American Heritage Chocolates
American Heritage Historic Chocolate is all about bringing the history of chocolate to life. They have a lot of fabulous products, made only with ingredients and processes available in the 1700s. They partner with museums across the country, allowing history buffs to experience chocolate as it was made in Colonial times. Lucky for us, one of the museums that American Heritage has partnered with is Colonial Williamsburg!
They offer a few historic options, such as, hot cocoa and chocolate bites, that serve as a very unique way to give chocolate as a favor. The packaging is also really special, complimenting any table setting or wedding decor. Chocolate is already a wedding favor favorite, so this is an easy way to make your party unique.

Bottled Tavern Beverages – The Historic Colonial Williamsburg Taverns
Colonial Williamsburg is home to four, historic taverns, each with a unique theme. They are a fun experience for those visiting the CW. Two of the taverns, Chowning’s Tavern and King’s Arms Tavern offer bottled beverages, great for individual favors. Chowning’s Tavern offers rootbeer and King’s Arms Tavern offers ginger ale. These have a beautiful, historic label and a nice dark bottle that enhance the theme and can be easily dressed up with a colored or burlap ribbon. These are a great way to bring the fun touch of the historic taverns to a Colonial-style or vintage wedding.
