They say that one of the best ways to draw fairies into a garden is to lay out some sweet things for them to eat. Fairies are especially fond of sweets, as any story about them might tell you. In fact, they graciously reward humans who give them something sweet to eat!
This summer is a time of delicious things as fruits and berries are ripe on the trees and bushes, and the harvest is plentiful. The fairies will be anxious to eat some delicious treats that come from the forests and the trees, crafted by the finest fairy bakers and pastry chefs. There will be plenty of tea parties, brunches, lunches and dinners, and they’ll all be crowned with a fairy dessert worthy of royalty.
Have a look at some of the things that might appear in a fairy garden dessert course, including ones in your own fairy garden!
