History of Cornucopia excerpted from Wikipedia:
[The cornucopia (Latin: Cornu Copiae) is a symbol of food and abundance dating back to the 5th century BC, also referred to as horn ‘o’ plenty, Horn of Amalthea, and harvest cone…
In modern depiction, the cornucopia is typically a hollow, horn-shaped wicker basket typically filled with various kinds of festive fruit and vegetables. In North America, the cornucopia has come to be associated with Thanksgiving and the harvest.]
I have given my cornucopia a slight twist – I filled it with a floral arrangement accented by berries and real pheasant feathers:
This cornucopia is one of my favorite pieces from the Spode Woodland collection. I have had it for quite a few years, and it sometimes stays as a regular fixture in my home decor even beyond the fall/winter seasons. Fall is my husband’s favorite season, and I am always anxious to try out fall things to make the season special for him. The only thing that I am really lacking is a fall-theme quilt — one of these days, I promise myself. :)
Thank you for looking at my cornucopia. I hope you have a bountiful day!
