The delicate shade of these cherry blossom earrings is the same soft pink of the Japanese Sakura blossom. Every spring Japanese Hanami festivals celebrating the beauty and transitory nature of the sakura bring large numbers of people outside, as in Washington, D.C., with the Cherry Blossom Festival. Celebrate a little bit of spring with us, with these delightful post earrings. The pretty blooms will remind the wearer of the hope of spring, at any time of year.
Spring in Washington celebrates the cherry trees and their beautiful pink and white flowers that bloom in late March. Every year, Cherry Blossom Festival performers put on a colorful show right in front of the National Archives steps. The majority of the trees are located near the Tidal Basin, where they are most popularly viewed. The Japanese cherry trees were a gift from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo City to the city of Washington on March 27, 1912. The National Archives holds many records related to the United States' relationship with Japan.
