In my last post I talked about popcorn and candy themed parties. After writing the post I ended up creating an invitation for a popcorn themed party for my daughter. The invitation was based on the graphics from our retro popcorn containers and today I thought that I'd share it with you as free download.
We purchased a popcorn maker last Christmas and my youngest daughter just loves to make popcorn with her friends. Serving the popcorn in our retro looking cinema style popcorn boxes and bags is going to take watching home movies to a whole new level at our home.
I am going to make a smaller version of the black board pictured above so that I can write what movie is playing when my daughter has her friends over. We sell Martha Stewart's blackboard paint at most of our Creative Bag stores and that is what I use to turn assorted sizes of plain canvas panels into blackboards. My tip for painting with blackboard paint - use a sponge brush and keep in mind you will need to apply 2 or 3 thin coats of paint for the best results. I like to use a long table with a burlap table runner as a food serving station.
Our new poly market trays are ideal for organizing food. Here you can see how easy it is to display different flavors of popcorn in popcorn bags. I used small blackboard clips to sign each of the trays.
There are a number of different sizes and shapes of boxes and buckets for popcorn ... all of them look like authentic cinema style popcorn boxes. Pick just one style or use a selection of different ones and let everyone pick their own container.
If you are planning on giving out party favors, our popcorn boxes make a unique favor container. I tied red twine around this smaller box and used a small clothespin to attach a popcorn themed tag. I haven't tried it yet but I have a feeling that a dvd will fit on an angle inside the larger popcorn box ... that would be a great packaging idea for a housewarming or hostess gift.
We only sell our glassware in our stores. You can view most of our glassware selection on our website. These milk glass bottles are one of my favorites right now. I don't think I will ever get tired of paper straws ... they make every glass look "special" and with so many colour choices it's easy to tie these into any party colour theme.
Thinking about serving more than just popcorn? We have lots of different food packaging supplies. Whether you are planning a movie night with a few friends or a large gathering for hundreds of people ... we've got everything you need to make your event extra "yummy" special.
