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


Materials

  • 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)


instructions

step-1

Fill each of your jars halfway with olive oil.

step-2

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

step-3

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.

step-4

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.

step-5

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