Because Climate Change Isn't Make Believe

Because Climate Change Isn't Make Believe

There’s only one thing we’re more passionate about than fairy doors… the planet! This is why we’re making an effort to use sustainable practices in every part of our business. We’ve teamed up with CarbonClick, a New Zealand company making it easy for people and businesses to help fight climate change.

CarbonClick looks like a green button at checkout. When you click it, a small contribution is added to your basket which purchases carbon offsets. These offsets reduce the environmental impact of the carbon emissions related to the purchase. CarbonClick’s offsets fund forest restoration, tree planting, and renewable energy projects around the world. We’re proud to be part of the fight against climate change.

We hope you’ll join us in creating a sustainable future by choosing to CarbonClick with your purchase because whilst fairies may be make believe, climate change is very real.

Styling tips for your fairy doors.

Styling tips for your fairy doors.

So your little one's fairy door has arrived and it's time to find the perfect place to set it up and sprinkle fairy dust.

Here's out top 5 ideas and styling tips:

  1. Accessorise, accessorise, accessorise! We've plenty of gorgeous accessories to complement and complete your fairy door set-up. Our bestsellers include our fairy mailbox, miniature staircase, and adorable picket fence.
  2. Wall decals are a simple way to transform your fairy nook in seconds! And with so many designs out there to choose from, the possibilities are endless!
  3. Bring the outdoors, indoors. Now that the weather is warming up, collect some bright foliage and flowers from the garden to create an indoor woodland wonderland.
  4. Displaying your fairy door on a shelf is the perfect place to show it off for all to see. Plus, it's no problem for fairies to flutter down from.
  5. If you're worried about waking your littlie up when the "tooth fairy" visits, place your fairy door in the hallway instead of bedside - this works particularly well when siblings in separate rooms are sharing one fairy door too.

Easter fun for littlies and mum!

Easter fun for littlies and mum!

The thumpety thump of bunny paws is nearly upon us! So here's some crafty fun to keep the littlies entertained over the Easter holidays, plus some gorgeously cute little bunnies to use as treats instead of adding further to the mountains of chocolate eggs and dreaded sugar highs!

No Easter is complete without your very own Mr & Mrs Ester Bunny! Early on Easter morning, they deliver their Easter eggs to all the children in Easter Land and are the most popular parents around...you will be too if you treat your little ones to this adorable pair! They love nothing more than reading stories and chatting with the rest of the Ester family, well they do love the odd cup of tea and Easter chocolate too...Mrs Bunny has to keep a close on on Mr Bunny as he's known to sneak a few too many!

We've all heard of fairy kings and fairy queens - but have you heard of bunny royalty? Princess Ester has hippity-hopped all the way to our world just in time for Easter celebrations and is the perfect chocolate-alternative gift for littlies. Her favourite activity is hosting a tea party with carrot cake cupcakes for all her fairy friends.

Follow in Princess Ester’s paw-steps with this delicious cupcake recipe.

Talking of super fun and simple activities for little ones, why not make some decorative inedible Easter eggs out of salt dough!

Here's our step-by-step guide to making salt dough Easter eggs: 

  1. Salt dough is super simple to make! Mould the dough into the shape of eggs before popping in the oven to dry. Bake at 150 degree Celsius according to size. Don't forget to make some mini eggs for fairies too!
  2. Once dry, it is decorating time! Paint them in bright patterns, add some glitter, and finish with a silk ribbon.
  3. Here’s the important bit...place your mini eggs next to your fairy door to thank the fairies and Easter bunnies for working hard to make Easter such a treat!

Have a fun-filled Easter and be sure to tag us on Instagram or Facebook with your crafty eggs and yummy cupcake creations!

Tis the Season the Fairies and Elves Have Been Waiting For

Tis the Season the Fairies and Elves Have Been Waiting For

Fairy wings are glistening. Elf bells are jingle-jangling. Reindeer hoofs are pitter pattering. It is officially the merriest season of all, so get your elastic waistbands at the ready in prep for a month of festivities and food glorious food.

And as every little girl or boy will tell you, fairies and elves are experts in putting on a good spread (they don’t call it fairy bread for no reason!) So assemble the little ones, turn up the Christmas compilation, and get ready to whip up some joy-filled delights in the kitchen:

  • Fairies love smoothies. Fact. To make a special fairy smoothie, simply blend your normal green or red smoothie (and here’s the magical bit) pour a miniature serving into a tiny little cup…our porcelain tea set is just the right size for the wee folk!
  • Add a dash of jolliness to your cookies by substituting regular choc chips with green and red M&Ms. The downside? What to do with the other colour M&Ms…
  • Our fairy footprints stencils add an instant dose of magic to morning tea. Dust cupcakes with icing sugar footprints and sprinkle chocolate powder footprints on the little one’s morning fluffy. Too easy.

When the eggs have all been beaten, the flour has been sufficiently dusted, and spoons have been licked; it's time for fairyland's imaginary tea parties to begin...and you count on us to have fanciful treats, cakes, pastries and dainty little drinks that are imperative for all fairy festivities!
