Host a Thanksgiving Pie Party

Host a simple Thanksgiving pie party this year. Ask friends to bring over their leftover pie .... BYOP! It's a great way to visit with friends and family. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of year. I get giddy just thinking about setting a dreamy table and playing hostess to my nearest and dearest friends and family. However, once the meal has been enjoyed and the company has cleared, it always seems the next day I am exhausted! The idea for this pie party came to me in that spirit of having conquered the holiday but still longing for more of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving — pie, wine, and great company.

Pie Party | Thoughtfully SimpleThis post-Thanksgiving gathering is very mellow yet still inviting. Have your closest friends bring over their leftover holiday pies (seriously, already sliced and all) and a bottle of wine. Set up a pie bar, set a causal table and nestle in for the afternoon.

Layering table runners gives the table a nice texture and the neutral colors allow for the centerpiece to be the star of the show. In the middle of the table, I simply took leftover mini Halloween pumpkins and gave them a shower of metallic gold and copper spray paint which instantly them up for Thanksgiving. The greenery on the table is made from trimmed branches from a lovely dark green leafed plant found at my local nursery.

I used the same metallic gold spray paint and sprayed clear glass plates to make chargers that coordinated with the gold pumpkins. Each fork also got a touch of gold as well. The napkins with their orange bird pattern make for a fun and playful addition to the table. Orange wine and water goblets also added personality to the tablescape.

This was so easy! Using an exiting sofa table, I set up a place where guests could drop off their pies upon arrival and then guests could help themselves to slice after slice. The “PIE” sign is made of papermache letters that are adorned with feathers. Old mis-matched candlesticks make for interesting cake stand (just top with a plate).

Cocktail

Pie and wine are surely plenty. But you might want to serve a fun themed drink or pre-dessert shot. This mini Pumpkin Pie Martini was the perfect addition to our Pie Party. Recipe here.
