I always joke that my only vice is salt. I rarely drink, I definitely don’t smoke, but extra salt on anything and everything? Guilty as charged. Though there’s absolutely nothing wrong with good ol’ table salt, I have to admit that on the right dish, a dash of rosemary sea salt goes a VERY long way. I recently filled these adorable little dollar store jars with homemade* sea salt, tied on a wee canvas tag and used them as place settings at a dinner party (which you can see right here!) Not only did they add a little somethin’ somethin’ to my table, but my guests got to take them home when they left. A place card AND favor DIY in one? That’s something I think we can all agree upon. With photos from my darling Heidi Lau, read on for the steps!
*I admitedly use the term homemade lightly. I’m not sure if tossing two things together consists of homemade status, but let’s run with it
:: 1 cup coarse sea salt
:: 3 Tbsp. rosemary leaves
:: Small clear glass jars (I picked mine up at the dollar store!)
:: Thin ribbon or twine
:: Canvas tags (I picked mine up at Michael’s!)
:: Graphite pencil or paint pen
In a bowl, mix together your sea salt and rosemary leaves.
Fill each jar with your rosemary sea salt mixture.
In your prettiest penmanship, write the name of each guest on the canvas tag (if you’re using a graphite pencil, just be careful not to smudge it).
Tie the tag to the jar and place at each setting!
