Have you seen these beautiful charger plates at Walmart? They are plastic but look so elegant and festive. By adding some vinyl lettering they are turned into a beautiful way to express thanks.
They are currently on sale for $2 each at my local Walmart. At that price why not get some for your Thanksgiving table too.
(I was not compensated in any way to promote these plates. I just wanted to pass along the info for you thrifty shoppers.)
