It's in March/April, the perfect time to go to Japan, when there is a trip, to admire the blossoming of the cherry blossoms ( sakura , in Japanese). This season is called Hanami .
Hanami means "looking at flowers", it is the traditional Japanese custom of appreciating flowers, especially cherry blossoms ( sakura ). From the end of March or the beginning of April, the sakura come into full bloom in Japan for around ten days. It is the beginning of spring and many Japanese go to parks to admire the fragile and delicate beauty of these flowers. It is also an opportunity to picnic, chat, sing with family or friends under the cherry blossom trees.
In France, flowering takes place around mid-April, right now! As an unconditional lover of the flower of Japan, I wholeheartedly wanted to say a few words to you about them, to put them a little more in the spotlight these days.
If you want to decorate your interior with cherry blossoms, you can find the step by step in this article from last month . Folding is very simple.
Once the flowers are unfolded, you can make small bouquets by mounting them on a stem using floratape and also glue which will permanently attach the flower to its base.
We have developed complete Cherry Blossom Bouquet Kits containing the tutorial and all the materials necessary to make a bouquet of 20 flowers.
You can also mount them on a real branch found in nature. The brown floratape will help to camouflage the assembly on the wooden branch.
This is the opportunity for me to end this post by wishing you beautiful spring creations, and also, to tell you how much your enthusiasm and kindness on the blog and in the store touch me every day. This inspires me to share more creations and DIYs with you!
