It’s sure to make your reception POP

Forget a Candy Station and get a Popcorn Station. If you’re looking for a fun and different approach to your wedding menu or even your wedding favors, this is it! Utilize varieties of popcorn and/or toppings in place of traditional appetizers during your cocktail hour OR provide baggies for your guests to scoop up and take with them for the ride home.

In place of the traditional appetizers, you may want to offer a Popcorn Bar and let your guests dress them up to their taste buds with some of these scrumptious topping ideas: cinnamon sugar, grated parmesan cheese, brown sugar & chili powder, popcorn salt, basil oil, garlic oil, chili oil, popcorn butter, chopped bacon, candies etc… It’s fun and interactive for your guests and will leave them talking for weeks.

If you like the idea of providing popcorn as your favor, you can set up traditional base flavors in apothecary jars such as cheese, movie-theater, and caramel with assorted toppings and candies

What about a Spiked Popcorn Bar for adults?…With flavors like rum caramel and tequila lime.

Your popcorn buffet, station or bar is sure to be a hit and you have so many options to make it your own creation! Of course, we have tons of pictures to help inspire you 🙂
