Cherry Blossom Inspiration

Nevermind the fact that we had some unexpected  arctic chills and” conversational” minimal amounts of snow this past weekend (in March!), it’s peak bloom time in DC for the beloved Cherry Blossoms and that means the annual Cherry Blossom festival, massive tourists making their way into the city amongst locals grabbing lunch and just enjoying the weather along the tidal basin. It’s also a reassuring sign that Spring weather  is on its way, even though we are already in Spring according to the calendar.

In the spirit of the blooms, here’s some inspiration on how you can incorporate a little cherry blossom love into your decor!

These branch centerpieces create an umbrella over guests- and have clear glass vases so all can see through, allowing conversation to flourish.
How fabulous would these earrings be for the bride, or against a soft grey bridesmaid dress?
Love these hand painted glass gems from Etsy Seller GlassGemsbyChristine- they are a perfect accent on invitations, programs, or favor boxes to subtlely pull your theme together.
Stationery is the first wedding-related look your guests will encounter- Make a beautiful first impression and give guests a sneak peek into your design with
these fabulous printable Save the dates by Etsy Seller inkOBSESSIONdesign and pocketfold inviations by Etsy seller LooseEndsbySarah.
A trio of submerged blossoms, petals and stems would look gorgeous on any alongside candlelight. I love the richness and variety of textures. Double fabulous? Alternate these low arrangements with the high branch centerpieces above to increase the visual interest in the room. Double LOVE!
Check out these lumniaries from Etsy seller PoppySeedStation- love the vellum designs use the larger ones as table numbers, and the smaller ones as either escort cards, or pre-place at the tables around simple centerpieces. Lovely!
No veil for you? Any bride to be would look stunning in this Sakura cherry blossom branch hair clip from etsy seller TheHoneyComb: 
How fantastic would a dessert bar look against the backdrop of this fabulous vinyl decal from Etsy seller WallDesigner006?
