Lavender French Country Table Setting

I've been inspired by my recent trip to France to make this simple French country table setting!

Dried lavender from my parent's garden is in the Le Lapin French water pitcher.

At each place setting there are two simple pieces of lavender with name card holders made from wine corks.  For this setting, I put down my favorite Parisian bakery/pastry shop names to remind me of my trip!

The wine cork place name card holders were actually used at my wedding.  Needless to say I used to have about 120 of them... all made by my Dad (thanks Dad!)

A look from the head of the table... the faux-lavender in the anduze pot is from one of my favorite shops in St. Helena (in the Napa valley).

I like how my Juliska purple goblets go with the lavender.

I love the simplicity of this French country feeling table with the lavender and burlap.  It was so easy to set up.
