  1. What a lovely idea, I had not heard of that Jewish tradition. My fathers sister was married twice (her first husband died), both were Jewish and she followed the traditions but I don’t remember her doing this one.

    Your table looks fabulous, you must have so many table settings and plenty of space to store them away :).


    1. Ha ha, Lee, I am SO out of space! Every time I think I have it all worked out, I go out and buy something new… lol. Yes, It’s nice to have a celebratory holiday since Jewish traditions tend to focus on overcoming persecution! We joke that our holidays are always… “we were oppressed, we overcame, let’s eat!” ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. What a lovely table! There is something so beautiful about red and how it just makes a table pop! Your reds are everywhere and look so gorgeous with your chairs too.
    How fun! I learned so much about the Jewish traditions. What a joy to sit down to this table and celebrate Rosh Hashanah! I love knowing the year too – 5775!!!

    1. Thanks Jacqueline! It’s nice to be able to share and have people appreciate your traditions… ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for taking the time to comment!!

  3. Lori the combo of red and khaki is wonderful together they really compliment each other.your roses are so fresh it’s like if I had smell a vision I would have gotten a huge breath of them.your red and white linen napkins really had me I envy you this material. always thoroughly enjoy your tables thank you for taking the time to put together well thought out tables.Susie

  4. Hello there, Lory! I’ve gotten an education on top of a truckload of eye candy today!!! It’s always good to learn things about other religions and cultures. I should have majored in sociology because I really, really enjoy learning about and studying others. My downfall was that I hate to fly and travel, so…! ๐Ÿ™‚ But thank you for the lessons. I had heard about the pomegranate seeds but didn’t know about the round challah. THAT’S why I’ve seen those in the bakery recently!

    This is gorgeous! The roses are so, so pretty and work so beautifully for the occasion. I like how you slipped in a little casualness by adding the gingham ribbon. The distressed pots really look terrific, too. The ribbon and pots don’t allow the roses to get too, too serious.

    The jars of honey are so sweet…literally and figuratively! What a great idea! I love the way you tied a similar ribbon on them as on the vases. Nice segue!

    You paid a lot of attention to detail. It’s beautiful! Happy Fall!!!

  5. Wow Lory! The table is beautiful! I love the roses and apples together on the table with the red berries!! Great photos and I learned about your traditions! Love it all!

  6. Oh, what a gorgeous table Lory!!! Loving the combination of apples and roses! You attention to detail is amazing! Thanks so much for sharing the customs of your beautiful sacred day!

    1. Thank you so much, Yvonne! I truly value that comment coming from you… ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog!

  7. I came for last minute inspiration, and yes, that’s what I got! You never fail to amaze me! And I love red roses… ๐Ÿ™‚
    (I am the same woman whining before Hanukkah a couple of years ago!)

    Thank you so much!
