I had a lovely time this morning sharing the story of The Cordial Cherry with members of First Covenant Church Omaha. The delicious breakfast was prepared by chef Jim and his crew of youth members. The entire morning was inspirational to say the least and I was blessed with a beautiful devotion from Helen, good conversation with Diane and Martin, and warm smiles throughout. Thank you! :)
We couldn't be more honored to have our beautiful Nativity Set included on Oprah's 2013 List of Favorite Things!
This year we'll be partnering with Lucky Bucket to help them introduce their new Summer beer...Flip Flop, a refreshing strawberry blonde ale that pairs perfectly with our sweet cordial cherries.
Cherries soaked in Lucky Bucket's Flip Flop, coated in sweet, syrupy liquid, and then enrobed in rich dark chocolate...
Join us this Saturday from 2 to 3! Tickets can be purchased at Benson Beer Fest!
May 9th was a beautiful evening full of inspirational art, delectable samplings, exquisite wine and friends of Boys Town National Research Hospital's Center for Childhood Deafness. The Cordial Cherry was honored to participate in such a great fund raiser to support this very important research. We were in great company...US Foods, Jones Brothers Cupcakes, The Gray Plume, The Gallery, Vivace, and many more!

Chocolates and weddings go hand-in-hand and so it's no surprise that The Cordial Cherry and Nebraska Wedding Day make a great couple. We were asked to prepare something decadent and beautiful to accompany their 2013 wedding magazine. So, we designed a custom dark chocolate bar, wrapped in raw silk fabric allowing a beautiful back-drop for hand-made "Save the Date" tags, made by Megan Cooper of Nebraska Wedding Day. These exquisite fabric wrapped chocolate bars were gifted to clients all over the state to announce the launch of Nebraska Wedding Day's new magazine.
In addition to our beautiful fabric chocolate bars, we also created a buffet of chocolates and sweet treats for all of the guests at the launch party. Our chocolate butterflies white flower cordial cherries were in perfect keeping with the garden theme of the event....our Satin Fudge was a popular addition and incorporated subtle neutral colors into the display. Hazelnut truffles, white chocolate toffee cashews, and tiramisu almonds added a simple and elegant touch, while appealing to all of the chocolate and nut lovers.
The food was delicious, the wine was amazing, the chocolates were fabulous, but my favorite part of these events is seeing old friends and meeting new ones, like Yvonne Loy of Le Cupcake in Lincoln....a beautiful new business owner who's following her dreams and inspiring her friends and family.
Thanks to Marjie Grove and Megan Cooper for the wonderful opportunity to introduce our chocolates to Nebraska's wedding community!
