    Hi Marla -- The napkins are from Party City. All of the personalized paper stuff (napkin rings, signage, cupcake toppers, candy apple labels, etc) were from etsy. This shop: She is great to work with! :)

    They were a huge hit! The boxes didn't come filled (we just bought bagged popcorn) and I got them on ... you guessed it, etsy (I love etsy!).
