Holiday centerpieces look great, taste better

With everyone feeling the pinch from the current economic situation, Kenneth Brown, a Los Angeles designer and the star of HGTV’s “reDesign” and TLC’s “Over Designed,” has come up with a simple, fast, affordable and edible way to decorate your table for Thanksgiving dinner.

All of the ingredients needed to create Brown’s edible arrangements can be purchased while you’re shopping for the turkey.

While adding beauty to holiday events, the centerpieces double as money savers because you can eat the arrangements after the party.

Each one Brown’s four arrangements takes less than 10 minutes to create, using just wooden skewers to hold the pieces together.
