Pikake Bloom

The web only let me post the aroma of this heavenly fragrance of pikake that the rest of the world call jasmine.  Really, if you live in Hawaii, go and look around your neighborhood for a pikake bush and just stand next to it under the evening trade breeze that swirl its fragrance into the air. Take a whiff, and now that’s paradise.

Crown Flowers

Crown flowers come in off white and lavender in color. Flowers bloom year round and the tree is relatively small in size and very low maintenance. Crown flower lei are one of those quiet and elegant lei. To add a little splash, one may want to twisted it with a strand of roses, pikake or pakalana lei.

Lei vs. arm bouquet

Well, sure we are in Hawaii and we should get lei.  But sometimes it is kind of fun to get an arm bouquet.  No, I don’t mean a dozen roses from the grocery store.  I mean a really nicely arranged arm bouquet with nice wrapping and a big bow, the type you would get at a pageant or at the end of a recital.  So, try it, but cooridnate with each other, because she is only got two arms.

Congrat to the grads

Lei giving (piling) is a common a scene at graduations.  Consider lei with big visual impact such as the single orchids, carnation, and plumeria that are big in size and bright in color. Of course price are very reasonable for the tuberose, heea, sea grapes and ti-leaves lei but with less visual impact.  Then again, it is not about visual impact with lei giving.  It’s about sharing the aloha and giving congratulation.  Have fun at the graduation.  Take plenty pictures, okay.
