Praline Fountain in Bicester

Praline flavoured Chocolate Fountain Hire in Bicester

On a very very wet Saturday in June the chocolate fountain hire team travelled to Bicester. Our destination was  a picturesque Manor House to provide our stunning 5 tier chocolate fountain for an 80th birthday party! With our party packages you can chose between milk chocolate, white chocolate and even dark chocolate. However the birthday girl had requested something a bit different for her party! Our fountain was filled to the brim with delicious Praline flavoured chocolate and the smell was amazing!

Chocolate Fountain Arrives

We arrived early to set up. The party was set in the grounds on the house and what a party it was set to be! The chocolate fountain was due set up inside a tent at the top of the field opposite an exciting looking helicopter simulator!  However we soon moved inside! Along with our treats there was a candyfloss stand, popcorn cart, candy buffet and even a pizza van!

To entertain the family and friends they were spoilt for choice! A giant inflatable pirate ship, a bubble bounce house and even a mini golf course to name but a few!

Birthday Chocolate Fountain

Quickly word spread between the guests that the chocolate was ready and they ran to great us! Fortunately as we were inside so the guests could hide from the rain while enjoying the tasty treats! The birthday girl had had a look at our list of dipping items but decided to keep it simple with just fresh juicy strawberries and fluffy marshmallows! Perfect choices to compliment the heavenly praline chocolate!

In between the bursts of rain we were lucky enough for some beautiful sunshine and the guests made full use of these moments getting involved in the activities and tucking into the tasty treats dotted around the grounds! We ran for 3 hours and this was plenty of time for everyone to eat their fill! We packed up and left the guests to enjoy their afternoon!

Pre Christmas Chocolate Fountain Party in Somerset

Pre Christmas Chocolate Fountain Party in Somerset.

On a very windy Saturday the chocolate fountain hire team travelled to Cheddar to provide a chocolate fountain and fruit palm tree for a party at the Fox and Goose Pub. We arrived nice and early to set up in the entrance hall and guests were amazed to see the fruit palm tree come to life! The hotel was closed to the public for the night as staff and locals enjoyed a night of festivities before the Christmas season started.
Our majestic fruit palm trees come in 3 different sizes and are perfect for all sizes of party!

With over two hundred and fifty pieces of fruit or the smallest and over five hundred on the tallest there is always plenty for everyone! We use freshly cored out pineapples to create the tree trunk and decorate this with vibrant strawberries, succulent melon and bright kiwi fruit slices! All of the delicious fresh fruit can be enjoyed either alone or smothered in delicious Belgian chocolate!
We started the chocolate fountain flowing and everyone was soon enticed by the smell of melting Belgian chocolate drifting down the corridor! The guests tucked into mini donuts, fresh strawberries and chocolate brownies all drenched in the delicious warm milk chocolate! They delighted in the whole dipping experience and were thrilled at being able to enjoy a healthy snack alongside a naughty one!
After many delicious dips, and a few guests asking for further information for their own parties next year, we discreetly packed away the fountain. We left the remaining fresh fruits on plates for the guests to enjoy throughout the rest of the night and left them to enjoy their last night off of the season!

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.

Thank you to the Olympic Volunteers from Network Rail!

Thank you to the Olympic Volunteers from Network Rail!

Here at Chocolate Fountain Hire, we were very excited to be asked to provide a chocolate fountain at three very special events. The events were to thank the Olympic Volunteers who so ably directed visitors around the train network to get to the Olympic events. When Network Rail were first tasked with the job of getting the visitors around the various sites and stadiums for the 14 days of the games, their motto was ‘sport not transport’ basically saying they wanted newspaper headlines to be about the excellent sporting achievements and not transport problems. They succeeded! The plan for the evening was for the guests to arrive at between 5pm and 5.30pm and to chat, have drinks and canapés. Then the highlight of the evening and introduction by the brilliant Alex Broker, who was also a presenter of the Channel 4’s The Last Leg. He did a question and answer session with an Olympian athlete and Had the audience rolling around with laughter!!! One the first night we had Laura Trott who won 2 gold medals.

Both Mat and Louise queued up to get pictures! The medals are surprising large and heavy! On the second evening we had Jody Cundy, the Para Olympian infamously disqualified 1km time trial, but still proudly displaying his bronze, and on the third evening we saw Louis Smith and his silver medal from the men’s pommel horse final. It was a great three days and the chocolate was enjoyed very much by all of the guests. A roaming photographer captured moments for the audience  to treasure! This was one of the occasions though when the chocolate fountain team was honored to be part of something as fantastic as the Olympic Games.
