This dessert table brings together all best fall desserts, and such a fun treat for you and your guests and your sweet tooth.
The Dessert Table Decor
The first job was to set the scene. I made this pretty fall leaf backdrop with real leaves and a little washi tape. See the full tutorial on How To Make a Fall Leaf Backdrop by clicking here.
The pretty metallic pumpkins are mixed them in with some real ones. I’m loving the mix of gold and copper this fall; the fun pumpkin tassels tie in the metallic even more. I made them with some wooden beads and yarn, and the metallic beads were just spray painted in rose gold.
Individual Portions of Fall Party Desserts
I love offering individual portions on a dessert table. It means that for me as the host once the thanksgiving dinner or dinner party is done and the food is out on the dessert table, I can relax and guests can help themselves. It really is the easiest way to serve dessert, especially to a crowd. It’s also great for offering lots of little portions of everyone’s favorite fall desserts. Guests love to have the option to try lots of small collection of fall desserts -a little bit of everything! I’ve also found the small individual portions are great for kids and help reduce waste. And even if people are not that hungry after dinner they can have at least one small sweet treat.
It’s great to think about different flavours when putting a variety of delicious fall desserts for a dessert table. You want something for everyone when it comes to festive treats. I was going for a fall feeling, but even in fall chocolate lovers are chocolate lovers and at least one chocolate dessert is probably a must at any dessert table, regardless of the season.
This sweet chocolate pudding is one of the semi-homemade desserts. It’s just some instant pudding but we dressed it up with some whipped cream and chopped Reese’s pieces for a little crunch to turn it into the perfect fall dessert. You could also use nuts like some crunchy pecans, or for a nut-free option seasonal chocolate M & Ms would be great way to dress up pudding too for a delicious treat. Here’s some more chocolate fall dessert ideas you might include:
- chocolate pudding
- chocolate brownies (even made from a brownie mix)
- seasonal chocolate treats
- homemade chocolate chips cookies
I wanted to include a few real pumpkin dishes since we’re celebrating fall and it’s maybe the best flavor of the season especially when mixed with autumn spices. Nothing reallys says fall like anything pumpkin. So I also made some Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispies, find the recipe here, for one of your favorite things, with a pumpkin twist. They’re sure to become a new favorite fall treat.
These have all the ooey-gooey goodness of Rice Krispie Squares, but with the flavour of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice! I added a drizzle of white Belgian chocolate to the top and some sweet pumpkin sprinkles to make them extra special.
I also picked up a Pumpkin Cheesecake. Anything pumpkin is such a classic fall dessert. You can bake pumpkin cheesecake or pick one up at your favorite grocery store, or bakery. The cake is sliced into little wedges and I added a some whip cream to the top. I served them on these cute little individual square plates. Cheesecake always feels like a special dessert and it’s really perfect for the holiday season.

When you think of the fall season here in Ontario you can’t help but think about the fall leaves turning colour and nothing puts on a better fall show than the maple trees! They also make you think of maple syrup. So it seemed like the perfect time to include a maple dessert as an addition to the dessert table for fall.
I picked some Maple Fudge. I also love the idea of mixing in some homemade with some store bought to make life a little bit easier for all of us. Here’s a few great maple dessert ideas to include on your fall dessert table:
- maple fudge
- maple cookies
- maple donuts
The last item on the dessert table were some homemade apple crisps. Every fall dessert table needs something apple flavoured and these apple crisps were the perfect dessert to include. These apple crisps are so easy to make -you can find my full recipe here. But, if you’re not in the baking mood, you could also find a frozen one that you could just spoon into the cute serving dishes after it’s baked. Apple crisp is one of those really easy fall dessert recipes, and apple is always one of everyone’s favorite fall flavors. You might also add a scoop of vanilla ice cream when serving.
I love these little matte black individual baking dishes, with their cute little lids. They’re perfect for giving everyone their own, and the lids help to keep whatever your cooking nice and warm until serving time. Want some more apple dessert ideas for your fall dessert table? How about:
- apple crisp
- caramel apples
- homemade apple pie
- caramel apple pie

I hope you’re feeling inspired for your own Thanksgiving or Fall Dessert Table. After a fall dinner, your guests will love the individual desserts, and you’ll love the ease of some homemade, some semi-homemade, and some store bought small treats! Everyone can indulge in one decadent fall dessert or many.
