Halloween Pumpkin Carving Party

Halloween Decorative Jack o Lanterns, on Amazon


Invite four or five friends over for dinner and an evening of festive pumpkin carving.


Encourage guests to dress casual, as they might get scooped pumpkin guts all over their clothing. Provide aprons if possible. Guests should bring their own chosen pumpkins, but you should have a couple extras on hand just in case.

Provide the carving tools, stencils and patterns so your guests will have everything they need to work. Also have a few tealight candles on hand to light the pumpkins temporarily for show.

At the end of the night, photograph each guest with their lit pumpkin.
