Fence and shutter cutouts are also great way to highlight a pineapple’s silhouette. In coastal locales across the U.S., there are companies that specialize in creating one-of-a-kind wood products featuring cutouts of your favorite motif. Maybe for you, a horseshoe cut into the barn door of your Texas ranch feels just right. Never pass up an opportunity to transform a functional item like a door into a source of joy.

In Britain and particularly colonial America, the pineapple as a symbol generally means hospitality or welcome. According to an academic paper titled “The Hospitable Pineapple” by professor Michael Olmert, it can also be associated with Christian beliefs, as pineapple plants die to produce fruit. English architect Christopher Michael Wren (1632–1723) put pineapple finials on the cathedrals he designed.Olmert traces the pineapple’s association with welcome and hospitality to the British West Indies, where in the 1600s and 1700s planters would leave a fresh pineapple at the gates of their mansions when they were home and open to receiving guests.An echo of that tradition is seen in this gate by Wallace Landscape Associates in Pennsylvania.
