I am absolutely thrilled to present a post I have been dreaming of creating for months now. As soon as all of the adorable Easter items hit stores, I began dreaming up the ideal Easter party, so when I had the opportunity to create an Easter Party post for Marie Callender’s® Cream Pies from Walmart, I was elated! I could hardly contain my excitement and told the good news to just about anyone who was within earshot :) I bean planning immediately, and am so very happy with how cute everything turned out, and think many of these ideas could easily be replicated for a Spring or Easter gathering of your own. These pies taste absolutely DELICIOUS, so head out and grab one of their many flavors today.
The pies I featured in this post include: Marie Callender’s® Chocolate Satin Pie and Marie Callender’s® Lemon Meringue Pie, but there are other flavors available, like Marie Callender’s® Banana Cream Pie and also Marie Callender’s® Coconut Cream Pie. I cannot wait to try them all, the two I tried were luscious! Walmart had these pies for several dollars less than any other grocery store I shopped at. Definitely recommend getting them there.
I had no idea what to expect when I opened the pie boxes. They're to be kept frozen, which I loved, because the frozen aspect really enhanced the pie's flavor and overall fun of eating the pies :) I was extremely pleased that the pies come out of the box with a protective, plastic lid over them, as well as a shrink wrap, which kept everything looking absolutely beautiful! It's not very often that the contents of a package look even better than what's on the box. Lucky for me, these pies are gorgeous! They will definitely add an elegance to your party or would be great for a snack or dessert for any day of the week.
Another fun idea is to grab some adorable metal trays, place a cute tea towel inside, then place your pies in them to show them off before cutting!
Marie Callender’s® Lemon Meringue Pie was divine. It tasted almost like a lemon sorbet or lemon ice, beneath a delicious merengue. I even garnished it with Arizona lemons, grown right in my dad's yard! So special.
Make some quick and easy DIY Bunny Pops with little marshmallow bunnies and paper straws, also available at Walmart. Simply insert the straws into the marshmallows and you're DONE! I displayed them in a wooden crate from Walmart, adorned with scrapbooking paper from a craft store. I would recommend placing some styrofoam beneath the wooden crate to stick the paper straws into, so the pops stand upright better. What a fun and inviting display for these treats!
Because I spent an extended period of time in Arizona this year, I wanted to use the wild bunnies and the desert landscape as inspiration for this Easter table. While I wish I had incorporated lots more live cacti and succulents into the brunch/dessert table, I was able to find the most adorable pastel cactus scrapbooking paper to tie the southwest theme in with the rest of the pastel Easter decor. I added a little cowboy hat and bandana to a bunny figurine, and also used this beautiful TeePee and floral fabric as a table runner atop my vintage, white dresser. I just love how everything looked together.
Another creative way to display treats for your Easter party is to grab a shallow wooden crate, add Easter grass to it, then place some mini cupcakes into the wooden crate. Looks like a little field of flowers, ready to be eaten. Yum!!
Another idea to spruce up some goodies for Easter is to find store bought pastries, and add more icing and sprinkles!!! These normal cinnamon-donut style treats were pretty basic until I added some more decorator icing from a tube, and loads of Easter and Spring colored/themed sprinkles. Cinnamon rolls can be embellished too!
