People all over California are celebrating the San Francisco Giants World Series win today, but with the fall entertaining season fast approaching, there will be plenty of other reasons to celebrate in the upcoming weeks as well.
One fun and incredibly easy way to brighten your serving table this season is a pumpkin ice bucket. We love the vibrant pop of color it brings to a holiday spread. (We also think the darkly elegant bottle of J Cuvée Brut looks great sitting in it.)
To make a pumpkin ice bucket, choose a large, wide pumpkin and cut off the top third with a serrated knife or small saw. Scrape out the pulp and seeds, then line it with a glass or plastic bowl to prevent it from becoming water logged. If you need extra room in your "bucket," just shave the inside with a spoon. Finish by filling the bowl with ice and bottled drinks.
Speaking of celebrations, have you heard about our Party In a Box?
