Now that the plumeria season is here, there are several different ways to enjoy the plumeria blooms indoors. I love to photograph them as well as bring them indoors. Sometimes I would spend time picking up the beautiful blooms that fall on the ground or pick some directly from the tree and just make several beautiful arrangements. I bring them to the office or bring them to family and friends when I visit them. Here are some of the many ways I enjoyed my plumeria blooms indoors last year:

I make birthday cards and photo collages to congratulate my family and friends on special occasions or to offer sympathy.



We can show love through plumeria photos:

This year I hope to have enough blooms to welcome my visiting family, friends and colleages with leis.

Interesting post, Gigi; I will be making a lei for our hostess today.
Here is my favorite way of displaying Plumeria - the blooms last a long time in these ring vases. In the summer I have several around the house.

I have picked these up on Ebay, at yard sales etc. Most of them are either from England or Germany so they are not always easy to find. I have been collecting them for years now.
There is a beautiful (but pricey) lei-shaped one too.Thumb of 2013-05-25/Dutchlady1/27afa6

They display your plumeria blooms so well and I am drooling over the variety of blooms you have.

Beautifully creative..and I saw those ring vases for sale at a Hawaiian Plumeria site, online, let me look around.
(Smile) I'm looking forward to enjoying my blooms a bit differently.... I'm going to toss a basketful into my tub, and jump in for a blissfully fragrant soak after a hard day's work!!!

Floating fragrant plumerias in the tub...why not? That would be like a vacation.

Awwww Cyra, that is a great find on those plumeria rings and the price is good plus shipping of course. My problem is I am too old school, I don't buy things online and have no Paypal account. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing : Rolling on the floor laughing If I can buy anything over the phone with gift cards then I would. Hilarious!

Cheryl, I love these! Maybe I can find these in our local stores here. I will ask around for pansy rings. This would be a great way to showcase my plumeria blooms.

Thanks Cyra. Dad is already used to my e-card. He likes it better because he can show it to others since it goes straight to his cellphone.

I have posted this picture before, but it remains one of the most appropriate images (in my mind) for this day.

Everyone have a great 4th of july!
