Okay third times a charm! ( i been trying to write this post but for some reason my cat, press’ on a key and deletes it all!
Any Who! We decided on doing a DIY popcorn bar! Its a fun and easy way i think to do favors and plus, guests will create their own goody bags to take home!
Here is the picture that inspired us!
And here are our Favor bags!
Things you’ll need: scirrors,hole puncher, paperbags, permenent glue dots, design scirros, clear plastic bags, stamps to what your heart desires, ribbon or twine(to close up bag) and an ink pad!
How to: Start by cutting the paperbag to a length that suits you with you deisgn scirrors. Then stamp on whatever. Next, hold plastic bag on top of paperbag and trim the platic bag to fit into the PB. Then open the PB and place 1 glue dot on each side of bag. Next, put plastic bag into the PB. Finally, punch hole at top for guests to use ribbon or twine to tie it closed!
( the plastic bad inside protects guests from the grease due to the popcorn!)
We decided on doing three 3 types of popcorn, Regular, Butter and Kettle. And the siders are MnM’s, pretzels and nuts!
Hope this is useful! please comment!

Gadzooks! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea!!! I was considering a sweet bar, but 1, the sugar idea just doesn’t suit me, 2, it’s SO EXPENSIVE!!! Candy just costs a FORTUNE!! and 3, this is SO much more fun, in my opinion! I love the rustic, old time element, and I LOVED your use of paper bags with stamps!
PLUS I am beginning to create my own seasoning salts, as well as brewing my own vanilla extract, so I might be able to work that in somehow!!!!
This site is EXACTLY what I was looking for to get my creative juices flowing. I’m a bit pig headed, and like doing things myself, and besides, our wedding will not be the same old same old!
PS…. I completely sympathize with the cat thing. I have a big male tabby named Newcomb, and he is a pain in my hind end… he and his “sister”, Agnes, love helping me type. Agnes just lays on my laptop.

I really really love this idea! I was originially going to do a tea bar, but I think I might do this as well. Did you buy the popcorn in advance, or make it right before the ceremony? I’m having an outside wedding in Texas, so I’m concerned about it potentially going stale.
