Cornucopias have been around for thousands of years, with the earliest mention found in Greek and Roman mythology. The name comes from the Latin word cornu copiae, which means horn of abundance or horn of plenty.
In Western culture, the cornucopia has come to symbolize harvest and is a staple in Thanksgiving decor displays. Often seen with food overflowing from the mouth, cornucopias make great centerpieces and give us a visual reminder of everything we have to be thankful for.
Besides being used to display food, cornucopias are also used in home decor with faux florals like pumpkins, flowers, pinecones, and berries. A versatile piece in fall decor, they can be used anywhere in your home to achieve an autumnal feel.
