Sure, Halloween is for trick-or-treating and dressing your kids up in cute costumes, but we think the adults deserve a treat too! It’s National Pumpkin Day and we’re bringing you three creative ways to incorporate pumpkins into your next grown-up party!
1. Pumpkin Keg
Crafting this is very similar to crafting a jack-o-lantern – the only difference is that one is filled with wine! Buy a box/bag of your favorite wine and a pumpkin that’s large enough to fit the wine in. Cut the top off of your pumpkin and clean out the seeds and mushy insides. Carve a hole that’s big enough for the wine spout and push the spout through. Et voila – you now have a pumpkin keg. If you’re feeling especially creative, take some time to paint the pumpkin with some sort of indication as to what’s inside! Enjoy your hallo-wine!
Fill up a tub, or cauldron if you’re feeling especially witchy, with water and plenty of mini pumpkins. Set a timer for each player and have them hold their hands behind their backs while they bob for pumpkins. The player who gets the most pumpkins wins!
3. Pumpkin Spiced Latte Jell-O Shots
You either love or hate the Starbucks classic, but when you combine a Pumpkin Spiced Latte with a Jell-O Shot, you really can’t go wrong.
