Everything’s Coming Up Pineapples

Hosting a party this summer?

Put the pineapple front and center and embrace the popular trend we’re seeing in everything from T-shirts to home accessories. This visually fun fruit, the icon of hospitality, lends itself well to a theme, whether you’re envisioning an all-out tropical soiree or looking for an easy, elegant motif to build your party around. The pineapple even works for kids’ parties, offering up loads of whimsy and inspiration for everything from playful, “poppy” decorations to sweet and healthy snacks.

A (tasty) tidbit of history

Known as a symbol of Southern hospitality for centuries, Christopher Columbus is credited with discovering the pineapple in the Caribbean in 1493. (Now that was a party!) As the course of history firmly planted the pineapple as a status symbol and an exotic gift among nobility, the fringy fruit’s been gracing tables ever since. (Remember Grandma’s pineapple upside-down cake or 1950s-style Jell-O® mold?)

Pineapples just look cool!

So began the journey of the humble pineapple to its historical place of prominence in architecture, design, and décor. (Think finials and door knockers.) This classic symbol of hospitality has never gone out of style — it continues to reinvent itself in fresh and modern ways, including the re-emergence we’re seeing today as a home accessory that complements any decorating style, whether elegant, modern, traditional or eclectic.
