Even though I already own a seder plate, I’ve wanted to design a new one for a while. Though beautiful, the one I have has a rainbow confetti look to it, and some years I wish I had something a bit more neutral. Wouldn’t you know, I finally found just the thing I’ve been looking for: this really gorgeous melamine marble tray at Target. But, I couldn’t stop there. I wanted to add just a touch of silver.
Next, I placed each phase on the plate approximately where each of the symbolic foods would sit. I started with the new moon at the top, but it’s really all preference. Since permanent vinyl is not food-safe, I have to recommend the bowls (I’m using prep bowls I found at the dollar store). I don’t know if you guys eat off the actual plate in your house, but it’s been known to happen in mine.
That said, permanent vinyl is hand-wash friendly, so you can use this plate for years to come. To make it dishwasher safe, you can even coat the plate in 2-3 thin layers of dishwasher safe Modge Podge. Please note that they recommend a month-long curing time for that. I didn’t believe them once and washed something that wasn’t properly cured and it came off in the dishwasher. It was gross. I have since then allowed for the proper curing time and had dishwasher success.
