4th of July Jars

We had an early 4th of July party on Friday. It was more of a dinner than a simple cook out. (Work related thing) I wanted to make things that would NOT require me to be in the kitchen all day and during the party. I made appetizers, marinated two beef tenderloins to put on the grill and decided to set up a potato bar and deserts. I wanted to have cute jars for the toppings. Something for the 4th.

I  needed jars that I could put labels on and wide enough to get the goodies out. I found these jars at the Dollar Tree and thought they would work great.

I also found this 4th of July garland at the Dollar Tree - don't you just love the Dollar Tree! I cut pieces to wrap around the base of each jar.   
The garland looked great but I wanted some labels so everyone would know what it contained, especially between the sour cream and the butter.

I didn't have time to make my own labels and these were at Hobby Lobby and with a coupon- half price. You can't go wrong there.
I filled them with cheese, sour cream, butter, bacon and chives. Then I wrote on the labels. They worked perfectly and were festive as well. Total cost for the 5 jars - $7 dollars.

Since the labels can easily be reused, I removed them and now I can reuse the jars. I think some candles in them for the fourth would be nice. I can even remove the garland and decorate them for other holidays.
