Our Blossom Fantasia placemat is a pattern that takes a modern decoupage approach to the ancient tradition of hand painted plum and cherry blossom painting. The significance of the cherry blossom tree in Japanese culture goes back hundreds of years. The cherry blossom represents the fragility and the beauty of life. It’s a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly beautiful but that it is also tragically short. When the cherry blossom trees bloom for a short time each year in brilliant force, they serve as a visual reminder of how precious and how precarious life is.  A hummingbird buzzes near the blossoms. The overall effect is pure romance and one that is very fitting for special occasions.
