Crafting Jewish Style wishes you a Happy and Sweet New Year!

I like setting the holiday table early. This way every time I pass the dining room I feel that I am more prepared than I really am. For Rosh Hashanah I usually fill vessels with apples, pomegranates and other fruit for an easy and autumnal themed centerpiece. I fill out the arrangement with hydrangeas from the garden and/or  mums or some other Fall flowers from Shoprite.

For the place settings I've purchased mini pomegranates and placed a die cut circle with a Shanah       Tova sticker on it on top of the pomegranate. I find that pomegranates make great decorations and we love eating them both for their symbolism and because they taste great! I can't wait to try them     in Maya's recipe.                                                                                                                                        

That's it for my quick, easy and elegant holiday tablescaping ideas.

 It's hard to believe that another year has once again flown by. Its a time of reflection as well as a time of hope and prayers. In the midst of all the cooking, baking and mundane preparations (Does everyone have ironed shirts for shul? Did I cook enough food?...) I send up small requests (OK, big ones too) that this year should truly be a good and peaceful one for everyone.
I wish you all a year of happiness, peace, good health, prosperity and may all your prayers be answered for the good!


  1. Beautiful table. I can;t believe yours is laready set! I better get back to work. Shana Tova!

  2. L'shana tova to you and your family, your table looks beautiful. I also set early, but so the guests don't try to help. Love the place-settings.

  3. Happy (late) new year to you! Love this idea of the fruit on each plate! Very nice & I'll have to bookmark this for next year.
