It’s been quite a busy summer for the Get-Christine team which includes working with the new intern, Lauren. She and I get together as often as possible to collaborate on fun wedding and event ideas and plans. At least, we do so when Lauren’s not been at the beach living up her last summer as a HS student. This week, I bring you a vendor spotlight article written by Lauren about a delicious spot in town called The Chocolate Boutique.
I recently decided that since I’ve been working in the events industry for long enough, that it’s well past time I started writing about some of the fabulous vendors I’ve met and worked with. I’ve personally never worked with The Chocolate Boutique on a wedding or event in the past, but I have been in to visit their shop and purchased plenty of their chocolates. Having personally tasted those goodies, I can definitely vouch for their chocolate and it is delicious!
Without further ado, I bring you Lauren’s piece:
The Chocolate Boutique
Owner: Kesha Dozier
Nearly five years ago, Mrs. Kesha Dozier left her corporate job to pursue her love of chocolate. After studying in Italy, Belgium, and Spain about ‘all things chocolate’ The Chocolate Boutique was soon born. The boutique offers a wide variety of truffles, chocolate covered nuts, and even chocolate covered bacon! All of the offerings are finely crafted from Belgian and Swiss chocolates. In addition to the confections behind the cases, you and your friends or family have the chance to make your very own chocolate during a chocolate party! The Chocolate Boutique hosts parties for any occasion that you desire. They have over 1,200 chocolate molds ranging from “high heels to spark plugs.” For huge parties or weddings you can rent “Flo”, an amazing, 2-flavor chocolate fountain! It’s the only one of its kind in North Carolina. Chocolate Fountain
Most items are customizable for any occasion. For weddings, you could have a candy buffet equipped with all kinds of truffles, dipped fruits and nuts. As a dessert alternative, “Flo” would be an excellent idea. Also, you could have a bag filled with chocolate covered nuts or personalized truffles as a take-home favor.
The Chocolate Boutique has a convenient location at Lafayette Village in North Raleigh. Oh, and another one over in Park West Village of Morrisville. Contact them today to set up a party for a girls night out, a fun birthday party, or visit The Chocolate Boutique to get your hands on some delicious goodies.
To contact Kesha from The Chocolate Boutique and inquire about some party pricing, or even to rent that fantastic chocolate fountain Flo, she can be reached at: 919.322.0960.
