Popcorn and Candy Floss for Kent Wedding

Popcorn and Candy Floss for Kent Wedding

Weddings come in all shapes and sizes and a recent wedding took the chocolate fountain hire team to the seaside town of Broadstairs. We arrived at the Botany Bay hotel which is situated in a beautiful location overlooking the beach and fantastic views of the beach… on a sunny Sunday afternoon what more could you want. Once inside the hotel we were shown where to set up the Popcorn machine and Candy floss which was on a long table next to the dance floor where the DJ was starting to play some background music.
When we were set up we started to make some fresh popcorn so that we had plenty of supplies made for our start time. The bride had requested that we made sweet popcorn; this is done using a special caramel glaze whilst cooking the popcorn and tastes fantastic! After about ten minutes we had plenty of supplies made and had attracted quite an audience who were fascinated by watching the popcorn pop out of its kettle. The bride was one of the first people to use the candy floss; we even managed to get a picture of her before the quest started! From then on we made candy floss to order either on sticks or bags and the popcorn was in cones. The evening was a very laid back family reception which made for a great atmosphere with little boys skidding over the dance floor as they do while girls were trying to dance around them!
We were kept very busy but eventually our time came to an end and we had to pack up for the journey home. But before we did we make lots of supplies of both candy floss and popcorn to leave in bags for the guests to enjoy after we left. We discretely packed away while the guests danced away the rest of the evening.

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.

Keele University Pharmacy Students Rock!

Keele University Pharmacy Students Rock

The Chocolate Fountain Hire attended the Keele University School of Pharmacy Ball for the second year running! This year we were bringing extra goodies in the form of Candy Floss and Popcorn, as well as Chocolate Fountain and Pick and Mix Stand!  With  60 kgs of assorted pick and mix favourites for guests to help themselves to, the  pick and mix hire is always popular. We were asked to bring extra supplies of Giant Strawberries, as this is the organizers favourite! We loaded her up a bag of these before the Ball started so she definitely got some!  With the chocolate fountain set up, the pick and mix stand fully stocked, bags of candy floss made and the popcorn machine full up, it was time to announce that they were open for use.

All of the stands were very well used, with the candy floss being very popular! The pink, fluffy sugar treat was a real favourite with lots of the guests re-discovering the delicious taste!  In the few moments that the student could tear themselves away from the sweet foom there was also a photographer in attendance offering portrait photographs as a momento of the event.The evening was a great success as always and the Pick and Mix stand was stripped out, with guests loading up their bags with coke bottles, mega lollies and jelly beans, enough to nibble on for the rest of the night!
