Since their last name started with an A, they carved some that looked like this.
I am sure that they looked wonderful for the outdoor evening celebration! This idea got me thinking, you could use this idea for Halloween by carving the letters BOO (one in each pumpkin) and setting them out in a row. Or, if you have a family member who has a birthday this time of year, you could spell out their name. And, if you purchase craft pumpkins you could save them to use year after year.
