Pumpkin Carving Party
Carving pumpkins is one of the most interactive Halloween activities, so throw your own party filled with delicious treats and whimsical decor.

Pumpkin Punch Bowl Tablescape
Fill this pumpkin vessel with dry ice for a smoldering display, or use it to serve punch (omitting the dry ice) and set it on a table surrounded by little pumpkins. Use branches in an urn or flower pot and affix little pumpkin throughout.
Pumpkin Candy Faces
Create a ghoulish Halloween candy face with a variety of candy, but be sure to warn children not to eat the candy on the face. Whatever jar you fill, use that candy to decorate the pumpkin.
Fill vases and hurricanes with snacks on the table and illuminate the table with pumpkin lanterns. Sugar pumpkins are small and have only the slightest ribbing. Those with flat bases are best.
