One fun way to celebrate National Pie Day is by having a picnic with your family and friends. Don't forget to bring along some red checkered tablecloths to make it extra festive!

When Can You Reuse Red Checkered Tablecloths?

Pie Day comes once a year, but red checkered tablecloths are perfect for all sorts of parties! Checkered tablecloths red and white have been a staple of restaurant tablecloths for decades. They’re back in favor of everything from spaghetti dinner fundraisers, barnyard-themed baby showers, and even 4th of July celebrations! Stock up on checkered linens for Pie Day and use them again and again year-round.

You can also use buffalo plaid tablecloth with the addition of gingham napkins to complete the look of an All-American-themed party.  Alternatively, you can also use plain tablecloths and match them with checkered table runners for a different flair.

What Will I Need?

The foundation for this look is undoubtedly our Checkered Polyester Table Linens! Beyond that, you’ll definitely want to opt for a white polyester tablecloth underneath, with red and white polyester napkins to match. Although optional, we definitely recommend picking up at least two wood slabs to host your pies on to set the party’s atmosphere and perfect the decor. 

If your Pie Day Party attendees are younger or you’ll only have a pie table, you can opt out of the faux wood charger plates in favor of wood slabs to hold more pies.
