Host Passover Seder

On Monday starts Passover so this week I have been working on my tablescape to host guests for the second night. I am always drawn to hues of blue for the Jewish Holidays and these Deborah Rhodes scalloped placemats contrasted to a classic white tablecloth felt like a perfect match for the holiday.

Since I am so busy this upcoming weekend, I knew that coordinating flowers for the table would be difficult so I chose beautiful crystal candlesticks instead. I am so in love with these from Frontgate, but since they are sold out, I found a similar option here. The crystal really makes the display romantic.

On either side of the candlesticks I placed plates full of matzah accompanied by sides of harroset and horseradish, and two seder plates. I actually bought these clear plastic seder plates on Amazon because the ones I own totally clashed. The best part is at $7.99, you can toss them right after! For those of you who want everyone to have their own seder plate, these are a great option (but be aware the are slightly larger than a dinner plate!). Also for those of you searching for a small bowl set to serve sides alongside your matzah, I love this Juliska set.

A closer look at some details on my table… as I mentioned I chose Deborah Rhodes placemats and matching Deborah Rhodes reversible linen napkins which I pulled through Z Gallerie Geode Napkin Rings, Then I chose my Olivia & Oliver Bone China dishes with an elegant gold rim and Juliska Berry & Thread two tone flatware because the gold ties back to the plates. Then for glassware I chose my Villeroy & Boch Bernadotte Goblets for water and Saint Louis Crystal Goblets for wine. Lastly, I have the most important item, the tablecloth… this Holiday tends to get messy with all the dipping of the wine {and drinking} so I love using my Mode Living tablecloths because they are wine resistant! That’s right, their linens have a special easycare finishing that prevents wine and other liquids from staining {but they look and feel soft!!}. I chose the Mode Living Berlin Tablecloth.

While I always dread the no bread portion aspect of Passover, I do love to treat guests to a Kosher for Passover marble cake {I swear this one is good!} and there couldn’t be a prettier way to display the cake than on a Juliska cake stand. {Buy the stand on its own or the stand with the matching dome on the Juliska website!}. If you are looking to make another sweet treat for your Passover table {or need something to bring to your Passover Host}, be sure to check out my recipe for Passover Apple Kugel.
