Tropical Flower Arrangement DIY: Punahele “The Favorite” Assortment

tropical flowers for Mother's Day

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 Punahele “The Favorite” 12 stem assortment idea, you will need:

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

Punahele means ‘Favorite’ and this is one of our favorites.   Purple arc tulip anthuriums join golden heliconia and pincushion protea.  Red anthurium add a bright dash of color.  Send this to someone special to let them know they are your favorite friend or loved one.

  • Start with the ti leaves across the back as shown.
  • Add one ti leaf at a lower profile in the front.
  • Add the hala leaves.  One or two can be gently bent as shown.
  • Arrange the three tall heliconia.
  • Add one pincushion near the center.
  • Cut two pincushions short and place on either side as shown.
  • Add one purple arc near the back center.
  • Cut the anthurium to different heights to fill more space in the front.
  • Finish with the 2 purple arcs; cut short to fill where needed.


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