The Pineapple - You're welcome!

The pineapple is the international symbol of hospitality. Crown your centerpiece with one at your next formal dinner. Do not leave the mahogany dining table bare the next morning; put a fine porcelain pineapple on it and one in the foyer too. Pineapple wallpaper for guestrooms seems appropriate, perhaps with a rich brown background. Delight visitors with a pineapple robe in their closet and pineapple-shaped guest soaps. If you have not used pineapple finials on your exterior, I suggest you hop to it at once - very New Orleans.

Dressing for the opera? Wow the crowd with a pineapple vest and drawers. Speaking of exteriors (wasn’t that a Woody Allen movie?) we all fly activity flags from our front porches these days whether it be a pumpkin, shamrock or crossed knitting-needles. Fly a pineapple! You will soon have unexpected guests. Until then, aloha and mahalo.

The artichoke is also beautiful when done in stone, ceramic or gold. Unlike the pineapple, an artichoke is something I actually enjoy eating.

For a minute there you scared me. For the finial company also sells stone artichokes, but the one posted is "Whimsical Pineapple." That would be a great band name.

I'd say "Belligerent Pineapple", but that's redundant.

I just founf a recipe for a vanilla-infused run-soaked caramel glazed whole pineapple served warm, which I plan to make next weekend. I'll save you a slice.

Bryce Digdug said...

Yes, Jill that sound delish.

Steve - you're welcome. Please remain seated until the plane is finished taxi-ing to the gate. You will receive your complimentary lei greeting at the luggage carousel. Then you will receive free transfers to your hotel. (The Ilikai? The Ala Moana? Royal Hawaiian (old building)?

Wow - that vest is very Peter Allen. I do want a pineapple flag now, however. Thanks, Bryce!
