Cherry Blossoms on this is glamorous
As college students in Washington, DC, we always looked forward to this time of year when the cherry trees that line the Tidal Basin begin to bloom. What starts off as tiny buds on these historic trees (a gift from Japan in 1912) soon turns into an explosion of pale pink and white blossoms, a perfect celebration of spring. Even with all the snow storms this winter, the peak bloom period is predicted to be from April 1st to April 4th so plan your trip soon! But in case you miss the real deal, there are always these beautiful cherry blossom accessories to help ring in spring.

Next to breakfast in bed and a lazy day reading by the fire, one of our favorite ways to start the new year is by filling in the pages of a pretty calendar. This year, we think Snow & Graham‘s designs are a perfect way to keep track of special dates and daily appointments. Since 1998, Ebony Snow Chafey, owner of this Chicago-based letterpress company, has created modern yet whimsical paper novelties.

Recently profiled in the “Inspire Me” column of Tradional Home for their cheerful wrapping paper, Snow & Graham also creates memorable note cards and stationery. The company’s signature style of combining contemporary designs with supple papers and the fine art of letterpress printing is wonderfully feminine yet bold.
