The Nation’s Greatest Springtime Celebration

By: Deborah Miller

LandDesign stepped into spring this year as Presenting Sponsor for the National Cherry Blossom Festival‘s premiere fundraising event. The Cherry Blossom Festival engages and entertains more than 1.5 million people each year. In the midst of thousands of beautiful cherry blossom trees, the three-week, citywide event schedule is anchored by four weekends with premiere programming and is a major media focus for the region. Most events are family-friendly and free and open to the public, ranging in size from very large to intimate.


This year’s theme, Celebrating Nature, focused on the importance of parks and gardens and the underlying importance to our communities. This theme resonated well within LandDesign and we committed our resources in the promotion of the event through design and sponsorship. As Presenting Sponsors for the Pink Tie Party, this fundraising event is primarily to ensure that the celebration and numerous events throughout the city remain free of charge the visitors to enjoy the nation’s springtime event.


LandDesign committed to sponsor this event by contributing its design expertise to the event in creating a memorable and meaningful experience for the 800+ guests. The guests at the Pink Tie includes the leaders of our region and supporters of the Cherry Blossom’s ever-reaching missions to our community and beyond. The National Cherry Blossom Festival organization advances the content, quality and creativity of the country’s greatest and most vibrant springtime celebration.  It is equally committed to delivering real economic, cultural, environmental, and social benefits to the local, regional, national, and international communities and stakeholders it serves.


Our firm’s ambitious design for the event was supported by numerous friends of the firm providing underwriting sponsorship for the event. Their contributions made possible to further support the community effort which is central to the Festival’s mission:

The Festival strives to enrich the lives of those it touches by coordinating, producing, and supporting creative and diverse activities that promote:

– Natural beauty and the environment

– Traditional and contemporary arts and culture

– Community spirit and youth education


This truly was a collaborative of many and we should all be so proud to have shone yet another big light of LandDesign on the scene!
