Style & Life Blog: The Prettiest Carafe Set + Lavender Lemonade Recipe


The Prettiest Carafe Set 


Lavender Lemonade Recipe

When it comes to serveware, I typically like things that are clean white and clear glass.  If I am adding color, I will do it with table linens, flowers or the food or drink itself. However, when I saw this pretty floral set, I could not resist. Over the past few years, my entertaining has transitioned from elaborate dinners to lighter fare…often just apps or desserts and this set is perfect for an afternoon with friends. I created this lavender lemonade recipe to serve but you could also use a sangria or punch. 

Lavender Lemonade 


Serves 10 

(you will need another pitcher as the above carafe only holds 3-4 servings)

2 cups sugar

7 lavender sprigs, including stems

2 cups fresh lemon juice (use approximately 10 lemons)

1/2 cup fresh lime juice (use approximately 4 limes)


In a large saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil. Remove from heat and add lavender sprigs, lemon and lime juices. Let mixture chill, then strain. Once lemonade is chilled, serve in this pretty set. 

Just add a plate of macarons and you are ready for a cozy chat with friends!
