The frivolity lasted until the final cherry blossom petal fell. In addition to her performance, Enpheline would prepare honeyed tea and freshly picked fruit for the fairies. Enjoying her hospitality, they would play and dance under the cherry tree, filling the air with laughter. Then, on the final day of the banquet, the fairies would grant her a crown made flowers, symbolizing their bestowal of fortune until the next year.
