and gin-and-tonic lollipops!
To drink we all had a ruby red grapefruit/apple juice/vanilla concoction.
Yowzah! It was all so good - I took a tiny detour off my diet for this celebration, and I'm so glad I did.
~For the gardens, we all brought low planters and our hostess provided some plants to share. Others brought things to decorate: sea shells, crafty items, broken pottery shards, etc. Then we got down to it and had a blast.
Some were simple and spare. Faeries can frolic in a field of moss in this little garden...
Toadstools and picket fences make good garden features...
A rockery with a dainty pool... See the little tart form with blue beads glued around the edge?
A birdbath is transformed into a lovely park with a faerie swing...
A faerie can always use a welcome sign and some bling! See the little rhinestone hair clips in the soil?
My faerie garden has a birdbath made from a scallop shell glued to a wooden spool, and a tiny silver faerie sunning herself while perched on a moon shell. a little trail of river rocks and shells meanders throughout the garden. A tiny potted plant is off to the side:
Thanks to all my favorite ladies for a lovely birthday party and May Day celebration! You're the best.
