Don't Have Space For a Christmas Tree? Decorate a Pineapple Instead
Christmas trees aren't for everyone. Some people can't fit a fir inside their cramped abodes, while others are turned off by the expense, or by the idea of bugs hitchhiking their way inside. Fake trees are always an option, but a recent trend sweeping Instagram—pineapples as mini-Christmas "trees"—might convince you to forego the forest vibe for a more tropical aesthetic.
As Thrillist reports, the pineapple-as-Christmas-tree idea appears to have originated on Pinterest before it, uh, ripened into a social media sensation. Transforming a pineapple into a Halloween “pumpkin” requires carving and tea lights, but to make the fruit festive for Christmas all one needs are lights, ornaments, swaths of garland, and any other tiny tchotchkes that remind you of the holidays. The final result is a tabletop decoration that's equal parts Blue Hawaii and Miracle on 34th Street.

Whatever it is you celebrate this time of year, I hope it is happy and full of love! . We celebrate Christmas at our house and so far this pineapple is the only thing decorated 😂 . Holidays with infertility are hard. How many times have we all said “this will be the last year we celebrate without a baby” and yet, another year goes by without the gift you want the most. As we make our way through this season, don’t forget to take care of yourself. Its ok to skip that work party, its ok to avoid the mall because you know Santa will be there with all the kids, I can almost hear the bottle of wine and netflix calling your name from here. Its ok to not be ok! But find your balance, don’t shut people out. We need all the love we can get, so surround yourself with those who understand your pain and will feed you good food and extra cookies! . And if you need someone to talk to, I’m always just a message away. I’ll help in any way I can. . Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!! ❤️🎄 . . #holidaypineapple #merrychristmas #holidayswithinfertility #infertilitysupport #ttcsupport #ivf #ttc #lifeafterloss #onedayatatime #infertilitysucks #thisisinfertility #1in4 #1in8 #pineapple #pineapplelife #christmaspineapple #ttccommunity #ivfjourney #merryandbright #support #angelbaby
