Garden Fairies Return

It is that time of year when the garden fairies
return!  They bring such fun to the garden and
add a touch of magic!  And it is all about the
magic here at Purple Chocolat Home.

This beautiful purple and green flower fairy
graces our tablescape today.  She is one
of my favorite fairies and was a gift from
a friends years ago.

A runner of green moss sets the mood
for the garden table, while the colors of
the fairy set the color scheme.

These rich purple stems match the
rich purple of the fairy.

Cabbage plates are always perfect for a 
garden themed table.

Beautiful flowered plates top the cabbage plates.

A matching, rich purple, glass plate is placed
atop the flowered plates and a small cabbage bowl
finishes the plate stack.

A purple and green color combination is
one of my favorites and that is echoed
in the napkins and beaded napkin rings.

I love the bee flatware on the mossy runner.

Everything in the garden is so green and
pretty and the trees offer a beautiful
back drop for this garden table.

This little French inspired flower pot
is one of my favorites and filled
with a silk flower, it adds a little
softness to the tablescape.

An artichoke garden sculpture adds some
height and presence to the centerpiece.

Yes, beautiful weather has arrived and the garden
is where we want to gather.  

 This fairy table will magically appear

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.


  1. There must have been fairy dust all around the table! It's magical.

  2. That fairy is running a tight ship! The table is immaculate.

  3. Oh this is so cute- that moss runner really sets it up perfectly! Love the fairy and the dishes you chose to use. I especially love the deep purple glass plates and of course the gorgeous stemware! With that cabbage bowl centered on the plates it looks like a flower! Love it!

  4. I do believe in fairies!!!! Beautiful!!

  5. Fun Jacqueline, your garden fairy presides over a magical table of purple and green! Lovely!

  6. An aha moment for me...fairies all through the gardens but never on the table for company. I just might do that on Monday when our grandson and girlfriend come for dinner.

  7. Magical table Jackie. The purple looks so regal. The fairy is quite the treasure. Love the green grass runner. Perfect for a garden theme.

  8. Hey, Girl!!! Fun table! Love it all. I was wondering if you actually use each table scape you set up that day or evening? How much fun you have? I wanted to do more tablescapes on my blog but I haven't figured out how to do a fun meal once a week! LOLOL you are so inspiring, however! I love your bed flatware! Where did you find that???!!! I'd love some of those!

  9. Hooray for the return of the Garden Fairies Jacqueline! Your mossy runny, cabbage plates, touches of purple are a delight to my fairy-loving heart ♥

  10. Jacqueline, I never would have thought to put the glass purple dish together with the cabbage and dinner plates, but it is a wonderful combination! The purple and green is beautiful for spring, and all things "fairy" are good with me! We love them here! Linda

  11. Yes, this is definitely a magical table. Makes me smile!

  12. I love this idea and you have carried it through to perfection. Lovely table!
