We were pumpkin carving at the weekend and it's not the easiest thing in the world.
A handy tip: those child friendly pumpkin carving packs aren't so adult friendly when you stab your pumpkin covered, slippery hand with them.
The one good thing about carving pumpkins yourself is sticking the seeds in to roast with some brown sugar, salt and cinnamon.. makes the bleeding hands more worthwhile.
But let's face it - not that many of us have the time or the artistic skills to create truly terrifying pumpkins without damaging ourselves so why not take up the offer of having them carved for you - it's the handy kind of thing that you'll probably only find in London after all. So you might as well take advantage.
Just like most things now you can order a pre-carved pumpkin straight to your door then take all the glory when friends marvel at your un-plastered fingers and wonderfully scary fruit offering (yes a pumpkin is classed as a fruit).
Here's all the details:
To celebrate the spookiest day of the year, courier service Jinn has announced the launch of the UK’s first, limited-edition Pumpkin Carvery delivery. Available from October 26th, Londoners can enjoy a hassle-free Halloween by ordering a professionally carved pumpkin via Jinn’s app to be delivered straight to their door in under an hour.
With the detail of pumpkin designs getting bigger and better every year, Jinn’s Pumpkin Carvery service allows consumers to ‘keep up with the Joneses’ and be the envy of their street with carved creations to out-spook the neighbours. Teaming up with both Fulham-based merchant Lavender Green Flowers and art studio Sand In Your Eye, Jinn is offering these spook-tacular limited edition packages starting from £40.
Mario Navarro, CEO of Jinn, said: “Jinn offers users access to the best of their city in under an hour and this Halloween we are showcasing the diversity of our service with the carved pumpkin offering, available to order on our app. As a nation, we are steadily spending more over festive periods, so this year we are enabling customers to be the beastliest on their block”.
