Kula Protea

We just got some freshly cut protea from Kula, upcountry Maui. We are so proud of our friend lugged these beauties over to Honolulu for us. Kudos to her dad who got up early on Sunday for these cuttings and packing.  Thank  you.  Thank you.

Butterflies and our crown flower trees

Our crown flower trees are now bare with hardly much leaves left.  Leaves (are) were munched by butterfly caterpillars for the last month and a half. It is a devastated sight from a crown flower farmer or a home owner perspective. But to caterpillars, fatten by every inch of leaves is a must, in order to get ready for coconing, then becoming butterflies.  We put our blinders on and let the caterpillars munch on. We welcome the devastation, knowing that there will be more butterflies for the world.  The tree will be refilled with leaves again. It will be soon be spring, summer, fall, then again butterflis return and lay their eggs.

Flower Arrangement Placement

Flower arrangement placement do make a difference on how an arrangement will be perceived. For short arrangements, find a spot in the house where you would view the arrangement from above.  Places such as the dinner table,  coffee table, or night stands.  Avoid placing them high above view.  Placing arrangement in places  such as the fireplace mantel or bar ledge would make the arrangement perceived as less full.  See sample photos below.

Double Trees, double Christmas trees

We got two trees for Christmas, one for home and one for the shop.  At the flower shop we use the leave branches to  fragrant and green up the Christmas arrangements.  At Sweet Blossoms Hawaii, we wish you all a merry and stress-less Christmas.

Happy Labor Day

Sweet Blossoms Hawaii will be closed to celebrate Labor Day.  It is also our 7th anniversary day.  Imagine that, seven year ago, we had our grand opening on Labor Day.  The next day, our official first day of business, we had only one walk-in customer. He bought a single stem of flower. Thank you all for your support for the past many years. Happy Labor Day.
