Fall Entertaining: Pumpkins & Gourds


How cute is this entertaining idea from Better Homes and Gardens? Add some fall festivity to the table by serving snacks in the gourds, rather than surrounded by them! I love the detail it adds to the table.

Wouldn’t it be even more fun to make a fall soup and serve it to each guest in one of those gourds? Or to get even more creative, I would serve a dip in the cut-out gourd and then do the same thing to a large pumpkin, line it with saran wrap and use it as a chip bowl. And then use the pumpkin bowl for Halloween candy. And just as I was wondering how a hollow pumpkin would work as a punch bowl… I found one on Pinterest, also from Better Homes and Gardens!


I love these festive ideas – and how relatively simple they are to make!

What other ideas do you have for hollow pumpkins and gourds?
