Hello lovelies! This is a very special post because it addresses two of my passions; all things food and weddings! Yes weddings! My husband and I are wedding photographers in you case you didn’t know! Do It Yourself, or DIY, projects are huge right now. There are all sorts of DIY wedding projects that allow you to create your own personalized favors and touches for your big day. I love DIY projects but edible projects are my favorite because they allow us to share so much more than we know. This project is super easy, beautiful, and fragrant! All you need are some basic items and a little creativity.
These Do It Yourself Lavender Sugar Favors are an easy arrangement that can double as wedding favors and place card for your guest. Lavender sugar is a great alternative to vanilla sugar as a topping for pastries, yogurt, chocolate ice cream/pudding and it’s also a wonderful sweetener for tea and lemonade. Most people like to use white sugar but I like this unprocessed brown sugar way better!!!
2 Tbsp. dried Lavender
1 C. Brown sugar or sugar of your choice
Jar with a tight-fitting lid
The process is very easy! I like to place both the sugar and lavender in the food processor and pulse for a few seconds. This makes the sugar and lavender a bit finer and extracts essential oils from the lavender as well.
