Pineapple Flower Vase

I love Summer birthdays even though mine is in March.  I love pool parties, popsicles, BBQs, and water gun fights.  I go all out for my friends and families’ birthdays when they are in the Summer because it’s so much more fun to celebrate outdoors with fun props.  I made these for my aunt’s birthday party and everyone loved them.  They are so easy to make and instantly turn your Summer party into a luau themed one.  All you need are pineapples and flowers.  Follow the easy step-by-step below.

3.  Cut away at the meat inside the pineapple. You can eat it later!

4. You can scoop the rest of the meat away with a spoon.

5. I experimented first with the arrangement to see which flowers should be at the forefront of the vase versus the back.

6. I settled on this one and added the palm in the back. What do you think?
