I love this pumpkin because you can decorate with it for Halloween, as well as Thanksgiving. You can make it into a table center piece or have it on your front porch. All you have to do is cut a hole in the top and clean out the insides. The better you clean it out, the longer it will last. Then you can pop a plant into it. I used mums because they are inexpensive and they bring in a lot of color.
