Pie Bar Dessert Table | fourth of july dessert station #michaelsmakers | With summer right around the corner I’ve already starting planning some fun celebrations for the upcoming months. We love to entertain and planning different party themes is one of my passions.

As a toast to the last challenge of the season, this month the Michaels Makers team is celebrating each of the six holidays this summer with gifts, baked treats and parties! My challenge was based upon one of my favorite holidays of the year – the Fourth of July!

Since every celebration calls for some tasty desserts I put together an All American Pie Bar incorporating some good old red, white and blue. 98% of the supplies to create this Fourth of July dessert station were picked up right at my local Michaels  – minus the whipped cream, pies, and ice cream.

When it comes to entertaining I believe everything is in the details and presentation. It doesn’t have to be complicated or cost a ton of money. All of the decor for this pie bar table is created using inexpensive basic party supplies and takes just a couple of hours to prepare. The basic concept for this dessert table can be used for any holiday or celebration by simply adjusting the color palette.

I’ll be sharing all of the do-it-yourself decor ideas, including the homemade wooden cake stands, and free printables in some upcoming posts and will update the links below once they are published.

Wooden cake plate stands were made at staggering heights to display the selection of pies.

They are incredibly easy to make and I will definitely be putting these to good use throughout the summer. They are so versatile and a perfect addition to any food table.

Decorative frames from the Michaels dollar bins, along with some printable pie labels, were used to identify each of the pies.

For any guest that likes their pie a la mode, don’t forget the ice cream.

Ice Cream Pie Dessert Bar #michelsmakers
Pre packaged ice cream cups keep it simple and self-serve.

These were tossed in an Ashland® Apothecary Jar. I prettied up the inside with some scrapbook paper and labeled the front of the jar with vinyl I cut with my Silhouette. (Alphabet stickers would also work)

I also wrapped the whipped cream can with a piece of scrapbook paper to go along with the theme.

As mentioned above, the decor is a series of simple do-it-yourself projects made with basic party supplies.

Fourth of July Balloon Garland #michaelsmakers
Latex balloons were used to create the red, white and blue balloon garland.

This project is so simple and creates a backdrop for your table with a big wow factor.

It only requires inexpensive latex balloons and some string…plus a whole lot of air. The tutorial will be coming up shortly.

The tassel garland is another easy project that packs a big punch for party decor.

It’s solely made with sheets of tissue paper.

Marquee Lights Dessert Bar #michaelsmakers
I also had to incorporate some Marquee Love into the mix. I have been a little obsessed with these diy marquee letters since using the kits for my party drink bar. I love how they can be customized to fit any theme – plus lights are battery operated!

I simply spray painted the stars with favorite gold spray paint so I can use them over and over – no matter what the theme.

The final piece of the pie bar dessert table is some take home pie boxes.

These are also homemade – cut from some Recollections® Cardstock Paper.
I’ll be sharing the cut out template and Fourth of July printables next week.

To jazz up the plain kraft paper I added some pom poms, made with tissue paper, along with blue and white bakers twine to seal the boxes.
