Tripple chocolate to see in the new year

Tripple chocolate to see in the new year

New Year’s Eve and the Chocolate Fountain Hire Team travelled to the picturesque village of New Milton in the New Forest for a party to see in 2012! A beautiful marquee was the setting for an amazing party. The guests were treated to a fantastic meal of Salmon or Steak with an amazing assortment of freshly prepared roasted vegetables and rice dishes. Our stunning 5 tier chocolate fountain was the dessert for this occasion and was filled with luxurious Belgian White chocolate and was complimented by 2 smaller chocolate fountains, one with milk chocolate and the other with dark chocolate.  The guests enjoyed a huge variety of  dips including gingerbread , profiteroles and the favourite of all our fresh strawberries, the hardest choice though was which type of chocolate to dip them into!!

There was a joint celebration as one of the guests had their birthday that day and his main choice of celebration for his 72nd birthday was to indulge in the 2012 shaped vodka ice luge.  The live band played throughout the evening and the guests danced their way into 2012 with champagne and good friends!

On Saturday the Chocolate Fountain Hire Team travelled to Salisbury Guild Hall for a Christmas Party for The Emergency Department.  The Hall was lavishly decorated in burgundy and gold and the guests were treated to a full night of canapés, dancing and of course our stunning display of Chocolate Fountain.  The local doctors and nurses enjoyed a variety of naughty dips including fudge, marshmallows and brownies and some slightly healthier choices like strawberries mango and melon.  In between delicious Belgian chocolate bites the guests had the change to gamble on the casino or take advantage of the very entertaining photo booth, including various different costumes!!

Wedding Chocolate Fountain and Fruit Palm Tree Hire in Brockenhurst

Wedding Chocolate Fountain and Fruit Palm Tree Hire in Brockenhurst

Recently the Chocolate Fountain Hire Team headed for the New Forest, and the beautiful Brockenhurst for a wedding. When we arrived the balloons were being strung together outside to make an arch way for the guests to walk through. We quickly unloaded our equipment, including two large fruit palm trees, which we had made at home. In the hall, which had been decorated with chair covers and organza tie backs we set up the two large fruit palm trees on a large table.

They looked stunning, standing 7ft tall with their real palm leaves on the top. Each tree contains approx 500 pieces of fresh fruit, strawberries, cantaloupe melon, honeydew melon, satsumas, pineapple, kiwi fruit, and water melon. All the fruit is freshly prepared on the day in bite sized pieces, and put onto the tree with cocktail sticks. Alongside the fruit palm trees was the chocolate fountain- the main centre piece for the wedding. The chocolate fountain was soon set up and  running with Belgium milk chocolate and  guest could choose from the selection of dipping items that surrounded the fountain or even choose some fruit from the fruit palm tree and  dip it into the chocolate fountain.

Wedding Chocolate Fountain Hire in Christchurch

Wedding Chocolate Fountain Hire in Christchurch

It was the most glorious day when Katie and Richard had their wedding reception at The Manor in Christchurch on the outskirts of Bournemouth. The 5 star restaurant with guest accommodation was a wonderful setting, overlooking fields, and so peaceful. We set up the Chocolate Fountain in the open area by the patio doors, and the chocolate flowed beautifully with the late afternoon sun reflecting from the shiny chocolate. We illuminated our display in a pale purple to compliment the beautiful colour scheme.

The fruit, strawberries, pineapple, satsumas and grapes, all freshly prepared by the team was very popular with the wedding guests. The gorgeous bride Katie and her groom Richard came and had their picture taken at the fountain before the children came and had their fill. The Manor in Christchurch was a lovely place to spend the evening, and the Chocolate Fountain Team certainly love their jobs at beautiful venues like these!!

Tying the Knot with Plenty of Choc

Bournemouth famous for more than just sprawling beaches and ice-cream. Pick up a copy one of Thomas Hardy’s novels, The Fog, or even Roald Dahl’s The Witches, and you’ll see literary references to this town echoing through the pages today. Furthermore, JRR Tolkein retired there, Mary Shelley is buried there and Oscar Wilde taught there. Who’d have though the town could  be so rich in literary history?

