The perfect pumpkin

Friday, October 2nd, 2009

Fall is here and the holidays will be here before you know it. Halloween is less than a month away and pumpkin patches are getting their pumpkins ready.

Pumpkins typically make their first appearance in people’s homes for Halloween. Going to the store or a pumpkin patch to pick out the perfect pumpkin for carving is a tradition for both children and adults. Once they find the perfect one, it is time to decide what to carve on the pumpkin. Many people choose to go with the traditional face jack-o-lanterns, but some choose to carve more intricate designs like haunted houses, bats, ghosts, or other Halloween scenes.


Carving jack-o-lanterns can be a family or social activity. Children can scoop out the seeds of the pumpkin and parents can help their children with the carving. After the pumpkins are carved, and the jack-o-lanterns are complete, you can take a photo of the artist with their pumpkin creation. The perfect place for displaying this photo is in our Pumpkin Patch picture frame. This personalized frame can be kept out as a decoration all throughout the Halloween and Thanksgiving season.
