Ikey’s First Birthday – A CARNIVAL PARTY THEME!

1 Comment 09 May 2012

Wow! Dalia wasn’t clowning around when she decided to pursue the carnival/circus theme party. I love it! Thanks Dalia! Marlene
“Hi Marlene,
 I love perusing your site for ideas and inspiration!!! I wanted to share with you some pictures from my son Ikey’s first birthday party.  I chose a circus/carnival theme. The dessert table consisted of a variety of fun carnival-themed candies, including popcorn, large shelled peanuts in small personalized cups, mustache chocolate lollipops, large whirly pops, cotton candy, chocolate covered pretzels, cupcakes, small personalized packages of animal crackers, candy buttons, dumbbells made of marshmallows, as well as other assorted candies.  For the food, I served hot dogs with different toppings, french fries, corn on the cob, hot salted pretzels, and taco salad.  I found wonderful food/treat labels and water bottle labels on etsy.com.  I decorated the room with a carnival bunting.  I also made my own napkin rings (an idea inspired by your site – and very simple, I might add!) using red and white striped grosgrain ribbon and personalized “Ikey” cut-outs.  The kids played pin the nose on the clown, and we also had a “photo booth” where they dressed up using silly costume accessories (e.g., clown wig, tie, sunglasses, jester hat, huge inflatable clown shoes).  Everyone had a fabulous time!!! Thanks for letting me share! Dalia Dabah”

Shavuot Tablescape from Table Set GO!- Great Floral Centerpiece Ideas!

No Comments 09 May 2012

 

In the summer of 2011, the Table Set GO event in Deal, New Jersey (sponsored by the Morris I. Franco Community Cancer Center) showcased the communities’ women’s striking table decor talents. Each table represented a unique Jewish holiday ‘s theme. The botanical holiday of Shavuot was displayed by Barbara Chehebar, Ruthie Bibi, and Adele Pardo. This table decor’s shades of blues and purples heralded the arrival of Shavuot’s custom of decorating one’s home, the synagogue and even the Torah scroll itself with greens and flowers in honor of the holiday. This custom of flowers and greens was based upon a statement in Midrash that the foot of Mount Sinai (where the Jews stood in awe, awaiting the granting of the Torah) was carpeted with greens and sweet smelling flowers.

To accent the Shavuot table’s floral decor and centerpiece, the girls used Kim Seybert napkin rings, geometric Pucci scarves, sky blue bordered china dinnerware, and sparkling crystal stemware. Delicate blue dotted quilted linens were the backdrop to this elaborate variety of sweet smelling Shavuot florals. Mini Torahs and two mountains of roses, represented the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinaii. Thank you ladies for all of your hard work, table setting ideas inspiration! I’m so glad that we have the photos to remember this stunning event!
