I like this! Did you have little bowls for people to put their popcorn in?

Such a fantastic idea!  What are on the cards being held by the clothespins? And what is in that old suitcase at the far end of the table?  I just love this…cute, cute, cute!

Oh my gosh!  I haven’t seen anything like this anywhere else and I just love everything you did!  I’m definitely going to “borrow” a few of your ideas and use them…the popcorn bar, the suitcase for cards, AND the background display!  Thanks so much for sharing!

We totally are doing a popcorn bar as well!!!! I absolutley love the galvanized tubs, I may steal that idea cause I’m not in love with the plastic buckets we currently have although the sand shovels we got to use as scoops kind of match the big ol’ tubs lol.

We are ordering popcorn from several places (regular popcorn and chedder from the grocery store), some unique savory and chocolate flavors from Pop-it Popcorn. Which I highly recommend to anyone who will be doing a popcorn bar for their wedding. They gave us an awesome discount price and sent us sample of a bunch of their flavors (including new ones that weren’t listed on the website). We got awesome popcorn boxes for super cheap from Oriental Trading company and made stickers I’ve attached a picture below of our picture boxes. Once we have our wedding I’ll posted pictures of our popcorn bar as well.

was wondering what you ladies have ordered for the popcorn, how much popcorn for how many guests sort of thing…we are really liking this idea as we all love popcorn but just wondering if there is a ratio so to speak.

Recommendations for how much popcorn I’ve seen is usually 1.5 cups of popcorn per person, however, I recommend you decide what type of container you are giving people to fill then multiply that by how many people you have and throw in maybe 5 or 10 extra for good measure (cause if the popcorn is good you’ll have samplers and people might go back for more!!!!!) I also seriously would recommend popcorn palace, we just got our samples from there and OMGosh the wild blueberry popcorn is SOOOO good.
