Tis the season for holiday decor and DIY gifts to share this winter, especially if you're seeking some handmade goodies! This December, Paiko is offering a plethora of holiday workshops for your seasonal inspiration that we can't wait to share with you. Want to have the best decked door on your block? Then maybe the Tillandsia Holiday Wreath workshop is for you. Attending the SALT Holiday Fair? Check out our Tillandsia Snowglobe class at Kaka'ako Agora. Curious about what a Kokedama is? We'll teach you at the Christmas Kokedama workshop. Hosting a Holiday party? Haku lei guru, Ann Kadowaki will kick start your Hawaiian Table Swag inspiration.

These classes compose a tight knit network of like-minded nature-loving individuals who want to be involved and spark creativity in their community. Not only are these classes educational but they're relaxing and productively stimulating.  A welcoming environment for pau hana play, pre-party girls night, or a date with your favorite person. Each class is taught by either Paiko's very own Tamara Rigney, or other respected activists in the Hawaiian horticulture community.

Interested? Check out our calendar for additional information on each workshop and to save a spot!

Paiko In Full Swing aka 'A Synopsis of Our First Fifty Eight Days'

Paiko Hawaii Honolulu Wow, where have the past 58 days gone? It's hard to believe that Paiko has been open for business that long. So much has happened and yet, there is still so much more to do! A few things are for certain, Tamara and I have been loving spending our days in the shop, chatting with our customers, laughing and finding our inner flower humor, learning oh so very much and finding out how little sleep we actually need to function.

On Tuesday December 12th we invited a few friends, family and neighbors to the shop to help us celebrate the opening of our doors. We definitely felt the love and were touched by all the support we received from our dear friends, old and new.

Not long after we opened, the Rogue Christmas Honolulu Night Market took place and Paiko stayed open late to join in the festivities. We had yummy Christmas snacks and wassel in the shop along with leaf printing on Kraft paper by our dear friend and resident artist, Kristen Maize. The next day the first Pinch of Salt day market was held and boy were we busy. We love our neighborhood and were thrilled to be apart of these two great events! The next Honolulu Night Market is coming up on Saturday February 16th and we cannot wait!!!

After the holidays we were able to regroup and briefly catch our breaths, but just for moment- as we needed to spring into action for the Valentines Day preparations and in the planning for our first workshop on Tuesday, February 19th. Stay tuned for more on that....and for all the exciting things Paiko has in store for 2013!
