Plan it at least 2 weeks prior to Halloween. The whole purpose of the party is to carve pumpkins, so you want to have time to enjoy them. Not too far in advance, though, because they can rot.
Include neighbors and friends so you have plenty of kids, and plenty of adults. The adults are good helpers with the heavy pumpkin-lifting and hard carving.
Plan other activities, not just carving. Consider a craft station, yummy Halloween food, and perhaps a contest of some kind.
