Enjoy Magical Woodland Fairy Displays (including three new display additions!)

Have you visited Gardner Village this spring? The Woodland Fairies are back for their second annual stop at The Village. What started last year as a single display area in the courtyard has grown into three primary display areas and a magical Wishing Bridge. Let's take a look at each of these charming fairy playlands.

Main Fairy Display
In the center of Gardner Village, next to Celebrations by Modern Display, you'll find the primary display area, complete with large, handmade fairy dwellings, gorgeous handcrafted fairies, and bitty details designed from pine cones, branches, moss, and other natural elements.

The whole thing is quite remarkable. Read more about how these impressive displays came to be here.

Fly on in to Gardner Village before the end of May to see it all in person. You'll be glad you did.

Fairy Tree #1 (New!)
Word has spread since last year, and more fairies have decided to set up shop in Gardner Village this year. One of the new dwellings on the block sits in the big tree outside of Kamille's.

Again, each detail was crafted by hand, including this stunning door.

Fairy Tree #2 (New!)
Discover the second new fairy setting at the base of the tree outside The Bead Farm. It's a gorgeous place for fairies to get their rest and enjoy calming activities such as picnics and even harp play.

Even the wood fences surrounding the new displays were hand crafted from tree branches. What talent!

Wishing Bridge (New!)
Find your own fairy magic under the Wishing Bridge.

Grab a wishing ribbon from inside Aunt Elsie's, make your wish on it, and tie it to the bridge for the fairies to find.

Make your mark and become a part of our fairy fun by adding a wish today.

Fun Fact: The beautiful wood "Wishing Bridge" signs hanging above the iconic covered bridge in Gardner Village were handmade by talented Careen Densley. The letters were actually hand carved. Isn't that something?

Additional Displays
Beyond the main Woodland Fairy Displays, you'll find additional whimsical settings throughout The Village.

Make sure you take a close look at the window displays at The Bead Farm. They're so sweet and come complete with hand-beaded details, like this sparkling toadstool. So pretty!

Something for Everybody
Whether you come with the family or make a date out of it, the free Woodland Fairy Displays throughout Gardner Village are a wonderful way to spark your imagination this spring.
