After going into the Lumpy Pumpkin, go to the second floor balcony where you can see the chandelier. Dash and roll towards the railing, and the chandelier should be swinging once you hit it. Keep rolling towards the railing until a cutscene shows that you've smashed the chandelier, dropping rupees and a Piece of Heart.

At this point, talking to an angry Pumm on the ground floor of the Lumpy Pumpkin after you've smashed the chandelier will trigger the side quest. He will ask you to do some tasks to help compensate for his broken chandelier.

Job 1: Deliver Pumpkin Soup to the Knight Commander

Take the bottle of soup to Eagus at the Sparring Hall at Skyloft, which is located just Northwest of the Knight's Academy (where you obtained the Practice Sword).

Carefully shift your weight

The key to not dropping any pumpkins is to move forward towards your left, then take a step to the right so the pumpkins all start to shift right. Once they do, continue forward and left until you get to the storage room.
