Pumpkins After Halloween....reuse them!

For those of you less inclined to make pumpkin soup or pumpkin pie from scratch, here are some creative uses for all those left over pumpkins from Halloween. Just because one holiday is over doesn't mean you can't continue to use pumpkins for the Thanksgiving Holiday this month. Add decor to your front entry by lining your walkway with pumpkins. Utilize the cinderella pumpkins, gourds and white pumpkins to the classic orange ones to evoke an Autumn scheme. The mini pumpkins, are great place-card holders at your holiday dinners or fill a large vase with several of them for a dramatic effect. You can also use your pumpkins as floral planters, simply empty them out, fill with soil and plant your favorite fall flowers or plants. A fun family use for all those pumpkins is to collect them, fill with electric candles and great a bonfire with friends. The point is not to waste all those beautiful pumpkins, you can find many ways to incorporate them into your decor post Halloween well into Thanksgiving!
