Woodland Fairies at Gardner Village

The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper. - W. B. Yeats
Do you believe in fairies? We most certainly do after spending an enchanting Saturday afternoon at Gardner Village. All throughout the village are tiny fairy houses and their enchanted residents just waiting for you to discover them.

My sister and I took our girls to the village to see if we could spot any mini magical friends. We are true believers in these woodland wonders, especially since the girls caught glimpses of the fairies winking at them! I just adore the magic of childhood.

Everywhere you look, there are enchanting fairies beside their tiny houses. If you listen closely, you can hear their little voices singing their sweet fairy songs....at least that's what our little ones explained to us. 

We spotted fairies having tea, fairies catching their beauty rest, fairies standing atop their fairy fortress and fairies playing musical instruments. The girls loved being a part of this tiny, magical world.



One of the girls' favorite activities was the A-Z Mystical Fairy Quest. There are 26 fairies in tiny jars throughout the village with each fairy representing a letter from the alphabet. We loved this adventure of trying to find all the fairies. The girls especially enjoyed all the silly faces the fairies were making inside their little jars.




Once we finished the fairy quest, it was on to the shops to enjoy all the activities the village has to offer.
Our first stop was SPOILED ROTTEN CHILDREN'S CLOTHING BOUTIQUE for a pair of fairy wings so the girls could take flight. They each picked out their favorite color of wings and off they flew!




Our next stop was M SOAPS BY MARGUERITE for magical fairy bath bombs. These bombs are super fizzy and smell so heavenly. There's even a hidden surprise inside!

A quick stop to see if we could find any fairies that were hiding. We know fairies can be very shy so the girls waited patiently to see if any would come out from behind the flowers.

Face painting is a must while visiting the fairies. The girls requested sparkly daisies to adorn their little faces and a wonderfully talented fairy was more than happy to oblige.


After a delicious bite to eat at THE NABORHOOD BAKERY, the girls wanted to relax by the pond to see if they could spot any water fairies as well as feed the ducks.

They are pretty sure they saw some water fairies flitter and flutter by.

Our next top was the magical Wishing Bridge. The girls picked up their ribbon inside Aunt Elsie's Trinkets and Treasures and made their way to the bridge.

Once inside, the girls gave their ribbon a little kiss, made a wish and tied their bows alongside all the other wishing ribbons.


AUNT ELSIE'S TRINKETS AND TREASURES has fairy garden classes every Saturday so be sure to reserve your spot to make one of these darling fairy homes!



The girls looked high and low and found so many enchanting little friends. They especially loved the fairy playing the harp. So sweet!





Every Saturday at 1:00 pm from now until June 24th is a magical fairy parade complete with a beautiful unicorn! The girls were in awe as they pet and snuggled this enchanting creature. 

What could be more magical than a fairy riding a unicorn?! I think all the girls' dreams came true that day. They were giddy with excitement as they rode away on the sweet unicorn.


As we were getting ready for the parade to begin, beautiful woodland fairies appeared and gave out sparkly fairy kisses to the little ones. 


The fairies paraded throughout the village with their wands in tow and fluttering their wings. They danced, sang and played games as they skipped along the parade route.



After the parade was over, we headed to the THE BEAD FARM for the girls to make their very own fairy bracelet. They turned out adorable and the girls loved the "special fairy powers" the charms gave them.



GEORGELL DOLL SHOP was our last stop and the girls were thrilled to be able to peek inside the many beautiful homes and palaces of the fairies. They were also able to color their own fairy wings while inside the shop as well as pick up an adorable sheet of fairy paper dolls!





It  was a magically beautiful day and we are already counting down the days until we go again! 
Discover more enchanting fairy activities at Gardner Village HERE. Experience the magic of the Woodland Fairies now through June 24th. Be sure not to miss the Fairy Parade every Saturday at 1:00pm. Your kids will love riding a magical unicorn and skipping in the parade!

Thank you so much to Gardner Village, Georgell Doll Shop, Spoiled Rotten Children's Boutique and M Soaps by Marguerite for being so incredibly generous! The girls made memories that will last a lifetime.

Thank you!
