Make a Yellow Fairy Garden for early Spring

Yellow is the perfect color to welcome the Spring!

A few days of warm weather can often bring bulbs up to flower. Yellow is a sure sign that spring is around the corner! That’s why I thought it might be fun to create a Yellow  Spring Fairy Garden! I included Daffodils in this display, and they are a very tall flower. Therefore I also included a tall Fairy house and a pot. By filling the pot with extra flowers and miniatures, the display can have lots

White: white is a neutral color that you can add to almost any display. It’s an excellent companion with yellow because it can carry

The basic structure- weeds clear!
the extremes of very pale yellow all the way through to orange colors. By using a color palette that includes white, you can use yellow all the way from a pale butter, all the way through to Orange. Green is always going to be your backdrop in a Fairy garden display that includes live plants, so be sure that you use different shades of green as well. This will help to blend all the shades of yellow together.
For the display in this post, I purchased Calendula, Pansies, Viola, and Snapdragons. The Daffodils, Succulent, Allysum and budding Rosebush were already there.
The nursery has so many choices! I could have really gone wild with the plants for this Garden! But, I wanted to keep it simple. So, I chose plants that were common across the United States.

Since I had already chosen the Daffodils to be my floral focal point, I cleared the area of weeds around the daffodils. Next, I decided to use the Daffodils as the tallest point of reference. Therefore, I added the pot alongside the Daffodils to gradually train the eye downward.
After choosing the plants at the nursery, I continued this triangular shape by adding
the plants with taller ones in the center, and shorter ones on the sides. Eventually, I did add a flowering Succulent behind the Daffodils that the height was even taller. Finally, I brought in some butterfly stakes to add some color, and fill in this height differentiation.
