Leis For All Occasions - Email Us For Ordering

The Hawaiian Islands have always been known for their open-armed friendliness, welcoming guests with garlands~necklaces made of beautiful fresh flowers, which are bestowed on the recipient with a traditional kiss and speaks of the island philosophy of kindness and love. Leis represent Aloha (love) and a wish for luck.

It is said that you will experience good luck by passing your lei on to someone in return. Visitors leaving the Islands, toss their leis onto the harbor waters. The leis eventually drift to shore symbolizing that the visitor will someday return, thus the romance and mystique of Hawai'i. You can add that romance to your special occasion, wedding or function by adding or presenting a lei.

I have been making fresh flower leis by hand, fashioned with aloha for many years. You too can enjoy the fragrance and beauty of the islands at your next special function or occasion, or just to say "I love you" to your favorite huapala. Fresh tropical orchids, available in Pheonix Arizona, ready to be made into your special arrangement or lei, for your wedding, graduation birthday or anniversary.

The following photos are examples of the exquisite fresh floral leis available by contacting me at the bottom of this page~ "Mahalo, Bettyjean & Manny Fernandez.
