Something neat

We decided to add something really neat to the wedding. While searching online we came across chocolate fountains for weddings and events. This is so unbelievably cool. We have a long list to choose from of stuff to dip into the chocolate. 

  • Strawberries
  • Kiwi
  • Pineapple
  • Grapes
  • Oranges
  • Apple Slices
  • Bananas (frozen or fresh)
  • Marachino Cherries
  • Pears
  • Raspberries
  • Blueberries/Blackberries
  • Honeydew Melons/Melon Balls
  • Mandarin Orange
  • Cantalope/Melon Balls
  • Mango/Papaya
  • Star Fruit (Carambola)
  • Dragon Fruit
  • Kumquats
  • Fresh Coconut Chunks
  • Dried Apricots
  • Other Dried Fruits

I think the easiest choices will probably be bananas, pineapple, marachino cherries and possibly coconut chunks. The list is amazing, but we aren’t sure how well we will like the other kind of fruit with the chocolate. I have suggested that we buy a bunch of them and use my fondue pot to try them out. I know that the kids would absolutely love that experiment.

That is an awesome idea. I will have a fondue party for all of the bridesmaids and the kids. We can try all of the fruits with the chocolate and have fun at the same time. I can even plan some games for us to play too. I will have to make a meat and cheese platter to offset the sweets, but that is really easy to do. My daughter loves to help me when I make those.

Oh, perhaps one of them has a fondue pot we can use for the cheese instead of a platter. That would be awesome! I will have to pick a date for the party soon. I could make it a Valentines party since that holiday is coming up soon. We can decorate the house with a Valentines theme and make it a really great party all around. I know I am getting excited over this, but I love parties and planning  them is lots of fun, especially when the kids and I make the decorations. With all of the rainy weather we have had lately, I have been hard pressed to find stuff for the kids to do indoors. A project like this would be perfect for the days when we are stuck in the house. I am on it now. The planing has officially begun. Woot!
