Google+ How To: Biscuit Bar - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

A biscuit bar — It’s like a Southern dream! After seeing Megan + Steven’s yummy setup, we couldn’t help but be jealous of all their lucky guests who had the chance to nibble at the buttery treats. We wish we could set up a biscuit bar in the office, but instead, we’ll leave it to you to recreate the look.

A. Swell Towels from House 8810 would look so sweet and colorful lining a bread basket with biscuits overflowing.

B. What would a biscuit be without a little something to go on top? Organic Elderberry-Infused Honey from Cupboard Cook would be delicious.

C. If you’re the adventurous type, go straight for the flavored jams from That’s My Jam. We’re intrigued by their flavors ranging from sweet to savory.

D. Mix up the toppings with some flavored butters like Maple Pumpkin Butter from Stonewall Kitchen.

E. A deep bread basket means lots of biscuits! Line it with a towels and you’ve got an perfectly Southern serving dish or fill it with treat bags for guests to fill.

F. Megan + Steven chose to display their biscuits on a cupcake stand. You might also consider piling them high on a cake stand, like this scalloped one from Williams-Sonoma.

G. Having a biscuit bar means having choices! Fill up a dish with this Blueberry Jam from Loulou’s Garden, or serve it straight from the jar!

H. Pay homage to the hard workers who flavored your biscuits and keep the flaky goodness inside treat bagswith Bee and Hive Stickers from Seasonal Delights.

I. Let your guests know what their options are–spell it out with these chalkboard signs from TLGCrafts.

J. You’ll probably want to lick the honey off your fingers anyway, but don’t forget about a honey dipper! This one is from CyberCucina.

K. Your guests might be dying to take home a warm biscuit. We love the handmade bags Megan + Steven provided, but check out these favor bags if you’re looking for more options.

L. Tie some ceramic tags to your favor bags so guests don’t forget the goodies inside! We like these from Paper Boat Press.

M. Jams and jellies get messy, so have some of these “Spread the Love” spreaders nearby.

N. You can never be short on honey! Check out these varietals from Bee Raw.

O. Fill up these berry baskets and put them around the biscuit bar. Some fresh fruit will go along nicely with biscuits.

P. If you’re up for it, make the biscuits yourself with Cheddar Herb Biscuit Mix from Stonewall Kitchen.

Q. For more fun flavors, jams from Stonewall Kitchen’s collection sound delicious!

R. Throw in a little kick with Foster’s Market Seven Pepper Jelly.

    One good advice with this that I can give is to look for little antique spoons for your jellies! We collected several and found vintage dainty dishes for our jelly. So pretty!

    My fiance would go crazy if we had a biscuit bar! I think he’d have more biscuits than cake! What a wonderful idea, it adds such a personal touch, and there are so many ways to customize it! My hometown has a Hot Pepper Jelly company that would be such fun to use!

    oh my goodness. i cannot wait until y’all see my ad. :) I did a biscuit bar with my photographer this past week FOR my ad on SW!!! hahahah! Since I am a “green wedding designer” – I used all organic ingredients in the biscuits, all the jams and marmalades are from fuits harvested in Florida and the canners are local to South Florida. and the decor for the shoot was a repurposed door, vintage and passed down linens, and an antique desk and shelf that are to die for! I cannot wait for all the editing to be done! :)

    I’ve been hoping and praying for a biscuit bar at my wedding! Do you think Sunrise Biscuits in Chapel Hill would provide a large order the morning of??

    • avatar Emily reply

      Hi Lauren Frances! I definitely think Sunrise or Bojangles would do a large order! If I’m not mistaken, they both take catering orders, so it shouldn’t be too out of the ordinary! Just give them a call or stop by. Good luck! Biscuit bars are the best :)
