Welcome back to our Ultimate Southern Mason Jar finalist series!

All I have to say about this next entry is, who knew barbecue could be so cute?! Stylist Carlee Sizemore and photographer Leslie Kerrigan did such a great job with this cheery set-up. Read on for all of the details behind their barbeque bar concept!

From Carlee + Leslie:

“We loved the idea of setting up a Southern BBQ Bar and serving the ‘que in individual Mason jars. Whether you use the traditional pulled pork BBQ, chicken or beef brisket (we love Texas style BBQ, too!), we think guests will love being able to dress their barbeque with their choice of sauce. Including favorites such as Eastern North Carolina Vinegar based, Carolina Gold, Alabama White and plain ol’ barbeque sauce in various sized jars gives a nice, colorful look to the BBQ table (and who knows? maybe they’ll find their new favorite ‘que style). Throw some silverware in a jar wrapped in jute and you’re all set! I love the flexibility that a BBQ bar brings: it’s perfect for a catered rehearsal dinner or a backyard reception.”

Thank you so much, ladies! Readers, if you love this concept, be sure to let us know in the comments! And remember, you’re welcome to vote for more than one finalist!

    A really cute idea! Not only great for a southern wedding reception/rehearsal party but a great idea for a backyard party. I love the sterling or heavy plate flatware with the more casual theme. But I would not have enough sterling for a crowd and I would be counting it all night to make sure that someone did not put a piece in the trash or their pocket! It looks super though!

    This is a great idea! We do something similar with Indian food (start with the basics and add your own toppings), but here in Virginia, this BBQ would be a huge hit at any party!

Howdy, ladies! We have a really fun week coming up, where we’ll be unveiling the top ten finalists in our first Ultimate Southern Challenge. A few weeks back we asked y’all to submit your best ideas for the most Southern and inspiring escort card design, and we were blown away by the submissions! We’ve decided to post the top ten this week, and the winner (who gets Southern Weddings bragging rights!) will be determined by reader popularity (i.e. the number of comments on their post) and the opinion of the SW editors. So let’s get cracking!

First up is photographer and all around crafty gal Emily Steffen, who submitted adorable homemade barbecue sauce and spice rub escort cards!

From Emily:

I imagined a backyard wedding with the couples’ favorite food and desserts to share! So, why not use their favorite BBQ sauce and rub to double as a gift and escort card for the guests?

Materials: vintage milk jars, corks (JoAnn Fabrics), small baggies for spice rub (JoAnn Fabrics), paper for printed tags, twine or ribbon of choice, barbecue sauce (family recipe), spiced seasoning rub (family recipe)


Thank you so much, Emily! Your escort card idea sounds absolutely delicious. Readers, if you love Emily’s idea, please chime in in the comments! This isn’t really voting, per say, so you’re welcome to comment on more than one finalist.

We’ll be back with our next ideas soon!

      Kirby {Colors of Honey}: I love this idea. We are actually doing this for our wedding. My fiancé makes his own BBQ sauce that he calls Laurens Sauce. Does anyone know where to get jars that we could use for this?

    So cute! And I love that it functions as both an escort card and delicious favor :)
