How to Make Flower from Pineapple Crown

       The technique to make pineapple crown flowers is the easiest way to decorate a pineapple platter or fruit platter if we have pineapple. Leaves of pineapple crowns in our stores very often dry on the top and can’t be pretty pineapple platter decor as is. But I am going to share the solution on how to refresh the pineapple crown creative way and use it as a fruit table decor. The pineapple flower is probably one of the easiest decorating for a fruit platter with pineapple. I saw how to make this flower technique in one of the grocery store videos. The video was not about how to make the flower, just generally about the store. In one grocery store’s video, they just cut out the leaves around the crown and use shaved crowns to decorate the fruit display. They cut a lot of crowns because it is a large store and a large display. I am thankful for this video and I got inspired to create a video about the idea and this page! Now I always use this technique if my pineapple crown can’t be fresh enough to be a fruit platter decor as is. It is an unexpected way to use a pineapple crown but try and see how easily we can make a pretty flower from an unattractive slightly dry crown.

         Sometimes inside of the crown leaves are dark and the flower will be not too pretty. I removed the center of the flower. I make the center from mango with 1″ fruit corer. We can make the center from the core of the pineapple as well.
