As a business, we often get asked "how did you come up with your business name?"
As it's April, which is the typically month of the cherry blossom, it's time to tell you a little about the origin of our business name!
Cherry blossom, or "Sakura' in Japan, is a symbolic flower in Spring. It represents the time of optimism and renewal. Between the end of March and early April in Japan, families gather under flowering cherry blossom trees in a long-standing tradition called hanami. In this ceremony, also known as the cherry blossom festival, the Japanese enjoy food, songs, drink, and companionship, appreciating the ephemeral beauty of these flowers. Cherry blossom festivals are a time to regain our perspective on life, and to make a promise not to take the good things in our lives for granted.The brief lifespan of the cherry blossom is a reminder that a human's life is short and beautiful, so we should live life to the full.
Ever since I was a young girl, I've been fascinated by blossom trees. Theres nothing more beautiful than seeing the bloom of Spring, and the burst of pastel pink on the trees. In fact, 3 generations of our family have had blossom trees in their garden, so you could say our love for blossom runs in the family! To me, blossom represents family and celebration, and appreciating the time we spend together. It represents the transformation and growth into something beautiful. .
The tradition of Cherry blossom is all about transformation, celebration and appreciation. As a brand, that's what Blush & Blossom Events represents. We transform your wedding or event from an idea into a beautiful, blossoming reality, whilst holding your traditions, values and desires close to our hearts.
