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.

Getting Ready for Thanksgiving

Cute Thanksgiving Place Cards

via Holly Mathis Interiors

Remember these from last year:
via Martha Stewart

To help you create decorative place cards for the Thanksgiving table,
Martha Stewart has free clip art. Download and print the place cards
(cream or neutral-colored card stock will work best),
cut along the dotted line, inscribe your guest's name,
and score down the middle with a bone folder.
You can also make a flat card with a border by using double-sided tape to affix the place-card design to a piece of card stock 1/4 inch larger than the place card. You can punch a hole in it and use twine to tie it to a napkin, or simply tuck it into the napkin.

note from Jenny at Picky Palate: 
Another simple recipe that’s perfect for brunch or any 
time of  day for that matter.  The cream cheese frosting on top is good enough to keep on hand for dipping fruit or crackers.

Pumpkin Spiced Cream Cheese Breakfast Rolls

  • 2 packages/cans Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
  • 4 0z cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 Cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 Cup canned pumpkin (Libby’s)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Unroll crescent rolls to form 4 rectangles placed side by side.  Pinch seams together to form one long rectangle.  Place cream cheese, brown sugar, pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg into a mixer; beat until well combined.  Spread mixture over crescents leaving a 1/2 inch border around edges.  Starting at long end, roll up then cut into 1 inch pieces.  Place around 2 9 inch cake pans that have been sprayed with cooking spray.  I left the centers open so the rolls form a circle.
  2. Bake for 28-30 minutes or until rolls are golden brown.  Remove and let cool for 10 minutes.  Frost warm rolls with cream cheese frosting recipe below.

  • 4 oz softened cream cheese
  • 1/2 Cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 Tablespoon canned pumpkin (Libby’s)

 Mix all ingredients into a large bowl until smooth.  Spread over warm rolls.
