Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, begins this Sunday. Here are 7 ideas, shared on Fox 5 NY's Good Day New York, to make your celebration a little more elegant and festive.
APPLE HONEY BOWL
Apple core carved with a melon baller to become a receptacle for honey. Everyone can have they own, so it’s clean and cute. Pictured here with Wedding Hydrangea Salad Plate and Medieval Leaf Cocktail Napkins.
CHALLAH HONEY BOWL
Using Smitten Kitchen's challah recipe, I created a long braid and then connected the edges to make a round. I popped an oven proof bowl in the middle of the bread before baking then filled it with honey after baking. This is a gorgeous centerpiece on your dining table or buffet table.
COUSCOUS WITH POMEGRANATE in a SQUASH BOWL
The multitude of couscous beads and pomegranate seeds represent the number of blessings you hope to have in the new year. In a scooped out roasted squash bowl, put the couscous pomegranate mixture. You can also add silvered almonds. Recipe here. Pictured with Cane Chargers, Wedding Hydrangea Dinner Plate, Yellow Oval Placemat, Tortoise Flatware, Green Plaid Napkins, Millefiori Wine Glasses, and Millefiori Flutes.
Can use store bought sugar cookie dough or our sugar cookie dough recipe. Create a stencil using a cardboard box. Shape the sugar cookie dough, bake, and outline the cookies with chocolate. Recommend getting the dough cold before baking to avoid spreading. A cute craft for kids. The plates are Chefanie.
TO DECORATE THE TABLE:
Pop apples onto wooden skewers and include in your flower arrangements. This bud vase is from the Silver Vase set.
APPLE CANDLE HOLDERS
Carve out little round divots in apples. Insert the taper or tea light candles. Here, we are using Painted Harvest Tapers, but you can use any of our unique candles.
APPLE SEAT ASSIGNMENTS
I sourced these paper leaf tags from amazon, but you can also write each person’s name on the actual apple with a sharpie.
