LocalHarvest Stores - Organic Produce Delivered Right to Your Door

Kwanzaa decorations include fruits and vegetables laid out on a mkeka (straw mat or cloth.) Specifically, you're going to need one ear of corn for each child in the family. If there are no kids, you'll just be using the 2 ears of corn. The corn goes on either side of the mkeka. They'll flank the Kinara, which is the candleholder with 7 candles, one per Kwanzaa principle. (phew!) The other fruits and vegetables go in the mazao (basket). Traditional inclusions are pumpkins, squash, bananas and sweet potatoes--and whatever else you like. Since these are seasonal, the LocalHarvest stores should have them available for home delivery, so that you can focus on the rest of your Kwanzaa decorations!
