Meaning Behind Lei’s
The gift of a flower lei at graduation ceremonies originated on the Hawaiian Islands, many years ago. This tradition has since spread throughout the pacific and to many parts of the United States. These lei’s are the perfect way to show your support, well wishes, admiration and love to your special graduate. Flower leis often show off school colors. These colors celebrate the time spent at school as well as being a sign of good luck in upcoming ventures.
Giving a Lei as a Gift
Gifting a flower lei to a graduate is a popular way to show your support and love for them on their special day. The most common lei is made from dendrobium orchid flowers. Other popular lei varieties include items such as carnations, ti leaves, wood beads and even cash money. These beautiful lei’s will hang from their neck as they walk on stage and receive their degree. It will remind them of how much hard work they had to put in, to get where they are.
Decorating Your Graduation Cap
For some, it has become a necessity to do everything you can to create one of a kind graduation caps. Many students pride themselves on having unique graduation caps that feature fun images or pun filled messages. Although not all students will take the time to bedazzle their cap, the ones who do definitely have fun with it.
Wholesale Flowers & Supplies has everything you need to make your graduation a memorable one. We will have pre-made flower lei’s available for the next few weeks. We also sell our Dendrobium orchids online, if you’re not able to make it down to San Diego. All you need is a few bunches of orchids, a roll of fishing line and a YouTube “how to” video!
