Don’t forget to include BYOP (bring your own pumpkin!) on your invitations.
Hang Halloween bunting and bright spiderweb fans as simple but spirited decorations.
Outline each guest’s work space with chalk on a craft paper tablecloth.
Place carving caddies in the center of the table with two sets of tools for guests to share.
Set out individual dishes of candy corn for a seasonal treat guests will love.
Put a big bucket near the middle of the table for collecting pumpkin innards.
Ask guests to save the pumpkin seeds for roasting (and eating later in the party!). Just wash them off, toss with oil and salt, and bake at 300 degrees for 45 minutes. Yum!
