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.

Just gather your seasonal flower of choice

(try daisies or mums), and poke holes into

the pumpkin wherever you want blooms to 

be placed. Then cut stems of flowers short,
and insert into the holes.

Tuesday Tip-Halloween Tips

Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween is right around the corner. Thousands of children will be out and about that night collecting their bags of goodies. As much fun as those kids will have, Halloween night requires parents to be extra vigilant with their safety.
By following these simple tips, you’ll greatly diminish your child’s risk of injury.
  • Ensure your child has light reflectors on them to make them more visible in the dark.
  • Keep your child in your sight. That will allow you to monitor where they are.
  • Don’t allow teenagers to go out alone. Make sure they are in a group of kids. There’s safety in numbers.
  • Make sure older children who go out with their friends have their cell phone. Have them check in with you periodically.
  • Trick or treat in neighborhoods you are familiar with. Being caught out after dark in an area you don’t know is never a good idea.
  • When you return home, before your child enjoys their treats, check the candy to make sure it hasn’t been tampered with.
  • When your trick or treating with your children, be aware of where you are and who is around you. While Halloween is supposed to be a night of light-hearted fun for children, there are those who will take advantage of the anonymity of the costumes.

Halloween is a wonderful opportunity for families to spend quality time together indulging in carefree fun. There’s a pure joy in the shrieks and peals of laughter of children as they see the decorations and costumes. You’ll have a timeless memory as you watch your child race up the sidewalk anticipating the candy they’ll receive.

Children grow up so fast. Before you know it they’ll be hanging out with their friends. So enjoy this Halloween but do it safely.
