When my good friend said she was throwing a Fairy party for her daughter who’s turning 6, I knew exactly what I wanted to give her: a Fairy Garden.
I got the idea from Pinterest where there are pictures of very elaborate fairy gardens with tiny houses and clothes hanging from a clothesline, basically a garden within a garden!
I knew I wanted to give one to my daughter this Spring. I specially liked this one from Playful Learning
And decided that would be a good start and we could add to it slowly.
Here’s the one we got for our lil friend, soon to be 6 year old:
We got her a cute little annual Alyssum, a pot of perennial Moss, some river rocks, and some trinkets: a aluminum box with double windows that can be used as a house, a few small little bells, a little button jar, a few small clothes pins with flowers and birds on them, a small butterfly shaped “pool” and tiny little terracota flower pots.
She can add to it as time goes by, get a proper house if she so choses, and so on. I asked her mom beforehand if that was okay with her and if she had a small area in her yard for the garden to be planted.
Or she could do as some of the ones I had seen, like this one where you can keep it in a big flower pot.
All you need is to get creative and let the girls have fun with it!
I’m excited to put one together for my five year old next!
