Like the seasons of the year a cherry blossom goes through four stages from birth to fruition.The end of April celebrates this special occasion with a bouquet of these beauties at your disposal! On April 30th - May 1st, Brooklyn Botanical Gardens hosts Sakura Matsuri, its 35th annual cherry blossom festival in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. The two-day event marks the end of Hanami (which is Japanese for flower viewing) and in its honor, BBG will have musical performances, a fashion show, and dances that show appreciation for this special time of year.

A little greenery goes a long way, adding a natural layer of design that brings life and color to your home! Examples of colors of the cherry blossoms and greenery in home.
Cherry Blossoms provide the in-home inspiration for the pinks and whites in this room.
