This Candle is amazing. It smells like freshly cut flowers from the garden

My friend Jenna over at sweet details posted on this fabulous party favor idea from Martha Stewart.
What a great way to send your guests home with a piece of the evening.

Lavender Lemonade
San pellegrino
Cheese platter with assorted breads and crackers

Lavender Lemonade

3 cups sugar
7 sprigs lavender (stems and buds), plus additional for garnish*
2 cups fresh lemon juice (from about 12 lemons)
1/2 cup fresh lime juice (from about 5 limes)

In a large saucepan, bring one gallon of water and the sugar to a boil. Remove from heat; add 7 lavender sprigs and lemon and lime juices. Cool to room temperature, strain, and chill. Serve on ice, with additional lavender for garnish.
Servings: Makes about 16 servings

* If unavailable, substitute fresh basil or lemon thyme.

A small drink station or bar set up is always a welcome site. It gives guests a chance to mingle and prepare their drink just the way they like it.
