Christmas morning is where is all starts. The anticipation is over, and the celebrations begin. You’ve done your planning, the final touches are complete, and you wake up with your family to enjoy the day.
Family occasions are made so memorable by the little details. No matter what your celebration, these ideas make great adornments/ideas for any family or friend get together.
Lately, we’ve been really enjoying the pottle and jar ideas popping up in shops and cafes. There’s something particularly appealing about the individuality of these little jars of goodness, looking so decadent and enticing.
We’ve created a few simple tips for creating your own delicious jars for Christmas. The beauty of these is that they are simply fun, there is no right or wrong, and regardless of how they end up looking, they are guaranteed to taste amazing!
Little jars are great for sweet or savoury, morning or evening. Experiment with different combinations to find your favourite.
Breakfast. No matter where you are in the world, in the sunshine or the snow, it can be a long wait for sustenance while the kids tear open their presents. Starting Christmas day with fresh OJ, bottomless coffee and a few special yogurt pots prepared the evening before is a great way to keep everyone going in those early hours.
Snacks. Christmas is a time for enjoying the company of family and friends. And eating together is just one part of sharing with them. It’s a day when most of us decide to enjoy what we like, so gorgeous yogurt jars that are healthy as well are a great way to keep everyone full and feeling good.
Dessert. If there is one time you can treat yourself, it’s at Christmas. Create sweet little yogurt jars for everyone to enjoy at the end of the day – and if you’re extra keen you could even create some especially for the kids. Check out our decorating ideas below.
Don’t you just love it when you see those colourful pots of goodness in the cafés around town? Making them look so good is all down to colour, layering and texture. The options are endless, so here are a few ideas to get you started.
Now that you have your yogurt jar filling ideas sorted, it’s time to start pulling them together. The beauty of using jars for your fillings is the reuse of all those items that would otherwise end up in the recycling bin. Don’t worry if they don’t match, it’s all part of the charm.
Aside from creating beautiful food, using jars in this way is great for reusing and recycling. Now that you’ve got your jar collection, they’re also perfect for breakfast on the go year-round.
With everything now in the jar, the finishing touches complete the look. The opportunities are endless, with just a little imagination.
Platters are always a hit at any event, and a pottle platter allows people to have fun inventing their own favourite creation. Decorate the jars, provide the toppings and leave the rest up to your guests.
Go on… get thinking, and have fun. We’d love to see your results if you’d like to share your photos.
* Like other glassware for food serving use, ensure jars are suitable and clean before use. Only use the plastic jars supplied with the maker for yogurt making.Back to Blog
