Hiring chocolate fountains is growing very popular across Dublin and Ireland – and they keep delighting guests wherever they turn up.
They’re great for wedding receptions and parties. Imagine having a chocolate fountain to welcome guests in your venue’s reception area. Or as luxurious little bonus after dessert . It’s fun, delicious and makes any event feel like a really special celebration. But there are common mistakes people make when hiring one. Here’s our advice for making sure the chocolate fountain is a sensation at your event or wedding.
1. Get Supervisors
Some chocolate fountain hire services will just install it and disappear. This could lead to chaos. Lots of people worry about cleanliness and hygiene with chocolate fountains, but if you have a professional service with trained staff to supervise and help your guests it will be completely hassle-free.
2. Keep it Indoors
Some people want to set-up their choc fountain outdoors – which is possible – but it’s often not a good idea. If the weather is very bad you could have rainy chocolate sprayed around by howling wind; if the weather’s too good, you could attract swarms of insects. So it’s best to keep it inside where you can treat your guests in the comfort of your venue.
3. Special Touches
Why not make your chocolate fountain extra-special with your unique selection of dippy treats. You could choose from fresh fruit including strawberries, grapes, pineapple and melon balls. Or for a super-sweet tooth, you can include marshmallows, fudge, turkish delight or cookies.
Feel daring? Maybe you could ask your fountain supplier about some dipping chillis. Some choco fountain fans in America have even used cheese and bacon! It’s your party so have it your way.
4. Use the Pros
Make sure you hire a professional service. Some people might hire-out equipment at weekends to make some cash on the side, or even use their own personal fountains. Stay away from those services and save time and hassle by hiring experts.We’ve heard lots of stories about amateur services from clients who got their fingers burned before they found us – some poor folks even paid deposits and then never heard from the supplier again!
You can guess how professional a service is just by looking at their website. Once you’ve ruled out the shoddy ones, then speak to your suppliers and ask for references from previous clients. Professionals won’t have any problem with this.
