Oh pineapples. You’re so prickly on the outside, so soft and sweet and juicy on the inside. You’re the symbol of hospitality. And dare I say it but the most charismatic of fruits? Or versatile?
Plus they only cost a couple of dollars.
Pineapples never last long in our home because we love so much to eat them. But we can’t help ourselves from making this fruit a little festive around the holidays.
I’ve also got a couple of pineapple holder things. (Does anyone know what they’re actually called?) They’re perfect for holding cards and photos.
I usually keep one of these in the guest room to hold a notecard with the wifi password, but it’s Polynesian Christmas so they’re both coming out into the main rooms.
Pineapples everywhere! For good measure, and extra pineapple-y goodness, we also got crafty and painted pinecones as pineapples.
I love turning this fantastic fruit into Christmas decor and adding a tropical vibe to our holiday.
