The Japanese Instagrammer known simply as Sawa is like many folks—she starts her day with a good cup of coffee. But for her, it’s more than just a nice dose of caffeine. Each hot beverage provides an opportunity to create a beautiful work of art. In her ongoing series called La Fee De Fleur, Sawa arranges fresh and dried flowers around the cup in an eye-pleasing crescent shape. Afterwards, she documents the ephemeral coffee art and shares it online, where it’s sure to perk you up with its exquisite colors and textures.
The point of La Fee De Fleur is simple but sweet—it’s a visual respite while you’re taking in the morning news. With each message, Sawa offers an optimistic sentiment, from wishing her followers a “Happy Friday” to start their weekend, as well as a “Happy new week,” on Mondays.
This boost of positivity and gorgeous blooms are a welcome addition to anyone’s social media feed. In a time that seems topsy-turvy, knowing that you’ve got a good cup of coffee and La Fee De Fleur makes it all right in the world—even if it’s just for a moment.
