Ta Da!! After a little while in the making it’s finally here and ready to hire! Designed and built by us here at The Memory Knot Company, our brand new hot chocolate drinks cart is the first of its kind in Cumbria, possibly the UK! The idea of a hot drinks station came about through the popularity of some photos re-pinned by Jaimie (our social media guru) onto one of our Pinterest boards. The pictures showed a hot chocolate station set up on a table for winter wedding guests to enjoy.
The light bulb moment happened and we thought, “what if we combine the concept of a candy cart with the idea of a hot chocolate drinks station”... no-one has done that before to our knowledge!
Well that was it... Andrew was cajoled into getting out his saw and tape measure. After some head scratching and a little swearing along with some unhelpful weather conditions, Andrew has finished it. It was not an easy task, as the cart had to be collapsible and needed to fit into the back of an estate car... Hmmm!
Jaimie gave it her girly touch by hand painting “Baby, it’s cold outside!” onto the sign and added the hanging mini Christmas trees with fairy lights to give a cosy wintery feel.
All the signs are hand-made by Jaimie too along with the idea of having lights in the roof and winter wonderland themed music playing from the cart... a proper team effort from The Memory Knot Company to produce this all-singing-all-dancing hire item that your guests will love!
We recently showcased the hot chocolate drinks cart for the first time at the Askham Hall wedding fayre. We had many positive comments and interest in hiring the cart for wedding guests to enjoy.
We hope you’ll agree that our hot chocolate cart looks rather handsome and would be an attractive addition to any event, not to mention appreciated by your guests. Let’s face it; most of us have been there... stood outside the Church or venue while photos are being taken and at certain times of the year it gets pretty chilly!
Our new hot chocolate drinks cart is the perfect solution as not only can your guests make a hot chocolate with all the trimmings while they wait, the cart also comes stocked with...
Not to mention a smiling member of our staff to serve your guests for up to two hours and keep things topped up... and wash the dirty cups!
Our hot chocolate cart is a versatile beast too! Hire it for use as a candy cart, a dessert or cake station, or why not be a bit quirky and do something a little different like a hotdog stand! Jaimie quite fancies the idea of a cocktail cart which she will obviously want to test out first... perfect for a ‘Sex in the City’ style cocktail inspired hen night maybe?
We have tried to keep the hire cost as low as possible as we know weddings are expensive enough! So as an introductory offer we have decided to give our loyal blog followers an exclusive special offer for the first five hirers...
So how’s that then... brand new, original concept to the market and 10% off! Click on the poster above to download the PDF :)
I guess you could say it’s soon going to be Christmas and we’ve simply got into the festive spirit early!
Enjoy, and make don't forget to take a napkin to wipe away the squirty cream moustache... although a few photos of happy customers using the cart and making a mess might be the feature of our next blog!
