Three Cheers for Cherry Blossoms!

We're a little cherry blossom obsessed. Who can blame us? We're headquartered in Washington, DC where everything is coming up blossoms this time of year. The Cherry Blossom Festival starts March 20th and lasts until April 15th. Last year, we did a brief history of the blossoms that you can find here

This year, we're going to focus on three cherry blossom themes that you can incorporate into your next event, regardless of location. 🌸🌸🌸

1. Cherry Blossom Tablescapes

Nothing says Spring like a cherry blossom tablescape. Whether it is a grandiose centerpiece or a small place setting, cherry blossoms can add a little color to any event. The real things can get expensive but a faux cherry blossom centerpiece can be found at Pier 1, Amazon, and Houzz.

2. Cherry Blossom Treats

Sick of centerpieces? A treat can do just the trick instead. With a little bit of flavoring and food coloring you can make your guests feel like they have just walked into cherry blossom heaven. A cherry blossom cake, cupcake, or doughnut can give you an insta-worthy hostess prize. Check out pinterest for some amazing recipes.

3. Cherry Blossom Beverages

All the brands are doing it! From Mcdonalds to Starbucks, big companies are joining in on the cherry blossom craze. You can make yourself a nice mixed drink with a cherry blossomtini or have a frappucino! Looking for a recipe? We have you covered:
