A Love Affair With Lavender

Lavish your next event with a little color!  Lavender colored floral arrangements are one of the many popular trends that are popping up this season. At A Legendary Event, we love to pair lavender flowers with additional hues such as cream and eggplant. A lovely touch to compliment the table decor is lavender scented candles placed around the floral arrangement. Not only will the candle light create a legendary ambiance, but your guests will also feel relaxed and rejuvenated. alegendaryevent.com
