When I am planning a miniature garden, I sometimes fall completely in love with different color palettes and themes. I have always been a huge fan of pastel colors and have had this idea for a miniature garden in my head for a while. It seems like the perfect time of the year to move toward a spring theme with the Easter Bunny, baskets full of treats, and blooming flowers. It is fun when I am thinking about my next fairy garden to focus on a sunny garden for the upcoming holiday, and it happens to fall right into the color palette I have been wanting to use. I love decorating for all holidays, so my home is full of wreaths, bunny figurines, egg decorations, and other miniature accessories.

Slide3:

I am so excited for spring that I cannot help but look forward to some bright flowering plants to dress up the fairy garden with these miniature plants. Since I will be adding a colorful fairy house, I will want to flank either side of the home with bright pink flowers. One of my favorite blooming plants, Armeria juniperifolia ‘Thrift’, has a flower with thin green, needlelike leaves that look as though they are reaching toward the sun. The fairy home that would be a great fit for my Easter-themed garden would be Brookside Cottage, with its bright yellow walls and colorful green shutters. The handle on the door is an adorable butterfly-shaped handle.

Slide4:

I want to start selecting fairy accessories that are unique to the Easter holiday. I am a personal fan of the big signs that say “BUNNY XING” with a pair of cute, white, bunny ears popping up from behind. I also like a sign called “Easter Egg Hunt Sign,” which is very colorful and has two arrows pointing toward an Easter egg hunt, as well as a bunny trail. I also like to add a white basket full of eggs as part of the Easter egg hunt, bringing representation to the time of year. Remember that you will want to hide Easter eggs throughout your miniature garden, so your garden fairies have eggs to hunt down. I had another friend, who is an expert in the field of miniature gardens, recommend using glass pebbles as stand-ins for your Easter eggs. In the miniature world, the beautiful, egg shaped pebbles are heavy, so they stay where you put them.

Slide5:

I always like to finish my gardens with little spring fairies who most likely love the flowering seasons as much as I do. Some are pastel and match the spring colors perfectly. To add some merriment, I find it amusing to have one fairy distracted from enjoying the egg hunt. Lilac Fairy, wearing a lavender dress, obviously loves flowers as she leans in to smell the blooms that decorate the garden of your fairy house. Since it is an Easter egg hunt, I have added other fairies, so they are enjoying the activity together. I also love ‘May Fairy’, who is a little brunette fairy with a green dress. She looks as though she is dancing in the garden and spinning in her flowy dress. Which fairy should I pick next?

Slide6:

This time of year is a very special occasion to add a miniature fairy garden to your home as a decoration for the holiday season. I always do a garden for Halloween and Christmas, and I am very happy to be adding an Easter garden to part of my seasonal decorations. It will be a unique way to combine my love of miniature gardening with my love of the holidays.
