On Saturday, March 26th members of Philly Social Media Moms (PSMM) and their families visited Loreâ€™s Chocolates in Old City Philadelphia to launch Loreâ€™s newest birthday party offerings.Â Loreâ€™s owners, Tony and Maureen Walter, hosted the event, which was organized by PSMM member Karla Trotman.Â The Loreâ€™s Chocolate Birthday Experience was two, 1-hour long sessions where the children learned about chocolate and had the opportunity to make their own creations.
A Unique Birthday Party for Kids
So how did this birthday party idea come about?Â â€œI had already put down the deposit on another one of those bouncing parties when I thought, â€˜I donâ€™t want to do that againâ€™â€, reflects Maureen Walter, who acts as Marketing and Communications Director of Loreâ€™s Chocolates.Â Her husbandâ€™s family has owned Loreâ€™s for over twenty years.Â Loreâ€™s downtown factory, located directly under the Old City shop, is no longer the location of its main chocolate production. Â Maureen decided to make use of the space and hold her sonâ€™s birthday party there, calling it â€œA Chocolate Birthday Experienceâ€.Â The party was such a hit that she decided to offer Chocolate Birthday Parties as part of Loreâ€™s services.
