I don't know how pumpkin carving goes at your house but at mine I empty the pumpkins of their innards and my husband carves the pumpkins. I then roast all of the pumpkin seeds (thankfully this is done ONCE a year) and we enjoy our beautiful pumpkins Halloween night.
Ever since I first saw this picture of a pumpkin "fire pit" I've wanted to create it for a fall party at my home. The only thing holding me back is the number of pumpkins I would have to "gut". This beautiful pumpkin "fire pit" is a great idea for your fall or Halloween party. Please send me pictures if you recreate this. I would love to post your efforts!
