Rustic Popcorn Bar

Hello friends! Today I am super excited to be sharing with you this rustic style popcorn bar that I styled for my daughter's seventeenth birthday party.   Can't believe she will be a senior next year!  

To celebrate her birthday, she invited some friends over to hang out and watch a movie after they had dinner at a nearby restaurant.  She decided to have dessert at the restaurant instead of having it at home, so I decided to style a popcorn bar so they could get some while watching the movie.

Lets start with the backdrop shall we?  My daughter loves the rustic-industrial look so I decided to use a big chalkboard that I have and write a simple title...  "Popcorn Bar", but it had to have that special look right!  So I asked my friend Jourdan from Texas Soul Lettering to write it for me with a "typewriter" font and I just loved how it turned out!

We choose to have 2 popcorn options, caramel and regular flavors.

 I went to my favorite popcorn shop in Austin, Lollepop Gourmet Popcorn and I got some bags for the party and of course a bag for the rest of the family, because if you are a mom--  you know how this goes when you have girls sleeping over! 

I used some galvanized buckets to complete the look she wanted and I also used some small chalkboards to write the type of popcorn that each bucket had, I asked Jourdan to help me out writing the signs.

I also grabbed the toppings while I was shopping for the  popcorn.  So convenient to buy all you need  for your popcorn bar in one place! 

For the sweet toppings, we went with Kit Kats, Gummies and M&M's.

I used some wooden boxes in several sizes to set up all the toppings, I also used some craft paper liners and we wrote  "Sweet Toppings" and "Savory Toppings" on them!

For decoration, I added some gold light bulbs (battery operated) to each side of the chalkboard.
