Edwards Desserts makes indulgent, thaw-and-serve crème pies that are found in the frozen desserts aisle of grocery stores nationwide (I found mine at Walmart!). When selecting pies for my dessert table, I went with Edwards® Turtle Pie Crème Pie and Edwards® Hershey’s Chocolate Crème Pie.
The Edwards® Turtle Pie Crème Pie was my first choice! This pie has a smooth caramel filling infused with rich caramel, topped with chocolate, pecans, and whipped crème rosettes on a fresh-from-the-oven chocolate cookie crumb crust. This pie is truly a real show-stopper. You’ll want to take it slow and savor every bite.
Edwards Hershey’s Chocolate Crème Pie is another great pie for the holidays, because who doesn’t love chocolate? It includes layers of chocolate and vanilla crème topped with chocolate pieces, chocolate drizzle and whipped crème rosettes on a fresh-from-the-oven chocolate cookie crumb crust.
When setting up the dessert station, I used a lot of items I already had around the home. You’ll want items of various heights and different textures. I tried to keep all of the items mostly neutral, except for the pop of color the second table cloth adds and the colors from the Fall flowers.
Here are some tips that will help you when setting up your dessert table:
- Use Edwards Desserts for a simple yet tasty dessert solution to save time!
- Select dessert stands in various heights, materials and sizes
- Use a basket to set plates inside
- Find an ingredient that is in your dessert and display it on the table (such as the sliced pecans I have in the bowl and scattered on the table)
- Use fresh flowers
- Layer tablecloths, placemats, etc.
- On the back wall (unless nature is your backdrop or you don’t have a back wall), try using cutting boards, baskets or fresh flowers to fill in the open spaces on the wall. This will fill in the space, so your guest isn’t just staring at your naked wall. (i.e.: On the basket, I tied a bow to the top of the basket to fill in some space.)
Remember to check out Edwards Desserts for thaw-and-serve crème pies that are available in whole pie and single-serve portions. Other varieties include Edwards® Key Lime Crème Pie, Edwards® Cookies and Crème Pie and the seasonal Edwards® Pumpkin Crème Pie.
