Through the years, Halloween emerged from marking the beginning of winter with an ancient Celtic holiday - to children wearing costumes while trick-or-treating. Decorations of witches, ghosts, jack-o-lanterns, skulls, black cats, ravens, and spider webs fill houses with mystery and celebration. Festive gatherings are a common practice on October 31st of each year. In recent years, fairy gardening has taken Halloween decorating one step further by adding miniature plants, fairy garden accessories, miniature houses, and miniature trees to containers or miniscapes. When planning a Halloween theme, gardeners can select from Gothic miniature accessories to fun and whimsical figurines.
