When you order a tropical assortment from With Our Aloha, remember they do not come pre-arranged. The stems are delicately packed at the source, and rush shipped to your door to ensure you receive the freshest flowers possible. We have provided a tropical flower arrangement DIY that walks you through a “suggested” design below, but the beautiful possibilities are endless.

For this Makamae “Precious” 12 stem assortment idea, you will need:

  • 1 shallow vase
  • 1 block of floral foam
  • garden shears
  • scissors
  • rubber bands are also helpful sometimes

Makamae means ‘Precious’ in Hawaiian.  This tropical flower assortment will tell someone how precious they are to you.  This is a medium height arrangement using pincushion protea and Big Island orchids. The monstera leaves will add width.

  • Begin with the 3 monstera leaves pointing outward from the base.
  • Add a hala leaf in the center and two pincushions.  One pincushion in the front can be cut shorter.
  • Continue adding pincushions and hala leaves.  A hala leave can be gently bent back for effect.
  • Fill out empty space with the orchid sprays.  Some sprays can be cut lower or in half as needed.

This is our Hawaiian Flowers of the Month selection for January.
