Flashback Friday Lavender Pots and Free Printable Gift Tags
This week I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting both in my personal and professional life. While I haven’t had time to share anything new with you, I’ve taken the opportunity to look back and find a few things you may have missed and, well, 4 years later, I’m still pretty excited about these little lavender pots and still love gifting plants to friends, new neighbors and of course, myself. So let’s flash back to May 2012 and have a little late spring fun, shall we?
I’ve always loved lavender for it’s beautiful scent and it’s ease to maintain, but was even more inspired by it during our trip to St. Helena
last Spring. I hope to find a little spare time this year to visit a lavender farm outside of St. Louis or in Kansas. Potted lavender lavender makes a beautiful gift and also make excellent shower favors that double as decorations. I personally love incorporating it in our kitchen and laundry room. The fragrance is unmistakable and very welcoming. On the patio lavender will keep pesky mosquitos at bay.

Paint your pots and saucers…this process just takes about 5 minutes per pot. The paint dries quickly as well!
Add your plant, fill the area around it with soil and add rocks if you wish.
I like to include care instructions when gifting plants. You can download free printable
care cards here. There are several different varieties, but they all require the same care and minimal effort.
I also use larger pots of lavender on the porch and patio to keep mosquitoes at bay. Because it’s imperative to allow the soil to drain, I created these easy DIY galvanized planters
