If you're one of the lucky people to have been invited to a Friendsgiving celebration, get ready to have a good time. This approach to Thanksgiving has been gaining traction in recent years, and with it comes a whole new set of traditions to blend in with the old. You may be entreated to bring a dish that reflects your culture or ethnic background. You may be asked to provide a side item that puts a new twist on a classic holiday dish. Friendsgiving may seem more like a casual cocktail party or mixer, with neighbors, friends, co-workers, teachers and more mingling and getting to know each other, even as they're gathered in the same spirit as at traditional Thanksgiving.

One of Thanksgiving's most enduring symbols is the cornucopia, an expression of the harvest that came from Greek mythology. While in that case it was a goat horn that Zeus accidentally broke off, today the cornucopia is typically represented as a basket full of the fruits of the season's harvest. What hasn't changed? The ancient cornucopia and the modern one both symbolize abundance, the results of our endeavors over the growing season, and the nourishment we take from our hearths and homes.
Is it any surprise then that we've made cornucopias into Thanksgiving centerpieces? Not to us at Nanz & Kraft Florists. Read More about Glorious Cornucopia Centerpieces and More »
