It’s that time of year again! Cherry blossom season has begun! And, the celebration taking place in Washington, DC is the Centennial Celebration!
In 1912, over three thousand cherry blossom trees were shipped to Washington, DC – a gift given on behalf of Tokyo by Yukio Ozaki and Jokichi Takamine. Now, one hundred years later…people still enjoy the calm beauty and gently drifts of the cherry blossoms that surround the Tidal Basin. (Read more about the Cherry Blossom Festival and the history of this wondrous gift from Japan here.)
Before I continue on to my bridal inspiration board, here is a list of cherry blossom festivals to help celebrate life…friendship…and spring!

- New York, NY: April 1-April 29
- San Francisco, CA: April 14-15 and April 21-22
