Hollywood’s biggest night is almost upon us. The glitz, the glamour, the dresses – I’m talking about the Oscars of course! Having an Academy Awards party is a must for dishing on all the Red Carpet fashion, and in the spirit of the movies, I’ve created a popcorn bar that’s perfect for any viewing party!
To create a popcorn bar with POP (I couldn’t help myself!) I used gourmet popcorn in crazy delicious flavors from Tastebuds Popcorn. Tastebuds is locally made in the Carolinas and boasts approximately 90 artisan-made flavors! From Maple Bacon to Red Velvet to Lindor Truffle (all made with the actual ingredients BTW), this popcorn is soooo much better than microwave popcorn, trust me.
Party City has a great assortment of awards show party gear and I took full advantage for this popcorn bar. I created a simple black backdrop with a piece of black foam board and Party City cardboard stars. I filled different size glass containers with colorful popcorn and adorned each container with a black ribbon.
To label the popcorn types, I used the stars from Party City and glued them to wooden sticks.
So let’s talk popcorn types, shall we? As I mentioned, Tastebuds has about 90 types of popcorn available but here’s a few I chose for my popcorn bar. There’s Love Potion #9 (featuring a young Sandy Bullock) ….
…Champagne and Strawberries…
…Loaded Baked Potato…
and of course, Movie Theater Butter.
But seriously, these were just a few of Tastebuds‘ delicious options. They’ve got salty, sweet, chocolate, you name a flavor and they have it – including holiday flavors (ahem, pumpkin!). The best part is, they ship anywhere and everywhere and if you happen to be in the Charlotte/Belmont/Mooresville area, you can go in and sample flavors before you buy them!
Celebrating Hollywood’s biggest night is a no-brainer with a delicious (and if I say so myself) adorbs popcorn bar! And the Oscar goes to….
