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 great idea!  I have never done anything fun with pumpkins besides the regular carving.  Thanks!

Ok now this is the coolest idea!  The coolest thing we have done is just carve them and light them up. We do some fun designs though. =)

I don't even buy pumpkins  =(  

We don't bother to carve because they go bad so fast here in FL.  I buy canned pumpkin for all my cooking needs.
