A Classic Cornucopia for Thanskgiving

One of the most recognizable symbols of Thanksgiving is the cornucopia, a horn-shaped container usually filled with fruit. The cornucopia has been around since antiquity, where it appeared in myths and later in art. Meant to represent the abundance, this emblem was brought to the table and displayed as a sign that the harvest had been fruitful that year.

Today, you’ll see all manner of cornucopia horns – usually baskets – in stores, just waiting for you to stuff them full with seasonal decor. But at The Flower Bucket, we have a better idea. We think the best cornucopias are the ones overflowing with fresh flowers.

A floral cornucopia does everything the classic version does, just better. Flowers reflect abundance just as much as pretty fruit, for starters. And then there’s texture, scent and color – a veritable rainbow of hues to choose from. Our Classic Cornucopia demonstrates just how lush and rich a bloom-filled cornucopia can be.

Roses, sunflowers, daises and other seasonal beauties look just lovely spilling from this horn, which could make a fabulous centerpiece for the Thanksgiving table or decorate a buffet in the dining area. This is a conversation piece, a tribute to the holiday and a focal point all in one, and the horn basket can be used again and again. A floral cornucopia has so much presence that you won’t need to worry too much about bringing in other decor, too.

As we gather together to give thanks and count our blessings, it’s nice to have a traditional symbol of Thanksgiving there in front of us. We here at The Flower Bucket are certain that once you introduce one to your table, you’ll want one every year thereafter.
