These are the instructions for a fruit palm tree that I posted on the site and got such a response to. Thanks everyone!!

1. 3/4inch about 4 ft high copper tubing slightly bend to form a tree truck.
2. attach it to a very thick board with a flanch from the plumbing supply department such as home depot
3. cut both ends off of 5 pineapples and core center ( I do this with another piece of 3/4inch solid pipe)
4. place each of the 5 pineapples on the copper pole to cover it to the top. sometimes you need 6 pineapples because they might be too small. you also might need to slightly cut the pineapples on an angle so they fit close together on the bent copper pole.
5. cut bit size pieces of fruit and place on a skewers that will stick in the pineapples. I try to use pineapples, cantalope, honeydew and strawberries alternating the fruit so it looks colorful.
6. buy a fake plastice palm plant and place on top. I took my plant apart so I can make it look more real. There you have your fruit palm tree!!!

MUST BE ASSEMBLED ON SITE OF PARTY, IT DOES NOT TRANSPORT WELL. PLACE IT NEXT TO A CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN FOR EXTRA YUMMINESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! icon_biggrin.gif
