Here is an easy and super-cute idea for your autumn dinner table from HGTV. What I love most about autumn is that there are so many beautiful and colorful fruits and vegetables you can use to make vases and even serving dishes. So festive!

What You Will Need:

  • 3 small butternut squash, each a slightly different height
  • 1 iced tea spoon
  • chef’s knife
  • cutting board
  • fall flowers of your choice; such as sunflowers, dahlias, cockscombs, mums, and don’t forget to put some stalks/seed heads from ornamental grasses to add height!

To Cut and Hollow Out Butternut Squash

  • On a cutting board, slice off the top of the butternut squash with a chef’s knife .
  • With a long-handled spoon (such as an iced tea spoon), make a ring around the inside of the squash, leaving about a 1/2-inch border around the outside of the squash.
  • Using the spoon, hollow out the squash until you reach the seeds at the bottom.
  • Turn the squash upside down, tapping on the cutting board until free of seeds. Repeat with remaining squash.
  • Discard top and reserve seeds for another use.
