See What You Can Do! It’s Easy as Pie!

Tips for how to assemble a Thanksgiving pie wedding table.

An eye-catching backdrop – You want to make your pie display as inviting as possible, even from a distance. A striking backdrop (1) is the perfect way to do this, especially one in the chalkboard style that’s still hugely popular.

Creative pie stands – A major appeal factor is how creatively you present the pies themselves. We just love the idea of using country-style items like this upturned fruit basket (2), wooden crates, or tree trunk slabs. Or quaint pieces like this vintage scale (3), a stack of heirloom cookbooks, or a set of old bookshelves.

Decorative touches – Dressing up each pie in a unique way is another winning idea. Think adorable mini bunting (4), your monogram as a couple, or DIY toppers to mark Thanksgiving. Plus you can prettify the practical, such as pie labels on sticks (5), pie recipe cards for guests to take, or a handwritten pie menu in a frame.

Pretty favor packaging – Guests will surely be hoping for take-home treats from your pie table. So be sure to oblige them with favors of mini pies tied with ribbon (6) or single slices in printable pie boxes (7). They’ll love you for it!

We can just imagine the compliments you’ll receive for styling a pie display with elements like these. And what a tribute to Thanksgiving it will be!
