Why do we provide chocolate fondue pots instead of a fountain?

Chocolate fondue pots are used because they take less oil than fountains.  This gives the chocolate a richer taste.  Some chocolate fountains have as much as 1 cup of oil for every 2-3 cups of chocolate.  Additionally, we have seen too many people “double-dip” or stick their fingers in the the actual chocolate fountain.  It kind of grosses us out and we don’t want your guest to be grossed out if they see this happen.

What is a grand curtain entrance?

It is your special day so we think you should make a grand entrance.  The best way to understand this is for us to show you while on a personal tour.

If we told you, it would not be a surprise!  Just think, it is something fun and very rarely seen.  It can happen at the conclusion of a high point in the event like the announcement, first dance, end of the night, etc.  Your guest won’t even see what is going “down” until it happens.
