Father’s Day Preparations

June 17th, 2011

Vince and I, being absent from our family during the upcoming Father’s Day holiday, decided to extend our Aloha hospitality to an elderly couple whose family lives on the mainland.

With this in mind, my contribution to the dinner festivities included dessert and all the details for a fantastic table setting. I wondered, What would make a Hawaiian Holiday dinner table beautiful? Of course, flowers! Needless to say, this led to my next adventure: finding a colorful floral presentation! Although, you might be thinking, No problem, the Island is covered with an abundance of beautiful foliage. Just go pick some. This is a definite NO NO! There is an unspoken understanding that one must NEVER remove items of nature from the Islands. This could displease the past spirits that still inhabit the Islands.

With that in mind, I have decided to interview three florists that have lived in Maui for over 20 years. Each one recommended by locals and all advertised by word of mouth. Along with some information I found (available only at the local Lahaina Library), I will provide some history in my following blog. Pictures of the winning floral table spread will be posted! Stay tuned!
