Cornucopias: A Thanksgiving tradition

A staple Thanksgiving tradition, the cornucopia.

The cornucopia or "horn of plenty" is a symbol of abundance and nourishment, commonly a large horn-shaped container overflowing with produce, flowers, nuts, and other edibles.

It has been used since antiquity as a show of fertility, fortune and abundance that has become a Thanksgiving tradition. It started as a hollowed out ram or sheep horn and has changed over the years into a hollowed out woven basket.  

At Janda Florist we offer cornucopias spilling with abundant autumn flowers and accents. We can even color coordinate it to your home decor. Looking for an extra flourish? We excel at the "little extras."

We have accents to suit the season such as cattails, wheat, leaves, feathers, bittersweet, gourds and pumpkins. We also have traditional long and low candle centerpieces as well as fun and festive pumpkin arrangements.

Looking for a visual? Check out our website at www.jandaflorist.com or go onto our Facebook page www.facebook.com/jandaflorist to see some photos of the season. Or simply stop by the store. We will even be open on Thanksgiving Day for those last minute centerpieces and bouquets to go!
