Backyard Movie: Concessions

No movie is complete without the requisite snacks and treats. Perhaps you enjoy Reese’s Pieces. Maybe your a fan of Raisinets. What about Milk Duds, Junior Mints, Jujyfruits or Snowcaps? Me, I’m a Red Vines gal.

Regardless your candy pleasure, nothing tops the salty wonder of popcorn.

I love the idea of putting a twist on the popular candy buffet and setting up a gourmet popcorn bar. Check out some of these fantastic display ideas:

I love these jars – I have them at home and they work great for this type of thing. Although, while perusing at Ikea I saw this jar, as well as this one that would work well too.

I think these spice jars would work well for popcorn flavoring. Speaking of flavoring there are so many easy options.

  • Butter powder
  • Cinnamon sugar
  • Curry Powder
  • Hot chili flakes
  • Rosemary salt
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Ranch dressing mix

There also great mix-ins:

  • Chocolate chips
  • Coconut
  • M&M’s
  • Goldfish crackers
  • Pretzel rods

Finally, a few of my favorite popcorn recipes (yes, we’ve tried them all) are available here, here, here and here.

    For the most element, you are bound by the enntnormevial area that you imagined to develop in. If you have the room, you can increase flowers in a eco-friendly property, or a hothouse but can also develop blossoms on your rest room window sill. Genuinely, refreshing blossoms can be increased calendar year round just about everywhere but exterior in your individual lawn place is finest and most fulfilling. What you do need is a excellent patch of filth that has not been used as a building waste zone in which soil conditions are very bad. Begin by using a sample of your earth to the grounds heart or academic outreach centre for examination and increase amendments as required. From a various visual element, just go to the lawn centre and stock up on organic fertiliser and develop the flowers from this medium.
