Party Inspiration: Lavender and Lemon

I'm entering full party-mode in preparation for my daughter's birthday this weekend.  Hopefully I will get some pictures to share.  Until then, I want to leave you with an inspiration.

Back in April I asked what projects you all might like to see.  Well, one dear reader wrote that she is preparing for her mother's 60th birthday in August.  Her mother loves gardening, cross stitch, and, of course, her grandchildren.  The family has fantastic plans for her.  However, here's a little more inspiration...

Invitations or Cards
How cute is this card from Upon a Fold.  Imagine a special stitched message.  Just attach a label on the other side with party decorations, and you have an amazing invitation.

Or for a more graphical look, check-out this one that Julia (Picture Party) found.  I love the yellow.

Lemon and Lavender
When I came across Kate from Centsational Girl's lavender lemon cake, I thought what a delicious theme for a party... soft yellows and vibrant purples.  Lemon and Lavender flavors, maybe with some rosemary as well.

Isn't her cake lovely.



Ilenia from Simply Nabiki threw an amazing lavender-themed party for her mother's birthday, that is full of amazing ideas.  My favorite details are (1) the chocolate cake balls rolled in lilac non pareils (my own mother loves when I make cake balls) and...

... (2) the sandwich toppers with photos of her mother when she was younger. What a cute idea.

I hope these ideas help to inspire you.  Now time to return to party prep here.

I LOVE lavender. I wanted to make some lavender bread but could not find any dried lavender, so it didn't get made. :( Love your site tho!

I've awarded you something on my site, thought you'd be interested ;)
