Basically, the symbol of Thanksgiving: Cornucopia! Actually, this symbol dates back to ancient times. The Latin word “Cornu” means horn, and “Copia” means plenty. The goat nurse of Zeus, Amalthea feed baby Zeus with her horns so everytime Zeus breaks her horn, she gave him a plenty amount of food. Thus became the Cornucopia symbol of abundance that is related to the horns. No doubt that it is a catchy décor for tables during Thanksgiving. If you want to make your own Cornucopia this year, just visit The Everyday Farmhouse for details.
Minimalist Table Settings
You don’t need to fill the table out with flashy accessories or overdone settings. It is about some intimacy, so we think that minimalism fit the ambiance perfectly. You can choose the natural hues for your setting and add some greenery. If you want to get inspired by some simple but elegant tableware, we recommend you to visit Hoagard’s collection.
DIY Pinecone Wreath
We believe the rustic and cottage-inspired pinecone wreath is never out of fashion! Just gather different sizes of pinecones or if you don’t have that chance, simply order them online. You need a wreath-form wire and hot glue gun as well. After grouping the cones, glue a circle of smaller pines onto the inner wire. Then glue the bigger ones onto the outer wire. Green branches and led lights will even embellish your handmade wreath as well!
