My speech assistant was pregnant with her third child. (I am a little late in posting this as she has had said child and is now enjoying a lovely break from school whiling away the hours taking care of three little ones under the age of four.) I wanted to give her a fun send off at school so I created the "She's About to Pop" popcorn bar.
I bought pre-popped popcorn from Gordon Food Service. I purchased various kinds of popcorn salt from my grocery store and Big Lots and then transferred them to Dollar Store salt shakers.
The banner I made by printing out flags on card stock and scrapbook paper and stringing them on Baker's twine. Here is an easy tip another teacher gave me as I was trying to get the banner to stay up. She suggested I hot glue it to the brick. It worked like a charm and it came off super easy.
The small signs were also done on card stock, printed and then cut out. Again I googled tag templates and just added my own labels. I tied them on with baker's twine as well.
I made the pinwheels from a template I got from Googling pinwheels. To get the two pattern look, I glued two different scrapbook papers together and then cut them out. I hot glued a button in the center and hot glued them to kabob skewers. I made the popcorn balls the night before.
I went with the red, black and whet theme because that was color of the enamelware that I had. (I am sure that is what the professional stylist do...right?) All in all it was really pretty simple to throw together and it came out so very cute.
