The minute you walk into Tempur, the hot, new chocolate shop in Germantown, you are transported into a different world. According to Staci Bockman, the marketing director, that’s the point: “We want you to feel as though you’ve left Nashville and hopped a plane to a small shoppe in Europe when you walk into Tempur. Every detail has French or Belgian influences.” This is what sets Tempur apart from other chocolate shops around Nashville- you won’t find Tempur’s quality of product anywhere but in their store!
Tempur Chocolate Shop began with a passion for chocolate, wine, and Europe, everyone’s three favorite things. The owners both spent a considerable amount of time in France, Belgium, and Switzerland, and they wanted to bring authentic European chocolate back home to Nashville. One even holds a culinary degree from Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, so you can be assured that this chocolate is legit.
The environment of Tempur is very laid back and relaxing, making it a perfect place for meetings with your wedding planner. They also offer a 12-seat community table for consultations and tastings, where they can help brides create their dream weddings with the help of their delicious chocolates. “We love sitting with brides and their wedding planners to come up with unique ideas that no one else has,” says Bockman. Tempur specializes in custom “show piece” sculptures that can include your and your groom’s monogram to make your day even more special and delicious!
If you want something other than chocolate, Tempur has you covered. They often pair chocolate with their special wines and cheeses, and they are there to help you learn the proper way to enjoy these three products in conjunction. They also offer coffee and a traditional French breakfast, so you can come to Tempur at any time of the day. However, their handmade truffles are by far their most popular item, especially the white chocolate cinnamon hibiscus flavor.
Since Tempur is so new, consider utilizing them as a vendor for your wedding- they still have a lot of open dates for the coming year. Tempur truffles will certainly set your wedding apart and make it the most delicious one your guests will ever get the pleasure of attending! If you have already selected your vendors, still plan to stop by Tempur for a chocolate truffle board and some wine. You won’t regret it!
