I purchased these for my Birthday Luau and they were a wonderful addition. I love the length of the picks and the idea of silk flowers on the tops. A nice assortment. The kids especially loved them. My only disappointment was that the flowers were not perky like they are shown in the picture, because they are stuffed into a box that is perhaps a little too small for the whole lot. I wish I had read the tip about steaming them ahead of time. I am sure this would have resolved this small disappointment. The quantity was way more than I needed for my small party, so it would be nice if this was also offered in a smaller quantity.

We used these picks for our fresh fruit and veggie platters at our at-home-reception. Our party was luau themed, but we definitely did not want to go the cheesy route and it is hard to distinguish that fine line with this theme. These picks added color and that extra "pop" the appetizers needed. You can't go wrong with the price, either! Highly recommend, A+!

I used these pics for my chocolate fountain. I thought they might be a little short for this purpose but they worked great!

VERY VERY NICE-A WINNER!!!
We hosted a international fair for our church's missions conference. I served these as fresh fruit kabobs. Couldn't make them fast enough - went very fast and presentation was a huge plus. Our booth won. Kudos to those who posted about steaming the flowers. I did the whole batch in less than 5 minutes and it made an amazing difference - the flowers almost bloomed in front of my eyes. They were so pretty it was hard to part with them. I was very happy with my purchase. They were very colorful and good variety.

these were great at a my luau party with a chocolate fountain. Not as long as traditional bamboo skewers but worked just as well. The flowers were brightly colored and were higher quality than I anticipated.

Luau Must Have
Perfect detailed touch to serve fruit at our Aloha themed pool party. These are long picks so you can add to tall glass with fruit and use as a pick or even use as a small fruit skewer kabob.

Great looking picks. Haven't used them yet, but they can be used in a variety of ways.

Take them out of the bag and separate the pedals which does take extra time, but it's worth it.

A little work turned my snack table into a field of flowers
These pretty fabric flowers on little skewers arrived tightly packed in a smallish box. The flowers looked pretty scrawny right out of the box. However, with a little work they looked spectacular. The night before my event I made up a sink of hot water, took out a hand-ful of the skewers at a time, held them flower-side down, and brifely swooshed them around in the hot water. Then I shook them out, and stuck them into a Styrofoam block in clumps. When I had rinsed them all, I used my hair dryer to fluff and dry them. The whole process probably took around 30-40 minutes, and the results were fantastic. I left them in the Styrofoam over night to finish drying, and bagged them loosely packed into plastic bags for transport to my event. The wooden skewers were perfect for my appetizers, and all the flowers were fantastically decorative. I was extremely happy with this product and will order more.
