Cinnamon Apple Popcorn and Apple Sangria Recipes November 8, 2012

A few weeks back, I posted photos from Ella’s Sweet as Apple Pie birthday party. This theme was so adorable and I love how her mom, Courtney, put everything together. Talk about attention to detail. If you have not seen the photos, check them out in this post here.

Today, I wanted to share with you the a couple recipes that Courtney used… for the Cinnamon Apple Popcorn and the Apple Sangria. I love how Courtney served the apple popcorn in cones and decorated these with the cupcake toppers. She simply punched the cupcake toppers using a 2 inch circle punch. And of course, the red bucket fits the theme perfectly.
