Perfect Pumpkin Punch Bowl
November 1, 2012 at 12:00 AM

Pumpkins - they are big, bright and have so many uses - pie, casseroles, jack-o-lanterns and more. But what about using pumpkins as the ultimate centerpiece for your fall friendly bash? Here's how to make the perfect pumpkin punch bowl.

Cut a pumpkin in half cross wise and scoop out the seeds. Save them for baking later! Line the pumpkin with tin foil and pour in some ice. Use the pumpkin bowl to chill drinks for a party.

Moms, what creative things have you done with pumpkins in year's past?

    What a fun idea! I have used them as vases for fall flowers, leaves, branches, etc.

    Cute idea to use the pumpkin as an ice holder.  I've heard of using them for soup, also.
