If you are looking for a reason for flowers or you have long since given up on hints to your significant other that getting lei'd isn't only for special occasions, today is the day to put that flush of color back into your day!
Watanabe Floral is right off Nimitz Highway and carries all the flora you could ask for in Hawaii. From a variety of Lei for the airport greeting to commemoration and celebration, they carry the delicate to intricate to have you properly lei'd!
Their floral arrangements fit every budget and every occasion. I went in to see about a bouquet for my Lady, and was overwhelmed with the variety of Hawaiian flora for business and event worthy to a personal gesture.
I picked out a couple bargain basement roses that didn't make the cut for the more stately displays, but wanted to incorporate some island love. Tuyet, was the woman I asked for help. She suggested that I hold my roses up against other flowers to see how they pair. Being an eclectic sort, I paired them with a Hawaiian variety cluster of birds of paradise, ginger, a sunflower for good measure, (by helpful suggestion of another kind employee) and others I haven't defined yet.
Customer service was open and inviting, but not pushy.
(Pro Tip on customer service: if you are an open and kind customer, chances are good that you will be treated in kind. There is no excuse for being rude.)
I was fortunate enough to be allowed a photo of Tuyet and Cory who is one of the floral designers of some of their masterful creations. Mahalo for such exemplary service.
