In Hawaii, pineapples are called hala kahiki for their resemblance to another fruit native to the islands, called hala. Though not native to Hawaii, the pineapple has long been a symbol representative of Hawaiian hospitality.
Planning a summer luau? Pineapples are essential. But what can you do with the fruit when you’re done eating it? Transform the shell into a gorgeous centerpiece!
- Carefully remove the top of the pineapple with the knife. Using the knife, or, if you have it, a pineapple corer, separate all of the fruit from the hard exterior.
- In a well-ventilated area, carefully spray the pineapple with a coat of the gold spray paint. Allow the first coat to dry, and spray another coat.
- Wipe down the inside of the pineapple to remove some of the juice, and arrange the fresh flowers within the pineapple to create your centerpiece.
