How it got the name pineapple?…
this was one of the comments i got for my last Pineapple garden doily.

I thought it will be nice, if i mention the relevance of the pineapple motif in the home decor
and how it got the name.
So that all the curious minds will get the answer.

It seems Pineapple is the symbol of hospitality in the history of colonial America..
There is a mention about it in Wikipedia .
crochet silver angels
During the early Colonial days in the United States,
families would set a fresh pineapple in the center of the table
as a colorful centerpiece for the festive meal.

Signs of this universal symbol of hospitality are seen painted on the front doors of homes
and found in a variety of table centerpieces.
Not only have wood-carvers etched this immortal symbol,
but the delicate hands of needle-workers have preserved this symbol in family heirlooms
over the centuries.
Items such as pineapple samplers, table cloths, and crochet doilies
are a few of the items found in homes.
You can read more about it here at symbolism of the Pineapple.
Here are few more interesting links to read more about pineapple.
Thank you so much for stopping by with your lovely comments.
Until next time..
Have a nice day…nima
