Inspiration: America’s Birthday


It’s hard to believe July is already here – although the heat here in Texas is making many of us wish the fall would hurry up and arrive. As we all gather together and prepare to celebrate the birth of our country, it seemed appropriate to share some wedding inspiration tied to red, white and blue.

Hope you have a safe and festive Fourth of July!

Nicole Patel is the proprietor of and chocolatier for Delysia Chocolatier. In 2006 while pregnant with her first son, Nicole made a batch of chocolate truffles as holiday gifts. To the delight of friends and family, she continued to create chocolates as a way to relieve stress from her corporate engineering job. In 2008, a chance trip to Becker Vineyards led to Nicole being the first in Texas to make truffles using local wines. Within five years, what started as a hobby turned Delysia into one of the Top Ten Chocolatiers in the Americas, as selected by the International Chocolate Salon.
