Speaking of Centerpieces . . .

. . . wouldn't it be cool if they just grew on trees?

Or maybe on vines?  Huge, volunteer vines that were the result of last year's carelessness?

I'm not sure the several months of an unkempt front yard was worth the $3 worth of gourds it yielded, but it is pretty cool that we grew them ourselves.  Even if it was an accident.
