Hawaiian Luau Family


Had a set luau lights go bad and was bummed about throwing away the light covers. After some thought came up with this fun creation.

Drought Smart Plants reply:
Jay, that is priceless – good for you. I can imagine a whole garden filled with Hawaiian themed funky planters. Very fun, and unique.

What I want to know is what kind of soil mix you’ve used, and also more about the plant selection. How often do you water?

Polynesian Influence
by: Florabundance

I’m loving the Polynesian influence – do you have these indoors or outside? It makes me want to go to the beach!

I had it indoors for about a week but now I have it outdoors.

I’m sure they get asked “Who’s your stylist?”

Love the Tiki Gods with crazy hairdoos! Makes me want to go buy tiki lights and break them on purpose so I can try my own! Lorraine

This is sooooo adorable! I love it & wish I had some broken lights just like them! 🙂

I read the description and was quite dubious, clinked the link and was blown away! I am sure if some interior designer sees these you will be getting emails to sell so some fashionista or celebrity can have this planter.

So the big question is, where did you get your tiki head lights, and how can I get some?

I think this is unique and too cute. I think you should have won! By far, my favorite.

Found them on EBay

I saw this and wanted to make one so bad! It took years to finally find the same lights. I made it and I love it! I’m going to sell the other ones in my area.

Your comment came as a great surprise. I made my Tiki family 9 years ago and to get a comment in 2021 was great! I’m glad you did not give up on finding the light set. Finally…. my Tiki family has relatives.
