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 Chocolate Fountain Is a big hit in Portsmouth

Wedding Chocolate Fountain Is a big hit in Portsmouth

Another busy weekend in the world of chocolate fountain hire saw us heading allover the countryside. One such booking took place  in the historic naval City of Portsmouth. Diane and Lee’s wedding reception took place in the Inn Lodge Hotel which is situated on the outskirts of Portsmouth. We arrived and set up the chocolate fountain to be ready in time for the guest to have their main meal, the room was beautifully decorated in pink and white and we colour coordinated the illuminated base accordingly. A lot of the wedding guests were keen to finish their meal and start using the chocolate fountain! After the bride had her first dip on the chocolate fountain the guests needed no encouragement to dip from the chocolate fountain. The bride had chosen a selection of dips including strawberries, grapes doughnuts and  meringues. It was great to see so many guests making use of the chocolate fountain! Eventually it was time to pack up the chocolate fountain and  leave the wedding guests in Portsmouth to enjoy the rest of their evening.

The Spinnaker Tower Chocolate Fountain, Portsmouth

The Spinnaker Tower Chocolate Fountain, Portsmouth

Of all the weird and wonderful venues we’ve attended to supply our legendary chocolate fountain hire, Portsmouth’s Spinnaker Tower certainly ranks as one of the best. This 170 metre tall visitor attraction  – standing two and a half times higher than Nelson’s Column – has been providing breathtaking views over the South Coast for nearly six years. It’s mast-like design is likened to that of a ship’s mast, reflecting Portsmouth Harbour’s rich maritime history. Aside from it’s architectural appeal, the tower is a hotspot for seasonal events, educational trips and even weddings.

So of course, when Paul and Sandy informed us they would be requiring a chocolate fountain in Portsmouth’s premiere attraction, to say we were excited was a bit of an understatement. Chocolate fountain hire in Portsmouth is still very popular, but we were yet to experience one in the Spinnaker Tower!

As if that wasn’t exciting enough for us and our chocolate fondue display, Paul and Sandy then advised us they would be joined by some very special guests in the form of a camera crew – filming for Living TV’s Four Weddings!

In the show, four brides compete to win a dream honeymoon by attending and rating each others weddings. Will Paul and Sandy’s Spinnaker Tower spectacle win them a newly-weds perfect prize? You can find out in November when the episode airs on Living TV. Make sure you keep an eye out for the Chocolate Fountain Hire team – we were busy all night helping the excited guests dip strawberries and fresh fruit into our cascading chocolate fondue fountain.

The views from the Tower are truly fantastic, especially as night fell over the harbour’s horizon in Portsmouth. Chocolate fountain hire was a great choice by the happy couple – our illuminated perspex surround lit up to match the Spinnaker Towers lights, making the whole event glow!

Chocolate fondue is ideal for any event. Here at Chocolate Fountain Hire we embrace venues of all shapes and sizes, working with you and your venue to ensure our entry and exit is professional and on time. Find out more about our chocolate fountains and Chocolate Fountain Hire Portsmouth today.
