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.

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band...

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
