Aloha Fun! How to Make and Sell Leis Wherever You Are
You don’t have to be Hawaiian or in Hawaii to celebrate with fresh flower leis.
Lei giving is a great way to honor individuals anywhere. Birthdays, graduations, dances, parties, weddings, celebrations, presentations and even an office promotion can be considered lei-worthy. They are often given to couples heading for a Pacific Island honeymoon.
Promoting leis in your business for upcoming summer events, outdoor parties, luaus and rehearsal dinners is a good way to offer a unique product that can increase seasonal business.
What are the two main techniques for making leis? Which flowers and materials can be used? For what events are leis appropriate? When should you make your own and when should you buy in bulk?
For help with the answers, I spoke with Debbi Barrett-Holt AIFD of Honolulu, who has a lifetime of lei experience including designing a lei for the president.
