If you, like I, are an avid reader of reunion narratives in the Punahou Bulletin you have probably not read much, if anything, about floral decorations. After all, the action is in describing who came, what they had to say, and where they came from. But a Punahou74 reunion is not your typical reunion and its floral decorations not your typical floral decorations.
While many enjoyed the beauty of a Friday night party at the Morgans’ home, they may not have consciously realized that a large part of the evening’s loveliness was due to the fresh floral decorations that were present in lavish proportions.
With the selection of a private home, the need for floral decorations expanded the typical need for tabletop arrangements and required arrays throughout the party landscape both inside and outside of the facility. Putting such an effort together required hours spent cutting, ordering, sourcing, cleaning, securing, and arranging the blooms. The result was a stunning presentation that enhanced the gracious Hawaiian feel of the historic Morgan manse while enhancing the party atmosphere.
Leading the decoration effort was Babs Miyano Young. Putting her artistic training to superb use, she selected from heliconia, agapanthus, anthurium, orchid, ferns, and dozens of other tropical beauties to good use in designing a floral wonderland.
Two days would be spent working on this labor of true love … and that’s just for the arrangement part. Sourcing the blooms and greens was another matter entirely.
