Pineapple Sunshine

I live in Denver and we are treated with some seriously wonderful weather this time of year. Its been in the 60s for weeks and I've slowly started packing up my sweaters and pushing my boots to the back of the closet. But today, it is 20 degrees and we have a bit of a blizzard on our hands. I'd already mentally broken up with winter for the year so when I had to pull out my winter boots to walk the dog last night, my mind was pulling me towards summer and away from the snow. In my mental escape from winter, I'm dreaming of the tropical: pineapples

There's something unexpected about produce in a center piece and a pile of pineapples could make a great statement piece for a summer beach wedding table.

And I love the idea of a pineapple margarita for a signature drink.

Pineapples are an international symbol for welcome. What better way to welcome out of town guests than with this pineapple tote



Wouldn't these make sure a fun alternative bridesmaids dress? Or maybe just a honeymoon on the beach.




Summer may still be a far off memory but until then, I am gonna be sitting by my furnace, drinking a margarita in a sundress.
