5 Ideas for decorating events with preserved lavender
Lavender is an extremely versatile variety of flower as it matches with everything and it always looks great! You can create a unique ambience at your wedding, especially if it is held during the day, outside or in a rustic setting. Lavender is perfect for creating small bouquets for the tables, for decorating the seats in the church, for personalising the cards, or for making the bridal bouquet. You can also give a touch of floral art in miniature by putting a small lavender detail in the lapel of the guests.
Thanks to their delicate mauve colour, lavender is the perfect flower for the floral art decoration for a First Communion. You can swap the traditional white headdress for a crown of preserved lavender flowers, which also happens to be in fashion. To harmonize everything together, decorate the seats with little bunches of lavender and, as a finishing touch, crown the cake with a small centrepiece of lavender, which you can keep as a reminder of this special day.
A romantic dinner
The advantage of preserved lavender is that you can prepare the table in advance without worrying that the flowers will dry or wilt. To achieve a more intimate atmosphere, don’t forget to put an odourless candle beside the flowers.

Decoration arrangements with lavender preserved
Lavender in vases
We love lavender in vases for decorating homes. We opt for vases made of natural materials, such as: wood, metal, etc. However, a little lavender in a glass jar can also look good.
Candles with lavender
Candles wrapped in lavender create super romantic atmospheres. They can be special decorations for romantic or anniversary dinners. All you have to do is choose small bouquets of lavender and place them around the candles using string.
We rely on lavender wreaths for decorating doors. We love this decorative idea because it gives the entire space a very rustic and romantic touch and also, these wreaths are capable of creating a very warm ambiance.
Lavender flowers aren’t just used to decorate interior spaces, these natural flowers also have medicinal properties, since their essential oil is known for acting as a natural painkiller, and is very beneficial for your health.
However, if you only want to use it for decorative purposes, we recommend you use preserved lavender, since this type of lavender is completely natural, but has undergone a stabilizzation process and doesn’t need hardly any maintenance, i.e. it doesn’t need any light or water to maintain its beauty over time.
