How to Make a Pineapple Centerpiece

Last year I created a fab Cinco de Mayo table on the blog but I never shared the DIY for the fun Pinepapple flower arrangement! So today I wanted to share this easy and fun DIY for Cinco de Mayo. The best part… 1. Nothing goes to waste {you can eat the middle… or better yet, use it in a cocktail!}, and 2. You save money on vases. So fab! Here is what you will need to get started:

  • Ripe pineapple
  • Knife
  • Scissors
  • Plastic cup
  • Scooper or ice cream scoop
  • Fresh flowers (I used purple tulips and pink peonies, among others)

Step 1: Cut the spiked top off of the pineapple.

Step 2: Cut a hole into the pineapple. Make sure that you leave the skin nice and thick so the pineapple stays sturdy.

Step 3: Carve out the inside. This is where you can work with a knife or ice-cream scoop. Feel free to place large pieces aside for enjoying later! Take a plastic cup and place it inside of the pineapple; this will be your mini vase of water for the flowers. Trim the cup shorter if needed.

Step 4: Create your arrangement and trim so it will fit within the pineapple.

Step 5: Fluff up your flowers and set your centerpiece out on display!
