"... we had hundreds of mini-carnations that we beheaded and strung into flower garlands. I also brought a bunch of clippings from my rose-scented geranium, so we added the rose-scented leaves into the leis, thus adding a strong floral fragrance to the garlands.
And kudos to (goodston) for thinking to use the unopened flower buds for
a lovely but subtle all-green lei. It was gorgeous!"
"... (latiny) had a splendid '50s tapa cloth print Hawaiian dress on. A strapless number with "bones" in the bodice so it stands up by itself even if you're not wearin' it. And a matching little bolero jacket. I was deeply impressed."
