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!

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!!

Chocolate Fountain Dorset

Chocolate Fountain Hire are regularly approached by catering companies to provide a white label service. Recently, Chocolate Fountain Hire headed to Sherbourne’s Eastbury Hotel – a stunning boutique venue surrounded by an acre of greenland in Dorset.

Chocolate fountain’s make a fantastic desert option at events, whether you’re serving a buffet or a sit down meal. Because the chocolate fondue is a such a visual feature, it can act as decoration until it’s used, and can be used at any time. A chocolate fondue fountain is certainly one of the most cost effective ways of providing desert for your guests, with costs at less than £4 per head in many instances.

Our chocolate fountain display was a stunning elegant touch for the pink and white themed wedding reception at the Dorset venue. Guests were treated to a scrumptious hog roast, before tucking into our cascading Belgian chocolate fountain with strawberries, marshmallows and fresh fruit. Our chocolate fountain provided plenty of spectacle and entertainment for the Dorset guests, while providing a sweet tasty treat at the same time.

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!
