Pumpkin carving party ideas

1110_pumpkinParty_001-2
I like to carve pumpkins for Halloween—so much so, that when my kids were younger, I’d let all three of them carve their own pumpkins and then I’d buy an extra one for myself so that I could carve my own. That’s four pumpkins-worth of slimy, stringy, orange-y goop getting flung around my kitchen. I’ve always thought that if you’re going to make a mess, you might as well go all the way.

But that’s nothing. One of my team members here at Pear Tree has a neighbor who throws a pumpkin carving party every year for the whole neighborhood. They clean out their heated garage, put up some orange lights and Halloween decorations, and line the floor with a plastic tarp. (Wish I’d thought of that.) They provide the kid-friendly carving tools, but it’s BYOP—Bring Your Own Pumpkin.
