The foil chocolate hearts are available in bags of 100 with over sixteen different colour options; each milk chocolate heart is approximately 34mm wide and 5mm deep.
The different colours can be used to create a theme, match existing decorations or convey a message. To add more depth and texture to decorative ideas try mixing colours and chocolate sizes.
The red, black and silver foil wrapped chocolate hearts are the most popular; red for passion, black for drama and stylish silver.
The heart shaped chocolates in pink express romance and love, ideal for Valentine’s Day or wedding favours.
All pinks go well with silver, black and other pinks. Fuchsia pink is completed with turquoise, for a unisex theme, and orange for a fashionable clash. For a soft, serene theme pale pink and lilac work well.
Gold is a very traditional colour scheme for weddings; gold chocolate hearts also work well with red and burgundy themes. Mixing gold chocolate hearts with similar colours such as copper or yellow give the foil wrapped hearts a deeper, warmer look.
Blues and purples are more contemporary colours, working well with other chocolate hearts in silver and paler colours and with each other.
