Rainforest by Design


Our tropical arrangements incorporate many unique and novel flower and foliage varieties. many exclusive to Rainforest and can only be seen in a Rainforest arrangement. Tropical flowers tend to last longer and provide the best of what Hawaii has to offer. Our tropical arrangements incorporate unique vases with foliage lining, interesting and refreshing design styles and a look that is distinctly Rainforest. Request upright or centerpiece.

Mainland Vase Mixed

Our mainland arrangements are made with seasonal and unique flowers. We avoid carnations, pompoms, baby's breath, and are made with the most interesting varieties available. We like unique fillers, hydrangeas, garden and Ecuadorian roses, and for higher prices, incorporate peonies, flowering branches, etc. Selection varies seasonally and during the week. We usually like to arrange them in a vase but we can also make these centerpiece style incorporating a lower profile look. Specify pastel, bright, dark mixed monochrome or other specifics  


The term Modern is a vague term as it combines both mainland and local tropical flowers. Often combined in unique formats and containers, clear glass cubes or cylinders lined with interesting foliages and materials. We can combine some plant materials, succulents and air plants are favorites as are pods, branches and sticks, etc. To make these pieces require a little more time and planning and unless we have some already on hand, it is best pre-ordered at least a day in advance. 


Our Specialty arrangements vary seasonally and by occasion. Specialty can be something like an all - green arrangement for Dt. Patrick's Day March 17.

Specialty also covers flowers for a 25th/Silver Anniversary, or 50th/Golden Anniversary.  The celebration of a special birthday (i.e Yakudoshi) are examples of Specialty arrangements. Inquire by email for suggestions or ideas. Please provide adequate time for inquiries as we may not be able to respond for a same day order request.  Asian themed arrangements also fall under this heading style.

Potted Live Orchids

Our potted orchids are one of our most popular items for almost any occasion. They are long lasting, easily cared for arrangements. They come with instructions for care and are potted in such a way that it can withstand neglect and over attentiveness. Our stock and selection varies, our best selection is earlier in the week and we might even be able to make specific requests providing we have enough stock on hand. For deliveries, we suggest a 2-3 plant per pot minimum. We strive to send out plants with the most budded materials possible so the delivered piece may appear few flowered, what ensues and unfolds is a long lasting memorable display that will provide much thanks from the recipients over time. Normal life is about 3 months with adequate care


Sometimes we get requests for flower designs all in one color but with a variety of flower types. These are not necessarily all white wedding-funeral pieces but can be for a specific look or function. These all solid color forms do require some planning and unless we have a good stock on hand, we do duggest that you pre-order them at least a day in advance.

About Us

What is Rainforest

The name Rainforest was chosen for its reminiscent of the rain forest where life cycles and recycles. What a marvelous plan to create such a business that can mimic that same principle. Thus the name Rainforest was chosen.  We have since embodied our philosophy with ethical growing of plants that do not use excessive chemicals (which also harm our wildlife) or employed by child laborers (you’d be surprised what you may buy from your grocery store comes from regions of highest child labor infractions) or enslaves indigenous peoples or reducing their agricultural lands to fill quotas required by mega wholesalers, distributors, brokerage houses. 

We borrow ideas of many indigenous lands where people have worked with their ecology, living as partners for life. We also strive for this partnership in the way we do our business. 

One of our main goals is to enrich the heritage culture of our ancestors in today’s hectic lifestyle.  Whether you’re Asian, European, Polynesian, African, etc,  a collective philosophy of giving back to nature, “take the best of life and always pass that along,” ideal is what we try to evoke in everything we do. 

Flowers is such an enriching and endearing aspect of our culture. It should be done with finesse and license to awaken our spirits, our minds and our hearts. If these goals are not achieved, then the art of flower design has nothing to offer. We always look ahead, never going back. The art of flower design goes back many centuries. Simply it is a way to express oneself using flowers as the media. The idea is simple, but what it achieves cannot be replaced with any other media that can have such a profound effect on us.  Like a rain forest, we are also evolving foward.

Our website itself is an evolving process. We incorporate  zodiac signs in our use of flowers and numbers. Flower selections in our arrangements evolve around our strong involvement with horoscope and astrological influences. We are also governed by the sun, moon and its relationship with Earth. We follow numerological and base our philosophies on Feng Shui and other ancient practices. We would like to keep this rhythm in motion in everything we do. Much thought goes into the making of an arrangement at Rainforest.

Rainforest, the Store

  1. Prompt service, helpful staff. We get it. You need to get in, get your stuff and then get back on the road. We provide complimentary flower trays to support safe transport of your arrangements and small plants.  If you’re bringing in your own vases to have filled, please note that arranging flowers is not part of the cut flower price tag.
  2. We strive to maintain a fresh inventory of flower arrangements ready for you. We welcome advanced orders ($50 minimum please) and will have them ready for you to pick up, already boxed in a safely design tray or box composed from recycled boxes, packing media, etc. Otherwise you may stop in and see what is available on a first come first served basis.
  3. When you arrive at Rainforest. We know that you are here because you are looking for something extra special and unique. While we can make an arrangement for a baby boy new arrival, we would  prefer that you pre-order these as they will not be part of our standard inventory for something with blue flowers.
  4. We are thoughtful in making sure what you buy is environmentally correct. Our arrangement trays are made from recycled boxes, our leis are wrapped in ti leaves. Even a single rose is individually or group wrapped in ti leaves! Otherwise flowers are wrapped in recycled white paper.
  5. Enclosure cards and envelopes are complimentary with minimum purchase. We also provide water tubes, cotton water packs, flower food when you purchase flowers that require these. These items are complimentary when they are self served. They are located on your way out.
  6. We accept all major credit cards and cash. However, we do not accept checks unless approved or on account.
