(PLEASE “Like” this post!!)
Thank you to all of my Jewish Hostesses for sharing your Shabbat tables with other Jewish hostesses all over the world!
Each table is an expression of the unique flair that you all have. By creating a Shabbat table that is truly your own, you are creating memories for your children that will be treasured for years to come. Ladies! Keep the pictures coming! Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and be featured on The Jewish Hostess!
As a special thanks to my Jewish Hostesses- this week I will be sending the women who submitted Shabbat pics for this post, a free Jewish Hostess apron!
Shabbat Shalom! Marlene
1- “Hi Marlene, I love using accessories from nature for my Shabbat table.
My table has a classic white pintuck tablecloth, with coral and seashells scattered in the center. The challah cover has pink roses.’
Here is a picture of my shabbat table. I made challah napkin rings (inspired from one of the Susie Fishbein cookbooks) and bought some bright colored flowers.”
3- “Hi Marlene,
I live in Baltimore, Maryland and really enjoy your website. The name of my business is Swirl. I specialize in creating handmade, beaded serving utensils and giftware. My creations are sold both in the retail market as well as the wholesale sector. Have a look at my website when you get a chance: www.swirlgifts.com
The look I am going for with this poolside Shabbat setting is along the lines of casual elegance.
Among the colorful pieces I design and have included for this shoot:
- Challah Knife
- Pewter Kiddush Cup
- Shot Kiddush Cups
- Wine Pourer decorated with summer flowers
- Wine Goblets
- Salt and Pepper Shakers
- Challah Basket
- Ice Bucket
- Water Pitcher
- Spreader and Spoons
The assorted colors make for a beautiful summer shabbat afternoon.
I hope you enjoy the look.

5- ”Hi Marlene, My kids got way too excited when they heard me talking about this ’contest’ – they insisted on creating the table with me…so we ended up with a summery kidcrafty shabbat table…which absolutely applies to us, lol! I did not put place settings out yet, since it’s outside :) You get our ‘centerpiece’ with our summer decorations and ritual items. My three year old made the kiddush cup, my six year old made the challah cover and painted the ‘tea set’ from which we used two cups as candlesticks, I made the seashell box a few years ago, and my eight year old says he thinks he needs a new apron ;)”

6- “Hi Marlene- this picture is the first course at a Friday night Shabbos table. The sushi was made with gefilte fish from a ready made roll. It looked lovely on the table and made a beautiful presentation.” Sara Katsen
7- “Hi Marlene, this is my daughter’s first Shabbat in their home in Florida.”
I love your web site!
I’ve attached my Shabbat table pictures, but I must confess that I am a simple hostess and these pics were taken after a minor flood & BIG MESS.
Keep up the good work!
