I've been busy working on our indoor and patio container fairy gardens during the summer heat but the crisp hint of fall air has sent me scurrying back out into my garden to start decorating for fall.
Fall is the perfect time for gardening and we love sitting outside watching the rich foliage change colors as the fall season rapidly approaches. This year we wanted to reflect the changing weather in our fairy garden so we went busily to work handcrafting our favorite fall fairy garden miniatures. Need some fall garden miniatures of your own? Stop by our fall fairy garden page for some of our favorite fall miniatures!
The Magic of Fall Fairies
Attract fairies into your garden by decorating your miniature fairy garden for fall. Fairies were actually thought to flourish during the harvest season and peasants would leave sweet offerings in their garden in hopes that the magical wee fairies would help provide for a bountiful harvest and protect the food stores over the winter months.
In agrarian times, life often depended on the rewards of your garden so it's no wonder farmers looked to the magic of fairies to protect their herbs and gardens.
I don't know about you, but I'm not sure it's wise to leave sweet treats out in the garden in today's modern gardening environment. We have more than our share of woodland creatures that enjoy gallivanting through our miniature gardens. We are in the works of creating a miniature faux pumpkin pie that we hope to add to our gardens and websites shortly, I'll keep you appraised on our progress.
You can attract the fall fairies into your garden by decorating your miniature fairy garden with fall themed miniatures! Add miniature pumpkins and squashes, miniature hay bales, miniature fall garden decor and more fall themed miniatures to catch the eye of roaming fall fairies.
Indoor Fall Gardens:
Too cold in your region for outdoor fairy gardening? It's the perfect time to create a miniature fall container garden or plan an unique Thanksgiving centerpiece. All you need for an indoor or patio protected miniature fall garden is an ordinary garden saucer. Don't want to spend time caring for live plants? You can fill your miniature garden saucers with gravel or decorative rocks and glass and then unleash your imagination placing all of your magical miniatures, faux flowers, plants and miniature flower garden accessories.
Thanksgiving and Fall Centerpieces:
Need an idea for a unique fall or Thanksgiving centerpiece this year? We used our miniature garden church (pictured at the top of the page) as an indoor miniature table centerpiece by placing pumpkin cranberry scented tea lights inside the miniature building for the light and fragrance to softly waft through the fall church, creating an enchanting indoor garden display.
We'd love to hear how you decorate your miniature gardens for fall!
