Weeknight Party Girl :: Cinnamon Roll Popcorn Bars


One of the hidden bonuses of working with Pop Secret popcorn is that they sent boxes and boxes of popcorn to make sure I had enough for the Oscar Party Photo shoot.  We used tons of the popcorn for the shoot and we still ended up with tons left over.  What to do, what to do?

I made popcorn bars.  But these aren't just any popcorn bars because I used Pop Secret's Cinnamon Roll Popcorn in the bars.  Epic.

Oscar Parties aren't as hard as you think! {with Pop Secret}


Last month my girlfriend and I were out to a boozy lunch and we decided to host an Oscar Party - we've even figured out how to project the show on a big screen in the Fire Station!  

But what to serve...


Nothing goes better with movies than popcorn - and I love popcorn.  I worked with Pop Secret to plan a fabulous popcorn bar with delicious flavors and dreamy mix-ins.  I literally can't think of a better way to watch the Oscars and hang out with the girls.  Except for the cocktail - that's coming later this week!



The fun part about a popcorn bar is popping up a few flavors of popcorn {I popped Double Butter and Cinnamon Roll} and filling bowls with loads of your favorite candies, nuts, etc.  We even tried a few savory things and they were delicious.




How are you celebrating the Oscars?

A Football-tastic Party


Last night the Oregon Ducks competed for the National Football title, this weekend the Seahawks hope to defend their Super Bowl trophy - even if you aren't into football, this is a good excuse for a party.  And food.  And great if you live in the Northwest because I literally don't know anyone who isn't watching football right now.

Charm Hour :: Tequila Shots


Anyone who says it takes a lot to make a party fun has never had tequila shots.  Line up a tray and watch the fun begin.  The only catch is that you MUST MUST MUST have good tequila.  Bad tequila = a headache which  is not a good time.
