Rosh Hashanah, head of the year or Jewish New Year is observed for two days. A series of allusive symbols to the festival that foretold a sweet, full, prosperous and full of blessings year unfolds. We want to offer some tips on how decorate the table so that highlights and make it functional when blessings the foods that make up the tradition of the holiday.
1- Red is a color that can highlight the night of Rosh Hashanah. Apples and pomegranates can inspire ornamental and decorative motifs in floral arrangements as well as the food. Splashes of color that enliven good fortune and the desire for a happy year.
2- To do the traditional apple bathing that lead us as a way to live a sweet year, honey can be placed in small containers, like the ones used for soy sauce in sushi, one for each guest, and leave next to each dish overnight. Place another tray next to each container with slices of apple (bathed with lemon juice so they do not rust), or a whole apple for every guest, to eat or as natural decoration.
3- To set the table is work of art. As the table is the star of the night, the setting will make it show greater attention to the religious ritual. So the suggestion is choose a wonderful tablecloth that stand out. If the budget is limited and can not buy a quality and pricy one, you can use a simple one that measure up to, thanks to the combination of decorative details and colors of the food, from centerpieces to small details that will mark the house flair, like small flowers, bows for napkins, fruits, candles… The same rule applies to the crockery, glassware and cutlery. All together should generate a color harmony.
4- Centerpieces should never be very high, since it is important that diners can see one at each other across the table.
5- Fresh flowers always bring elegance, delicacy and color to the centerpieces
This year, Rosh Hashanah may be beyond the solemnity and ritual richness, a moment to show good taste in front of family and friends.
