Honor Your Loved Ones with Tropical Flowers

Recently, we were asked to provide a large tropical arrangement for a memorial service.  We have done this on previous occasions also, but as Robyn delivered them to the church last week, she realized how stately the flowers appeared in a spiritual setting.  There were many birds of paradise, ginger, heleconia and orchids which stood so tall in a large glass vase. The tropical colors were very vibrant under the spotlights in the church, and as the mourners passed by, the flowers caught their attention and contributed to the honoring of the deceased.  Because the stems of the ginger and birds of paradise, in particular, are so long when cut in Hilo, we recommend them for any occasion to make a significant and eye-catching creation.

New Artwork – Beautiful Blown Glass

The latest artwork to appear at Island Home and Garden comes from Los Osos.  Rod Baker is an independent glass artist, and we have a nice display of his colored blown glass ‘ornaments’ shaped as starfish, hearts and flowers.  Every piece is hand-crafted, and they are remarkable for their vibrant colors and patterns. The pieces are placed throughout the store, and in a glass cabinet near the window which shows off their individual coloring. Drop by and take a look! Share...

New Island Essence Organics Products!

We received a new shipment of lotions, shampoos and conditioners, and body oil from the Island Essence Organics Company. These are produced and shipped directly from Maui, and the last order we displayed was very popular. The fragrances come in either Plumeria, Pikake, or Passionfruit Lime, and the body oil is derived from kukui nuts. The lotions in particular are very silky and long lasting once applied, and many of our customers will welcome the return of the kukui nut oil! Share...
