The Cornucopia

Autumnal Abundance Cornucopia

One of the more common symbols of Thanksgiving is the Cornucopia. The Cornucopia is also a strong symbol of a harvest festival. Mostly found now as wicker weaved horn shaped baskets, they are commonly used in Thanksgiving flower and fruit centerpieces for the holiday table.

The Cornucopia is also known as the “horn of plenty”. It originated from a curved goat’s horn filled with fruits and grains gifted to others. Story has it that in Greek legend, Amalthea – a goat, started it all by breaking off one of its horns and offering it up to the Greek God Zeus as a sign of reverence and Zeus showed his appreciation by creating the star constellation we know as the Capricorn.

Come the Thanksgiving season, you will find many tables adorned in various decorated flower Cornucopias. Is it tradition for your table or mantle to be dressed with a Cornucopia during the Thanksgiving Holiday? Brant Florist has a wide array of various Cornucopia flower decorations for your holiday tables or mantle. Here are just a few of them:

Thanksgiving for those Abroad


Thanksgiving is just days away for those who reside in America as well as though who live abroad but still celebrate the traditional American Thanksgiving holiday. If you have loved ones who currently live abroad and can’t be home for Thanksgiving, Brant Florist can help you send your love across the world.

It is hard being away from home and living in a different country, especially when it comes to the holidays. A great way to close the miles between you and your abroad loved one is to send them a feel of Thanksgiving with a wonderful Thanksgiving fruit basket or a wonderful Thanksgiving flower arrangement.

Thanksgiving is about love, family gathering, and celebrating what all we are thankful for, traditionally the harvest of the season, which was shared with all. When you have a loved one not able to partake in such a loving holiday, you can bet they are missing home and family. Show that loved one, regardless of the miles that separate that they are not forgotten, that you are thankful for them being in your life, even if afar, and show them they are loved. A warm Thanksgiving fruit basket or Thanksgiving flower arrangement can give them that sense of belonging and lessening their longing to be with loved ones they miss.
