We’re suckers for a Washington cherry blossom-themed wedding, so we’re thrilled about the Cherry Blossom Centennial stamp, which recently debuted as part of the US Postal Service’s 2012 collection. The stamp, which features an illustration by artist Paul Rogers, celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Tidal Basin’s flowering trees. It’s bright, cheery, and would be perfect envelope décor for a wedding invitation or save-the-date—and we love that it’s panoramic instead of a standard square. The Cherry Blossom Centennial stamp will be available in early 2012; visit Beyond the Perf (the US Postal Service's news site) to view the rest of the new stamps.
