This is a simple and inexpensive DIY favour for wedding or party. Lavender sugar is great in shortbread and sprinkled over cakes and fruit.
What you’ll need:
- Normal white sugar (or caster sugar)
- Bunch / handfuls of dried lavender blossoms
- Large container with lid
- Fill the container with sugar
- Add the dried lavender blossoms
- Seal the container and let it stand for 2 weeks, shaking the container occasionally to mix evenly
- After the 2 weeks, pour sugar through sifter to get the blossoms out
- Fill small jars or bags with the lavender sugar
- Add a label and some pretty ribbon
Storing your lavender sugar:
You can make the sugar up to 2 months before the wedding. Package in small bags or jars up to 2 months before the big day. On the label, let guests know to use within 6 months, and suggest uses – great in shortbread, sprinkled over a sponge or stirred into berries.

* The amount of lavender, sugar and container size used are dependent on how many favours you wish to make
