Lavender is a winner in the wedding scene. The fragrance captures the guests and brings a calm among the bridal party. Lavender has a lure for so many as it is a flower that neither is masculine or feminine and enjoyed by both females or males. They are extra popular in cocktails, tall centerpieces and for bridesmaids, but continue to be a great "theme" wedding idea.
Elegance and simple beauty with dried lavender standing on its own as a bouquet or placed on a table by itself or with greenery.
Lavender and greenery filled bouquets will be a must have for 2019. With the addition of more purple hues with lavender replacing blush tones and rust colors replacing flashy metallics.
Still an environmentally friendly option to toss lavender on the bride and groom for wedding toss.

Happy New Years!
One of my goals this year is to do a little more pampering. That is always a good idea, but I seem to get busy and ignore myself. I think that is a common problem with so many of us.
This is just a basic face mask recipe that you'll find everywhere online. It is versatile and you can change up the recipe to fit your face type.
Flat champagne and wine can actually help as a toner on the skin. The antioxidants and tartaric acid helps to tone the skin while the antibacterial properties help fight elements that promote acne.
What a great way to use up leftover champagne and pamper yourself at the same time!
May this new year brings good things for you!
