Floral Spotlight: Cherry Blossoms

by jacin on May 9, 2011

Though a seasonal floral, cherry blossoms offer a sign of spring after a dreary winter for most and are available starting in late March in warmer climates and all the way in to Mid-May for the northeast regions. There are several families of these lovely blossoms but most provide a white to light pink color burst to your decor, and a little can go a long way with branches covered in blooming buds.

I had a few May brides in California who are getting married in the next few weeks request these gorgeous floral accents, and I just love how they provide a simple and sweet touch.

Here are some of my favorites:

We even had them hanging from the ceiling at our For Japan With Love event a few weeks back in San Francisco!

Not surprisingly, this one is from the amazingly talented Preston Bailey!

And lastly, here’s one from my parents front yard in Connecticut!

Have a lovely week!

If I were to have had a spring wedding, I would have totally incorporated cherry blossoms. Everyone loves cherry blossoms!

Since cherry blossom trees are so abundant in my area, I rarely stop and appreciate their beauty! They’re so lovely.

Love, love, love, love, love! You’d never guess, but I actually have a small cherry blossom tattoo, so I just can’t resist them for wedding decor!

Cherry blossoms are the first sign of spring here in CT! These are some great ideas to incorporate them into a wedding.

Love. I’m obsessed with cherry blossoms. Part of me really wishes we were having a flowery, pink wedding in April under the cherry blossoms in DC. Sigh.. so gorgeous.

Cherry Blossoms are always a good idea- the symbolism is wonderful and the look is always romantic. I love this post it showcases great looks and design, from the simple and DIY to Preston’s always over the top interpretations- love this and going to share
