Caring for Fairies

Building a Fairy House.

Fairy Houses can take many forms and can be created in many different places. Find a quiet place away from roads or busy pathways. The base of a tree or the side of a rock could be just right. Close to the ground is usually best.

Many fairy houses look so natural that they are almost hidden. Have fun building them everywhere, in every season, and enjoy all of your special visitors!

Be respectful of plants that are growing. Try not to disturb plants that are still living, such as ferns, mosses and flowers. Fairies are careful not to harm anything that is growing.


Sticks, bark, dry grasses, pebbles, shells, feathers, seaweed, pinecones and nuts are just some of the materials you can use. A fairy house built in the woods will look different than one built at the beach!

What Do Fairies Eat?

So as you can guess, milk is believed to be something that fairies love to drink. They mostly love fresh milk...the creamier the better. And, speaking of cream - what else do fairies eat? Cream and butter, of course.

Sweets are also a favorite. The sweeter and prettier the more likely the fairies will love you for it.

What Do Fairies Drink?

  • Ale

  • Beer

  • Wine

  • Mead

  • Rum

Another long-standing belief and traditional beverage of the fairies is wine. If you meet anyone who works with fairies on a regular basis, whether magically or simply naturally, they will most likely tell you that fairies love wine. So if you decide to leave cakes and milk out for the fairies this Midsummer, switch it up for Samhain and leave out some bread and wine.
