Miss Kris Kin Community You're Invited PARTY OVER HERE!!!!! I’m thrilled to finally announce a new YouTube series I’m working on in collaboration with KIN Community. Today the first episode of “You’re Invited” is LIVE! Watch it here.

This project has basically been a dream come true. I’m hosting parties and inviting the entire internet to come party! In each episode, I’ll throw together a new themed party. I’ll give you decor, food + beverage and tons of fabulous DIY inspiration. I kicked off the series by hosting a few of my friends for my favorite meal of the day… BRUNCH! Who doesn’t love a good brunch?!?

Miss Kris Kin Community You're Invited Table 1I created the perfect brunch table for my guest by using a closet door… yep! Covered it with stripped fabric I picked up from the fabric store… yep, so easy!
Created a fab garland with leaves from the yard and decorated it with fresh fruit! And topped the whole thing off with this AMAZING plantalier… get it plant + chandelier?!?

YUM!: Flavored Popcorn Recipes

Miss Kris Flavored Popcorn

Award Season is in full swing here in LA. This weekend are the Golden Globes, then we have the SAG Awards and a few other shows leading up to the main event, the Oscars! Because my invite to these award shows always seem to get lost in the mail, I’ll be watching the shows from the comfort of my couch with a big bowl of popcorn! I mean it seems only right to celebrate some of Hollywood’s most glamorous evenings with popcorn, right? For those of you hosting Award Show parties keep in mind that popcorn really is a spectacular party snack. There are so many ways to dress up popcorn and really make it a fancy and delicious treat. Below are a few of my favorite gourmet popcorn recipes:

Parmesan-Rosemary: Toss 16 cups hot popcorn with 1/2 cup grated parmesan, 3 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary and 2 teaspoons kosher salt.
Truffle: Toss 16 cups hot popcorn with 6 tablespoons melted butter, 1 1/2 tablespoons truffle oil, 1/4 cup grated parmesan, 1 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
Buttered: Melt 1 stick butter in a small saucepan over low heat, skimming off the foam and solids; drizzle over 16 cups hot popcorn and toss with 2 teaspoons kosher salt.
Three-Cheese: Toss 16 cups hot popcorn with 2 cups shredded cheddar, 1 cup grated parmesan and 1/2 cup grated pecorino; spread on baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F until the cheddar melts, 3 minutes. Season with salt.
Bacon-Chive: Cook 6 slices chopped bacon until crisp; drain on paper towels, reserving the drippings. Drizzle 2 tablespoons each reserved bacon drippings and melted butter over 16 cups hot popcorn. Toss with the bacon, 1/2 cup chopped chives and 1/2 teaspoon cayenne. Season with salt.
Cajun: Melt 4 tablespoons butter with 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning (try Tony Chachere- my fave), 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne and 2 chopped scallions; drizzle over 16 cups hot popcorn and toss. Season with salt.
Salt and Vinegar: Combine 1/4 cup malt vinegar and 2 teaspoons kosher salt in a small spray bottle; shake to dissolve the salt. Spray over 16 cups hot popcorn.
