Try a Classic Cornucopia Centerpiece

From among our many Thanksgiving floral arrangements, we at Campbell’s Flowers have plucked the beloved cornucopia to hold up as the perfect centerpiece. Why?

The horn of plenty has been around since Zeus accidentally broke off the horn of the she-goat that was nursing him. That myth helped establish the cornucopia as emblematic of sustenance and nourishment. More stories followed, as did the act of bringing a goat horn to the table and filling it with the fruits of that season’s harvest. Today, we not only fill our cornucopias (now horn-shaped baskets) with food, we fill them with flowers. In essence, when you bring a cornucopia to your table, you’re preserving a symbol of the harvest and abundance that has been around since antiquity.

We believe a centerpiece should be visually arresting, since it’s meant to be looked at by everyone at the table. If an arrangement is also a conversation piece, bonus points. Scale matters, as your guests need to be able to see each other while they chat during dinner. And of course, the flowers should represent the vivid hues of the season. Enter our Harvest Home Cornucopia, which hits all of these marks.

Orange roses, eucalyptus, lilies, greens and other seasonal florals spill forth from a classic horn basket. This piece can stay at the heart of the table all through dinner, or poised on the buffet during. It’s lush with the colors of Fall and would look great with a few small candles nestled around it.

Let us at Campbell’s Flowers help you adorn your table with a lavish cornucopia for that classic Thanksgiving look.
