A Very Vermont Valentine’s Day
Love (and chocolate) is in the air here at Lake Champlain Chocolates. With less than 2 weeks until Valentine’s Day everyone has been busy crafting, decorating, packaging and shipping chocolates. While Valentine’s Day is the same day every year, February 14th, we understand that you may not thinking about Valentine’s Day weeks and weeks ahead of time like us. Lucky for you, our fellow LCC friends and family have helped us compile the professional’s guide to the perfect Vermont Valentine’s Day.
No Vermont Valentine’s Day would be complete without chocolate hearts and chocolate heart boxes! These personalized hearts hand-made by Emily, the Chocolate Sculptress, are a great way to show the little ones in your life how much you love them. Pair your delicious heart-shaped box of chocolates with a beautiful bouquet of flowers from Stray Cat Flower Farm for a truly delight-filled Valentine’s Day.
Shaking Things Up for Valentine’s Day – the Vermont Way
Feel like shaking things up this Valentine’s Day? Why not get crafty in the kitchen and try your hand at creating your loved ones their very own signature cocktail! We recommend starting with only the best ingredients, like the Good Food Awards winning Maldovas Apple Brandy from Mad River Distillers or Caledonia’s Spirits own Barr Hill Gin.
A Vermont Valentine’s Weekend Excursion
Make Valentine’s Day last all weekend this year! Plan a mini Vermont road-trip and enjoy a wine tasting (or two) at Lincoln Peak Vineyard or Boyden Valley Winery. Or take a trip to Stratton Mountain Resort for a weekend on the slopes and let the sparks fly as you watch the fireworks display light up the snow-covered mountain.
Taking Things Up a Notch for Valentine’s Day
If you want to spice things up a little this Valentine’s Day, why not take a trip north of the border to Montreal? Our experts suggest taking a romantic carriage ride for two throughout Old Montreal before you head on over to visit the new Pompeii exhibit at the Montreal Museum of Fine Art.
Sometimes you just want a quiet evening in (especially if you just spend the week packing and shipping thousands of pounds of chocolate). Not every Valentine’s Day needs to be a big dramatic production. Why not enjoy a romantic dinner for two by the fireplace with a nice bottle of wine from the Dedalus Wine or Burlington Wine shop?
Whatever you decide to do for your Vermont Valentine’s Day this year,
we hope you have a love-filled, chocolate-filled day!
