Chocolate box wedding favours

20130828-193712.jpg

We had the most amazing chocolates at our wedding, which were from The Chocolate Spa in Alnwick, Northumberland. After deciding that we didn’t want to have individual wedding favours, we settled on having a box of handmade chocolates on each table. One of my ex-students once bought me a box from The Chocolate Spa and since then we’ve been hooked!

A few months ago, we went up to Alnwick and bought a selection of chocolates. One of my bridesmaids, Tiffany, had the very important job of helping us taste them – it was tough, but someone had to do it! My favourite was the wild forest cup (the purple one) because it was so fruity and creamy!

The only thing left to sort out was a box to put them in, and we came up with the idea of having heart-shaped boxes. But as is often the case, when you’re looking for something specific you can’t find them anywhere! My Mum managed to find some in TKMaxx but they were full of other chocolates (that we had to eat…) and they needed covering. So the next challenge was to find some paper to cover them, which we found in Paperchase. They have a fantastic selection of handmade paper, but we settled on this lovely heart paper. Tom did a brilliant job of covering them!

We went back to Alnwick a few days before the wedding to buy the chocolates that we wanted – it was a very hot day and the lovely staff were doing a great job of keeping everything cool! The chocolates certainly went down well on the day!

    Super cute idea and more fun to try different ones with friends and compare what you all had and enjoyed. I like that idea. The store looks pretty divine. I know dark chocolates better for you but I like the look of white chocolate with the sprinkles.

      The ones you like the look of were champagne truffles – they were divine! Dark chocolate is my favourite, but any is good really! ๐Ÿ˜‰
