#2 Pineapples have history and meaning
When we use pineapples in our outdoor or indoor decor, we’re using a symbol with hundreds of years of history. Early explorers in the 15th century came across the fruit in their journeys to South America and the West Indies.
A few centuries later, European royalty popularized the treasured fruit and demanded that it be cultivated in their greenhouses. They were mesmerized to say the least.
In America, early day colonists imported pineapple from the Carribean Islands and displayed the pineapple in lavish centerpieces at dinner parties, which was the start of the fruit’s famous symbolism for hospitality and friendliness.
If you were a colonist who couldn’t afford a pineapple, no worries – you could rent one!

Top Picks for Outdoor Pineapple Decor Lighting
Solar Pineapple Lights
Plow & Hearth’s Solar Pineapple Garden Stake is beautiful as a daytime garden display but at night, those beautiful pineapple crystals beam with a beautiful glow. The height is 33 inches. To prevent fading over time, the manufacturer recommends spraying with a UV protectant like SunGuard or Krylon.
This 2-pack of solar pineapple lights comes on shorter stakes – 16.5 inch total height. Sold on Amazon.
Tcamp’s Pineapple Solar Hanging Lanterns are brighter and bigger than previous versions and the customers are loving the improved model. The company increased the LED lights from 30 to 30 and lengthen the solar lantern to nearly 10 inches from the bottom of the pineapple to the top of the handle.
By charging the lanterns in full sunlight for 8 hours, you can expect the pineapple lights to stay illuminated at least 8 hours. Have fun hanging these lights around a gazebo and on trees, pergolas, and porches.
How about Solar Wind Chimes with pineapples and coconut trees? I’ve never seen anything like this, but I’m loving the whimsical, colorful vibes.
When fully charged, the lights last 6 to 8 hours and change randomly from red, green, blue, and purple. The wind chimes are made for outdoor use and thus waterproof. Reviews indicate that the chimes may be smaller than expected.
