Whether you're hosting an outdoor dinner party, looking for chic favors to make for a sophisticated shower, or simply adore miniature goodies (who doesn't?!), these personal olive oils are a great DIY for almost any occasion. The best part? They only take few minutes to put together, but can last forever -- though we doubt they'll make it past the main course. Read on for this easy DIY from Fashionable Hostess below!
From Amanda... I always love dipping fresh bread into olive oil at restaurants so I loved the idea of bringing this concept home, and what better way than to provide each guest with their own bottle to enjoy alongside fresh bakery bread and a dish of sea salt.

DIY Personal Olive Oil Jars


  • Mini glass jars with swing tops; enough so each guest has their own

  • A large bottle of Olive Oil (plan to fill each jar 3/4 of the way)

  • Fresh rosemary (1 sprig per glass)

  • Sea salt (enough for each guest to be given a small dish)

  • Wooden cutting boards to display the finished product (1 for each guest)



Fill each of your jars halfway with olive oil.


Trim your rosemary stalks so they are just tall enough to fill each bottle.


Place the rosemary stalk in the half-filled bottle, then fill the remainder with just enough olive oil to that the container closes and there are no spills.


To execute this tablescape, each guest should be given their own cutting board topped with fresh bread (I like a french baguette or dinner roll), a small dish of sea salt (a sprig of extra rosemary on top looks nice!), and their own bottle on olive oil to enjoy.


Remind guests to take theirs home to enjoy once dinner is over!
