An Invitation...Lavender Farm Faire- Sequim's Lavender Weekend

Lavender flows through my family's body like blood.  About 10 years ago my family picked up our roots in the Seattle Area and moved over to the little town of Sequim on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State.  We purchased a 10 acre Lavender Farm with a Historic Home as a Gift Shop and a Restaurant in a separate greenhouse style building.  It was exactly what my mom thought she wanted as her retirement.
Things didn't go as smoothly as planned with the downturn of the economy, and there have been  a lot of changes on the farm (I wrote a bit about them in my Barnwood & Vintage Window Planter post, if you want to read more).
Needless to say, we still have a Online and Wholesale Lavender Based Business and some beautiful fields to tend.  Each year, the 3rd full weekend in July, the whole City of Sequim lays out the Lavender Carpets for guests from all over the globe to come enjoy All Things Lavender at the Sequim Lavender Farm Faire
My sister, Emily from Lola Floral, Madisyn and I headed out to Sequim (a 2 hour drive from the Seattle Area) this morning to help pull the last minute preparations together for our Pop Up Shop we create at Lavender in the Park each year.  It is a TON of work to put it all together, but it is always very fun and worth the stress.

We spent our day putting together our Baking Mixes, such as Cranberry Lavender Scone Mix and Lemon Lavender Shortbread; Labeling our Bath & Body Products and pulling out vintage treasures we use as Display Pieces (and all are for sale) to create our Pop Up Shop.  It always portrays the character of the farm, even though the Shop is off site, you feel as though you've stepped into a French Country Market.

Emily and I wanted to cordially invite you to attend, please come say "hi" to us at Lavender in the Park.  Or, if you are unable to attend in person, you can always visit our Lavender Shop Online at www.CedarbrookLavender.com.  the bunch will be taking over all of our vintage treasures, woodwork and Bath & Body Products as well!

We are in the final phases of re-branding our product line, and are VERY excited to debut it with our Purely Lavender products this weekend!  I can't wait to post some photos!

For now, enjoy some photos I took on the farm today.
