Who says Halloween is just for kids?! A pumpkin carving party is just what the doctor ordered for us adults. Get together with your friends the weekend before Halloween to host the festivities – all you need are some decorations, plenty of libations and snacks, and carving tools. Guests can BYOP (bring your own pumpkin) for ease while you provide the necessities, like these twenty things. Here's how to make it happen!
Set the Scene
Welcome guests by adding some Halloween decor to your space – I especially love a Happy Halloween sign on the door and paper decorations hung inside. But if this is your favourite holiday don't stop there! Add some spirit to the front and back garden and everywhere you guests might set foot during the evening.
Set out Tools
Have plenty of pumpkin carving kits available for your artists. Don't forget a few carving knives on hand for removing lids, creative templates to trace, and scoops for pulling out the gooey guts. You can also set out a selection of craft supplies for extra embellishments.
Send Them Away Happy
Favours are my favourite part of a good party. Send your pumpkin carving party guests away with a little something for themselves – a party bag full of goodies that will make the evening all the sweeter.
