A pumpkin-carving table complete with tools, waste bins, and flame-free illuminators makes it easy for guests to get into the spirit. You can save the pumpkin seeds for roasting, plus the jack-o’-lanterns, once carved, can decorate your party.
Devoting an area for photo-taking is easy and gets guests excited to snap and share images of themselves having a great time (courtesy of you).
