When A Treat Becomes a Trick


In case you’re thinking about — or already have — created a Halloween centerpiece using a real pumpkin, beware! Pumpkins are a natural fruit which means they continue to ripen (and rotten) as soon as you bring one home. And if you don’t take some precautions, your table could end up next week with a stain like this ….

The best way to enjoy your Halloween pumpkin is to first set it on a small plate, which you can disguise with dried leaves, acorns, pine needles, and colorful corn. Your table remains protected while you move on to your next holiday project!

Until next time,
