Why Pineapple Hill?

The pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality since the days of the early American colonies. According to legend, the symbol began with the sea captains of New England who would spear a pineapple on a fence post outside their home to let the community know of their safe return home and to invite friends to visit and share their hospitality.

Likewise, we hope Pineapple Hill Designs boutique will make you feel “Welcome”! We know how important it is to find something special for that certain someone or just the right accessory to complete a room. We believe everyday is a day to celebrate, and we have just the thing to help you create something special out of the ordinary.

This Summer - Wing It

Let a flock of colorful paper butterflies loose, and you'll instantly give party decorations a lift.
Trace the template onto a folded piece of paper, cut out the shape, and unfold the wings. 
(For different sizes, photocopy the template, reducing or enlarging the image.) 
Party Idea? Wing It
Attach some to paper lanterns with tape or glue dots (sold by the roll at crafts stores), then fold the wings upward for true-to-life flutter form. 
For topflight cocktails, make 2 slits in the center of a butterfly cutout, and then slide a straw through.
 From Martha Stewart Living, June 2007
