In fact, everyone was so pleased with the amazing pumpkins that they threw a party to celebrate.
Of course, the party was pumpkin-themed.
Milngavie Manor’s Wellbeing and Lifestyle Coach Morag Scott said everyone loved the very special way to celebrate Halloween.
She said: “It was lovely to see staff and residents in the lounge, and there was such a nice buzz about the home.
“Pumpkin carving is such a lovely tradition, it’s just a shame that they don’t last long.”
The party included pumpkin golf, hoop and bean bag games with witch/ghost cones, and it all ended with a parcel-the-parcel and cuppa and cake.
Morag added, “There was a lot of laughter, and who would have thought you could play pumpkin golf – and in the comfort of your own home!”
The pumpkins at Milngavie Manor included scary and funny pumpkin faces with zipper mouths as well as some gleefully smiling.
