Directions: Harvest Cornucopia

Article excerpt

Our arrangement is made from an 18inch cornucopia basket, available from craft stores or florists. For a smaller centerpiece, use a l6- or 14-inch basket. Various vegetables can be glued to the top and sides of the basket, but delicate, lacy leaves like kale work best on the rim. Long, spindly vegetables-such as string beans or asparagus-are effective for the tail. Use fresh flowers of your choice.
