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?

My son took a pumpkin to school and they painted them blue and made them into the globe then glued all the land on there.

We just decorate them, but my SIL and brother one year for Thanksgiving served pumpkin or some kind of soup in small pumpkins. It was sooo cute!
