When the winds of March are wakening the crocuses and crickets,
Did you ever find a fairy near some budding little thickets,…
And when she sees you creeping up to get a closer peek
She tumbles through the daffodils, a playing hide and seek.
— Marjorie Barrows
Fairy gardens are magical spaces inhabited by plants, miniature structures, and imagination.
Did you know fairy gardens first debuted in the US in 1893? They began as bonsai dish gardens and their popularity was likely due to the Japanese Pavilion at the Chicago World’s Fair. Soon thereafter, the New York Times featured these miniature creations in an article and the rest, as they say, is history.
Fairy gardens are often planted in containers. Planting a Fairy Garden is a wonderful activity to do with a child or grandchild. It brings out the imagination and creativity in everyone.
Some enthusiasts create fairy gardens to enliven indoor spaces and patios. Larger fairy gardens can be built into natural landscapes like trees. They can be added to pre-existing flower beds, altars, or rock gardens.
I have gathered together an assortment of furniture and accent pieces to be used to decorate and enhance any container fairy garden. The pieces are all painted metal and with care, will last years.
