Once their gardens were set, they planted some vincas.
Fairy Garden girls birthday lunch
Birthdays are special, especially when one is turning 6 years old! The girls were treated to an individually boxed lunch of Fairy Bread (a must-have at birthday parties in Australia), fairy fruit wands and a bag of veggies designed to look like a butterfly.

Thrifty yet fun, simple yet sweet was this Fairy Garden Birthday Party!
How dreary the world would be if there were no fairies?
