Coconut Cups with Flower
Used this at a luau party we recently hosted. We had an ice cream bar set up and used these to hold the toppings. Worked perfectly and looked lovely.

This product was very good, nice quality, and received great response from guests. We used it as a goodie holder for our table guests to take home. Wish we could have served beverages out of them but understood and were very happy with the purchase.

Fun added touch for Luau!
I bought these for my 10 year olds luau birthday party. The girls all LOVED them! One arrived cracked, but OTC sent me a new one right away. I bought some small (4 oz I believe) plastic cups and we put them inside the coconuts--even though they weren't a perfect fit--and served snow cones in them. A huge hit! They were such nice quality that we can reuse them again and again for our future luaus. Very impressed and satisfied.

Cute & Cheap. Despite flaws, they're worth the $
I bought 2 dozen of these, and I'm generally happy with them.
They're cute, and stand well without being crooked or wobbly.
Despite a few quality issues, I feel they're worth the $2 a piece, but wouldn't pay more.
Be warned though, because they are natural coconuts, the size varies GREATLY. I lined all of mine up from smallest to largest and the small one stood at 3" tall, and 2.5" wide, and the largest stood at 5" tall and 5.5" wide. Keep that in mind.
As far as quality goes, they are just "Okay". Because of the way they are packed, a few of the pedestals were broken off, but easily glued with super-glue.
The glossy finish on them is very powdery and easily gets all over your hands. I wiped them down, and because I filled them with candle wax, the heat also seemed to "Set" the finish. I imagine this is why they are not "food safe". They FEEL very dirty.
The flowers are cheap, but attractive for a party decor. Since I'm making a retail product out of mine, I decided to pull them off (They're only hot-glued on) and replace them with higher quality hibiscus flowers sold through OTC.
Overall, I will probably buy these again.

We used the cups for a dance performance. The dance manager was going to buy real coconuts and try to make them herself. I suggested your site and offered to buy them. She was thrilled with the results! I am only disappointed they are not recommended for beverages. That is why I gave them an average for quality because I would like to use them for drinks. However they are great quality otherwise!

for our luau party...we filled them with Gerber Daisies; very colorful & festive. I didn't like the polyester flowers, but they were easy to remove.
