lavender themed weddings & celebrations

Lavender as a theme for weddings and celebrations can be really beautiful. Paired with soft whites, grays and even navy, lavender can take on a very romantic and charming presentation. Whether it’s just infused in small bits, like in this place setting above or as accents to the bouquet below or used as a flavor in cocktails or desserts there are so many options once you have decided on lavender.

A classic lavender decorated cake. Just because you have selected lavender as your color palette doesn’t mean you have to have a purple cake. Small doses of lavender can go a long way. Bash Please, based in California, created the design for this cake.

Remember your cocktails and desserts can also be a place to add in your color palette or theme to your celebration. A lavender martini above and blueberry lavender ice-cream below. You can find the ice-cream recipe on

Lavender boutonnieres are enchanting and go so well with gray or navy men’s suits. A boutonniere doesn’t just have to be for weddings either, any special occasion can warrant a special detail like a boutonniere, like a birthday, holiday dinner or new year’s eve dinner. These small bunches below with rosemary would also be perfect at each place setting. Willow Oak Flower & Herb Farm did the boutonniere above.lavender boutionierres.001
