Pineapple Packaging

Sweet and simple.

I've always loved pineapples.  Food, stationery, home decor, it's all good. Named after the pine cone because of the spikes and cone shape, they are a symbol of hospitality and in some instances, wealth.

I first noticed them as a colonial symbol when visiting Williamsburg, Virginia.  They are everywhere -- linens, soaps, dishes, etc.  But what really blew me away were decorations like this at Christmas (source BHG).

The whole area is lit up and decorated beautifully.  I was stunned to learn that the decorations were made from real fruit!  If you ever have the chance to visit Williamsburg at Christmastime, you'll discover a gem.

MOOD WHEN DONE = Welcoming

The decor is beautiful and so is your packaging and tag. This sure is The Land of Plenty.

Just beautiful, Joan! I love using the pineapple here as a sign of welcome. There is a pineapple sign hanging near our door. Colonial Williamsburg at Christmastime is near the top of my travel dreams!! ♡
