Renee's floral design style has an acute sense of classic Hawaiian elegance and contemporary island glamour, while adding in her Hawaiian roots and customs to each piece she creates. Her flower design expertise and Hawaii flower knowledge is unbeatable.

How it all Started

Renee was born in Kailua, Oahu. During her senior year in high school she joined her school's retail sales program and was quickly hired as a sales associate for a flower shop. That is where her passion for flowers grew.  She continued her floral education throughout the years becoming a professional floral designer, wedding planner and event designer. She eventually received the coveted title Certified Floral Designer through the prestigious AIFD association. Renee had worked for many wedding flower companies and Hawaii destination management companies, before starting her own floral event company, Renee Thomas Designs in 2012. From many years of traveling to Maui to service large-scale events, she felt the need to open Maui Wholesale Blooms to give customers flower options. There was little help for Maui brides to find reasonably priced flowers for destination Maui weddings. That is why Maui Wholesale Blooms was born. Our goal is to provide our customers with reasonably priced flower bunches, bouquets and event/wedding decor options.

Q&A

 

Flowers

Q: How can you offer flowers at such affordable prices?

A: We have no expensive shop front. We are located 15 minutes from the airport in a warehouse/office space complex that offers lower rental rates than major shopping locations. We simply pass the savings on to you!

 

Q: Do your package prices change depending on what flowers I want?

A: Hawaii is located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, about 3,000k miles from the nearest continent. All product has to be sent on a ship or a plane to reach us!  Considering the most popular wedding flowers are spring flowers (Roses, Lilies, ect) that grow in colder climates, flowers can be more expensive here due to the shipping costs. To keep your wedding flower costs reduced, and keep the integrity of your dream wedding flowers, Renee (owner) recommends mixing in local flowers with focal spring flowers in your designs. For example, if you love peonies, choose an orchid bouquet and mix in a few peonies as the focal in your bouquet.

 

Q: I want to order my wedding flowers, but I'm not sure where to start?

A: Maui Wholesale Blooms makes it easy to begin. Simply email us your detailed wedding flower list, along with any wedding flower pictures you find attractive and we'll give you estimated prices and recommendations factoring in your wedding date with seasonal blooms.
