Popping Up Pineapple

Pineapple I Pineapple II Pineapple IV Pineapple V

With summer in full swing there is no doubt the ever so tropical fruit, the pineapple, is a bit of a hot commodity this summer. Not only is the Pineapple popular to eat, but now you can spot the spiky fruit in fashion and decor for your wedding or summer time event.

Being a strong believer in “Timeless Hospitality,” all of us at Valencia Group & Lone Star Court absolutely love this trend since the pineapple is the universal symbol for hospitality. Surprisingly this started all the way back in the late 1400’s where Spaniards would know which villages they were welcome at if a pineapple was placed in front of its entry. This trend spread to Europe then to North America, making the pineapple an international symbol of welcome and hospitality.

Now these sweet succulent fruits are found everywhere. Look above at my favorite recipe, pineapple prints, and pineapple decor.

Succulent Florals, a Summer Wedding Trend

This wedding season succulents have been one of the top wedding trends for 2015. These sweet little plants can be spotted anywhere in wedding décor from the brides bouquet to place card holders at the reception, and even a precious thank you gift for guests to take home. Since succulents are so versatile these little beauties can be incorporated into any wedding design to add a beautiful organic element to your wedding.

Needless to say I can’t get enough of this trend. Look at my favorite ways succulents have been incorporated in wedding décor.

Have you met Jack?

lscmarcusandjackA handsome four-legged guy named Jack is giving our guests and employees yet another reason to fall in love with our retro hotel and the laid-back vibe.

Jack is an Australian Shepard that lives at the hotel with Marcus Latner, our general manager. They live in an apartment above the front desk and spend their days side-by-side greeting guests, doing walkthroughs of the property, and overseeing all aspects of the hotel.

Jack is friendly, easygoing, smart, full of energy, and an overall great companion and guests love him for his quiet nature. “I  always hear from guests how well trained and behaved he is. He rarely leaves my side, and he is great with other dogs and children,” says Latner.

Lone Star Court does not allow pets in the hotel rooms, but our visitors are welcome to bring their pets to the hotel’s public areas including The Feed Store, the courtyard and lounging areas, and outdoor dining area at The Water Trough.

Jack’s favorite spot to hang out at the hotel is on a cozy padded bench outside the front office that overlooks the entire outdoor courtyard or you might see him ridinlscbenchg along  in the golf cart for property tours. His favorite thing to chew on is a deer antler as well as tree bark and paper. Latner says: “Having Jack here is indicative of our culture. The hotel’s unique design and open courtyard area were created to encourage guests to enjoy each other’s company, just as used to happen at the old-fashioned motor courts Lone Star Court was inspired by.”
