The cherry blossoms are about to bloom in DC: does this inspire you to sneeze and duck for cover, or reenergize your home decor? One idea is to create a cherry blossom themed reading nook. Cherry blossom products are not just for the throngs of tourists flocking to DC and they're not necessarily in pink, white and green. Below are some decorating tips to bring the beauty of the tidal basin into your home... Cherry Blossom Stencils for your walls. I especially love these at Henny Donovan.
