Decor Ideas: Cherry Blossoms

One of our Twitter Followers posted about the amazing Cherry Blossom Trees coming to life in Washington D.C.  Inspired by this Spring-time phenomenon and gorgeous image by chictraveler.com, we have a cherry blossom inspiration board to get your Spring Time kick started!

Every Spring, D.C. celebrates Spring’s the National Cherry Blossom Festival, commemorating the March 27, 1912, gift of Japanese cherry trees. Mayor Ozaki donated the trees hoping to enhance a friendship between the United States and Japan and to celebrate a continued  partnership between the two countries.

Every year, the National Cherry Blossom Festival takes place for two-weeks at the start of Spring.  This year, 2012 commemorates 100 years since this Japanese gesture.
