I am a girl who will confess many things, as you will find out the more you visit.
Today’s confession is that I am utterly, unabashedly, completely addicted to popcorn. I grew up eating it every night after a well-balanced dinner during TV time with my family. Sadly, many nights I sat solo at the dining room table glaring at my cold carrots in the dark watching the rest of my family nosh on their popcorn happily.
Clearly, I have an emotional tie to the crunchy stuff so when Phoenix Bride and Groom Magazine celebrated 10 fabulous years last summer and included a popcorn table, I was smitten. It was a bit embarrasing how I hovered, claiming to be helping keep the table stocked up. This popcorn was special and needed tending to.
The evening’s theme was a Sophisticated Circus and popcorn was a natural choice. As Victoria Canada of Victoria Canada Weddings and Events explains,
“To me, the circus is fun and a celebration so that fit the 10th Anniversary occasion but also, the wedding industry can be a bit of a circus…we all juggle many balls!”
Also, this wedding planner with more than 10 years experience likes to mix things up. I think she’s actually allergic to doing something the same way twice (unless it’s good planning practices!) so instead of a traditional Candy Bar/Buffet, which is very popular and with good reason, she added her own twist and presented a Popcorn Bar.
We had a ball at the Circus, I mean, 10th Anniversary Party. Thanks to those who lent us their creative genius to make it so special!
