Fairy Garden Creativity

One of our favorite classes every year is the "Create your Own Fairy Garden Class".
 We supply the log planters, the herb plants, soil and little baubles and gems and hidden treasures. Our crafters supply the creativity.
We include a short explanation on what plants you might want to choose and why you might consider each one -- parsley is a great privacy screen, creeping thyme is a favorite place for fairies to nap, ladies mantle collects the dew drops and the fairies can bathe in it.
We read a couple of fairy poems to help set the scene, and then everyone is allowed to create and decorate.
Each little container has its own story to tell, from mermaids to tea parties, to other whimsical delights, it's a magical night  with smiles all around!
All ages come to work on these planters and the end result produces unique and individual fairy gardens sure to delight the fae!
 Surely the fairies will enjoy these gardens!!

Does that mean I am a fairy? I love them! If I were close I would take this class. How fun!
