Fairy Garden Party and Craft Night


Welcome to a fairy wonderland!
We thought we were coming to a craft night with a
light dinner, but we were treated to a fabulous fairy party
filled with flowers and fanciful treats.


As we entered Joanne's back yard, we saw that this
was an exquisite table set just for us, and our inner fairies.


Each place setting was different and each had
a flower fairy card with our initial on them.
This was my place setting.



We were gathered in her exquisite covered
seating area.


I adore her chandelier, lights and banners, done
all for us.





Everything was so beautiful, and we were all taking
photos and drinking in the atmosphere.


Each place setting was also adorned with a little
fairy for us to take home.



I fell in love with Joanne's DuBarry sterling silver.




Rachel made fabulous spa water for us.


These are the most beautiful and delicious
fairy cookies ever and they were provided
by Amy Perkins.




Amy also made these glittering cookies.
You know me, I had to try the cookies first,
and they were the most delicious, moist, melt-in-your-mouth
cookies ever - perfect for fairies.





There were even fairy mannequins adorning
our setting.



We were served fabulous food that Laura made:
 Strawberry Chicken Salad,
Brie, Turkey and Raspberry Jam Paninis
(of which Winston, the dog, stole one),
and a frozen fruit salad that Joanne made.



Now to the crafts that we came for!
We each made a fairy house, a fairy chair,
and decorated a mailbox to send letters
to the Fairy Queen.  I put mine in a garden
chair.


We each made a fairy chair by gluing moss,
bendable naturals and covered wire, and jewels
to a small metal bench, found in any miniature
section of the craft store.


The fairy house was made by turning two natural
floral containers upside down, the bottom one made of bark,
with a door opening cut out and a wooden, embellished
door, added.  Then a twig container was turned upside
down to create the roof.  We just pushed that on and them
embellished it with more twigs, and jewels.  


You can see I added a small gazing ball next to the
fairy house door.
We decorated a fairy mailbox with moss and jewels,
 to send notes to the fairy queen.  
Brenda hand painted decorations on our doors,
which do open.  J


Joanne made little fairy notecards for our little ones
to write on and post.


It was truly an event made for all fairy princesses.



Here is a collage of her playhouse in 
another corner of her garden. I adore
the fabric shades on her lights.


Thank you Joanne and Laura for treating us like royalty!

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