It has to be said that after visiting Bournemouth as many times as the team at Chocolate Fountain Hire have, we can see why these scribe’s couldn’t stop writing about it!

We visited the sunny seaside town again recently to provide a Belgian chocolate fountain for Jon and Ryan as part of their civil ceremony celebrations. Armed with extra jelly babies at special request, we headed to the gorgeous Chine Hotel in Boscombe Spa for chocolate fondue fun late into the evening.

Guests, as well as the happy couple, were thrilled with our cascading chocolate fondue fountain, returning time and time again for more. Chocolate fountain’s never fail in keeping guests entertained – if music be the food of love, then a chocolate fountain is certainly the food of fun!

Jon and Ryan’s special day was certainly enjoyed by their friends and family, creating another memorable day in Bournemouth. Chocolate Fountain Hire are available to help make your special day, well, special too!

Chocolate Fountain Bournemouth

Bournemouth is the happiest place in the UK according to a 2007 survey, where a hearty 82% of residents questioned said they were very happy with their life. Perhaps it’s to do with all the chocolate fountain’s? Bournemouth has become one of our most regular haunts over the years and we’re always thrilled when we get a chance to visit.

Our most recent visit took us to the Cumberland Hotel – a cliff-top venue with stunning art-deco interiors – for Michelle and Rob’s wedding reception. Chocolate Fountain Hire provided a large milk chocolate fountain with plenty of strawberries, bananas and marshmallows for dipping. The choice for chocolate fondue hire complemented the sumptuous black, white and hot pink colour scheme perfectly, and the chocolate fountain itself looked more than a bit tempting set-up beneath a sparkling chandelier.

Chocolate fondue hire remains a popular favourite for wedding receptions and civil partnership ceremonies. It encourages interaction around a common focal point, and gives everyone a chocolate fountain treat in the process!

Rob and Michelle’s guests had a wonderful time and proved there may be some truth in that survey. Happiest place in the UK or not though, you always know that where there’s smiles and chocolatey fingers in Bournemouth, there’s never a chocolate fountain far away.

Chocolate Fountain Hire Dorset

From the seaside venues of Bournemouth to the manor houses and estates of the New Forest, there are so many picturesque venues for weddings in Dorset. Chocolate Fountain Hire recently visited just one of these idyllic venues, the Parley Manor in Christchurch, for Ian and Amy’s wedding reception.

The happy couple had tied the knot in Christchurch earlier that day, before dipping into two chocolate fondues. One large Belgian milk chocolate fountain was accompanied by one smaller dark chocolate fountain and a huge range of dips. Guests at Dorset’s Parley Manor enjoyed mini donuts, marshmallows, pineapple and strawberries whilst taking in the stunning surroundings.

Here at Chocolate Fountain Hire we love visiting events in Dorset, where the range of locations and outdoor scenery make special events totally memorable. The great weather the south usually enjoys means a lot of events in Dorset choose a chocolate fondue fountain for that extra summer-feeling.

Chocolate Fountain Hire Bournemouth

We can never get enough chocolate here at Chocolate Fountain Hire. Bournemouth can’t seem to get enough too! One local hair salon surprised their clients by throwing an Easter themed bash and wearing bonnets whilst giving out chocolate eggs. It was our large Belgian milk chocolate fountain that acted as centrepiece however, surrounded by marshmallows, strawberries, mini donuts and pineapple chunks for dipping.

Clients and staff alike tucked into the chocolate fondue, while a circus performer on stilts convinced passers-by to head inside for a free consultation!

Chocolate fountains are a great interactive tool not just for birthday’s and weddings. Whether you’re holding a corporate event, or a party for your favourite clients, Chocolate Fountain Hire in Bournemouth offer great solutions when you need a fun talking point.
