Tying the Knot with Plenty of Choc

Bournemouth famous for more than just sprawling beaches and ice-cream. Pick up a copy one of Thomas Hardy’s novels, The Fog, or even Roald Dahl’s The Witches, and you’ll see literary references to this town echoing through the pages today. Furthermore, JRR Tolkein retired there, Mary Shelley is buried there and Oscar Wilde taught there. Who’d have though the town couldĀ  be so rich in literary history?

It has to be said that after visiting Bournemouth as many times as the team at Chocolate Fountain Hire have, we can see why these scribe’s couldn’t stop writing about it!

We visited the sunny seaside town again recently to provide a Belgian chocolate fountain for Jon and Ryan as part of their civil ceremony celebrations. Armed with extra jelly babies at special request, we headed to the gorgeous Chine Hotel in Boscombe Spa for chocolate fondue fun late into the evening.

Guests, as well as the happy couple, were thrilled with our cascading chocolate fondue fountain, returning time and time again for more. Chocolate fountain’s never fail in keeping guests entertained – if music be the food of love, then a chocolate fountain is certainly the food of fun!

Jon and Ryan’s special day was certainly enjoyed by their friends and family, creating another memorable day in Bournemouth. Chocolate Fountain Hire are available to help make your special day, well, special too!

Chocolate Fountains in Bournemouth: Part 2!

Remember we said Bournemouth was one of our most popular locations? Well those Bournemouth folk love chocolate fountain’s so much, the team at Chocolate Fountain Hire have been to two wedding’s there in the last week!

Penny and Adrian returned from their spectacular wedding in Barbados to a wonderful reception at the Village Hotel, Bournemouth. Alongside their Belgian chocolate fountain, they supplied guests with sparkling pink and cream cupcakes instead of traditional wedding cake, which fitted in with the gorgeous colour scheme. The chocolate fondue’s illuminated pink surround fitted in perfectly with the pink theme too, as did our selection of sweet dipping strawberries and pink wafers.

All these visits to the South Coast got Chocolate Fountain Hire thinking what seaside treats would make good dipping items in a chocolate fountain. A Bournemouth stick of rock maybe?

Bournemouth is a great place to plan a wedding ceremony or reception, as it holds the most promise for sunny weather in the summer months. Chocolate fondue fountains provide a great feeling of summer and help create a party atmosphere whether you’re inside or out.

Chocolate Fountain Bournemouth

Bournemouth is the happiest place in the UK according to a 2007 survey, where a hearty 82% of residents questioned said they were very happy with their life. Perhaps it’s to do with all the chocolate fountain’s? Bournemouth has become one of our most regular haunts over the years and we’re always thrilled when we get a chance to visit.

Our most recent visit took us to the Cumberland Hotel – a cliff-top venue with stunning art-deco interiors – for Michelle and Rob’s wedding reception. Chocolate Fountain Hire provided a large milk chocolate fountain with plenty of strawberries, bananas and marshmallows for dipping. The choice for chocolate fondue hire complemented the sumptuous black, white and hot pink colour scheme perfectly, and the chocolate fountain itself looked more than a bit tempting set-up beneath a sparkling chandelier.

Chocolate fondue hire remains a popular favourite for wedding receptions and civil partnership ceremonies. It encourages interaction around a common focal point, and gives everyone a chocolate fountain treat in the process!

Rob and Michelle’s guests had a wonderful time and proved there may be some truth in that survey. Happiest place in the UK or not though, you always know that where there’s smiles and chocolatey fingers in Bournemouth, there’s never a chocolate fountain far away.
