Easy As Pie: How to set up a festive Pie Bar this Thanksgiving!

Posted by Bobbi Cassettari on

Nothing finishes off your Thanksgiving Feast better than pumpkin pie...or apple...or chocolate...or pecan...now I'm hungry!
All of us at KDO Designs are obsessed with everything fall - cooler weather, the autumn colors, leaves falling, pumpkin spice lattes, a cozy sweater. It's ALL as sweet as pie! Oh, and then there's the pie! My Grandma always made the best pies on earth and I still remember seeing all of them covering the dessert table at Thanksgiving! No matter how stuffed we were from all the turkey and mashed potatoes, we were told to save room for pie!
We're pretty excited about one of our newly updated products: our
Each kit comes with 16 pieces that will help make your Pie Bar beautiful and inviting for your friends and family! 


Here are a few tips on how you can create your own delicious-looking Pie Bar this Thanksgiving:

Plan out your table scape:

We like to start by planning around the colors for the table. Once you have chosen the color theme, you can start to build the elements of your table.
Our Pie Bar Kit's theme colors are
amber yellow, pumpkin orange, burgundy, and citrine green.


Our signature Pie Flavor Toppers come in a set of twelve and will help label each pie or dessert on your table.

Making a dessert that's not included on these twelve pre-made flags? Our handmade place cards (2 different designs) come in a separate set of 8 and the colors match our Pie Bar color scheme. These place cards can be used to label other desserts at your Pie Bar or at your dinner table place settings. Now you can assign crazy Aunt Marge her own special spot at your feast this year!

Build your decor with props you have at home:

You can create a warm, autumn glow by using candles, tea lights, or delicate string lights inside a mason jar.
Create dimension by using cake stands to hold a few of your pies. You can create levels by using small boxes or a stack of books underneath the tablecloth to prop up a pie or two, or other decor.



Add framed quotes for a personal touch:

Frame our 4X6 sign that comes with your Pie Bar Table decor kit:
"You want a piece of me?"



You can also use frames to display quotes or scriptures on thankfulness and gratitude. Here are a few of our favorites:

  • "Be present in all things, and thankful for all things" - Maya Angelou
  • "I'm thankful to have a family who takes eating as seriously as I do"
  • "There is always, always something to be thankful for"
  • "Rest and be thankful!" - William Wordsworth
  • "Be thankful for what you have, you'll end up having more." - Oprah Winfrey
  • "Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!" -Psalm 118:1
  • "Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances." 1 Thessalonians 5:16

This sweet quote as well as these centerpiece sticks make a beautiful statement of thankfulness! Each are included in our Give Thanks Decor Kits available on our website. Click HERE for more details on this little bundle that matches perfectly with your Pie Bar Kit!

Our signature Pie Bar banners will draw your guests to your table and serve as a focal point. Both banners are included in our Pie Table Decor Kit.
