Board #340 | Urban Lavender

It must be the weather, but I find myself drawn to soft colors these days. Here, rustic, French country lavender comes to the big city. A chic short dress, an urban venue, paired with a simple hand-tied bouquet, jars of lavender, and antique French linens. I imagine an intimate family dinner followed by meeting up with friends for dancing.

Mood: French country meets city chic
Palette: sidewalk gray, lavender

    One of my favorites so far (next to the recently yellow board and the dove gray board)! I am actually planning on putting lavender in our invitations :)

  • I love the idea behind this board! It sounds like a lovely celebration.

    It never gets old seeing flowers, candles, and in this case lavendar in those mason jars.

    That is by far one of my favourite & cost effective decor options.

    Beautiful Board.

    So funny. I was researching lavender bouquets for me and my girls last night. I even like the lavender place settings as boutonnieres for the guys.

  • Lady Kickface says:

    I’m having a lavender wedding. it was originally going to be the colour, but more and more i like the idea of including the scent. I’m planning on a lavender bouquet, and maybe lavender bombonierres.

    Anyway, i love this.

    For a lavender wedding, we got dried lavender in bulk and made smaller bags for the welcome boxes. It smelled fabulous!

    Love this look!
