A poppin' popcorn party! - GDP051

Welcome everyone! In July I hosted a Stampin' Up! bingo party for my customers. I had so much fun with the decor and goodies! My customers game for an evening to play good old fashioned bingo and enjoy some treats.

One of the most important details to my popcorn party is the Ready to Pop Stamp Set. This stamp set has a coordinating Thinlit die and can be purchased as a bundle to save 10%. The thinlit makes the cutest popcorn boxes. I was working on a budget so, sadly, I only purchased the stamp set. (Proof that demonstrators do not own everything in the catalogue).

These Stampin' Up! Kraft Gift Bags are 4-3/4" x 6-1/2" and were perfect to serve my popcorn treats. I kept the bag tags simple by using 2" strip of Whisper White Cardstock punched at each end with the Banner Triple Punch.

My party favors for the guests were these Clear Tiny Treat Boxes filled with popcorn seeds (complete with stove top popping instructions).

When I grew up my Mom always made popcorn on the stove top. You poor your popcorn seeds into a large stove top pot (enough to cover just the bottom with a single layer of seeds). Add a little vegetable oil in the bottom of the pan, enough to cover the seeds. Cover the pot with a lid and turn your heat to high. When the seeds start to pop, gently shake the pot over the element back and forth until the popping starts to subside. Remove from the heat and poor into a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt and enjoy!

In Canada we call "soda" pop. When I thought of these belly bands for these pop cans I was giddy! I mean, come on!! The cuteness!

So what is Stampin' Bingo?? 

Each of my customers in attendance received a Stampin' Up! product swag bag valued at $25. I had 12 guests register and we played 12 games of Bingo. Each game winner received a Stampin' Up! product as a prize. We took a break half way through our Bingo night and created two make and take projects. There was a lot of excitement and everyone went home with a bag full of products and make and takes!

The swag bag bag for this event included:
Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper, Kraft Tag a Bag Gift Bags, 
Gold Binder Clips, Thick Bakers Twine

The Bingo Game Prize's.

Blogging this party has been on my to do list for a couple of weeks. The Global Design Project challenge PGD051 this week is "food". A perfect reason to get it posted!

You are invited to take the challenge all week long. You do not need to create a complete party spread to play along. Stamp a card (or anything at all) and share with us! #GDP051.

I will be having a Winter Bingo event on September 27, 2016 at 7:00pm. The swag bag and prizes will feature new exciting items from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue (launching September 1, 2016). Registration is $45 per guest. Contact me to reserve your spot! Space is limited to 12 guests. 

Thank-you for visiting. Have a creative week!
