Party Like a Pineapple

Have you noticed a certain summer fruit that is popping up all over Pinterest and in all your favorite stores? Pineapples are the hot item right now, from clothes, to home decor, to accessories, to party themes. Why are these unique fruits getting so much hype? Historically, pineapples are a symbol of hospitality, warmth, and good cheer. They are also simply a fun shape, bold color, and happy reminder of summer. What’s not to love? With summer just around the corner, we’ve found some of our favorite ideas to party like a pineapple.  Find inspiration for a kid’s birthday party, summer dinner party, or even Mother’s Day!

Creating a pineapple inspired dessert table will definitely spread good cheer.  We’re dreaming of pineapple shaped cookies, decorated cupcakes and macaroons, and anything that tastes like pineapple.  Offset your table with a bold photo wall of fun pineapple patterns and phrases.  We love how this bright yellow plays with black and white striped accents.

If you’re hosting a summer party, you have to play pineapple bowling! This is so easy to set up in your backyard and the best part is you can use a coconut as your bowling ball.

Don’t let your guests leave without a pineapple treat bag! They can fill them with leftover goodies or their part of the pinata filling. These are made with regular paper lunch bags, painted with green, yellow, and black paint, then cutting narrow triangles at the top of the bag.  How cute are they?!
