I always like to come up with something different and with a bit of a personal touch which is why today’s blog is showcasing an amazing local business and giving you this super cute DIY popcorn favors.
I recently have gotten into popcorn again thanks to my parents, and I am not talking just popcorn from the grocery store that pops in a microwave. I am talking about fresh popped popcorn made with special oil and seasoning popped in a hand mixer on the stove or in my cute little popcorn popper. So to stock my popcorn family up with the good stuff I went to THE Edmonton popcorn store The Popcorn Shoppe, where I discovered some seriously fun coloured and flavoured popcorn.
Bryan Cardwell the owner of The Popcorn Shoppe was telling me that they can make any flavour and any colour of popcorn. They have done over 100 weddings and love to work with brides to create their custom combination. Just because your wedding colours are blue doesn’t mean you have to have the blueberry flavour, you can choose ANY flavour. And it tastes just like that flavour!
The Popcorn Shoppe is a hidden gem that needs to be checked out!

Create Your Own DIY Popcorn Favors!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
– Mason Jar (I used a small one)
– Ribbon In Your Colours
– Popcorn From The Popcorn Shoppe
– Grommet (optional)
– Grommet Stamper (from Michaels)
– Thank You Tag
The Popcorn I picked with blueberry flavoured because it looked pretty and I knew it would show well for my DIY Favors!
I sampled pretty well everything to make sure it was delicious and believe me it was!
I used this really cute tag that said Thank You but you could create your own with your names and wedding date. But if you don’t have the time or craftiness to create your own you can use the same one I did from The Little Canopy. They provide this printable for you to print off and it comes in 6 different colour options.
This next step as I said is optional. You can either just punch a hole and put the ribbon right through that or you can add the grommet. There are two reasons I like the grommet. 1. Because it is pretty and 2. because it makes sure the paper doesn’t break which probably will happen in transit from your home to the venue.
