How to Host a Friendsgiving Party with The Home Depot

Friends, today I’m sharing a super fun post that I’m super excited about, How to Host a Friendsgiving Party, by shopping online with The Home Depot. Plus I’m sharing a delicious pumpkin pie recipe that is easy to make ahead, too!

Create a Friendsgiving Party

We shopped online The Home Depot for a new table [a Urban Woodcraft Retro Multi-color Teak Dining Table and Home Decorators Collection Black Metal Upholstered Chairs with Antique Brown Seats], and a few small appliances, to make cooking and hosting easy!

We shopped for a KitchenAid Artisan Mini 3.5 Qt. 10-Speed Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, a Cuisinart 2-Speed Brushed Black Stainless Steel Food Processor, and a DeLonghi  Espresso Machine and Cappuccino Maker!

Using these products, we came up with a beautiful table setting and an easy Friendsgiving menu and dinner.

But first, I’ve been making this pumpkin pie recipe for over twenty years, and today I’m not only sharing the recipe, I’m sharing the details of my Home Depot Friendsgiving Dinner party!

The Pumpkin Pie Squares Recipe is truly a family favorite, and a must-have on our Friendsgiving or Thanksgiving Day menu. The crust is out of this world, and using some of our favorite appliances (list below), it comes together so easily!

Shopping online The Home Depot

In our home, we have one great room that makes up the kitchen, dining, and living rooms. Our dining area has been very active, with people coming together for some of the funnest holidays and most special dinners. We decided this year to get a new table, one less “chunky” and more modern, lighter to move, and easier to put chairs around.

The original table was getting beat up, the extensions were warped (making it hard to use), and honestly, our chairs were not all that comfortable. You can’t always go for the “look” in choosing a dining table and chairs. Especially when you host as often as we do, and guests need to be comfortable.

We began our table shopping online at The Home Depot for a new table, chairs, and a few small kitchen appliances.

I’m so excited to show you today our new table and chairs!

  • Urban Woodcraft Retro 78 inch Multi-Color Teak Dining Table!
  • 8 new Home Decorators Collection Ivers Black Metal Upholstered Dining Chairs with Antique Brown Seats!

Multi-Color Teak Dining Table

The Home Depot online offers an extensive selection of tables and chairs at a reasonable prices. They also offer free shipping and delivery (on orders over $45), and we received our table and chairs in a timely manner.

The process of choosing a table is easy when you shop online with The Home Depot. We chose to shop for “style” rather than price, but there is a wide range of both styles and prices that you can choose from.

We placed our order, for this Urban Woodcraft Retro Multi-color Teak Dining Table and Home Decorators Collection Black Metal Upholstered Chairs with Antique Brown Seats, and then my husband was able to assemble them in no time when they arrived.

You don’t have to be a handyman to put them all together, either. The process was very doable!

We love our new modern, low-line mango wood table, and 8 retro chairs.

Here is a little sneak peak at the final result of our dining room!

I just love how it turned out, so much!

Hop on over to The Home Depot for all the table details, and hostess tips and a FULL REVEAL for how to host a Friendsgiving party!

Now for the best part of the meal … PUMPKIN PIE!

We love the pecan and oats crust, and our secret ingredient? Cardamom.

Mix it all together in the Cuisinart 2-Speed Brushed Black Stainless Steel Food Processor, pour in the batter, and bake!

The dimensions of this Chicago Metallic Commercial II True Jelly Roll Pan is 15.5″ x 10″, and the key is that it is 1 inch deep.

Don’t forget the whipped cream! [LOVE our new KitchenAid Artisan Mini 3.5 Qt. 10-Speed Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, in a sorbet color!]

Happy Friendsgiving and Happy Hosting!

Pumpkin Pie Squares Recipe

Sponsored by The Home Depot for Friendsgiving Dinner!


  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup quick or old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup pecans, chopped
  • 2/3 cup butter, melted
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cans solid pack pumpkin or 1 large can
  • 2 cans sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Whipping cream

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor, pulse the pecans into small pieces. Add in the flour, oats, and brown sugar and pulse more until combined.
  • Melt the butter and drizzle into the mixture; pulse until combined (will be like dough). Press flat onto the bottom of a 15x10 bar pan. Bake 15 minutes at 350.
  • While you are waiting for the crust to bake, in a stand mixer, beat the eggs for 1 minute. Then add in the pumpkin, condensed milk, spices and salt.
  • Mix together until completely smooth.
  • Once the crust is out of the oven, pour the pumpkin pie mixture over the crust.
  • Bake at 350 degrees 35-40 minutes or until filling is set. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
  • Cut into squares and serve with fresh whipped cream.


  • Whip 2 cups of heavy whipping cream until thick. Add 1 tsp. vanilla and 1/4 cup powdered sugar.
