Pumpkin Bowls

Broaden your horizons when it comes to decorating with pumpkins

A pumpkin is the perfect decoration for fall, so why not find a use for them other than just carving them and setting them on the stoop?

A small pumpkin can be hollowed out, cleaned, and used as a bowl for serving individual soups or desserts at a dinner party. Or, a larger one can even hold dips or act as a punchbowl — try filling it with homemade Pumpkin Pie Nogg.

Or, if you don't feel like whipping up your own concoction, a large pumpkin can also serve as a beer bucket: cut a large opening on top for all the beer bottles and cans.

To make a creative, seasonal centerpiece, use a pumpkin as the perfect fall-themed vase.

Here is a helpful guide on how to carve a pumpkin bowl.
