Thanksgiving Dessert Table

Thanksgiving Dessert Display ideas from Cafe Pierrot in Sparta NJ

If you’re hosting Thanksgiving this year, you’ve probably started thinking about your table decorations. We put together a dessert display to show off all of our delicious pies and cookies, and we wanted to share all the supplies and tips so you can pull one together for your own party.

Depending on the number of guests you’re inviting, you may not think you need all of these desserts… but every get-together is better with multiple pies, cookies, and cakes! And this way, there’s something for everyone.

No Tricks, Only Treats!

halloween no tricks, only treats at Cafe Pierrot

Our bakers get really creative with Halloween every year, from new cookies and cakes to our pumpkin favorites. All of our products are listed on the Café Pierrot website, but we wanted to share a party we put together with simple decorations to inspire your own Halloween party!

Halloween Decorations

We started where always do: the Target dollar bins. You can’t beat their adorable signs and props for less than $5!

Easter Preparations

Easter is right around the corner (2.5 weeks!), and I know you’re thinking about the food and party decor.

Last year, we shared our Easter Dessert table with a few free printable signs. Go get those free signs! Here’s what you need for everything else!

Easter Dinner

This year, we’re offering two complete dinner catering options:

This meal is a favorite for a reason!

Easter Desserts

We added two new items from last year: a Bunny Face Cupcake Cake and a Bunny Face on a stick cookie! The cupcake cake is perfect for the kids at the table, and the bunny face cookie is a great gift as guests are leaving!

We love the decorated Easter Egg cookies for dessert, too.

Setting the Table

Spring and Easter equal bunnies and pastels. We love the trend of eggs in a vase or basket with tulips and other favorite flowers for a centerpiece…

  3. White Eggs in a basket

White dishes with linen napkins always look natural and beautiful, and you probably already have them at home! Tie with a ribbon for a touch of color at low cost.

Wood slices and mason jars are reusable for many other holidays, but look spring-y enough for Easter!
