Create a Magical, Fairytale Garden for Your Home

Finding inspiration for your garden can be tricky. You want it to be usable, while also feeling creative. If you have kids, or you just want to tap into your childish side, taking inspiration from fairytales and magic is a great idea. Many of us go looking for fairies or gnomes in the garden when we're little, so why not bring them into your home? You can create a magical land in your own backyard with some fun inspiration from fairy tales, legends and mythical beasts. It could be fun for both children and adults, and an interesting way to design your garden.

Build a Fantastical Structure

A fun place where the kids can hide and even adults might be able to squeeze in can give your garden a standout feature. One idea is to build a treehouse, which could be anything from a castle to a pirate ship. If you have a suitable tree or two, you could create an incredibly fun space where the kids can explore and play. A treehouse isn't the only option though. How about a little hobbit hole that provides a comfortable den to relax in? Or perhaps a castle or playhouse that stands on its own. Even a gazebo or a little cabin or shed could be made to look like a fairytale location.


Light It Up

The right lights can do an awful lot for your fairytale garden. They can give your garden a magical quality, so it's not just dark at night. You could start with something simple, like a string of solar-powered lights through a tree or bush. But if you want to do something more sophisticated, a company like Allen Outdoor Solutions can help with permanent outdoor lighting. As well as creating a magical garden that you can use once the sun has gone down, you can improve the security of your home and make your garden safer.

Create a Mini World

If you have ever searched for fairies at the bottom of the garden, creating a mini world in your backyard is a fun idea. You can add tiny features that make it look like miniature creatures are living around your home. For an easy, readymade way to do it, you can use doll's house furniture or other miniatures. It's also easy to find mini plant pots or small plants, as well as use bird houses. If you're particularly crafty, you can make your own items too.

Introduce Fairytale Creatures

You might just stick to having some fairytale homes, but you can also dot some magical creatures around your garden. If you feel like a lot of the fairy or gnome ornaments you usually get are a bit cheesy, have a look around to see what else you can find. While some things might look a bit cheap for the look you want, others will help to give your garden a fun but sophisticated look.


Create a fairytale garden for your home if you want a fun space that you can enjoy every day. Adults and children alike can benefit from a creative outdoor space.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
