Rosh Hashanah flashback-2011!
Raquel Habert is a very busy woman. Besides finding the time to cater everybody else’s Rosh Hashanah holiday table, she also found time to create a fabulous Parisian lunch for her entire family. This lunch is a perfect inspiration for SUKKOT, so keep these pics on your desktop and wait for your stomach to start rumbling!!! Call Raquel to cater your next party! Enjoy! Marlene

Hi Marlene,

Inspired from my trip to Paris last year – I wanted to serve all the food in individual portions Not being able to  find the right table cloth, so I went to the fabric store and bought a black leather cloth and made a runner from that black and white fabric. I happen to love inspiring messages, so each Eiffel tower place card holder  had a word printed on it – happiness, gratitude, honor, love grace etc … and each card also the guest’s name on it.

I found butterflies at Kitchen Caboodles and placed them on my napkins.
Mirrors were used as chargers.
I set up the food in the kitchen on display boxes with mirrors And I also bought lamp posts online to create the Paris street setting.
I also got the individual ramekins from kitchen caboodles and the martini glasses and large glasses for salads.

I’ll send over the pics now !

Celebrate Your Exotic Shavuot Feast Outdoors!

By Elizabeth Braha of Simple Dwellings Interior Design

“I am always shopping for new products for clients (and for me too!).  This Shavuot I will be feasting in style poolside and I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect blend of unique and splashy melamine dishes to make my dairy meals extra special. I’m so excited to share this bright and striking tablescape.  I love this exotic Asian collection by Kim Seybert and I’ve paired it with black for a little edge.  Happy Shavuot!”
