Pineapple Vase

Hi all, today I try out the latest flower arranging trend: the pineapple vase. 

I love using flowers to brighten up a room, the large variety of colours and styles makes florals the perfect way to bring life into a space. In recent years I have become very interested in flowers and arranging them. Whenever flowers are bought for the house I nominate myself to arrange them beautifully: spending time picking the perfect vase and layering the blooms together.

I first discovered the pineapple vase trend in Lauren Conrad's Celebrate book. In the bachelorette party section, she wrote about how pineapple vases are an innovative and fun way to display your blooms. I couldn't agree more, ever since discovering this trend I have been eager to try it out myself, and today's the day I finally got around to experimenting with creating my own pineapple vase. If you haven't got your hands on Lauren Conrad's latest book Celebrate then Pinterest have many variations of the pineapple vase trend to inspire you to create your own.

Here is how I created mine!

Step one: de-head and core the pineapple like you would a pumpkin on Halloween.

Step two: cut a small plastic bottle in half across the width (this will act as a traditional vase and store the water). Place the plastic bottle inside the pineapple so that is it out of sight and fill with water.

Step four: place the flowers inside the plastic bottle arranging to your preferred hight and style (I prefer to display my flowers shorter and closer to the top of the vase).

Ta-da! Here is the final outcome, I Hope you love it as much as I do! This fun vibrant flower display is perfect for the summer months whether you're hosting a summer party or BBQ or like myself hoping to inject some colour into your room, this pineapple vase will be your go-to flower arrangement for the rest of summer.

I hope this post inspired you to create your own pineapple flower vase. If you do try out this current floral trend make sure you show us on social media using the hashtag: #elevenohseven
