The Popcorn Bar

One of my favorite elements of our wedding so far is definitely our popcorn bar.  Vince and I are HUGE popcorn eaters, and I love the idea of having different flavors for our guests to chose from.  
I love the apothecary jars and have found a few at Hobby Lobby for 5-15$-which is a great deal!
I also like these vases and think they are more practical for reaching your hand in and scooping out the popcorn...
This one is cute, but too informal.  I do like the jars though. 
I have contacted Julie who owns etsy shop Bohtique she made our return address labels for our save the dates, and I love working with her. 
I want to put labels on each bag that the guests will fill with popcorn.  I really wanted it to say something cute about sweet and salty and love, but I haven't been able to think of anything yet.  Any ideas??

I googled it and found this: "Life is salty, love is sweet."

I think it's kinda cute!

i love it! you do need cuter labels tho... but it sounds like you have that all worked out! so fun. popcorn is always delicious after a night of partying! and you might need cute labels for your popcorn bags too!

maybe you can find nice paper vintagey popcorn bags that you can print on? or just make a label that you affix. so fun!

and, okay see here i go... you could make or buy some deliciously flavored sea salts, like cinnamon chipotle, to really shake things up.

i'm excited, can you tell?

What an adorable idea!! I would have never thought of this but think it is so fun and different.

I love your bridesmaids dresses too! Again, I would have never picked them but they are awesome!

OK: I love this idea. Popcorn is my vice [everyone that knows me bugs me about it]. I'm a huge fan of your idea.

[And I really like the "Life is salty; Love is sweet" comment. Adorable.]

I wonder where you could find vintage paper bags?
