Mother's High Heels Done in Chocolate

Mother loved high heels, 
I love high heels,
my daughters love high heels,
my daughters-in-law love high heels,
and my granddaughters love high heels

so high heels are the showstopper on this
Mother's Day Table
only they are in

Yes, these are solid chocolate high heels.
They are amazing in their colors and details.

My sweet son Tyson saw these while traveling for
his job and knew that his mother would adore them.
He took pictures with his phone to help me decide
which ones I wanted.  I started with two but had to
add two more.

They come packaged like this in a darling "purse"
which I decided also needed a place on the table -

so I filled the empty purse with some of my double
tulip blossoms for the center of the table.

Fresh roses also say Mother's Day to me and these
were a gift from friends so I had to include them in
the center of the table.

I had found two of these adorable super-mini
cake stands a while ago so this pink one showcases
a pretty pink rose and a Kiss.

This beautiful pink with brown accents and
a dark chocolate butterfly sits beautifully on the
pink and white stack of plates.

How could I pick a favorite chocolate shoe,
but this iridescent cream shoe with the purple
jewel is just amazing.

See how exquisite it is?

The purple with silver flower is also iridescent.
Just lovely!

But there is something about this milk chocolate
with pink polka dots and a sugary pink jewel too.

Even my son was awed by the detail and variety of shoes.
He had such a hard time deciding.

He found these in the Detroit airport of all places.

There were even a couple of lavender blooms in the
roses.  I love this view looking down over the

Don't you wish a bouquet of fresh roses lasted longer?

The plate stack perfectly matches the colors
of the roses.

A crystal flower for a napkin ring goes around a pink
satiny napkin.

I paired my bubble goblets with my grandmother's
depression glassware.  I just love pink glasses.

No, we won't be eating these chocolate shoes - at least not
right away.  They are too wonderful.

I had bought a 3D chocolate mold for a high heel
and tried making it a while back, but mine didn't turn
out anything like these.

The truth is that this won't be our Mother's Day table either.
I get spoiled on Mother's Day and the food, table and
dishes are done by my sweetheart and the children.
This year with three married children my suggestion is that
the men each make a dish and spoil all of the mothers.

I always love Mother's Day. 
 I feel like it is a tiny bit
of payback for all of the other days of the year and 
all mothers deserve to be spoiled a little.

Part of the Mother's Day tradition 
in our ward - our local church unit - is to 
have the graduating seniors each speak on Mother's Day
for a few minutes to honor their mothers.  I have my
baby graduating this year and so I will have that great
priviledge to hear him speak.  It is always one of the best
Sacrament Meetings of the year as they express the things
their mothers have taught them and the love they have for
each of their mothers.  I will definitely feel spoiled.

Hope you get spoiled this year.

I will be posting this with


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. They are INCREDIBLE!!! Take a closeup picture of each one and put it in their purses to remember "ALWAYS". How big are they? They look like they are a REALLY GOOD SIZE TOO???
    That was SO THOUGHTFUL of your son! OH MY I would NEVER EVER be able to eat them! AND of course """IF""" you ever DO eat them, the PURPLE ONE will be last OR BRONZED in your china cabinet!
    Have a FUN FILLED Mother's Day Week,
    Big Hugs to you,

  2. Donna, they are almost life size - I guess they are life size if you are a size 5 or 5 1/2 and they are heavy too. Love the idea of taking a photo of each and saving it.

  27. Jacqueline, when you said you had large high heel molds, you weren't kidding. These chocolate heels are amazing and look real. I'd choose the purple one of course, another one of the handmade things that would be too pretty to eat though.
    Happy Mother's Day.

  28. You amaze me, always! So unique and what a full size treat one of those chocolate slippers would be! Happy Mother's Day, enjoy your spoiling...

  29. The fact that you son even LOOKED at those chocolate shoes in a busy airport is testament to his fine upbringing! :-) I have spent time in the Detroit airport but never noticed that shop there. Those are really unique chocolates, and they look fabulous on your table. Mothers and shoes = Happy Mothers! I don't recall having ever seen those fabulous petal pink dishes before. They are so pretty!!! I like the edging on them. Perfect for so many occasions! Fun to use the "purses" with the blooms in them! Very cool, Jacqueline! It sounds like you will be a lady of leisure on Mother's Day, and I am happy for you!!! Enjoy it!
