Party Planner Doris Dwek’s Impressive Turquoise and Gold Hanukka Table

1 Comment 17 December 2014

We are really lucky to have  this  Hanukka table setting from the famous Doris Dwek, an acclaimed party and event planner in the NYC area.

Doris, thank you so much  for all of your hard work and attention to every detail of your hanukkah holiday table decor!

Doris can  help you design a gorgeous one of a kind event invitation,  or if you want to create an impressive children’s party, bar mitzvah, or any type of memorable themed event!
(732)-687-1534

p.s.  Thank you Grace Dabah for the gorgeous photography!

“Hi Marlene,

For this Hanukka display, I applied  gold paint  mixed with gold glitter  to wood branches as a centerpiece. I also dipped dreidels into the gold paint and  tied them on to trees with pretty ribbon for the Hanukkah centerpiece . Gold sparkly  initials attached to mirrored squares were used  as elegant place cards.

Organza ribbon and chocolate coins were assembled and used as a napkin ring. I used inexpensive fabric from Joanne fabrics to make a cloth runner .

The artificial silk flowers look  are from Paris and can be purchased from  Surrey lane stores in Brooklyn and Deal N.J.
The glass goblets can also be purchased at Surrey Lane also. Happy Hanukka to all of the Jewish Hostesses out there!

Doris Dwek”

The Jewish Hostess Shops Ikea and West Elm for a Hanukka Blue Table Setting!

12 Comments 16 December 2014

 

 Please “like” this Hanukka post and share with your friends!  A lot of hostess effort went into this holiday table!

 (Enjoy from Hanukka 2011!)

Happy Hanukka to all of my Jewish Hostesses!

This year I decided to get an early start on my Hanuka table setting.Being that my Amex card was getting a little rusty, I decided to get into the holiday spirit and  venture out to Ikea and West Elm to see if I could whip up some Hanuka table decor inspiration on a budget.

I decided to stick with the traditional Hanukkah blue and silver color combo because I already owned blue water glasses given to me by my consuegro (Syrian word for son-in-law’s mother) as a Rosh Hashanah gift, plus I happen to own a set of blue and silver rimmed Greek style dishes (a perfect Macabee theme!).

After an hour or two of piling anything and everything blue or silver into my shopping cart at Ikea, this is what I finally ended up with:

  1. Hanukah blue cotton place mats at $1.99 each. A great buy!
  2. Silver mirrored squares-(come in a pack of 4- these are a great investment- buy a dozen or two- you can use them on a dessert bar, as placemats, or you can even line your entire table with them. Your friends will definitely ask you to borrow these mirrored squares when they see how cool they look on your table…) I placed 4 in a row as a runner in the center of the table and then place one atop each blue placemat.

 

3. Go run and buy these beautiful silver candles from Ikea before they run out of them! Eight of these festive candles look so elegant lined up along the center of the table-menorah style.  Ikea also has gorgeous cobalt blue glass candle holders that fit perfectly as a base for my  new silver candles.  I placed four candles into their bases in a row to the right and the left of my own “shamash” vase. (Note- my son reminded me that this “menorah display” cannot be used as the actual menorah- even if I decided to use a candle as a the shamash in the center- according to tradition, the menorah has to be fashioned out of one piece of metal, wood, or glass…like in the beit hamikdash…)

4. I couldn’t resist buying two velvety bluish purple pillows at $19.99 from Ikea to place on silver gray chairs (from B and B party rental in Brooklyn, N.Y.) at both heads of the table of the table.

5. Dashing into West Elm (while the whole family waited outside), I purchased  these stunning silvery shimmery cotton napkins at $7 each. They look perfect atop each plate. I neatly folded each one and topped with a sparkly dreidel. I also found delicious kosher blue and white swirley lollipops at West Elm that I placed on the  mirrored table runner as well.

Hanuka Flowers, Cakes, Cookies, Boxes and Sparkle and Chairs:

