Herbs and edible flowers not only look nice on goat's cheese, they also impart their flavours too. Lavender and cheese may not be an immediate combination that comes to mind but it works really well - the flowery notes hit your palate first before the tart and creamy taste of the goat's cheese comes through. The trick is to go easy on the lavender.
If you're not game to try edible flowers, then try this with herbs, they
work a treat and taste amazing. Herbs that go will with cheese include
chives, thyme, oregano and basil.
