Thanksgiving Dessert Table

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.

Lacking space, but still want to display a bunch of pies? Try one of these pie racks from Amazon! It also adds some height and interest to the table.

We bought the pennant banner from Party City, and we love this fun detail!

Thanksgiving Dessert Display ideas from Cafe Pierrot in Sparta NJ

You’ll want to add a banner over the table, and this was last year’s banner from Paper Source

We used a burlap runner with a laser-cut felt overlay from Michaels last year, and it’s not on the website anymore. I’m sure you can find something similar in the stores, though!

Pumpkins and gourds will be on sale at the grocery store or market by this time of year, so pick up a few to decorate your table. You can even spray paint them!

Use mason jars to display macaron pops, cake pops, or cinnamon sticks. Just another way to add dimension to the table.

Love the colors on this autumn Jardin cake. We’ll have plenty of these in stores, but always good to order ahead so you can take care of that family member who doesn’t like pie (Who doesn’t like pie?? We’ll never understand).
