Fairy Garden Party

Do you believe in fairies?  We believe....so this weekend we invited a few friends over to create a special garden of their own...one the fairies will be sure to love.


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 butterfly cookies are from a local bakery.


Estate sale chairs and a table saved from the landfill are perfect for an outdoor party. Now I just need to find a few more chairs.



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.

  16. When I was little I didn't believe in fairy's but I did believe in the tooth fairy. That was until even time to tooth fairy came to give me a dollar I would wake up. I realized then that it was my mom. I realized also that the tooth fairy was very cheap only giving me one dollar. The only person that would this cheap would be my mom. This is how I figured out that tooth fairy wasn't real.
