The History Behind The Thanksgiving Cornucopia

A cornucopia is a common sight on many Thanksgiving dinner tables throughout America. At this time of the year, you're likely to see wicker cornucopias of all sizes filled to overflowing with apples, grapes, pears, leaves, and even small pumpkins. Some people get really creative filling their cornucopias with flowers, candy, or colorful veggies! I have a homemade cornucopia that I put on my Thanksgiving table every year. It's made of raffia, and I love filling it with sedums, yellow mums, and other fall blooms. Also, I've found that a small cornucopia filled with colorful blooms makes an appealing gift for the host of a holiday party. Have you ever wondered why cornucopias are so closely connected with the Thanksgiving holiday? If you have, this week's post is just for you. Enjoy!
