What could be more iconic than a cornucopia at Thanksgiving?
This is the 2016 version here at Sweetwater.
I used a collection of artificial fruits and vegetables
with bittersweet, magnolia leaves and pheasant feather accents.
It is finished off with a burlap bow.
I have blogged about arranging a cornucopia in past years….so if you are interested in a tutorial of sorts, click here: Tips for Arranging a Cornucopia.
Setting the Cornucopia on a tray or basket is a simple way to give your arrangement some substance.
Using a tray makes it look like the stuff is tumbling out “on purpose”.
I used raffia as the fill this year.
There were enough items to fill the opening and the basket.
If you don’t have as many items, you can use a block of dry floral foam and insert picks into your fruits etc.
A piece of burlap or other fabric can cover the foam block.
