I just created this new Kblossoms pink cherry blossom branch vase design to decorate my home for Chinese New Years which is on 2/10/13! Happy Year of the Snake! These are artificial pink cherry blossom branches that I bought at L&W Floral Design Inc. in Downtown LA at 429 S. San Pedro St, Los Angeles 90013. They have the best selection of artificial flower bouquets, vases, butterflies, lanterns, and decorations for weddings, events, and parties! I bought two bundles of the cherry blossom branches and inserted them one branch at a time into the pearl gels which holds them down inside the vase. I bought two small bags of water pearl gels from them and poured one quart of water into the vase. It takes about 5-6 hours for the tiny pearl gels to expand to the size in this picture. It's so fun watching them grow before your eyes! The more water you add, the larger they grow and they last about 3 months in the vase. I also cut off a few cherry blossom flowers and mixed them in the pearl gels to add color to it. I got the beautiful branch vase at IKEA years ago. This is the perfect size vase to decorate your house because it's tall enough to hold roses, flowers, branches and can also hold potpourri too! This is such an easy centerpiece to make for your home or office all for under $20! Hope you have enjoyed this cherry blossom blog and will try to design one too for your wedding, baby shower, or Chinese New Year!
