Cultivate the essence of spring indoors and out with cheerful cherry blossom-infused décor
With the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival underway throughout the month of April, it’s time to celebrate and enjoy one of spring’s most beautiful symbols: the Japanese ornamental cherry tree.
Take a stroll through one of hundreds of sites in and around Vancouver featuring the pink blossoming trees, which were generously gifted to the City of Vancouver from Japan in the 1930s.
Your enjoyment of the pretty blossoms doesn’t have to end there – cherry tree-adorned home décor items let you bring the blossoms inside for year-round enjoyment.
Here’s a bouquet of our top picks.

If pink isn’t your style, opt for something more subtle like these blue Nobu Euro shams and square cushions from Lowe’s, or this earth-tone embroidered cherry blossom comforter set from Sears.

All of these items are available at Bed, Bath & Beyond.
