Please “LIKE” my SHABBAT TABLE! 

First of all, I would like to thank all of my Jewish Hostesses for sending in their beautiful summery Shabbat table pics for our “Summery Shabbat Table Contest”.

I also knew that if I didn’t post my own Summery Shabbat table pics pretty soon then I would probably get officially fired as “The Jewish Hostess” by all of my wonderful readers, so here goes:

I decided to see if I could mix all of the  purple, lavender and blue tabletop items in my house,and see if I could whip up a “Summery Shabbat” table for my family to enjoy.
On Tuesday I was lucky enough to receive a gorgeous bouquet of hydrangeas and roses from a friend(by Sheila Bibi Fine Flowers).  The flowers were still so pretty and alive by Friday morning, I decided to separate them and divide them up into short blue juice glasses that I’ve had forever.

I placed them on gold leaf trays that I bought last summer from One Kings Lane.The blue flower candle holders are also from One Kings Lane.

I always find great table top treasures from that site when I don’t have time to shop around in the stores. I placed tea lights in blue glass votive that I found in Pier One imports about 10 years ago.

Atop the mauve laquered dining room table( that one belonged to my parents), I placed three cool tablecloths that were also purchased from One Kings Lane.

(They were originally labeled as towels, so I bought them thinking they were cool as kitchen towels. When they came in HUGE I decided to use them as tablecloths instead of returning them.)

In the center of the table below I placed some flowers atop a gold sprayed mosaic tray that my daughter made in summer camp a couple of years ago.
