Holiday Decorating for L. A. Burdick Chocolate



Back in October we went up and met with some lovely people at L. A. Burdick Chocolates and came up with a plan for them to decorate their shops and cafes in Boston, New York City and Walpole, NH for the upcoming holidays and then last weekend we traveled up and installed it in Boston and Walpole and earlier this week their staff installed it in New York. It was so much fun to incorporate the hot chocolate bar theme that we have used in our home over the last several years and create it on a much larger scale.

We used similar elements but lots more of them. We filled huge apothecary jars full of ingredients they use like hazelnuts, chocolate, and candied ginger. And then it's always fun to add in oversized cinnamon sticks. Here are images we took of the Boston store:

We used yards and yards of fresh cedar garland, beautiful fresh wreaths and lots of fresh seeded eucalyptus. Then we added in as many paperwhites as we could fit. They are my favorite! And we also added lots of little white lights (although most of the photos I took of the Boston store were before the lights were added due to time constraints, you can see how it will look in the images of the Walpole store near the end of this post).




We also tucked some faux antlers in with some of the eucalyptus and cedar.


I can promise you there is not any hot cocoa anywhere that tastes as rich and delicious as Burdick's!




We also added in quite a few of these pinecone trees that look like they are dusted in sugar.
























And here are some images from the Walpole location:


My little munchkins enjoying their cocoa (and if you look closely you can see my mom in the reflection above them and me taking the photograph if you look really hard - ha!)







Here are just a few of the delicious desserts and pastries they offer:

And rows of their decadent chocolates:

And here is a little write-up they have displayed in the stores:



If you are near one of Burdick Chocolate's locations be sure to stop in or of course you can check them out online.

I hope you all are having a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!  I'll be back Monday with our 2015 Holiday Housewalk Tour!

    You should probably do a give-away of one of their yummy looking cocoa mug gifties to celebrate this success in a fun fashion! ♥

  9. absolutely beautiful! I could sit there for hours with such an elegant and cozy ambience. I have personally never tasted their hot chocolate as I live in the Windy City but it would be nice if they sold those beautiful chocolate mugs online for gifts!

  10. I have been following your blog for years. I love your taste! I have to know where to find artificial paperwhites. A few years ago, I picked some up at Michaels, but I can't seem to find them anywhere this year. Thanks for the help and inspiration!!!!

  13. Jennifer, we live not too far from Walpole and have often had the pleasure of lunch at the restaurant followed by chocolate shopping. I am going to plan a visit when my daughter comes home from Williamsburg next month so I can see your beautiful work in person. All best, Phyllis
