Sweet treats at Buddy’s Ball in Southampton

Sweet treats at Buddy’s Ball in Southampton

An old friend of ours called us about 4 months ago to tell us about his new baby son Joseph, also known as Buddy (his due date was x-mas eve and his nickname was Buddy the Elf’ after the film) Lewis’s son had been born with Congenital Myasthenic Syndrone which resulted in a lot of hospital visits and plenty of long stays as well. Lewis and his wife Donna decided to hold a fundraising ball to raise funds to update and revitalise the playroom with a sensory area , a play area and a quiet area for the young adults. We at Chocolate a Fountain Hire jumped at the chance to help an old friend out, and for such a worthy cause! We decided to offer our Photo Booth, chocolate fountain, popcorn and candy floss.

The theme of the Ball was ‘circus’ and The room at The MacDonald Botley Park Hotel was decorated beautifully with balloons and trick mirrors and a box of props on the table including hats, wigs big glasses and red clown noses! After the guests had eaten their delicious dinner and bided on the auction prizes, it was time to dance, and enjoy the goodies we provided. The photo booth was busy right from the start with guests having funny pictures taken.

The chocolate fountain was very popular, and the party goers were soon finding their appetites again for the chocolate coated delights, and the beautiful candy floss and the wonderful smelling popcorn. At the end of the Ball , Lewis and Donna were thrilled with how it had all gone, and were delighted to discover they had made over £14000.00 ! A wonderful wonderful evening for all.

Teenage Party at London Film Museum

Teenage Party at London Film Museum

A recent booking took chocolate fountain hire to the heart of London to provide a  chocolate fountain for a  joint 16th Birthday Party. We arrived before the  guests in order to set up the chocolate fountain and  have it flowing before any guests arrived. The  party was at London Film museum situated in Covent Garden. It wasn’t the first time that we  had  been invited to the museum so we knew where to set up o that everything was running smoothly!

The party was a  joint 16th birthday party and in no time at all the venue was  full of teenagers  all eager to get the party going, and  it didn’t take long  for the DJ to start pumping out tunes and of course the chocolate fountain was  instantly busy. The  evening was a  mixture of disco dancing relaxing with friends  in the  chill out area  and  sampling  some of the food that the chefs  had come up with not to mention a fantastic chocolate fountain for pudding! Towards the end of the evening there was a silent disco and this signaled the end of the chocolate fountain hire and  we packed up the fountain and headed home while the party continued.

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!

Lights Dim on Chocolate Fountain and Fruit Palm Tree at Army Party

Lights Dim on Chocolate Fountain and Fruit Palm Tree at Army Party

Recently chocolate fountain hire were asked to provide a large chocolate fountain and fruit palm tree for an army mess function Christmas party. We made the trip to Aldershot in Hampshire  allowing plenty of time to make the fruit palm tree and set up the fountain. When we arrived the guest were eating their starters so we set up the fountain then began to make the fruit palm tree. This was made more interesting by the power cut however this didn’t deter us, whilst the guests ate their starters by candle light we  made the fruit palm tree also by candle light!

Eventually power was restored and guests soon made their way to the chocolate fountain, which was  provided with a vast array of dipping items and  also the fruit palm tree which looked very fetching with its palm leaves swaying as guests removed the fresh fruit that we had prepared. The fruit from the palm tree can either be eaten from its cocktail stick or dipped into the chocolate fountain and  eaten with a lovely coating of Belgium chocolate.
