Rosh Hashanah Table
Rosh Hashanah is the celebration of the New Year and it feels especially meaningful to me this year because life is heading in a more normal direction and I am looking forward to celebrating that. After over a year of missing school, missing work, missing events, and missing FUN, I am so grateful that we are slowly getting some normalcy in our lives once again, things I once took very much for granted, and so now more than ever, I am appreciating every minute of it!! So here it is, a beautiful table for our family’s Rosh Hashanah dinner.
First let’s talk Centerpiece…
First and foremost, I want to talk about the centerpiece I made; I had a lot of fun creating this beautiful floral arrangement. Rather than using my typical glass vases for my arrangement, I used a wooden rectangular box/vase, which brings in a rustic element. The key to working with a wooden base is to place a plastic lining on the inside of the box, so water doesn’t leak on to your table; or to place small vases inside the box to hold your flowers. Here I used a plastic lining.
For flowers, I chose green hydrangea because they are nice and big and take up a lot of space in the vase, and then all around I placed green trick dianthus, pink blushing bride, pink ranunculus, and yellow stawflowers for a pop of color. The finishing touch were small red apples which I used wooden kabob sticks to place throughout the arrangement (I saved a video on my IG stories if you want a visual). The apples make for the perfect Rosh Hashanah touch!
My favorite trick to making this arrangement look over-flowing was to use faux Hydrangea around the outskirts of the box and real hydrangea (in the same shade) at the top of the arrangement (so the real ones meet the eye!)! I was lucky to find faux hydrangea in the same shade of green as the real, but if you can’t match, it’s incredibly easy todo this with white hydrangea! I love mixing in faux flowers anytime I want to make my arrangements fuller (plus it’s a huge money saver!!).
While my arrangement is rustic, I wanted my place settings to be elegant for the High Holiday, so I went with gold and classic china. I used my favorite beaded gold chargers, gold rimmed china (I linked similar options for you to shop below!), gold flatware, and even some of my grandmother’s classic china pieces for serving apples and honey. To complete the look I placed one small apple on top of each guest’s plate!
Wishing everyone a happy and healthy “fresh start” and a Happy New Year!!
