Who doesn't love decorating their home for fall? Picking out pumpkins: super fun! Carving them: not so much.

Let's face it, excited kids and sharp knives don't mix. Plus, ugh, the mess that comes with gutting a jack-o-lantern is something I could definitely skip. Every year I tell myself I'll toast those pumpkin seeds and turn those mushy, gushy insides into a delicious homemade pie. But guess what? By the time I'm done carving, I'm ready to chuck everything!

This season, why not consider going the no-carve route? You'll still end up with a spectacular creation but bypass the mess (and danger) carving can include!
