Pineapple - Pink

The pineapple has been a symbol of Wealth and hospitality since the days of the early colonies. The legend began with a sea captain of New England, who sailed among the Caribbean Islands and returned to the colonies bearing their cargo of fruits, spices and rum. According to the legend, the captain would spear a pineapple on a fence post outside his home to let his friends know of his safe return from sea. The pineapple was an invitation for them to visit, share his food and drink, and listen to tales of his voyage.

The English who were overwhelmed with the fruit drew inspiration from its looks and unique shape. As a result, the pineapple inspired the Jamaica Coat of Arms and was used as an architectural element in pottery and planters. The artistic appeal and decorative effect that the pineapple rendered were significant and the pineapple symbol inspired bed posts, tablecloths, napkins and napkin holders as well as bookends and candle holders. The symbol of this cherished fruit grew to be represented on any form of decorations that were visibly displayed for guests to enjoy and feel welcomed.
