LVS Celebrate The Queens Jubilee The Chocolate Way

LVS Celebrate The Queens Jubilee The Chocolate Way.

Here at the the chocolate fountain hire team we love a good party, and what could be better than a ‘street’ party!  LVS Junior School were getting into the spirit of The Diamond Jubilee Celebrations by having a street party on their playing fields, followed by chocolate fountain for pudding! It was great! The children were all dressed in mufti and some had flags and union jack hats, and union jack tee-shirts and even face paints! They all looked wonderfully patriotic!

The children all sat in rows of chairs on long tables eating triangle sandwiches with the crusts cut off and drinking pop, then it was time for the main event, the chocolate! We set up two chocolate fountains in the schools hall, a little apart from each other, and decorated the table with bunting. The children were allowed in by the classroom  and they helped themselves to one goodie on a stick, dunked it in the warm chocolate, then took it outside to eat.

The sugar coated donuts were particularly good today, and they were the most popular item, followed closely by scrummy chocolate brownies. The luscious fresh strawberries, pineapple and grapes were only eaten by the grown ups!  After every child had had about 3 or 4 or maybe 5 dips each, and were all smothered in Chocolate on hands, faces and clothes, the Head Teacher said that was enough and the children went back out to play and enjoy the sun. The Chocolate Fountain Team really enjoyed getting into the spirit of the long weekend, bring on the Bank Holidays. We were really impressed with the good behaviour from the children and such a well organised day for everyone!

18th Birthday Chocolate Treat

18th Birthday Chocolate Treat

On Saturday 7th March the chocolate fountain hire team joined up with the great catering team “the jolly cricketers” to provide some delicious treats for an 18th birthday party in Buckinghamshire. Celebrating in a beautiful marquee in the garden grounds we swiftly set up our large 5 tier chocolate fountain on a table near the bar. Also setting up was a great DJ and a stylish Sushi Bar!

The guests arrived and were treated to delicious canapés and freshly made sushi. Tucking in, the guests were thrilled with the food and keen to start on the delicious desert – our Belgian Milk Chocolate fountain! With an unlimited choice of dips the guests enjoyed fresh strawberries, mini doughnuts and chocolate brownies to name but a few! Drenching them in the divine melted chocolate was fun to do and even better to eat! They enjoyed the treats for 3 hours until the DJs beats took over and they shifted their focus to dancing the night away!

All aboard in Portsmouth for Warrior Ball

All aboard in Portsmouth for Warrior Ball

On a sunny spring Saturday in April the chocolate fountain hire team travelled to Portsmouth Naval Base to provide our decadent chocolate fountain and retro candy floss machine on the HMS Warrior for a Nautical Themed Charity Ball.

After an interesting  set up on the lower decks of the historic warship we were ready to go! We protected the floors around both areas with special floor coverings and waited patiently for the guests to finish their dinners! As soon as they were allowed through they rushed with anticipation for a taste of the heavenly melted Belgian milk chocolate, drenched richly over our display of over 15 different varieties of dipping items including marshmallows, cream filled profiteroles and of course freshly sliced strawberries!

Across the deck from the fountain the candy floss machine was displayed and to fit in with the nautical theme we alternated red and blue coloured candy floss throughout the night! With a blue raspberry flavour and cherry flavour the guests were thrilled with the display and tastes that sent them reeling back to their childhoods!

With a free bar and many other exciting treats for the guests they enjoyed the use of the ship until midnight when they headed home with full tummies and sore heads!

Wedding for Andy and Kerrie

Wedding for Andy and Kerrie

I was lucky enough to get to re visit the wonderful Coombe Abbey Hotel in Coventry to do a chocolate fountain for newly weds and Andy and Kerrie. It had been a perfect April day, warm, blue skies and a beautiful balmy evening. The whole hotel is stunning and steeped in history, with antique paintings at every turn. The room I set up the chocolate fountain  in was lovely, lit with silver candelabras, with just the light from our illuminated base and the disco, it created a very ambient mood.

The chocolate fountain was used steadily all evening by guests having a break from dancing to the music and chatting. We decorated the surround with china dishes filled to the brim with scrummy treats chosen by the bride and groom! It was a great evening and the bride and groom looked to be having a great time. As I was packing up to leave they came over to thank me for coming, but it is always a privilege to be involved in something as special as a wedding day, a day to treasure for always.

A chocolate treat at the launch of the Blackberry Z10

To launch Blackberry’s new Z10 they decided to treat the employees at the Carphone warehouse to a chocolaty treat!! On a late evening in the fashionable Notting hill a few select staff members were invited to a stylish soirée to learn more about the functions and features of the sleek new phone. Alongside canapés and cocktails they indulged in decadent treats drenched in smooth milk chocolate! After a late night of drinking, dancing and dunking they headed off into the night to get a good night sleep ready for a hard days work.

Bright eyed and bushy tailed the chocolate fountain hire team were up with the birds to prepare the fountain at the Carphone Warehouse Headquarters. By the time the staff were arriving the scent of melted Belgian chocolate was wafting through the building, almost enough to distract them from their morning Starbucks! Alongside the chocolate fountain hire team was a Blackberry team armed with information and goodie bags to share with all! After a long and informative day the staff left with full minds and bellys!

Beautiful Wedding at Rock Haven, Cornwall

It was a beautiful sunny day in Cornwall when chocolate fountain hire arrived at Rock Haven to set up two chocolate fountains in a marquee in the garden. The garden was beautiful with a pond and a swing.the couple had requested two large chocolate fountains, one with white chocolate and one with milk chocolate. We set up the chocolate fountains in the corner on round tables next to each other, each with an illuminated base and it looked stunning. The chocolate flowed beautifully and the fresh dips, including strawberries, fresh cream profiteroles, mini sugared donuts, fresh pineapple and marshmallows!

21st Birthday Hawaii Style!!!!

21st Birthday Hawaii Style

We were asked to provide a chocolate fountain and fruit palm tree for a Hawaiian themed 21st birthday party for twins!  We took the trip to East Hanney which is not far from Oxford and  arrived plenty of time before the party started to be set up before guests arrived. The fruit palm tree was perfect for the theme, with the real palm leaves standing 3ft above the pineapple trunk covered in fresh fruit!  The guests were treated to yummy piña coladas when they arrived and a gorgeous hog roast with fresh salads. The chocolate fountain was set up next to the fruit palm tree, and after the champagne toast, the guests started eating the warm creamy Belgian chocolate with the selection of dipping items including marshmallows and profiteroles. The fruit on the tree started being eaten, after we persuaded the guests it was to be eaten and not just admired!

Champagne and Chocolate For Reading birthday party

Champagne and Chocolate For Reading birthday party

A recent booking took the chocolate fountain hire team to Reading to provide a chocolate fountain to celebrate a special birthday party. We set up the chocolate fountain long before the birthday girl arrived so it was ready flowing with Belgium milk chocolate in anticipation of her arrival. There  were lots of guests ready to meet her and  help celebrate her birthday and of course  help to eat the  chocolate fountain with its vast selection of lush dipping items. A part of our all inclusive party hire packages we provide an unlimited variety of dips, this means you can chose from our list of options and have as many different varieties as you would like!

After the birthday girl had had her dip the fountain was open to all of the guests and they didn’t need a lot of encouragement. The function room was  superbly decorated with a selection of photographs of the birthday girl which looked great along with balloons and of course the champagne table! We had a fun evening with the guests and  soon it was time to leave Reading and head home whilst the DJ got the party guests dancing.
