On Tuesday July 11, the fabulously talented women of the Sephardic community in Deal, New Jersey unleashed their creative table setting talents to amaze hundreds of Jewish women who arrived to support the Morris I. Franco Community Cancer Center. This event, staged on the spacious summer porch of the home of our gracious hosts, Charles and Ariella Ben Dayan, was a competition that consisted of eight teams of 1-5 women per team. Each team was given a random holiday theme, in which they created a unique table setting. The basic rule was that they must use a 48 inch round table that was supplied to them, and from there on in, the sky was the limit. An impressive lunch, chinese auction gifts, and demonstrations were also featured during the day.
Your Shabbat meal will never be the same after you view this elegant Shabbat table that was displayed by Eva Ben Dayan. It definitely put us all into a tranquil Shabbat mood with its aqua blue and silver themed tableware. White coral Kim Seybert chargers set the scene for this stunning table. The napkins and napkin rings, also by Kim Seybert were also a magnificent addition. Ava chose modern sterling silver Shabbat candlesticks, and kiddush and netilat yadayim cup for a glamorous sparkle.
The treasure of the table was the hand embroidered Challah cover that Ava brought over from her native country of Columbia, and everyone was inquiring how they could purchase one for the upcoming Rosh Hashanah holidays.
I also fell in love with these dotted embroidered cotton tablecloths!!!
After doing a bit of research I found out:
- The dots come in tons of gorgeous colors: fuchsia, lime green, persimmon, yellow, brown, beige, orange, white on white, dark green, kiwi, black, turquoise and red!
- You can purchase this design on napkins, coasters, and place mats.
- Table cloths can be made in custom sizes for your Shabbat and holiday meals.
- They are machine washable.
