{#145} lovely lavender

{colors} lavender, linen, white
{description} I wanted to create a something that both soon to be sister-in-laws will adore.  I’m a big fan of intimate outdoor weddings and I pictured salvaged windows as a seating chart leaning against an old tree to direct the guests to canopied tables tucked away in the garden. Sprigs of lavender make their appearance in many ways – to the simple boutonnière, refreshing signature drink and in the landscape. I also love the use of delicate lace, lavender gingham and vintage French linens in this board. {first seen on Love & Lavender}

  12. love this board! reminds me of the time my cousin and i thought we could TOTALLY sell lavender potpourri from a little self-created sweat shop in the basement. it smelled like pesto all over the house for weeks until my mom finally put the kabosh on the whole operation.

  13. Such a beautiful color. Another way to make a wedding colorful is through wedding favors that give back to a good cause. I love the wedding scrolls favors from the American Cancer Society. They will surely add a pop of color and excitement to any table and will create a lasting memory for guests.
