During the last minute 4th of July party, I had this odd panic to really dress the backyard up with some fresh flowers. I don’t ever really have tons of friends over, so if I was going to spend the money for a party than it was damn well going to look cute! I didn’t have any vases so I went to the next best thing which was… one of my 4 pineapples that I had purchased.
Farewell, little pineapple friend.
I used my Adorox Stainless Steel Pineapple Fruit Core Slicer Cutter Kitchen Tool (Stainless Steel (1 Slicer))which is God’s gift to pineapple addicts like myself. SO MANY PINEAPPLES I CAN EAT NOW! That and it empties the core out of the pineapple. I hollowed it out a bit more after using the core slicer. I then shoved a plastic red solo cup in that little pineapple.
And WAHLAH. I have a tiny pineapple vase. I trimmed all the flowers to fit the length, played with the arrangement and was so happy with the final result.
I then took the rest of the leftover flowers and spread them over the tiki bar. Pop one in a tiki mug here, here… and here! As you can see, my little bar is a work in progress. It’s a nice collection of tiki mugs from all over the country, random thrift store finds, and crafts made by my brother.
