How To Set Up a DIY Popcorn Bar

One of my favorite nights of the year is Oscar Night! We always watch with my brother, who is a huge fan of film. He watches for the movies; I watch for the dresses. 

I start out with watching the red carpet, follow it up by watching the after parties, and then catch up on every piece of fashion I might have missed on E! the next day. It’s such a fun and glamourous night.  Entertaining for the big event can be fun and glamourous too, but doesn’t have to be difficult!

This easy Awards Night Popcorn Bar can be set up in minutes and will be tasty for adults and kids.  Made simple with delicious three-flavored popcorn from The Popcorn Factory, guests can choose from a variety of sweet and savory toppings such as DIY Popcorn Salts, M&Ms, caramel bits, peanut butter chips, bacon bits, parmesan cheese and more. But that’s just getting started; the possibilities are endless!


  • 3-flavor popcorn tin (caramel, cheddar and butter)
  • Sweet toppings, such as peanut butter chips, chocolate chips, M&Ms, caramel bits, etc.
  • Savory toppings, such as bacon bits, parmesean cheese, red pepper flakes, truffle oil, etc.
  • DIY Popcorn Salts
  • Small bags for guests to put together their favorite combination

Start by setting out mini paper bags for guests to fill. Display your popcorn tin, then arrange all of your toppings in mini glass bowls and ramekins.

For an extra touch, create mini labels to display with your toppings so guests know what they are diving into.

Let guests enjoy their own unique popcorn creation!
