Decorating Your Home for Fall

Fall has already started, and now it’s time to look for the seasonal decorations that best suit your home. GIve your home a little warmth for the upcoming cool, fall weather!

Oranges, golds, browns, and beiges would be the best color options this time. Good thing there are many items with these colors during this season! Leaves, pines, pumpkins, tree branches, candles, and many more are all readily available!!

Use pumpkins as your table centerpiece for your dinner parties. Halloween and Thanksgiving parties always bring many families and friends together. So, surprise them with the best centerpiece they have ever seen with decorated pumpkins and beautiful brown pine cones. It’s a great combination! If you like candles, you can include them in your decorative elements to give it an even warmer, welcoming sense!

Another idea is to grab the fallen leaves of your favorite tree and fill a glass jar with them. It is so simple and looks so great that people would compliment and admire your creativity.

You can also paint tree branches with golden tones and browns and set them vertically by your front door. They will look like a decorative column made by nature! If you want to take it a step further, you can tie the branches together with a cute orange or beige ribbon and give it an extra color pop.

Lastly, if you have a fireplace at home, it is time to start using it! It will fill your home with cozy warmth and help combat the cooler, rainy weather that the Fall season usually brings.

Use some of these simple and gorgeous ideas for decorating your home, and make it look amazing for this Fall season!

Did You Know? Pineapple History

Written by RJT employee, Remington Colbert

Pineapples have been a staple of American hospitality since the original colonies. The South has taken it to a higher level, with pineapples found in home decor, architectural elements, and a multitude of dishes. But did you know about how that symbolism came about? 

Americans love a good folklore story. The love of oral tradition has been woven into the fabric of our country since the dawn of time. Native Americans told centuries old stories that explain the marvel of the natural world across the country. The origins of pineapple symbolism is a more modern story that shows the origins of this country.

The Tradition:

When pineapples were first brought to Europe during the time of Columbus, they were incredibly rare, highly coveted, and incredibly expensive. It took nearly two centuries to perfect a hot house that could grow the tropical pineapple plant in Europe. However, the fruit that did not spoil on the long journey became a huge hit with nobility. In the original colonies, society women of Boston, New York, and Philadelphia would rent pineapples from confectionaries to display on dinner tables as a staus symbol and as a welcome symbol. This is where the symbolism of hospitality first originated. As farming and transportation industries developed, the ability to access these fruits became easier. In time, pineapple elements were seen in fabrics, art, and architecture, and the fruits were found in working-class kitchens across the country. We still see these elements in many places around the country. Charleston, South Carolina has an iconic pineapple fountain on the bay to welcome people to the community. 

The Legend:

The sea captains of New England historically traded among the Caribbean Islands. After returning with cargos of spices, rum, and a selection of fruits,  including pineapples, captains would drop anchor in the harbor and see to their cargo and crew. After work was done for the trip, captains would return home....
