The cornucopia is a time-honored symbol of abundance, long associated with Thanksgiving. However, it was symbolic well before this holiday existed. The word ‘cornucopia’ actually dates back to the 5th century BC. It derives from two Latin words: “cornu,” meaning horn (as in the name of that one-horned creature, the “unicorn”) and “copia,” meaning plenty (a relative of such words as “copious” and “copy”). Thus, “cornucopia” literally means horn of plenty, and the names are used interchangeably. It was usually depicted as a curved goat’s horn, filled to overflowing with fruit and grain, but could actually have been filled with whatever the owner wished.

Today, the cornucopia often finds its way to the Thanksgiving table as a centerpiece. Typically, it’s in the form of a woven, slightly curving, conical basket that is filled to overflowing with fresh flowers and/or fruits and vegetables. Many of our customers have such a basket that they bring annually to Richardson's Flowers-to be filled anew with a harvest of seasonal flowers. If you don’t have a cornucopia of your own already, let our talented designers create one just for you that can become part of your family's holiday traditions.

Our horn of plenty centerpieces are created with a lush and varied assortment of flowers. We also add textural contrast to our designs with dried wheat, cattails, dark lotus pods and cinnamon sticks. Leave it up to our team to be creative with beautiful fall flowers to grace your table this Thanksgiving.

If you can’t make it back to the family homestead for Thanksgiving dinner this year, you can trust us to send a seasonal fall arrangement anywhere in the world using one of our preferred florists. Let your family and friends know that you are thinking about them by sending flowers-the perfect symbol of gratitude for all that we have-including each other. 

The staff at Richardson's Flowers wishes you and yours a very HappyThanksgiving!
