Sathiyan weds Thanila in Croydon with a Fruity treat

Chocolate Fountain Hire is a popular wedding treat all year round and what more could you ask for on Easter Sunday. We were booked to help celebrate the wedding of Sathiyan and Thanila in Croydon. The venue was dressed beautifully in purple and gold and the bride looked stunning in a purple gown encrusted with gold. All the tables were adorned with fresh flowers and purple organza. We provided a chocolate fountain and a medium fruit palm tree. A medium tree stands 3 ft tall and contains approximately 375 pieces of delicious fresh fruit! The fruit which is water melon, cantaloupe melon, satsumas, strawberries, kiwi fruit and pineapple, is cut into bite size pieces and stuck onto a ‘tree’ of cored out pineapples. The tree then has real palm leaves arranged in the top. The end result is stunning and tastes great!  The guests very soon discovered how delicious it was, and it was stripped bare very quickly, just what we like to see!

Tripple fountain Fun Staff christmas Party

At Chocolate Fountain Hire we love nothing more than being invited back to provide chocolatle fountains for previous customers.We were very pleased to be asked back to Alfa Laval to provide Chocolate Fountains and a fruit palm tree for their annual Christmas party held in their offices. We were asked to do something different this year, so we provided three small chocolate fountains, a medium fruit palm tree and a candy floss machine! The chocolate fountains were milk, white and a red one! We make the red fountain by adding organic natural food colouring to white chocolate, and it goes as red as we like! We arranged the chocolate fountains in the middle of a table and wrapped festive red organza around them all, and dotted the dips in their white china bowls around them. The fruit palm tree was covered with fresh melon, Satsuma’s, pineapple, strawberries, kiwi fruit and grapes, it looks delicious. The chocolate fountains were very well used with guests enjoying cream filled profiteroles; mini sugared donuts, marshmallows, fudge, jelly babies, pink wafers and lots more! The candy floss was a HUGE success, with guests queuing up for baby pink candy floss on a stick, and it smelt delicious! The whole Christmas party was lots of fun, and the employees of Alfa Laval went back to work in the afternoon full of fresh fruit, red chocolate and candy floss!!

Chocolate Fountain Hire for New Year’s Eve at Highley Manor

Chocolate Fountain Hire for New Year’s Eve at Highley Manor

We were excited to be asked to provide a chocolate fountain and fruit palm tree at  a New Year’s Eve party at Highley Manor in Haywards Heath for Sarah. It’s always lovely to be asked to cater at people’s special occasions, and a New Year party is no exception. We were to be the ‘pudding’ after the guests had tucked into ham, beef and poached salmon. We were very popular! Sarah had also asked us to provide a fruit palm tree, which we filled with fresh strawberries, melon, grapes, kiwi, clementines and fresh pineapple. The tree stood a very impressive 7ft on the table, including 3ft of real palm leaves! Guests are sometimes a little reluctant to eat from the fruit trees as they look like works of art, but these guests quickly realised that it was for eating, and the tree was soon looking a little bare! After supper, Chocolate and cheese, the dancing started in earnest, with people milling around,occasionally nibbling a piece of fruit, or a jelly baby from the chocolate fountain dips. On the stroke of midnight, Champagne was drunk and auld Lang sayne was sung, and the chocolate fountain hire team had a little kiss and a hug and crept out of the party, leaving it in full swing. What a great party!

No False starts at Worcester race course

No False starts at Worcester race course for students chocolate fountain

One of the last parties before Christmas involved us heading up to Worcester to provide a chocolate fountain for a student Christmas ball. We arrived in plenty of time and  set up the chocolate fountain. In no time at all the chocolate fountain was flowing with Belgian milk chocolate with a selection of dips including strawberries, banana, donuts, profiteroles, brownies, marshmallows. It didn’t take the party goers  too long to take advantage of the chocolate fountain. We always bring extra dips for these kind of events as we know how hungry students can be, and we didn’t take too many home with us  (the students of Worcester are a hungry lot and love their chocolate).

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.

Guests can either just eat the fruit or dip it into the chocolate fountain.

Next to set up was the chocolate fountain which we did in plenty of time before the guests arrived. The chocolate fountain stands 7 foot tall when its situated on  a  table and looks divine with Belgium milk chocolate flowing over its 5 tiers. With the guests starting to arrive it didn’t take long before the chocolate fountain and was in use, with guests choosing from the dipping items that we provided and using the fruit palm tree. The bride and groom soon arrived and had some photographs taken while they had their first dip from the fountain after that even more guests arrived and the fountain became very busy. Our time was gone in a flash and soon it was time to pack up and leave the guests to enjoy the rest of their party, but not before we were treated some amazing food, it was nice to see some familiar faces as this was the second wedding reception that we have provided a chocolate fountain and  fruit palm trees for this family in Manchester this year.
