Rosh Hashanah - Tips for Setting a Beautiful Table

Rosh Hashanah - Tips for Setting a Beautiful Table

I love decorating my table, no matter whether I am hosting a large gathering, or keeping it small and intimate.  All it takes are 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 set the table using 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!

I covered the challah with this beautiful, embroidered, lacy pomegranate challah cover.  To add a touch of shimmer to the table, I used our star of david votives.  I love the added sparkle it provides.

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.

I wanted to play around with different tablescapes, so I changed the dishes, removed the gold foil napkins and displayed these elegant, pale pink napkins on each place setting.  I love the look of a simple napkin knot and the pale pink adds such a beautiful touch of color.

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 hope you’ve enjoyed hearing a bit about my holiday table. Please share some pictures of yours as we would love to see!  You can also shop our entire Rosh Hashanah collection or check our our Pinterest board for more inspiration & ideas. 

Wishing you a happy, healthy, and sweet New Year.
