With the recent spate of 50th Birthday celebrations, I thought it was about time I started planning mine. I know it’s over a year away, but I wanted to make sure we had a suitable venue if no more.

Our plan to return to Wivenhoe House where we had my 40th was scuppered by the fact that they are now primarily a wedding venue and won’t book another type of party until a couple of months before the event if they have availability. With potential overseas visitors we wanted to get a date in the diary and need somewhere with accommodation either onsite or close by. We’ve settled on the Five Lakes venue. It’s a little further from home than we would have liked, but they were more than happy to accommodate us and extremely helpful. That’s one less thing to worry about 🙂

Choctails® was founded by husband and wife team Simon and Hilary Delamare. Simon's suggestion of putting cocktail flavours into chocolate took Hilary's chocolate-making hobby to new heights, until in May 2012, the decision was made to turn the hobby into a full time business. The domestic kitchen became a production factory by day, and the dining room was given up to become a place where hand-made chocolate is crafted
