Lavender is beautiful, unique, and versatile. Of all the flowers in Las Vegas, it is one of the most popular. Lavender is known for its intoxicating fragrance and its calming properties. But did you know that this popular flower is edible, too? From cupcakes to cocktails, lavender has many culinary uses. However, its value extends far beyond the kitchen. In candles, wreaths, vases, and more, lavender plays a starring role in home decorating.
With its cheerful color and delightful scent, lavender sets the right tone for any special occasion. When placed in a vase surrounding a candle and dressed with a pink or purple ribbon, it is one of the most stunning floral centerpieces around. Lavender votives can be used as a standalone centerpiece or grouped in clusters for an even more eye-catching display.
The options are endless for creating a wreath made of lavender. You can create a thin wreath made entirely of lavender stems, or you can incorporate bits of lavender into an existing wreath to give it an added element of interest. Both fresh and dried sprigs of lavender work well for a wreath. With its timeless, neutral colors and fragrance, lavender can be used in a wreath year-round. Hang it on the front door for a warm welcome or use it as a holiday display.
Candles are a great way to showcase lavender’s pleasant aroma. Instead of buying premade candles from the store, however, why not make your own? Premade candles can contain synthetic scents, which detract from the natural fragrances of lavender and can even cause allergic reactions. If you’re looking for a simple, creative, crowd-pleasing decorative piece, consider making lemon lavender candles. All you need to do is carve out a lemon half, fill it with candle wax, and add bits of lavender for a garnish. When you light the candle, the complementary scents of lemon and lavender fill the air.
Lavender floral centerpieces are some of the most alluring and attractive decorative items your home can have. Florists recommend showcasing lavender bunches in white ceramic vases, as white symbolizes purity and complements lavender’s soothing and calming properties. However, you should ultimately choose a color scheme and display vessel that works with your home’s style. Lavender displays dress up a table for dinner parties quite nicely. They can also be placed in bathrooms for a natural air freshener or used in any other location for a touch of color.
There are dozens of ways lavender can decorate your home. From beautiful floral displays to candles, lavender has a place in decorative schemes large and small. And the best part is that you can use all parts of the flower, which ensures none of it goes to waste. Next time you need a home decoration, try a lavender-based display.
