Eat Your Flowers This Fall!

Elegant fall tables have never been more creative than with edible flowers included on the menu. Choose a recipe that goes well with your menu or add a touch of edible flowers to your drinks or desserts. The experts at Beneva recommend pairing edible flower foods or drinks with a gorgeous table setting for an overall effect that’s as delightful as fall colors.

Our Essence of Autumn design makes a lovely centerpiece for any occasion, but will look especially fitting at brunch or afternoon tea. Featuring roses in orange and yellow accompanied with green and red hypericum and green hydrangea, this compact display captures the majestic beauty of the changing seasons.

For afternoon tea, brunch, or dessert, serve these Lavender Cookies and enjoy the look and taste of flowers!


  • 5/8 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon lavender flowers
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup colored sugar for decoration (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon lavender flowers


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar. Beat the egg, and blend into the butter and sugar. Mix in the lavender flowers and the flour. Drop batter by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets.
  3. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden. Remove cookies to cooling racks, and sprinkle with decorative sugar and additional lavender flowers if desired.
