How to Set Up A Popcorn Bar

Set up a Popcorn Bar for awards viewing parties or movie themed parties for adults and children alike. Everyone loves popcorn and there are so many variations. This popcorn bar lets guests mix and match flavors and add-ins for the perfect snack.

This party buffet is perfect for hosting the girls for an Oscars Red Carpet party. It can also be adapted for sports and game day parties. Don’t forget the kids. They would love this popcorn buffet for their movie themed birthday party.

I get so excited to watch the awards shows this time of year, and hosting a viewing party with a popcorn bar is a great way to share the experience with friends. I set up this one to share on Homes.com and I think it turned out super cute!

The idea here was to provide several flavors of popcorn, both sweet and salty, and include some “add-ins” that you can sprinkle into your popcorn box. The combination of flavors takes this popcorn bar up a notch, and you can get as creative as you want.

A few decorative styling details like movie reel, clapboard, and directors megaphone make this snack bar perfect for any movie themed party. All these items can be found online or at your local party store.
