We are excited to announce we have added fairy gardens and fairy garden accessories to our boutique. As a very detail oriented company fairy gardens are right up our alley. I’m sure most of you have seen a fairy garden or two, here are some fun facts about fairy gardens that you may or may not know.
It all starts with the container. Show your personality off with the type of container you select then build upon it. Containers of all shapes and sizes are prime real estate for Fairy Gardens. Here are a few containers that we love.
New to fairy gardens or gardening? You don’t have to be intimidated with the elaborate layouts and accessories, START SMALL. We suggest maybe a basket, or planter box. They are portable and won’t require a lot of plants or accessories. The “Fairy Garden Architects” create small houses and accessories from natural materials. Some of the accessories that we have include: benches, wheel barrows, table set, bridges, stone walkways, fences, arches, houses, and the fairies themselves. Not every gardener places little stone fairies in their garden, but instead likes to suggest that the fairies are out and about and could return at any moment. Feel free to complete your garden with a small figurine fairy to pull it all together.
Fairy gardens are easy for beginners because caring for them is pretty simple. Putting succulents in your fairy garden creates a stable environment that does not need a lot of water or extra attention. Use low creeping plants that cover the ground as fairy “lawns.” Some fairy gardens are for the indoors only, with plants, such as, succulents and mosses; but some fairy gardens can be outdoors with more extravagant flowers and plants.
Get the whole family involved! Fairy gardens are a fun activity that you can do with your kids! HAVE FUN!
LAGUNA BEACH WEDDING :: CHRISTIN + MATT
It’s no surprise to anyone that knows me that I am a Cali girl! Southern California is literally one of the most beautiful places in the world, so imagine my excitement when one of my closest friends told me she had decided to get married in Laguna Beach!
I have known Christin and Matt for a very long time and I was sincerely honored to be able to be a part of their special day. It was a celebration I will never forget! The love between the two of them was over flowing!
They had an intimate gathering of their close friends, family, and even Parker their Yorkie got to join in on the celebration too! We are excited to share some of our favorites of their special day…

We are proud to announce the Mod Summer Inspired Shoot we collaborated with Mary Wyar on was featured on 100 layer cake!!
From100 layer cake:
“Love all things retro? What about a striking color combo? Then this one’s for you. Modernly Events + photographer Mary Wyar channeled some major vintage vibes with this mod inspiration shoot. Mary’s take: This shoot was inspired by the vibrant, colorful, and geometric sun motifs created by mid-century modern textile and interior designer Alexander Girard. After a long, hard Midwest winter, we were craving sunshine and warmth! Well, this oughta do it…”
