Tips for Setting Your Rosh Hashanah Table

Tips for Setting Your Rosh Hashanah Table

I love decorating my table, no matter whether I am hosting a large gathering, or keeping it small and intimate.  All it takes is some subtle touches to make it look warm and inviting.  With this in mind I played around with different ideas for Rosh Hashanah and I am so excited to share them with you!

For my first table display, I added a linen runner, white dishes and some pretty pale pink napkins which I displayed on each place setting.  I covered the challah with this beautiful, embroidered, lacy pomegranate challah cover

To help set the mood, I used these bright star votive candle holders in the rose palette.  They come as a set of 6 in a beautiful mercury glass.  I think they add just the right amount of subtle elegance to the table.

Flowers always add such beauty!  To accent the table, I gathered small garden bouquets in a palette of pink and white.  I added some simple antique gold candle holders, gold silverware (wanted the look, but didn't have so this set is disposable), and finished off table with red apples (you can also accent with pomegranates).

I wanted to play around with different versions, so next I set the table with the Shana Tova ivory dinner napkins.  Each napkin greets guests with a sweet message, ‘Shana Tova, A Sweet New Year’ in a shiny gold foil.  The napkins are 3 ply so while disposable, they are extremely durable and will hold up even after the ‘holiday spills’.  The best part is they make for an easy clean up!  I placed the dinner napkins under the salad plate while the cocktail napkins can be used later for dessert.

On each plate I placed these apple foil place cards which can also be used for any fall gathering.  It ensures that I can sit close to the kitchen, and the the kids can sit together, which they always enjoy!

A kiddush cup is essential, and I decided to use this gold tone kiddush cup.  I love that it is simple, elegant and affordable.

A charcuterie board always makes a beautiful presentation and adds to any tablescape.  I created a Rosh Hashanah apple, honey & cheese board using this small apple dish, sliced apples, assorted crackers, cheese and pomegranate seeds.
