Wicker Baskets on Thanksgiving

The holidays are back in full swing, and it’s time to break out the wicker. Ok, that sounded weird but let’s just go with it. Now that Thanksgiving is right around the corner here’s a great idea to impress your friends and family and get everyone into the holiday spirit. Have you ever seen those wicker basket cornucopias that seem to be exploding with fruit from all sides? They look something like this (I always thought they kind of looked like the horn of a trumpet):

Do yourself a favor. Go down to your local arts and crafts store and pick up some of these bad boys for your friends and family. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how easy it

is to make these. The best part about making these wicker cornucopias for your loved ones is that not only are they a wonderful Thanksgiving gift, but they can be customized to each person’s tastes and likes. They can be stuffed with fruits and vegetables in a traditional fashion, or you can customize it and fill it with sweets like jams and chocolate bars. Another option that works great is to stuff the wicker cornucopia with cheeses, olives, meats, and other wine pairings. I find that these are the best received.

Another thing that makes the wicker cornucopias so versatile is that they make a great Thanksgiving gift for people of all sizes, from your kids all the way up to your grandparents. They are also relatively inexpensive, and if you find one large enough, it can also make for a great centerpiece for that special Thanksgiving dinner. Go ahead, make Thanksgiving memorable, and enjoy your wicker cornucopia. And remember! Cornucopia represents abundance, so it’s a great way to attract more abundance in your life. Happy Thanksgiving!
