Pumpkin Bowls and Other Dinnerware

Updated on January 16, 2015

Decorating Your Table with Everything Pumpkin!

To many, nothing speaks of Halloween and Autumn like pumpkin...but you can have your dinnerware any time of the year. It will never be out of season!

In new Zealand Halloween is actually in spring so while we have pumpkins they are not plentiful! Here's a chance for all those whose Halloween is in spring to have pumpkin on your table!

Pumpkin dinnerware is actually evergreen as it never goes out of season...it looks good any time of year!

Pumpkins Out of Season?

As I mentioned before in New Zealand we are experiencing our spring season and pumpkins are not available in quantity. And certainly nothing like the sizes I see used in the USA! Heaven knows how you would carve these little pumpkins...they are so hard skinned! So hard skinned in fact that we often cook the pumpkin with the skin on!

New Zealand pumpkins have a grey skin rather than the orange we see so plentiful in the States. This picture is one I took while preparing for a recipe 'Swirled Chocolate-Pumpkin Brownies' which can be found on my Halloween Book Review lens.

The solution for a pumpkin Halloween? Beautiful dinnerware, that's what!

Is Halloween in Fall (Autumn) for you?

A hand painted ceramic piece which also has a ladle which is sold separately.

Why not use it as a cookie jar when you are not using it as a soup tureen? Just an idea! I'm all for multi purpose...

It is also microwave and dishwasher safe.

Water Pitcher

This hand painted water jug would grace any table. It has been designed by Christian artists Carla Grogan. Here Carla is inspired by the autumn harvest in depicting a pumpkin and quoting from Psalm 92.1...Share the harvest bounty with your guests.

Like Le Creuset (which I use in my kitchen) Staub is also made in France. It appears to be similar in quality.

The design was developed with consultation of world renown chef Paul Bocuse. The cookware is suited to most cooking surfaces, including induction and the knobs are heat resistant for use in the oven.

I love using my Le Creuset pots and pans and think this is just gorgeous!

Although hand washing is recommended I have been known to stack my cookware in the dishwasher! It is suited to induction cooking and is oven safe.

These famous cast iron pots are made in France.

Do you like to follow your dinner with tea or coffee or something else?

This cute little set will start your evening off with style and in keeping to the theme of the evening. While it is for a dip you could add it to the dining table with a prepared dressing, mustard or sauce....something a bit thicker than the usual dressing mind you otherwise the squirrel won't hold the contents from bowl to plate!

      Crikey, I had no idea you could do so many things with a pumpkin. Some of those things are truly beautiful and very creative.

      Having pumpkin soup in a pumpkin container would be really cool. Fun to decorate with a bit of pumpkin stuff for the season.

      Lovely collection of bowls and dinnerware. They are perfect and very festive for the fall season. In Canada, we celebrate Halloween on October 31st and have an overwhelming supply of pumpkins.
