Thanksgiving centerpieces under $50
If it’s your year to host the annual Thanksgiving gathering, chances are you’re focused now on the important matters: roast or smoke the bird, blueberry or strawberry rhubarb pie, homemade or store-bought cranberry sauce.
But here’s something you can check off your list right away: The centerpiece on the table you’ll all gather around. Trust us, if it’s special enough, nobody will notice the turkey is a bit dry.
Sure, you can put a pumpkin in the middle of the table, or fill a vase full of yellow and orange blooms. But for very little money, you take that centerpiece up a notch. Remember to keep your work of art low, so your guests’ view isn’t obscure. And you’ll want to leave plenty of room on the table for the relish tray, rolls, and other essentials.
We’ve checked out a few Thanksgiving centerpieces under $50 that will wow your guests:
