It’s pumpkin picking season and here is a great idea for a way to chill your favorite beverages!
All you need to do is cut the top third off of a large pumpkin and scrape out all of the seeds and pulp. Next, line the pumpkin with a glass or plastic bowl and fill with ice. Add your favorite beverages and you have a creative and festive way to serve your guests!

It seems like there are endless way to use mason jars. Here is a really fun idea from planprovision.com for a simple fall decoration or for use at a fall wedding or rehearsal dinner table.
Gather up fall leaves from your backyard or from a local park. Artificial leaves from your local craft store will work too. Use Mod Podge to adhere (decoupage) the leaves to mason jars. You can use any size, but be sure you can insert a candle. Real candles or led candles will work to give a soft glow and fall feel to any tablescape.
Thanks to planprovision for the detailed instructions and photos.
