Mele Kalikimaka

is the Hawaiian way to say Merry Christmas and with the cold snap of weather we have experienced this week it makes us wish we were in a warm tropical paradise without a care in the world. Since not all of us are fortunate enough to be in Hawaii we decided to bring a little Mele Kalikimaka to the DV lobby this week!

Fanciful Phalaenopsis orchids seem to dance over one another and appear as if they are competing for the attention of passersby and beckon them to day dream about sunshine and tropical birds whispering in the distance. Lemon Cyprus trees tie in a fresh bright green but at the same time remind you of winter with their evergreen nature, to bring their color down we incorporated umbrella fern to draw the color throughout the design and also tie in the tropical forest feel.

The rich textures of sheet moss and Spanish moss adorn 4’ birch logs that lay on their side to create a bed for all of the plants to rest upon and help to make the plants look as if they are effortlessly growing out of the ground. Mitsumata branches supply us with the height variance the design craves and also supplied some movement to help the eye move effortlessly throughout the design. Complimentary floral touches were added to incorporate a truly unique statement piece, kale and Tibet roses were accented with white heather and eriostemon to evoke a completely unique holiday experience.

A design like this will have you singing Mele Kalikimaka all season long!
