Valentine’s Day Fondue Party + Recipe

Valentine’s Day Fondue Party + Recipe

This year, we decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a romantic fondue feast… my favorite way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, in fact!

My plan for the dinner party was to incorporate a rich color scheme that would pair nicely with the rich color and flavor of the Dark Chocolate Raspberry Fondue. I began by decorating the dining table with shades of deep reds and hot pinks for a romantic vibe. A dramatic floral bouquet full of red roses, hot pink carnations, and white buds of the Japanese Meadowsweet served as the main focal point of the table, around which all other party elements were carefully selected: a hot pink table runner and dinner napkins, red wine, colorful berries, and dark chocolates add the finishing touches to this
Valentine’s Day Dinner Party.

Red dinner napkins were folded to look like rose buds and placed in glass stemware.

Once dinner was finished, the table was decorated with fondue forks for each couple and plenty of decadent treats to go around.

I purchased a variety of delicious fruits and desserts to dip in the rich Chocolate Raspberry Fondue, such as brownies, raspberry cheesecake, marshmallows, pineapples, strawberries, and bananas, to name a few.
