A Plethora of Pumpkins

The ooey-gooey-slimy insides of a pumpkin aren’t for everyone and so carving a jack-o-lantern just might not be your thing.  But does that mean you can’t enjoy Halloween and take advantage of the big, beautiful orange orbs we have all over the market?  Absolutely not!  Maybe you want to do something different than your tried-and-true triangle-eyes.  Or perhaps you’re in an all-out-one-upping with your neighbor.   Whatever the reason, we’re here to tell you that there are lots of fun things to do with pumpkins: from painted pumpkins to party coolers, talking pumpkins too!

Lace Pumpkin

Looking for neat, new deck decor this Halloween?  Pop by the dollar store and pick up some black spider lace, wrap it around a pumpkin (we particularly like the black on white for this effect) and voila!  A quick (and clean) variation on the carved pumpkin!

Painted Pumpkins

Or, if you’re looking for something a little more elegant, pick up some spray paint, tape off intricate designs, polka-dots, or spooky messages and save yourself the carving altogether.  You can even paint the mini pumpkins for festive centerpieces for your devilish dinner party.

Pumpkin Party Cooler

And while you’re in dinner party mode, offer up your ghoulish guests a beverage in an easily-hollowed-out pumpkin for a drink cooler.

Pumpkin Collage

Or hollow out smaller pumpkins to use as bowls or vessels… you can make your party prep even easier by swinging by The Stock and Sauce Co. for all of your dips and soups!

Talking Pumpkin

And if you’re really in the spooky spirit, place the parents’ unit of a baby monitor inside a carved pumpkin and then speak into the transmitter when your guests arrive.  Eeek!
