Come on in and join us for Our 2016 Fairy Garden Tour. The fairy princess has been watching for you.
It was a painful process waiting on the plants to grow in our fairy garden so I could take some pictures to share!
My hubby gifted me with most of the fairy garden items and so it begins! He surprised me with a Fairy Garden shopping trip which was such a fun day! When we got home, we began the process of putting our Fairy Garden together immediately. Grown ups enjoy imagining too!
Fast forward a couple years and visit my Fairy Garden Tablescape in the new home!
Caladiums seemed like the perfect summer flower for a Hidden Fairy Garden. Gnomes and Fairy Princess can hide those giant leaves easily and peep out to watch for visitors.
The half barrel planter was a $1 yard sale score several years ago! It is the perfect place for a summer fairy garden.
We found quite a few of our fairy garden accessories at Joann’s including the cottage. The front door opens and I loved the design with the vines growing all over it. We nestled it close to the back so we could make a stone pathway leading to the door.
We found our Bistro set at Big Lot’s along with the mailbox and wheel barrow. The Bistro set was given a coat of white paint which makes it stand out much better.
The Bistro set is located just under the edge of a beautiful pink verbena. A gnome sits atop a mushroom nearby.
Also nestled among the Verbena is our Fairy Garden angel. She sees all and knows all that goes on in the Hidden Fairy Garden.
Isn’t a cute frog a requirement when there is a Fairy Princess around? This one has a pink butterfly resting on his face. His hope is that a kiss from the Fairy Princess will turn him into her Prince! If you look close you’ll see her tree stump and the corner of her blue dress and yellow wing.
You’ll never believe what our birdhouse really is! It’s a cheese knife! I spotted it in a bin at a thrift store and knew it would be perfect for our fairy garden.
Our Fairy Princess has no idea there is a frog hiding behind her.
She spends her days hiding under the Caladium leaves, sitting on a tree stump just outside of her cottage. She is waiting on her Prince.
Our gnome keeps a watchful eye on the pathway entrance to the cottage. He’s a bird lover as you can see and he enjoys sitting on his mushroom toad stool.
As you can see from this photo above the hidden fairy garden and the creatures who live there are protected by their beautiful towering flowers and shrubs.
There are five different plants, all perennials, which make up our fairy garden; Croton, Caladium, Creeping Jenny, Verbena and Crown of Thorns.
Fairy Gardens are fun for all ages. Even Mom’s and Dad’s like us enjoy the creativity and imagination of creating a Hidden Fairy Garden to enjoy on our back deck.
I hope you have enjoyed your tour of our Fairy Garden. We have been adding to our collection and several more items have been given a makeover.
