One week and counting until 5783! I’m beginning to feel a lot more prepared for the New Year than I was last week. Which is a good thing because I’m also going to a friend’s wedding this weekend. I’ve got a lot going on right now!
But before I get carried away with planning (and packing!), I wanted to share my tablescape for this year. The theme (if you will) is still mostly red and gold, but I added some moody fall flowers to the mix to give it a bit of panache. Now, as you can see, it’s not like gothic moody. Just enough reds and purples to give it a good fall feel.
I started by laying out this beautiful sparkly, red tablecloth that I found on sale this summer. Then, I rolled up some red cloth napkins and added my printable Shana Tova napkin rings (get your free set here!). That’s where the moody florals came in.
Next, I found a big fall floral bouquet at Target that matched the napkin rings. What luck! I think it was meant to be. I split the bouquet into 2 smaller arrangements placed in bowls. I love low arrangements because they add a lot of color without all the height (meaning, we can all see each other).
Well, at this point, I was feeling like I needed something to break up all the color, so I added a white runner with red and gold stripes. Much better! Then, to bring together the arrangements/fill in the empty space, I added in some candlesticks, gold votives, and pomegranates. Yes, they’re fake pomegranates, but they’re cheaper than real ones! And I can use them year after year. Finally, I set the table with my gold and white plates and my grandma’s gold flatware.
How do you like to set your table for Rosh Hashanah? Do you have favorite colors or tableware that you save for the holiday? I’d love to her all about it in the comments below! And from my family to yours: Shana tova u’metuka! We wish you a sweet New Year full of blessings and adventures.
