Setting your Passover and Easter Table
With the promise of the spring holidays comes the very real possibility of families gathering to celebrate the season together this year – some for the first time in a long while. If you’re like us, you’re excited to make festive memories and savor a relaxing day with loved ones.
With Easter and Passover falling so close together, many families in the region will be celebrating together. A little advance planning and prep can go a long way to making the day special for everyone involved.
Hosting Easter brunch or a Passover Seder can be quite an undertaking. Both are traditionally multi-course meals that may require extra dinnerware and utensils. Now is the time to plan your menu and do a dry run setting the table, noting spacing and pieces you may need for the big day.
Lean Into Tradition
Was Grandma Sadie’s special Seder plate the star of the table when you were little? Do you remember Aunt Mary’s soup tureen full of steaming mayiritsa or bialy barszcz? Make an effort to track down and incorporate those cherished pieces that will make everyone feel at home.
Make New Memories
The spring holidays are a wonderful time to dress your table with pieces that speak to your personal tastes and the welcoming vibe you want to create. Fromental’s lovely Chinoiserie wallpapers are the inspiration for Paradis, the British interior design house’s dinnerware collection with Raynaud. In pure white or turquoise backgrounds, the fine Limoge porcelain would be perfect for dinner or dessert.
Share The Bounty
Seder meals require several elements and bunnies big and small need a place to safely lay their eggs. Consider making the centerpiece of pretty dyed eggs and grosgrain ribbon or offer communal bowls of saltwater, charoset and horseradish instead of crowding the table with individual portions.
Italian Twist Candles
Light The Way
Candles are a lovely symbol of both Passover and Easter and the high sheen on this Italian twisted set make these an elegant choice for your table or as a hostess gift. In 18 colors, including seasonal mint green and turtle dove.
