Pumpkin Carving Party Ideas

Start a new party tradition this Halloween with a Pumpkin Carving Party. The premise is simple and is a great reason to bring your family and friends together to celebrate. Everyone needs a jack-o-lantern to welcome trick-or-treaters on Halloween. It lets them know that they are welcome to come and ask for candy with the traditional greeting.

Send invitations to your guests with a handcrafted invite in the shape of a pumpkin. Get your children to help decorating the faces with different shapes. Write the party details on the back and ask your guests to BYOP (Bring Your Own Pumpkin). 

Decorating is easy. You will need to have some tables that are covered in plastic or old newspaper, as well as some trash cans. It is also a good idea to have some pumpkin carving tools, an inspiration book, and some pencils. You will also want to have some sealable bags in case people want to take their pumpkin seeds home to roast later.

This is definitely a party that you will want to be spending time with your guests and not in the kitchen. Make life easy by ordering a party size pizza or a tray of submarine sandwiches. Potato chips, nachos and salsa, soda pop, and pumpkin pie are the perfect way to round out the menu.

Get some door prizes and when everyone is done carving their pumpkins, it is time to judge them. Have some preset categories and let everyone vote on the pumpkin that fits the best. Here are some ideas to get you started: most creative, scariest, tamest, and most traditional. 

Your guests will love the Pumpkin Carving Party and look forward to it every year.
