Not Just Popcorn: Gourmet Popcorn Bar

Uros Krstic

Gourmet Popcorn Bar |

We love the idea of DIY bars or buffets at events because guests enjoy customizing food to their liking, and this may be one of our favorite ideas for fall! Introducing the Gourmet Popcorn Bar. Something about the words gourmet popcorn just makes my mouth water. Popcorn is already fun, but when you add gourmet seasonings to the mix, things get seriously delicious.

A Gourmet Popcorn Bar is a great addition to your next event. Whether you're planning a wedding reception, outdoor movie night, birthday party, baby shower, engagement party, family reunion, fall festival - this simple idea adds that extra pop to your event. Smarty has everything you need to set one up yourself. Just remember to Scoop, Sprinkle, and Enjoy!

What you need:

  • popcorn
  • topping ingredients
  • popcorn kernels for favor bags
  • Sweet - Cinnamon Sugar: mix cinnamon with sugar
  • Salty - Garlic Parmesan: mix garlic salt with grated parmesan cheese
  • Spicy - Smoked Paprika: mix smoked paprika and cayenne pepper

Suggested Smarty Products:

Gourmet Popcorn Bar: Scoop, Sprinkle, Enjoy! | Gourmet Popcorn Bar: Scoop, Sprinkle, Enjoy! | These popcorn boxes are oh-so-charming and perfect for customizing to your specific event with ribbons, stickers, or a couple's monogram for a wedding. We're also including the printables we used here for you! For another serving idea, try our mini leaf cones. If you're entertaining a large crowd, these cones are great because they come in a pack of 100.

Thanks for popping by party favors! |

Say "Thanks for popping by!" with little favor bags of popcorn kernels for your guests to take home at the end of the night. A simple gesture your friends will love. To pop at home, just pour kernels into a brown paper bag, fold bag over twice, microwave for three minutes or until popping slows to one pop per second.