      1. Again, thank you to B and B party rental for these gorgeous silver grey chairs. Ballroom chairs always add that touch of elegance for all of your  holiday table decor and party needs. Call B and B at (718) 436 – 8433 or go visit at 1076 38th Street, Brooklyn, NY.
      2. My good friend Shirley Barnathan happens to be a Brooklyn and NYC florist. Check out her Facebook  florals  here. She ran over with some gorgeous Hanuka-blue dyed feathers, and within minutes, she draped them from my dining room chandelier. Shirley also filled my center vase with stunning silver sprayed leaves. Within seconds she picked up my dying orchid plants with replaced them with vibrant new ones. She also brought over some place card holders that I borrowed for the photo shoot. Its great to have friends in the business!
      3. The magnificent and gorgeous Hanukka cake is by Fortune Farca. You will be amazed at her bakery creations! Check out her Facebook page HERE!  The beautiful and delicious Hanukaa dreidel cookies are by the talented Esther Dana. Check out her Facebook page HERE There’s nothing like gorgeous holiday themed baked goods to cozy up the look of your table.
      4. Chocolate Hanukka Coins, Dreidel and Hanukka Ornaments are inexpensive and really add to the holiday excitement. Sticking to one or two colors within your scheme  give a more elegant look. Shop here for Hanukkah Table Accessories and inspiration!
      5. You can find silver boxes and gorgeous ribbon in  local shops or try sites like M and J trimmings for pretty Hanuka blue ribbons.
      6. Hanukka sprinkles and nonpareils can be used as “sand” to sprinkle around chocolate coins and dreidels. They will really add a lot of pizzaz to your table!  Click here for a selection of Wilton Kosher Sprinkles. Use the White Glitter Sprinkles for extra sparkle.
      7. P.S. Don’t forget to buy inexpensive Dreidel Ice Cube Molds! (see ice cube pic below). Kids love ‘em!
      8. Keep scrolling down below to see the rest of my Hanukka table setting.

Use these suggestions as a basic guide for your own unique Hanukkah table decor. Using your favorite silver or blue or white tableware as a base, and then shop around your favorite discount stores, florist, Crate and Barrel, Ikea, Target, or West Elm for fun accessories to add to your holiday centerpiece. Of course if you want to go all out, you can click on over to Barneys for a real first class treat -to your wallet!

Of course I can’t wait to see your Hanuka holiday tables! Please send your pics over to marlene (at) thejewishhostess.com.

There’s no time for Passover Panic this year!
Let Passover be a “BREEZE” this year with BREEZYS!

10 PASSOVER MUST-HAVES FOR THE JEWISH HOSTESS:

1.Why not make it after dinner cleanup quicker, easier and fun for kids? The crumber is the perfect item. This is a replica of what’s used in some of the fanciest restaurants in town, but even prettier! Call  (516)-374-1544 or email besy@aol.com to order.

 

Passover Crumber, The Jewish Hostess
2. The simplicity and elegance of Annie Glass as your  Passover dishes makes it a universally loved collection. The teudah from the Vaad of California stating that there is no coating on the glass, rather the gold and platinum are baked between layers of glass, means it can go from meat to dairy AND is dishwasher safe. I’m not sure which is more exciting. For a special Jewish Hostess discount, call  (516)-374-1544 or email besy@aol.com to order.

3. This is the first pot that you will want to use as a Passover serving dish! The shape and size will inspire you to make a stew or soup for your Passover seder menu. The  heavy duty aluminum with non-stick interior means even cooking throughout, and the intricate detail work on the handle and lid create a fantastic serving piece. For your  special Jewish Hostess 20% discount, call  (516)-374-1544 or email besy@aol.com.
Passover Pots, The Jewish Hostess
4. Your search for the perfect tray for matzah has ended! This wood and stainless tray by Namb’e is functional, sophisticated and durable. Made of acacia wood and Nambé alloy, this tray will be treasured for years to come. For a special Jewish Hostess discount, call  (516)-374-1544 or email besy@aol.com to order.
Matzo Tray, The Jewish Hostess
5. The most important part of Pessach is getting the kids involved!  These chocolate molds help create a fun tzefardaya dessert. Let the kids fill the mold with chocolate and drop in nuts,  or sprinkles! For a special Jewish Hostess discount, call  (516)-374-1544 or email besy@aol.com to order.
, The Jewish Hostess
6.Fashion in the kitchen! The French bull storage container is my favorite, it’s a set of 3 nesting bowls with lids for easy storage. Use as a serving bowl without the lid! So many different patterns to choose from- it’s easy to tell your meat from dairy! For a special Jewish Hostess discount, call  (516)-374-1544 or email besy@aol.com to order.
Passover Storage Containers, The Jewish Hostess
7. Pessach is all about the dip bowls, between the charoses, marror, salt water, horseradish… the list goes on and on. You can never have enough! I happen to love these square bowls because they are clear so it’s easy to see across the table. They are lightweight to pass and stack perfectly! Pair it with and elegant and whimsical dip spoon and it makes the perfect gift! For a special Jewish Hostess discount, call  (516)-374-1544 or email besy@aol.com to order.
Glass Dishes for Passover, The Jewish Hostess
8. Serving beverages at the Passover dinner table has never been easier and more elegant with these polycarbonate pitchers! They are dishwasher safe, shatter proof and literally look like cut glass. They come in an assortment of colors and patterns to match your dishes!  For a special Jewish Hostess discount, call  (516)-374-1544 or email besy@aol.com.
Pesach Serving Pieces, The Jewish Hostess
9. These impressive L’Objet salt and pepper shakers are a hostess’s dream. Jewelry for your table! It exemplifies hiddur mitzvah- the concept of beautifying a mitzvah such as setting a beautiful Passover seder table for your important guests.  For a special Jewish Hostess discount, call  (516)-374-1544 or email besy@aol.com to order.
L'objet, The Jewish Hostess
10. The hardest part of Pessach to most women is planning the menu. Breezy’s Mix & Match is the perfect solution using ingredient’s readily found in your home plus a few unique and healthy twists with spaghetti squash and quinoa!  For a special Jewish Hostess discount, call  (516)-374-1544 or email besy@aol.com to order.

