you can even choose from advent calendar styles and door décor that lights up.

Personalization Made Easy
We make personalization easy with our monogram initials. Simply choose your letter for your door décor and apply. Fabric closures make it very easy to apply and interchange frequently. It makes changing designs for each season fun! Many of our burlap door décor pieces are also perfect for heat transfer personalization as well. We also have a few chalkboard styles that let you write directly on it for the ultimate personal statement. Our chalk markers let you write with ease. They won’t wipe off, but can easily be washed off with warm soapy water, so the door décor piece can be used again and again.

Display Solution for Easy Merchandising
Just as we do for other categories, we work to offer unique and relevant display solutions for our products. Our door décor display is 66” tall and comes with 4 metal hooks, giving you flexibility in your display options that immediately grab customers' attention and inspire. You can use one side as a statement display and the other for stocking product, or use both sides to stock to stock product for maximum amount of product. You can make a huge statement in less than 3.25 square feet, which is great for smaller retailers.

Many of our door décor pieces coordinate with some of our most popular and best-selling flags, windsocks, and floor mats. This should hopefully provide more upselling opportunities for retailers. Door décor has become one of our fastest growing categories and we’re looking forward to giving retailers even more variety and more options to choose from in the near future. To shop our current selection of door décor items, you can visit us online 24/7 at www.myevergreen.com.

Salut! A Cheers to Craft Beers


The craft beer movement has grown dramatically in the United States over the past few years. Craft breweries are ones that are “small, independent and traditional.” They are traditionally not mass-marketed and use more traditional ingredients like malt barley.

Beer drinkers have really expanded their tastes and more beer lovers are turning to more full-flavored beers like IPA’s, Pale Ales, and seasonal beers.  IPA’s and Pilsners have grown over 40% during the past 3 years as people are starting to really acquire a taste for the strong hops flavor.

As people are experimenting, so are breweries. They are constantly coming up with new beer flavors and new hops to give the customers something different that will keep them coming back for more. Retailers have caught on to the trend and have started carrying more in stores. Retail sales of craft beer reached $19.6 billion, which is 11% of all beer sales

While craft breweries have popped up all over the US, so have tasting rooms, making the experience very social. These onsite tasting rooms are very popular because after people try something and like it, they are more likely to go out and purchase it.



“The rapid growth of craft beer closely aligns to a cultural shift toward discovery that is prevalent in the U.S. and abroad,” said Paul Avery, CEO and President of World of Beer. “Craft beer enjoyment goes beyond drinking great beers; it is also about experiencing the stories, people, and cultures that make them unique."

As people have started to appreciate the different flavors and brewing styles of craft beers, they have seen the impact a styled glass can make on the flavor of the beer. For one of the more popular craft beers, we have created the Artisan Craft Beer Pilsner glass that is tall, slender and tapers out from the bottom. This shape is key to displaying the beer’s clarity while the tapered shape supports the head of the beer, keeping the flavor and aroma profiles in perfect balance, just like brewer intended. 

This style of glass is incredibly popular in both the US and Europe because they enhance your ability to appreciate the true taste of your beer. Although most Pilsners are cut to be slightly smaller then a Pint Glass, ours hold 22 oz. ensuring you can enjoy your entire beer in one glass. With all of the wonderful options of craft brews out there for you to try, we encourage you to purchase a glass that will help enhance the flavors so that you can truly appreciate everything the beer has to offer.
