Hawaiian weddings; the words themselves conjure up a romantic ceremony at water’s edge surrounded by swaying palms, loved ones and perhaps a curious sea bird or two. Hawaiian favours of this happy occasion can easily take their cue from the unique culture of these magic islands.
Macadamia nuts are an island treat not to be missed and make wonderful Hawaiian favors. Available smothered in milk or dark chocolate or even enrobed in buttery, creamy caramel these flavour rich, crunchy wonders are truly smiles in a box.
Koa wood items make perfect Hawaiian favours. Carved into shapes such as turtles, ukuleles, even miniature canoe paddles, the gently whorled wood is pleasing to both the eye and to the touch. Small koa bowls can even be used as part of a presentation of those luscious macadamia nuts. After all, the nuts won’t last that long, but the koa bowls make Hawaiian favours that can be cherished for a lifetime.
Perhaps a CD of one of the most hauntingly romantic songs of Hawaii would make your list of Hawaiian favors.
Translated into English in 1958, the “Hawaiian Wedding Song” was made memorable by Elvis Presley in “Blue Hawaii” and to this day is the most requested tune at weddings and vow renewal ceremonies.
Let us not forget one of the most signature symbols of Hawaii, the lei.
Traditionally given with a kiss, these delicate circlets of fragrant blossoms even have their own holiday, May 1st, or Lei Day. A symbol of love and aloha, what better Hawaiian favours could there be than a tender reminder of vows taken in paradise?
Keepsake leis can be found created from delicate shells, colourful feathers and even polished kukui, or candlenuts. It is also possible to find leis made from tiny packets of macadamia nuts or alternating single serve bottles of gin and vermouth. Martini lei anyone?
