Everything You Need to Host a Pumpkin-Carving Party

The best thing about Halloween being on a Saturday this year is that fans of the holiday can celebrate two nights in row. On Friday, gather your nearest and dearest for a pumpkin-carving party. On All Hallow’s Eve, you’ll have the most festive front yard on the block. If you’ve never been to one, a pumpkin-carving party is just what it sounds like: You and your friends come together, carve pumpkins, drink a little sangria, eat a little chili, have an awesome time, and get everyone in the mood for Halloween. Wondering how to throw this seriously spirited soirée? I break it down below.
