No bucket? No problem. We used a large pumpkin to make an ice bucket for one of our favorite white wines, and it made us wonder how we didn’t think of it sooner. While it serves its primary purpose — to keep your wine cold — it also makes a fantastic Halloween or Thanksgiving centerpiece. You can even create a virgin version filled with soda cans for the kids table.
