This beautiful tiny little seating area with the white iron furniture, it looks so nice especially with the fall colors and the maple leaves kind of floating around. There's lots of flowers and a park clock there and it just looks really nice and completes the space.

Use clusters of items and those really tiny like awkward spaces on your island. Use as little street lamp and a mush log with a garden gnome on top of it with a little sign and it just kind of brings more detail and interest into the area.

Putting some trees and flowers and naturey related items and furniture, because it just looks really nice and it fills in that space. Cover the cliff top with a bunch of trees, flowers and shrubs, and there are some weeds in there and also the little mushroom item.

This is just a really simple rounded pond with a waterfall. If you have a really small space this might be a really good idea for you. This looks like a little tiny watering hole and your villagers will probably come sit next to it and enjoy their little drink or their food and it's really cute.

It's like a little beekeeping area with a bunch of honey around. She used the little wasp nest on the stall and it looks like her villagers can come over and be beekeepers which is really cute and very creative. All the colorful flowers are really beautiful and it's just on the little ledge of the cliff, so you don't need a lot of space to create these and they always look really cool and just bring kind of a realistic vibe to your island.
