Not Your Grandma’s Shabbat Dinner Table…

3 Comments 16 April 2010

Not that there is anything wrong with my grandma, there is no chicer woman on earth and I steal almost all of my ideas from her…. But, this modern table setting is not quite her type!!!  First, I used a scrap of fabric that I had left over from my bulletin board project, and I threw it on the table… I like that it doesnt cover the entire table‘s width, and that the front and back edges are cut not sewn. I think it adds to the flavor!

I used my basic white dishes instead of my “fancy” ones, but I mixed them with the gold silverware that I normally use with my other set. (Sometimes a basic white dish is the best thing you can ask for! It may be boring, but it allows you to be so much more creative with your accessories!)

I used black linen napkins from Conran Shop in lucite napkin rings, and the woven wicker placemats were from Pottery Barn. I love the wicker placemats, they add texture to the table.  My kiddush cup was once part of a set that I bought at an antique store, but alas, it is the lone survivor!

I used a gold leaf tray from home goods for my challah… The two black studded vases are also from home goods. The center one is from Ikea and I think it is probably the best $49 dollars I ever spent!

Of course, I will be adding little bowls of olives, and some of my meal to the table so I dont want to clutter it up before they even get here. I will be moving the big vase to the server when we sit at the table.

What do you think? I think its pretty cool!!!
