Paper Sakura (Cherry Blossoms)
I HAVE to thank my mom. When I decided I wanted delicate paper cherry blossoms scattered around the center of each reception table I was prepared to cut all of those flowers with specialty paper punches myself. But then my mom kindly volunteered for the job! Being no dummy I sent her the punches and stacks of light and fuchsia pink vellum.
She made hundreds upon hundreds of them for me. Possibly even thousands. And not only did she cut them... She even hand folded about a third of them to create some extra dimension in some of the blossoms. Then she divided them up into plastic bags and sent them back to me.
They looked truly gorgeous on the table and were even more special because my mom made them. I saved as many as I could and plan to put them in a beautiful glass container as a keepsake.
To complete the look I scattered some tiny origami cranes around the table as well.
