 Photo How to serve pineapple for a party

       Pineapple is one of the great fruits to make a platter with minimal decor. On the page, I have a super easy decor for pineapple platter ideas. I like easy decoration without much effort. We don’t have to be so artistic to create a great pineapple presentation platter. For the best result better to choose a pineapple with fresh and beautiful leaves but it is not always possible. I have a few simple ideas and took photos to share with you. The first idea on how to make the lantern is more impressive to serve for evening events and the rest of the pineapple platters we can serve any time.

1. Romantic Pineapple Lantern Platter Idea

       This idea I saw in a small cafe many many years ago. This is really clever and cute idea! We use empty pineapple skin as a candle cover and slices of pineapple serve around. It is so cute and romantic in a dark room. I wish I can make nice photos in a dark room. I tried a few times and the photos come out too dark and have no colors. I am going to describe how we can make the pineapple lantern without special tools. I used only 2 knives. This way I made so many in the past. I wish I knew about the pineapple corer slicer many years ago, this tool really makes life easier to cut pineapple easy and fancy way.

*It maybe sounds complicated with 2 knives, but bread knife is the best for me to remove nicely and even the center of pineapple.

3. Make a cutout in an order you like around.
