Lavender has long been a favorite color of genteel ladies. This shade of purple suggests refinement along with grace, elegance, and “something special.” This charming design begins with two graduated round tiers, iced in snow white. The base of each tier is wrapped in a purple ribbon band which is then embellished with hand-piped beads in lavender. A motif consisting of more hand-piped beads with a strand of purple overlaid, is applied to each layer, creating a dramatic scalloped “drape” effect. Clutches of elegant lavender roses, complemented by individual white rose petals adorn the piece, between the two tiers, and crowning the work. “Lavender Dreams” is a sophisticated and versatile centerpiece for any affair, from wedding to birthday.
