Featured Flower: Cherry Blossoms

When I was thirteen years old, I was offered the opportunity to travel to China and had the very good fortune to be able to go. Being an anime nerd, I was excited to possibly see the cherry blossoms bloom, but I didn't realize how short their bloom is! Unfortunately, we were about two weeks late for me to see them, but to this day I still love their aesthetic and I would definitely return to the East in order to experience them.

With that in mind, let's talk about these gorgeous multi-colored flowers!

You'll find cherry blossoms spread across Japan, China, Thailand, Nepal, Korea and many more countries in the eastern side of the globe.

The cherry blossom is considered the national flower of Japan (along with the chrysanthemum), and has deep roots in the country’s history.

There are 200 different varieties of cherry blossom.

Each tree may only bloom for up to a week.

As a symbol of fragility, cherry blossoms are very meaningful, bright, and can greatly impact how you build a bouquet! Would you ever consider putting cherry blossoms in your bouquet? Let us know in the comments!
