Edwards Desserts Fayetteville Town Takeover
Confession time. In case you didn't know, we are a family of pie lovers. It is one of the reasons I look forward to the holiday season every year. Yes there will be visits with family. Yes, presents will be given, laughs will be had, and great food will be eaten. Now these are all great reasons to look forward to the holidays, but something is missing. Pie. Holiday season means pie season; Pumpkin, Chocolate, Pecan and more grace our table when the weather turns cold, and I love it. Our go to pie at this time of year is Edwards. Edwards Desserts has been making thaw and serve pies since the 1950's, and their commitment to quality shows. I literally grew up on Edwards Pies; I have memories of eating Edwards crème pie with my grandmother as a little girl. We hope that you enjoy this Edwards Desserts Fayetteville Town Takeover post.
Given my lifelong love of pie, I was over the moon when I found out that Edwards Desserts was going to take over the town of Fayetteville, Georgia. You see, Edwards Desserts surprised two super fans this holiday season by making them and their love of the brand the talk of their hometown. Each super fan was the guest of honor at the Town Takeover, with the first one being held in Winchester, Kentucky in October. Fayetteville is less than an hour’s drive from my house, so off I went to find out exactly what is involved in an Edwards Desserts Town Takeover.
It was a rainy day in Fayetteville that afternoon, but that didn't stop the party….it just moved things indoors. You knew you were in the right place as soon as you pulled into the parking lot of the event. Parked right up front was the Edwards Desserts food truck. Any guess on what they were serving? Yup….it was glorious pie, and it was free! I grabbed a slice of Edwards Key Lime pie and headed indoors.
You heard the party before you even stepped through the door. Edwards had a very talented duo setting the mood for the party through live music. The songs were upbeat, the singing was on key, and the playing superb.
Once inside it was time for more pie. I know, we just had pie. Don't judge; this stuff is really good. Anyway, this time around we went with the Hershey's Chocolate Crème Pie. It was an excellent choice, and we washed it down with hot chocolate.
No Town Takeover is complete without face painting, so we headed there next. Here a very talented artist painted pies, trees, snowmen and more on anyone that wanted to add a little something extra to their cheek.
And then of course it was selfie time. Edwards had a selfie wall all set up, complete with lights and a camera. The kids had a lot of fun attempting to make the perfect boomerang.
Edwards had also set up the “Confection Collection” holiday merchandise pop-up store. This was really neat. Edwards has put together a small line of limited-edition merchandise for the holidays that all relates to pie in unique ways. The Pieromatherapy Oils Set is a collection of aromatherapy oil scents inspired by pie (the Yes You Pecan Turtle Pie scent was my favorite). They also had things like scented candles, t-shirts, blankets, and more. All items are available for purchase on EdwardsHolidayShop.com.
My favorite store item was the Pom Beanie (you can see it in the picture above). It was super warm, and it really looks great when worn. Mine (yes, I have one of the hats) says “PIE on the MIND” in elegant gold on the front; you couldn't pick a more perfect line to put on my hat.
So that is what you get when you attend an Edwards Desserts Town Takeover; free pie, great music, and lots of fun experiences for the whole family. Not a bad way to spend the afternoon.
