Pineapple Pinnacle - A Symbol of Hospitality

The pineapple has been a universal symbol of hospitality and welcome for many centuries all over the world.  Originally, trade routes between America and Caribbean islands were slow and perilous, and it was considered a significant achievement for a host to procure a ripe pineapple for guests. Due to its association with warmth and friendliness, pineapples were often used as the “crowning” piece in displays of food.  Similarly, the pineapple symbol was used frequently in the 18th and 19th centuries to decorate bed posts, tablecloths, napkins—anything associated with welcoming guests.  Today, the pineapple remains a fitting symbol for the hospitality industry, and pineapple-themed products still abound.
