Carving-challenged? Short on time?  Here's a simple and chic way to dress up your pumpkins ... encase them in lace. 

For more clever, no-carve pumpkin decorating ideas check out these posts on PopSugar and Country Living.  Quite a few you can whip together just before trick-or-treaters start knocking on your door this evening. (I particularly like the black bejeweled, Potato Head and simple white with silver writing designs.)  Happy Halloween!
