Wimborne Chocolate Fountain Hire

Regular visitors to the Wimborne Folk Festival will be very familiar with the East Dorset town of Wimborne Minster. Chocolate Fountain Hire became quite familiar with it recently too, after attending the Queen Elizabeth School Year 11 Leavers Ball to provide a chocolate fondue for over 200 guests.

Although not as big as the Folk Festival, this school prom certainly gave the event a run for its money in terms of entertainment and memorability in Wimborne. Chocolate Fountain Hire provided just one of the fantastic features of the night. Aside from our chocolate fountain, accompanied with fresh fruit and bakery items, students on the night were treated to casino tables and a flower stall, as well as DJ’s and live music. Our chocolate fountain and illuminated surround fitted right in with the glamorous decorations,¬† that had obviously taken a lot of time to prepare. Many of the students wore dresses and suits to match the sophisticated interiors – none of the Chocolate Fountain Hire team remember having school proms this good!

Despite the amazing levels of excitement and fun to be had, Chocolate Fountain Hire noted the Wimborne students were extremely polite and well behaved. The same wasn’t necessarily true of the teachers, who had great fun competing to see who could fit the most dips onto a skewer and then into their mouths! This behaviour is usually considered a no-no in chocolate fountain etiquette, but for those who are interested, the winner managed six dips!

If you’re planning a school prom, or you live in Wimborne or the surrounding area of Dorset, Chocolate Fountain Hire are on hand to help make your event extra special. Speak to our experts today to find out how.

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 Hire Dorset

There are more than a couple of reasons to hold a wedding reception in the glamourous penisula of Poole Harbour, Sandbanks. Aside from the well-documented property value and famous residents – Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp lives there – the beach is considered one of the most beautiful in all of the UK, leading national press to dub it “Britain’s Palm Beach”. From the sterling silver sands of Sandbanks to the foliage of the New Forest, it seems there’s a backdrop for every occasion and every mood in Dorset.

Chocolate Fountain Hire visited the Haven Hotel, Poole recently to provide a chocolate fountain for Dawn and Anthony’s wedding reception. The hotel, located on the Sandbanks penisula and boasting spectacular harbour views, is one of the finest function and conferencing venues in Dorset. Chocolate Fountain Hire contemplated some celebrity spotting, but there were far more pressing matters at hand – getting the chocolate fondue fun started!

It wasn’t just the picturesque views of Poole that guests were indulging in. Dawn and Anthony booked two chocolate fountains for family and friends – one large milk chocolate fountain, and one small white chocolate fountain. The combination is always a winning one in our experience, as the large chocolate fondue provides all it’s usual spectacle and fun, while the small chocolate fondue experience gives extra variety and that added “wow” factor. A range of strawberries, mini donuts, marshmallows, pineapple, vanilla fudge and cream profiteroles kept the Dorset guests coming back to the chocolate fountains for more, and the cute white chocolate fountain continued to fascinate the kids.

Two chocolate fountains can add real variety to any event. Whether it’s a small and large fountain, or two large fountains, you can mix and match colours and flavours. Why not have a dark chocolate fountain and a white chocolate fountain? Or a milk chocolate fountain and pink chocolate fountain? The choices are endless.

Anthony and Dawn loved their big day, and guests certainly seemed to as well.

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.
