Denise's Lavender Cones
I love these little lavender cones created by Denise Vasaya (a wedding design consultant) for her own wedding. They not only looked fabulous but filled the entire room with a lovely scent.
Makes 100 cones
1 lb bag of French blue lavender buds ($13.99 any floral supply company)
2 bundles of gold cording (M & J trimming NYC 1.99 ea)
2 sets standard round labels (Paper Presentation $10.00 ea.)
2 standard size rolls gold leaf wall paper (Denise used hand-leafed custom wallpaper from one of her clients (Studio E NYC) retailing at a $72 per yard) Any sturdy paper can be used.
1. Cut 4” square into cones and secured them with glue.
2. Secured the cord in place with a label.
3. Fill with lavender
