This weekend for Father’s Day we made pie, lots and lots of pie, and set up a fun Pie Stand for our family celebration. I think it just might have been one of my best ideas ever. ;) This pie dessert table would also be amazing at a wedding, or birthday. It was inspired by my sweet husbands love of pie.
I set up the pie stand under some nice trees in the backyard. I used the blue bunting I made last Father’s Day out of old men’s shirts over the stand. See how I made it here. I used the different shades of blue as the colour scheme -which seemed really fitting for Father’s Day.
Another fun addition to the table was this cute “I love you even more than I love pie” sign.
I spelled out the word “pie” from some letters I had around the house.
An old crate worked really well to create height on the table and hold some mini pies and tarts. Here are some blueberry crumble, and some rhubarb custard tarts. It was great to have a variety of sizes from full pies all the way down to tarts.
The banana cream pie in a mason jar also turned out really well. They were quite easy to make, and looked so cute in their individual jars.
My favourite pie was the cherry pie. Displayed on one of our homemade cake stands -see how they were made here, and repainted white.
And, my husband’s favourite, coconut cream, with a sweet little mini bunting made with a little embroidery thread.
My daughters made the mini apple pies, some with double crust, and some with crumble. The middle pie is strawberry rhubarb. This one and the rhubarb custard tarts were made by my sweet sister-in-law Heather -thanks for catching the vision Heather!
We had vanilla whipped cream and vanilla ice cream to top off the pies.
We sampled them all, and divided up the left overs, making for sweet memories of the pie stand for days!
Pie equals a party, lots of pie equals an AMAZING party! May there be some pie in your immediate future my friends! Life is a party -a pie party.
