Aloha Island Lei sent me this beautiful Butterfly Orchid Lei to try! It arrived right before Mother's Day (lovely timing!). It was packaged with a cold pack that was still cold even though it was 86 degrees outside that day. I followed the directions for keeping it fresh (in a bag, in the fridge) and it stayed beautiful more than 10 days. I had a lot of fun wearing it to a dance party. Everyone was very interested in the lei. It was surprisingly comfortable to wear and I felt very special! I could see giving it to honor mothers, birthdays, graduations. For a different look they offer a Kukui Nut Lei.
Receiving this lei was fun also because I have a sister living in Hawaii and my mother, aunt, and grandparents used to live there too. It brought back fond memories for them.
I am inspired to sew my beautiful Hawaiian fabric now.
Thank you Aloha Island Lei!
