Gift Guide Posted December 19, 2015
Give the gift of gourmet goodies. Here at the patisserie, we have something sweet for everyone on your list!
For the long-distance loved one – You may have heard about our exciting launch: we are now shipping Voyage boxes nationwide! We offer two sizes, large and petite, and both are chock full of sweet luxuries. These boxes make the perfect gift for family and friends who can’t make the voyage to Sioux Falls (and C.H. Patisserie) often enough.
For the baker– A C.H. Patisserie rubber spatula, mug, and some gourmet marshmallows make a great bundle for the baker in your life. Don’t forget the gift card, so they can treat themselves to a little something as well.
For the “chocoholic”– Select a few of our heavenly chocolate bars to wrap up with a gift card and a note promising a C.H. Patisserie date soon. Chocolate lovers can’t get enough of our chocolate pecan tart, chocolate croissants and much, much more!
Stocking stuffers – Everyone loves finding a sweet luxury in their stocking on Christmas morning! The items from our Voyage series are available in-store a la carte, or say “Merry Christmas” with macarons! We have 6- or 12-count sleeves of macarons available for Santa to slide into a stocking. (In case you missed it: the December macaron of the month is eggnog, ideal for any Christmas party or gift exchange.)
For you – The holidays are hard work. Treat yourself to a Parisian hot chocolate with our signature marshmallows while you peruse the patisserie for gift items. See you soon!
Something old, something new, something borrowed… and macarons! Posted October 29, 2015
As engagement season approaches, here are a few ways to incorporate this C.H. specialty into a bridal shower.
Edible centerpieces are the best centerpieces. Whether you’re throwing your bride a Parisian soiree or an afternoon garden party, a macaron tree can fit any bridal shower theme. C.H. has 4- and 10-tier trees available. Fill them with your bride’s favorite flavor or macarons in her wedding colors.
Centerpieces aren’t the only way to display your macarons. Even if they’re just part of a buffet line, shaping your macs into a heart or the initial of the bride’s new last name adds some sweet detail to your special treat.
Make it a game! Get a sleeve of macarons and a list of questions about the bride-to-be. What is the bride’s favorite kind of ice cream? Where did she meet her future husband? The first one to answer correctly gets the mac of their choice. (Don’t forget to save a few for the blushing bride!)
Speaking of the bride—make sure you bring a gift for your shower host, bride-to-be! May we suggest some macarons? There are endless fun ways to package and personalize a few to say “thank you” for the perfect shower!
