Tomorrow will be the First of October, which means Halloween is right around the corner.
I have many childhood memories of Halloween parties at school (yeah, they've banned those now as to not "offend" anyone), dressing up for trick-or-treat and of course pumpkin carving. Each year I used to think I was going to create a masterpiece. Alas that never happened. My pumpkins usually looked sad with simple triangle cut outs for the eyes & nose and boxy looking teeth.
Several years ago on the Food Network they had one of their challenge shows with giant pumpkin carvers. I was completely amazed at what they could do with them. It got to where I looked forward to the new challenge show each October.
Sadly I'll miss it this year (but love the savings on my cable TV bill!). Instead I went searching for some other awesome pumpkins on the web that I could share with y'all. All the photos below are from Masterpiecepumpkins.com. Hope you enjoy them and why not try something different with your pumpkin carving this year. :)
