Oh man, just a few hours until I board the plan and head to my 2012 Thanksgiving celebration! There are so many yummy treats waiting for me this week, it’s hard to pick just one that I can’t wait for…but since I’m a dessert girl through and through, it’s safe to say I cannot wait to see what sort of pies I will get to indulge on! The best part about pies: they aren’t just for Thanksgiving (as I’m sure we all know). They are PERFECT, perfect I say, for your wedding or event! Creamy wedding cake – yum! Dessert bar – oh, the choices! Pie bar – deeelec table! So to get you excited for your Thanksgiving pie, as well as provide a little inspiration for your next event, check out these amazing pie bars…
Wedding Dessert Table
Pies tend to have a more vintage, cozy feel to them. However, they are easy to play around with and dress up for a more formal feel. Use solid colored cake stands, keep their packaging uniform for a cleaner look.
If you are looking for a way to save some money, ask friends and family to bake their favorite pies to have displayed. Feel free to keep a wedding cake though – you deserve it if you want it!
If you aren’t totally committed to full pies as your only dessert option, consider packaging them up as favors or late night snacks.
And since we’re big fans of supporting local vendors, we want to tell our brides, and all of our other Denver readers, about an A-mazing new pie shop that has opened up on the corner of 3rd and Elati in the Baker neighborhood. The pies are TO DIE FOR. But that isn’t all they have – quiches, galettes, coffee, tea. They even have a Pie Shake that is exactly what you think it is…a slice of pie with some ice cream, blended into a shake. I’ll take 2 please.
