Here’s a twist on the Cornucopia for your Thanksgiving table. An edible centerpiece which is simply a display fruit and nuts in a large bowl as your symbol of abundance and plentiful harvest this year. It can also double as a dessert option for those who are watching what they eat.
- Large bowl – I used an antique wooden bowl but a ceramic or silver bowl would work great too
- Fruits and nuts in various colors and sizes
- Floral foam block
- Floral picks
I started by covering the bowl with some plastic wrap to protect both the bowl and the fruit. Then I added a piece of floral foam. I left the plastic on it to for protection but that isn’t really necessary.
Next I inserted some floral picks into some of the fruit and then inserted them into the floral foam on an angle.
Then I placed some of the smaller fruit and nuts around the floral foam base and arranged the rest of the fruit on top. I finished by laying a bunch of grapes on top and tucking the nuts in here or there.
It looks great on the table and is easily removed for dinner but don’t forget to bring it back after, along with a nut cracker, for everyone to enjoy.
