Tropical Flower Arrangement DIY: Pumehana “Warm Hearted” Assortment

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 Pumehana “Warm Hearted” 12 stem assortment idea, you will need:

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

Heartwarming fresh flowers from Hawaii.  This assortment can be arranged both tall and wide with heliconia, birds of paradise and Maui protea.  Note that if birds of paradise are not available we will substitute tropic fleur heliconia instead.

  • Begin with the leaves – bend the ti leaves gently back.  Secure with rubber bands if necessary.
  • Display 2 hala leaves upright.  Cut one hala leaf in 4 smaller pieces.  Make a chevron (v-shaped) cut at the ends of the shorter leaves.
  • and then add the tallest upright heliconia.
  • Surround it with leucodendron Safari Sunset.
  • Cut the pincushion protea stems short and use around the base.
  • Finally add the birds of paradise and tropic fleur heliconia to complete the arrangement.

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