We should be coming into lilacs and then domestic peonies by May. Please stay tuned.
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.
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 foliage 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.
Anniversary arrangements should be considered but try to be different, red roses can be received during Valentine's day, make the Anniversary a bit more special and unique. Her favorite color, the colors from the wedding. Do you remember what it was? It was very important to her. Perhaps an arrangement based on her birth sign. Inquire and make a decision.
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.
Due to the COVID lockdowns this past year we will be experiencing low production of flowering phalaenopsis orchids during most of 2021. This is unfortunate as this is our most popular plant arrangement item. With poor management of government and loss of airlines from Asia *(the largest growing areas come from Taiwan and other Asian countries) only now are we able to start growing tiny seedlings into matrure blooming plants. The process requires about 14 months to achieve our best size and flowering capacity. We will be offering other orchids as they become available. Meanwhile stay tuned for our latest offerings and selections.
We thank you for your understanding and patience during this time. We hope that there are no future lockdowns as this will cause additional delays and production delays
