There are two simple ways to use bleach to prevent pumpkins from rotting.
A bleach bath:
Give freshly carved pumpkins a bath in bleach water. You will want to use one teaspoon of bleach per gallon of water. Soak the pumpkins for a few hours.
If you do not feel like soaking your pumpkins in bleach you can spritz them daily with a bleach spray solution. Just make sure that you spray the inside as well as all carved parts daily. I recommend spritzing the pumpkins from time to time even if they are soaked in bleach.
Why Bleach works:
The water helps hydrate the pumpkins which prevents rotting. The bleach helps kill any bacteria and gets rid of any dirt which prevents molding, and further helps to keep the pumpkins from rotting.

1. Keep it simple, don't go crazy with frozen blended stuff or things that take a laboratory to get just right. Make a few simple drinks for your guests to choose from. I usually do things like my poison apple martini, pumpkin pie shot (which is a little more complex, but delicious) caramel apple martinis, and Irish coffees etc. I change it up every year!
2. Nothing glows under a black light except tonic water. Feel free to serve vodka or gin & tonics if you're using one and you and your guests like them, but don't believe the internet when it tells you things like blue curacao, Hyptnotic, apple pucker or Mt. Dew glow under a black light. We wasted hours of our time testing these beverages so that you don't have to! If you want a glowing effect for your cocktails but don't like tonics, buy some glow sticks or bracelets from the dollar store. Activate them and use them for swizzle sticks, or buy glow in the dark ones from the Halloween shop. BTW, Laundry soap will also glow, but probably not a good idea to make drinks with it!
3. Serve a few Autumn themed lighter items like hard ciders and pumpkin beer, witches brew wine, and of course apple cider and sodas.
4. Have fun decorating your bottles with these cool spooky stickers you can get from the Dollar Tree or any Halloween store. They say things like rat poison, witches brew and zombie juice, I add a small mailing label to the bottom and write what's in it so I can remember what's in what bottle. Decorate your bottles with a bit of cotton spider webs throw down an a orange, black or Halloween themed table cloth and scatter a few silk fall colored leaves and/or plastic spiders and rats from the dollar store over it.
