Use a small pumpkin as a flower vase.

Choose a pumpkin that is stable when it’s sitting on a table. You don’t want it rocking. Cut off the top and scoop out the seeds just like you were making a jack-o-lantern. Fill it with water and arrange your flowers. You’ll need to cut the flower stems short.

Alternatively, you can choose a taller, skinny pumpkin that more resembles a vase, for taller stems.
