An Idea For the Party Planner: D.I.Y Winter Wonderland Popcorn Bar
A do-it-yourself themed popcorn bar is the perfect way to “wow” your guests this holiday season. Whether you’re hosting a holiday bash or a small gathering with friends, everyone will be blown away by how fun and creative a popcorn bar can be. The best part is that it’s great for all ages (including the kiddos!).

Winter Wonderland Popcorn Bar Instructions
– Find your space and plan your theme
– Select what you’ll want to serve the popcorn in and how you’ll serve it

– Set up your table, sit back, relax and watch your guests enjoy all your delicious work!
