I tend to keep the 4th of July pretty low key, but this year I wanted to switch things up a bit. We’ve been holding regular team-building events, which have been so much fun, so we decided to tap into our patriotic spirit and throw a party to celebrate our nation together with a “Say hi to pie this 4th of July” party. We partnered up with Edwards® Desserts to make it happen. It was the perfect solution because we could focus on the prep for the party and let Edwards® desserts bring their decadent dessert A-game.
We let lemon meringue be the star of the show and based our theme around it—lemons and stripes with a blue, yellow, and a dab of faded red color palette. Then we set up a pie bar with a few additional flavors like Hershey’s® Chocolate Crème Pie and Key Lime Pie so we could try them all. Personally, I love trying a bit of every flavor and this was the perfect opportunity to do so.
Each pie features velvety layers, and a fresh from the oven cookie crumb crust, which makes my taste buds melt. It comes frozen and it’s as easy as 1, 2, thaw!
We topped off the party with a variety of fruit-infused lemonades and we were all set!
I loved playing with the lemon theme. We found these great plates to complement it and accented the details with yellows.
It had been awhile since I worked with fresh florals and I loved making the garland for the centerpiece of the table. We topped it off with fresh lemons and daisies sprinkled throughout.
I’m a big chocolate fan and the Hershey’s® Chocolate Crème Pie was my favorite.
We intentionally bought too many pies with the intent that we could send everyone home with some treats of their own. We made these printable pie boxes that you can print off yourself and use for your own festivities.
I’d love to hear how you celebrated the 4th of July? Details please!
