May 1st is Lei Day in Hawaii. If you can’t get to Hawaii this year, call us! We’ll create a lei that will make you feel like you are enjoying life on an island. Umbrella drinks and sunscreen you will have to provide yourself! Warning – real Hawaiian leis will cost upwards of $300 in the other 49 states. We don’t have access to abundant and cheap orchids. Designs with other flowers are much more reasonable and who says you have to have an orchid lei to celebrate Lei Day anyway?
