This time last week, I was in a plane, on our descent into Houston, TX! Jay & I were lucky enough to be able to attend Mike & Vickie’s wedding, which was a beautiful event at the Alden Hotel in downtown Houston. While I was honored that they asked me to make their chocolate favors for them, I could never have imagined what it would take to get 400+ pieces of chocolate (peanut butter & caramel if you were wondering) 1,622 miles from northern NJ to Houston, TX! I’ve learned that shipping chocolate safely to warmer climates is supremely expensive, but if packed correctly, they definitely hold up well. However, since I couldn’t think of a safe way to ship the favors assembled, we had a bit of work to do when we got to our hotel room last Friday night, folding favor boxes and repacking the chocolates from their shipping boxes to the favor boxes. But when you love what you do (which I do!), all that extra work doesn’t even seem like work when you get that finished product together & see how happy it makes your clients!
Here are some of the photos of this latest Sweet Element chocolate favor adventure & the lovely bride & groom! Congrats Vickie & Mike!
