My husband, Sam, lived in American Samoa from the time he was eight until he was 11. His parents were teaching at a private school. Seven years later he went back across the sea and served a two-year religious mission in both American Samoa and Wester Samoa.
Needless to say, we have a love for everything Polynesian and have what I call “the shrine” to Samoa in our family room.
Whenever I find an unique product or service, I like to share it with readers. Today I found just such a business that fits right in with our Samoan theme.
Bamboo & Tikis has all sorts of fabulous island themes products. From entire sets of bamboo furniture to bamboo rugs to bamboo matting. You could decorate an entire home in Polynesian goodness without any trouble at all.
Do you have a lush yard with a pool? How about finishing off some areas with natural rolled bamboo fences? Add a couple of tiki statues around the pool.
For the crowning glory, create a thatch umbrella to add shade and function, as well as a big kick of style.
Now gather your friends in your new tropical paradise. Throw some burgers on the barbecue and whip up a pineapple slush. You’re in for some island fun.
