Pumpkin Carving Party

The pumpkin carving party theme was inspired by the following quote:

Pumpkins are a curious thing,
They don't dance and they don't sing.

They don't have hair, they don't meow,
They don't look much like a cow.

They just sit around all day,
Out in the fields among the hay,

Sometimes they gather by the stable,
Sometimes they end up on the kitchen table.

But what brings a pumpkin to full life,
Is a guided hand with a carving knife.
~ Suzy Wolf
