The Complete Guide to Hiring a Chocolate Fountain for Your Wedding
Hiring a chocolate fountain is a very popular option for people who want to provide their guests with something really special at their wedding reception. Chocolate fountain hire will allow you to provide a fun and tasty attraction for all of the guests, and can help to make the event more glamorous and memorable. No one will be failed to be impressed by an elegant, flowing fountain of chocolate, and everyone loves chocolate after all.
The first thing to do is to research the companies in your area who are able to provide chocolate fountain hire. There may be a few to choose from, so do a quick search online to see what you can find, and make sure you look out for good reviews from previous customers. Then you can simply choose from the most suitable.
Consider the Price
The price of the hire is something that will probably be important to you. Weddings can be expensive, so obviously it makes sense to find a good price for your chocolate fountains. However, remember that a very cheap price is not always a great idea. What if the fountain is low quality and stops working at your wedding? It will be a disaster for the party and will also lead to a lot of wasted chocolate!
Use price as one factor, but make sure that you also look into other factors such as the experience of the provider. A lot of work goes into providing a professional service, so it is best to choose a provider who specialises in chocolate fountains rather than one who just offers them as an added extra.
Choose the Right Size
Chocolate fountains come in all shapes and sizes. If you are having a very large party then a single small fountain may prove to be a frustration to the guests as they will not all be able to enjoy it.
If you are having a large party with many guests, try to find a company offering equipment hire that can provide you with a large fountain, or numerous fountains. By going the extra mile you can ensure that everyone will be happy at your event.
Look for Extras
A chocolate fountain on its own is great, but if it comes with added extras that is even better. For example, you may be able to find a provider who also offers fruit palm trees along with the chocolate fountain hire. These look fantastic and very exotic, and the guests can take the fruit from the trees and dip the pieces into the chocolate.
To Rent or Buy?
If you are considering chocolate fountain hire, you may also think about buying your own fountain. However, this may not be such a great idea. When you hire a chocolate fountain, you will also be able to take advantage of someone setting it up, keeping the area clean and taking it away at the end of the party. An unattended and overflowing fountain of chocolate can be a messy business, and it requires looking after.
If you buy your own you will have to arrange all of this, which will cause more stress and worry on your wedding day. A professional supplier will be able to arrange everything for you, including delivery, supervision, cleaning and removal, making it much easier for you on your big day.
And you have to ask yourself, would you really want to have your own chocolate fountain? After all, it’s not something that you will be using every day.
If you want to hire a chocolate fountain for your wedding reception, it is certain to please all of the guests and make your wedding a memorable one. Just make sure that you take a bit of time choosing the perfect fountain for your event to avoid disappointment.
You know the romance of a chocolate fountain, but are you aware of how easy it is to have one of your own?
We like the darker chocolate dips, and our favorites include the chocolate liquor dips that have just enough chocolate to keep everything rich and dark, decadent with enough liquor, to thin, but not so much that it becomes alcoholic. Let me share with you the recipe:
2 – 16 ounce bags of semi-dark real chocolate morsels
1 cup chocolate liquor
3 cups cocoa oil
Heat to melt chocolate morsels, and place liquid chocolate in fountain. Turn on fountain to keep chocolate warm.
This time of year, chocolate fountains are like a lifeline to party planners. No matter what the cause of the party, the chocolate fountain can be the ultimate buffet choice.
As a hostess, I often think of the best way to serve a centerpiece item, and more often than not, that one item is chocolate. The chocolate fountain offers a diverse way to serve a delightful desert, or even appetizer – if you include fruit as part of your dipping options. More recently, we’ve included sweet rolls, cinnamon rolls, and French toast as part of our dipping items and used the chocolate fountain as a centerpiece on the Brunch Table. Morning tea can be served around a selection of chocolate dipped items as well.
Another favorite list for desserts include: cubed cakes, fruit, and marshmallows. The idea of dipping fresh fruits cut into bite sized pieces into a flowing chocolate fountain can be absolutely decadent, but consider the result if those fruits are dried? Yummy, delicious.
Pretzels, pound cake, strawberries, and cherries are always favorites for almost any event.
Methods of dipping can be anything from fondue forks to skewers.
The more formal the event, the more elegant the skewers will need to be.
