    Sweet cart/buffet Ideas and if possible a flash

    Our evening buffet is not going to feature dessert so I thought a chocolate fountain or Sweetie cart would be ideal for folks with a sweet tooth. I have a friend who has a proper catering size chocolate fountain but it requires self set up/clearing up. I can just see myself drunk and covered  in chocolate  trying to clear up! So that is a no go.

    The sweetie carts look cute but £160++ as a package or just £75 to rent the cart seems like an expense I could use elsewhere in the budget. Besides I have checked and most of the stuff on the cart is available in Costco and I could get it dirt cheap.

    What sort of alternatives did those who wanted the sweet cart/buffet did without paying loads of money?

    Did you build your own cart, find something that worked as one or perhaps just set it up to look nice?

    I would appreciate feedback and flashes of what you have or thinking of doing.

    Thanks

    Seeing as I don't even have a date yet, I think MG should get first dibs.

    We bought all our bowls from Ebay and charity shops then went to Marko for the sweets and Ebay for the sweetie trees - All in all came in about £70 in all.

     

    Excuse the pint - friend put his down then took a photo! Nini - and he supposed to be a professional.
