Love your pictures! We had a Fairy Garden classification at our last Garden Club Flower Show and it was tremendous. we had 21 entries from kids for the Fairy Dish Garden and about 8 entries from the adults for a fairy garden flower arrangement. i made a boat of a milkweed pod for mine. It was a blast.

thanks!!!! I'm not that creative when making things, so am really interested more in mini and dwarf plants, and then I do try to find bargains on the hardscape.
this is true talent! http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1286053/

I have a friend in my Garden Club who is very crafty and made a bunch of her own furniture for her fairy garden display at our last show.
The category was a floral design that was a fairy garden. She made the furniture out in front of her arrangement.

Yep. This was a pre-judging photo. She won a second place. The first place winner blew all the rest of us out of the water. she had a real fairy in there and a gazebo. Mine was an arrangement of spring flowers from my garden and pine branches. I used epimedium, lily of the valley, viola, all teeny flowers, and the pine. the chunk of wood that holds the container is from my woodpile. Had to defend that from my son popping it in the woodstove a couple of times before spring got there. I made a fairy boat out of a milkweed pod and some sheer fabric scraps I got from my sister the wedding gown/prom dress maker. She always has the scraps of tulle she cuts off wedding gowns and prom gowns when she hems them. Sheer, sparkly? She's your gal.
