Put together all your favorite popcorn flavors in a Popcorn Bar for a quick and easy party idea. It’s a fun addition to any party.
One of my favorite ways to host a party of teenagers is with a Popcorn Bar. We filled big bowls with different flavors of popcorn and added some candy for mixing into the popcorn. We set up a projector and screen in the backyard with a movie and they were set! Popcorn and a movie is a perfect combo.
How Much Popcorn Do I Need?
The amount will vary depending on what other food you are serving at the party. Plan on 2 -3 cups of popcorn per person

Of course we had to have candy to go with the popcorn. What would a movie be without popcorn and candy?!?!

And then to wash everything down there was root beer. Served out of a fun vintage Pepsi crate! I added a few white daises into the old, empty pepsi/coke bottles.
