The Holidays Are On Their Way

Holy crap! Did you know there are only 97 days until Christmas?! And 64 days til Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving was always my mom’s favorite holiday because, she said, it didn’t have the stress and obligations of Christmas. It’s just a time for, literally, giving thanks for the blessings in our lives, and enjoying delicious food and time with family.

I’m not a fan of cooking, but Thanksgiving is one of the few times I channel my mom’s lessons of the holiday and make a big meal. Of course there are chocolates and ice cream for dessert, and my husband, David, often makes a “pumpkin” pie from the butternut squash he grows on our farm north of Mount Vernon, Iowa.

Are you hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year? We can tick a few items off your list by providing adorable chocolate turkeys, scarecrows or leaves for table settings or candy dishes. Or if you’re fortunate enough to be a guest at someone else’s dinner, stop in for a gift box of truffles or caramels that will ensure any host/ess will invite you back again!

Now is also the time to start thinking about Christmas: We will of course have a full array of holiday-themed chocolates for office gatherings and children’s stockings. Remember that we also have an eclectic collection of chocolate molds in stock and can easily get many others. From chocolate carpenter’s tools to toothbrushes to Bingo cards to motorcycles–whatever topic delights your gift recipient, we can make them a gift from chocolate.

If you’re in charge of your company’s gift-giving, we can help with that, too. There is still time to have custom molds made from your company logo or to plan gift boxes that suit each of your customers. Stop in the shop, give us a call, or email mvconfections@yahoo.com to talk about your ideas.
