With the graduation ceremony comes lots of celebration with families. You may get a bouquet of flowers, a cute balloon, or even some leis.

SO. MANY. LEIS!!!

To be fair, we have A LOT of family that come out to support our big day. Its just our ~thing~ to bring the leis along too. In our culture, it symbolizes love and appreciation. We make leis to show how much love we have for an individual, whether it be for a graduation, wedding, etc.
