CHOCOLATIER - Chocolate Shop - Streets of Paris Event

Good news, the first of multiple tenants has moved into the building, and it is the Chocolatier.
Surrounded by beautiful bay windows crammed with delicious treats and shaded by pink and brown awnings, the Chocolate Shop is a lovely addition to the building.  
At night, the lights in the windows illuminate the sweets.
On the side are a cute wrought iron table and chair set accented with a trellis and potted plant, a perfect place to sit and enjoy your purchases and a cup of tea.
The inside is bursting with even more goodies displayed in cabinets, glass shelving, and glass cases.  From the ceiling hangs soft lighting (made with tea lights & vellum.)
The pink bags and boxes sitting around the store are from my NEW Chocolate Shop Bags & Boxes collage sheet.
To complement the shop, I’ve created a NEW Chocolate Shop collage sheet filled with posters, signage, and other shop-related images.  There is also a NEW digital image set which contains everything that you will find on the Chocolate Shop and Bags & Boxes collage sheet, plus several awnings and more posters and shop related images.  The image set details are below.
The bay windows, which I think are the star of the shop, are made using easy-to-assemble chipboard kits.  I’ve used two of the three styles for the Chocolatier.  The new Chocolate Shop digital image set contains a series of awnings that are sized to fit the new windows.   
In this video tutorial, I’ll cover architectural changes I made to customize the store, additional furnishings, lighting, bay windows, a wraparound sidewalk, signage, and new image sets.

This collage sheet includes images to decorate the inside and outside of a chocolate, patisserie, or cake shop.  Included are posters, signs, a clock, and chocolate-themed invoices.  Click on the image below to purchase this collage sheet.
This collage sheet contains a variety of Chocolate Shop box and bag designs and sizes.  Some labels fit the round and square cookie tins and the narrow matchbox carried by AlphaStamps, a label that fits a standard small matchbox, and various other sized labels.  Click on the image below to purchase this collage sheet.
This digital image set includes items to decorate the inside and outside of a chocolate, patisserie, or cake shop.  There are 69 images, including those found on the Chocolate Shop & the Chocolate Shop Bags & Boxes collage sheet.  Images included are listed below
  • Paris Shop Scene
  • Wrought Iron Door
  • Clock
  • 15 Posters
  • 6 Signs
  • 2 Window Glass Signs (These fit the 2 column and large center window rectangular bay windows)
  • 7 Bags & Boxes
  • 4 Invoices
  • Five sets of easy-to-assemble window awnings in three styles.  Two of the styles come in both large and small sizes. Included are trim pieces with lettering and trim without allowing you to customize the trim.  The awnings fit the three styles of Rectangular Bay Windows, or you can use them over the windows and doors of the French Quarter Two Story Room Box.
To purchase this digital image set, click on the image below.


NOTE: Since I have covered making the sweets and display cases in other videos, in this tutorial, I’m going to focus on putting the Chocolate Shop together.

Hello Laura
It's a wonderful work! I think you should re-build Paris like this and it would be the most beautiful town in France!
In fact, you can find places like this in France, in others towns like Nantes and Bordeaux!!!!
In Paris, I don't think so, except maybe in some parts like old Montmartre!
Hugs and kisses
