During summer, my husband and I enjoy delicious retreats at our Hawaiian home away from home. To create a tropical feeling, inside as well as outside, I like to use exotic plants for table centerpieces and in floral arrangements around the house. While the selection of exotic plants may be more extensive in tropical locales, most nurseries, farmer’s markets, and even local grocers carry exotic foliage. So get creative and personalize your summer arrangements with your favorite cuttings! For inspiration, visit this Teleflora site and/or Google “Tropical Plants and Flowers” images for ideas.
