Mr. 65th added to the chalkboard wall for the occasion. He found a fairy online, printed it out and blew it up on a copy machine. The he taped all the pages together and cut it out to use as a stencil. (he really is as wonderful as he seems)
Everyone gathered up their plants, containers and adorable accessories before coming over. We took some time to ooh and aah over each others finds before digging in.
I'm not sure who was more excited.....us or the little girls.
The potting table we put together last year came out of winter hibernation. I gave the legs a quick coat of grey paint since the varnish I used yellowed the white paint last summer.
Then I grabbed a few things I had around the house....crystal candlesticks for a little sparkle and a mirror that used to hang in the dining room.
I bought the mason jars for about a buck a piece and added colorful twisty straws. The drink dispenser is from Pottery Barn....I can't wait to fill it with margaritas this summer. Chalkboard labels are such a quick and easy project, you can read about them here.
The girls decorated wings and were all giggles flying around the yard together. It was a wonderful day.
The fairy garden pictures can be seen here.
