The experience was amazing. The flowers were fresh and smelled good. The greeter was sweet and friendly and even offered to take our photo. Only one negative was my daughters name was spelt wrong so that stung a bit. Otherwise, would definitely use again. Highly recommend.

This was a gift for my family and they were thrilled to receive the lei greeting. It has been a long time tradition to welcome them with leis. This year is the first time in 21 years that we have been unable to be there to welcome them. I was happy that I could still give them the leis, especially since our daughter had been very ill and almost didn't make the trip which was actually last year's trip that had been cancelled due to the pandemic. My disappointment was that I ordered a tuberose lei for my daughter and a plumeria was substituted. Tanya Nelson
