Light-Up Party Fountain & Cups
This fountain looks nice when assembled, but you are limited in it's uses. I bought it for my wedding, and thought I'd try it out at my bridal shower. I'm glad I did! When I put my favorite punch in it, the fountain's concept (being an actual fountain) didn't work. I found out you can't put much of any carbonated beverage in it or any fruit juices with pulp in it; it won't work at all. I was disappointed, as my favorite punch is a carbonated tropical punch with orange juice (yes, with pulp) and other assorted fruit juices. It didn't work (for me) for the punch I wanted to serve. Yet when I ran water through it, it ran just perfectly.
I would recommend to the manufacturer of printing acceptable recipes in the instruction booklet; not just what can't go into the punch bowl/fountain.
If you use juices and pre-made punches that don't inhibit the flow through the fountain's tube, then the fountain works and looks very nice.
Also, it is very simple to assemble. Again, very nice.

We bought this for our daughter's wedding. It looks great! Very sturdy, so simple to assemble. The only regret we have is that we didn't get more of them. This product is definitely 5 stars!

Can't live without it now
This is so much prettier than the picture. Works well. Sturdy. Everyone gets a kick out of getting their own drink. The light is a great touch -- really eye catching.

I was disappointed with this fountain. it seems kind of cheaply made, but the worst thing is how much noise the motor makes. I'm afraid it's going to be a real distraction at our reception.

But only if you want red and yellow lights. Sadly, I do not.
The fountain itself is cute enough. Definitely not very big, but a nice size for a smaller party. Otherwise you will be filling it up often, since it holds less than a gallon of liquid. I tried it out with just water and it flowed well. Very smooth. My big problem is that the lights it comes with are red and yellow. I just assumed they'd be white bulbs. The party I purchased this for has a frozen theme, so red and yellow are very out of place. I even tried to take apart the base to change out the bulbs but to no avail. One of the screws won't come out. Maybe I will be able to use it for another function in the future, but for my intended use, it was a giant waste of money.

When i first opened the box i was like noo wheres the rest of it?! you have to assemble it. duh.
and i didnt notice the instruction booklet at first.. bigger duh.
so i had to figure it out without instructions and it was a piece of cake. i tested it with water (i plan to mix no-pulp lemonade and strawberry juice together in it for my wedding) it worked great! and not to knock the previous review, but the instructions explain exactly how to mix carbonated beverages into the fountain and to not use pulpy juices lol so just sayin..
this is beautiful and i cant wait to use it for my wedding i would like it 100x more if i could shut off the lights though but it IS a LIGHTED fountain not just a fountain.
