PAR Pineapple

The pineapple is a universal symbol of hospitality and welcome for many centuries. During early Colonial days in the United States, families would set a fresh pineapple in the center of the table as a colorful centerpiece of the festive meal, especially when visitors joined them in celebration. The pineapple was served as a special dessert after the meal as a symbol of hospitality and warm welcome. Often when the visitor spent the night, he was given the bedroom which had the fruit carved on the bedposts or headboard–even if the bedroom belonged to the head of the household.

The traditional representation of “welcome” is why we chose the Pineapple as our symbol.
