The Pineapple Meets Hostess with the Mostess Monday


Hi you guys!  How was the weekend?  We have had a fun filled month of visitors, so I have been loving my hostess role these past few weekends.  Nothing makes me happier than keeping the house tidy, shopping for little happies to surprise my guests, and adding that little something special to our nest to make guests' stays all the more special.

On October 1, we celebrated my one year anniversary as an Event Planner at a very special place in South Bend.  I never dreamed that I would be getting to use my love of design and special occasions to further the development of an amazing university.  Since I spend many work days dreaming up special touches for events, I thought I needed to start sharing some of that dreaming with you folks.  I hope you will enjoy getting a little event inspiration from my "Hostess with the Mostess Monday" posts.

First up, the PINEAPPLE. Celebrated as s symbol of hospitality there is nothing like a fresh pineapple to get a party started.  I mean what is not to like about a fruit that looks like it is wearing a crown?  In the photos above, you can find my favorite ways to incorporate a little bit of hospitality in to your party, or try them all to celebrate an in your face pineapple party theme.  

1.  Pineapple print clothes.
2.  Pineapple invitations.
3 & 4.  Pineapple Centerpieces.
5. Pineapple vase.
6.  Pineapple tabel accent.
7.  Pineapple bowl.
8.  Pineapple bar accent.  

I would love to know which idea you would be willing to try?  I can't choose, so thinking a full on "Pineapple Party" is in my very near future.  Happy Monday...JMR
