A first for me this weekend was the chance to make a lei. At the Sunset Celebration Weekend, Hawaiian Airlines sponsored a make-your-own-lei booth, which was so much fun! As we stood at the tables with our long lei needles, women dumped baskets and baskets full of beautiful purple orchids down the middle of the tables to keep our supply fresh.
When we got home, both Hubbs and my flowers got un-strung into a big jar full of water so that we could enjoy them for a little longer. (Day-old leis just don’t have that same “wow” factor…)
