It’s so special to revive family heirlooms, especially around Yom Tov time, using old china, flatware, crystal, tablecloths….
From creative displays to inventive tablescapes, family treasures can be re-invented in modern settings.
I recently received an old set of “bishtek” (German for “cutlery”) that had belonged to my Oma which was brought over from Germany close to 75 years ago. How special to use the same cutlery that graced her Yom Tov table as I serve my own family.
A lace tablecloth is the perfect element to tie everything together. This exquisite lace tablecloth from European Art Design actually looks vintage. It’s available at all linen shops in Brooklyn, Monsey, Lakewood, and Monroe. Click here for more stunning lace tablecloth options.
Rachel of Primrose Flower Shoppe incorporated pomegranates on vines in the arrangements to give them a special Rosh Hashanah feel. Arranged in antique-looking urns, these too add to the old world, vintage feel.
I worked with Personally Printed NJ to create a simanim graphic that I copied on transparency paper and simply placed on top of a white plate. This free download is available for Kosher.com readers, too! You can place the simanim right on top of the transparency when you serve them.
