The lavender is in bloom, again, and my bushes are HUGE this year. Of course, the best thing to do with huge lavender bushes is have a party!! I have such fun planning and hosting my annual lavender garden party, and this year was no exception.
I used both vintage quilts and quilts my mom made for the tablecloths…
Than and the kids cleaned up the yard and patio, and even thought up this cute seating idea…
Of course there were vases of lavender everywhere, but my favorite part is the buffet table 🙂
Olive Oil Crackers
Sweet Mint Tea
Hope you can come join me next year 🙂
I forgot to post pictures from my garden party a few weeks ago! Here are the yummy goodies…
A few recipes…
Berry Yogurt Cups
Ginger Lime Fruit
Chive Lemon Dip
Chocolate Mint Cookie Squares
and of course, lavender lemonade (I had fun making special cup toppers on my Cameo cutting machine.
And now, a few weeks later, the bulk of the lavender harvest has been preserved. Let me know if you need a sweet smelling wand for your sock drawer!
Katya loves helping me harvest things from the yard, especially flowers. Here we are getting lavender for more lavender wands. I am thankful for such a beautiful place to live where I am surrounded by everyday reminders of God’s creation, both floral and human!!
