We all love to do it…no matter how old we are; carving pumpkins in October is a must!
As a child I would usually carve pumpkins with my family. Nowadays my friends and I love to turn pumpkin carving into a full-blown party, filled with delicious drinks and treats!
Here are some tips for throwing an October pumpkin carving party!
1. Find a perfect location. An area in your home or outdoors that can get messy but that also has a good fall ambiance. Lighting that area up with decorations and candles is always a plus!
2. A Pumpkin of course. Making sure you have all the necessary tools is a must. Pumpkin carving has also sometimes turned into pumpkin decorating. Make sure you have tools to carve but also things like paint and stencils for those that want to decorate their pumpkin instead.
3. Pumpkin flavored adult beverages. A nice Pumpkin Ale or Pumpkin Pie milkshake should help solve that problem.
4. SNACKS. Munching on something delicious always helps the creative mind. Our Cinnamon Sugar Halloween trail mix should do the trick!
