    Hello Kim,

    I have an intriguing question and thought I should ask you.

    I’m doing a Garden Fairy party for my friends daughter and I’m doing fairies in a glass jar and a lollipop for favors, and I thought that for boys a fairy is not that great, what do you suggest I put in a glass jar for the boys….please please any insight is greatly appreciated.

  96. Danielle

    June 15th, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    Hi Mayra! Obviously I’m not the wonderful Kim, but I think gnomes would be a pretty good idea. Hope this helped!
