Sweet Cherry Blossoms

One of the wonderful things about spring is all the different flowering branches that can be used to create gorgeous arrangements. Cherry Blossoms with their delicate pink shading and light fragrant scent can help to create a fabulous spring centerpiece. Cherry Blossoms have five pedals that grow in clusters of four flowers. They have a fleeting bloom time, two to three weeks, starting towards the end of March and the beginning of April. But once they’ve blossomed, they only stay on the branches for about a week or so.

Decorating with flowering branches adds height and drama to centerpieces. If you are planning to display them alone, make sure to use a vase that is about half the height of the branches. Prepping flowering branches is different than preparing flowers for your centerpieces. If the branches you are using are thin, you should cut a lengthwise slit at the end of the branch. Thicker branches should have their ends mashed with a hammer to help facilitate their ability to take in water.
