Why Pineapples and Pearls?

I am often asked where the name Pineapples and Pearls came from. While it is, of course, a great example of catchy alliteration like so many blog names, there was a little more thought behind it.

The pineapple has been a symbol of welcome and hospitality in the United States ever since the colonial days when hostesses would often place a pineapple above their doorway or in a centerpiece to welcome their guests. It has continued as a symbol of welcome over the course of the centuries and today is a popular motif in design.

Pearls are of course a classic style icon and embody the timeless look that I aim for. What would Jackie O. or Holly Golightly have been without their pearls?

So, there you have it, Pineapples and Pearls, a blog welcoming you with a classic look and warm hospitality.