Healthy Brunch By the Beach by Rina Dweck

1 Comment 01 August 2011

My friend Rina Dweck is a superb hostess, always whipping up summer salads and main dishes with ease.  Savor the photos below which illustrate her typical Shabbat lunch during the summer months.  Rina’s menu always  focuses on vegetarian, Mediterranean and healthy dishes.  She only uses fresh produce, preferably fresh, organic and locally grown. Friends and family always feel very comfortable at Rina’s table because everyone is involved in the preparation.

Her meals always taste especially unbelievable because she lives right on the ocean, and when you’ve got that view- there are absolutely no complaints!!! 

When she is not cooking, Rina also happens to be a fabulous artist! Check out Rina’s  Facebook  page PROJECT FACE where she  re-invents her own face daily.

Enjoy! Marlene

Leigh Klein’s Passover Seder Inspiration

4 Comments 01 April 2011

“Dear Marlene,
Here are pictures of our table. We have several children who attend and to keep them engaged and make things “fun” I include lots of props such as the 10 plague finger puppets (the adults usually fight over these) the 4 question finger puppets (one adult guest never took his off!) and frogs…lots and lots of frogs. I hide them everywhere and about half way through Seder they start flying. I found some little rubber frogs last fall and put them away for Seder, I folded them into all of the napkins as a little surprise!

Loving your Facebook Page and blog! They’ve been so helpful! Leigh Klein”

Jewish Hostess of the Week! Stacy Ayash’s Party For a Baby Girl

No Comments 22 March 2011

Meet Stacy Ayash- A very talented interior decorator who also finds time to whip up the most beautiful parties. Visit her gorgeous brand new interior decorating shop on Avenue U in Brooklyn. Hope you are inspired to spiff up your own gourmet table!  Marlene.

p.s. I’m looking for the next hostess of the week…

please send in your hostess ideas and pictures.


Anyone who entertains knows that its not always so easy but we always want to make it look that way.
After years of having guests over for holidays, and special occasions, I definitely know that my parties come together a lot easier these days. My biggest challenge is always creating something new and exciting for my guests.
The most recent party in my home was a collaborative effort. My mother in law wanted to celebrate the birth of her new grand daughter . I set up the flowers and the table decor,  and my mom cooked  the food.
Now you must know that the last party I did in my home I covered my entire table with grass and had very tall vases with orchids dripping out of the sides. So I knew I had to come up with something that would at least compare to last time.
The only difference was that now I had about 2 days to prepare, so I really needed to really put my thinking cap on. Here’s what I came up with………

I had my local mirror guy use my table pads as a template to cut the mirror and also cut some mirrored squares to serve the mazza (Syrian appetizers) on. All of the other serving pieces are the platinum Annie Glass mixed with Michael Aram platters. To add height and dimension, I used glass cube vases to prop up the serving platters. I poured pink jelly beans into the glass cubes to add the sweet softness to the table- after all the party was in honor of a baby girl.

The only thing missing was a spectacular centerpiece to really make the table pop, and the pink amarillo lillies really did the trick!

Easy Hot Chocolate From Scratch. Four Recipes. You Choose!

Easy Hot Chocolate From Scratch. Four Recipes. You Choose!

1 Comment 28 December 2010

Thank you Shirley C. Mamiye, Esther Serouya, Esther Mosseri. and Jacqueline Kapetas for sharing your heartwarming hot cocoa recipes on this bone chilling day. Marlene M.

Hot Cocoa Recipe #1:

Delightful Hot Chocolate:

Hi, it’s Shirley from Homebaked with a recipe for all those in need of a heartwarming, satisfying treat. Here’s an easy recipe for rich, creamy homemade hot chocolate. You can use any kind of chocolate you desire – bittersweet, semisweet, milk, white… or try mixing a few! Add peppermint extract into white chocolate cocoa for warm, wintery flavors, swirl in a few flakes of sea salt and homemade caramel into milk chocolate for a toffee spin, or a cinnamon stick and some vanilla for a delicious spiced hot cocoa. Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, try a pinch of cayenne pepper for a little kick. Top your creation with freshly whipped cream, toasted marshmallows, candy cane, or some more shaved chocolate.

makes one large or two small portions:

  • 1 1/2 cups milk (any fat content you like)
  • 6 heaping tablespoons chocolate chips

Directions for this Kosher Recipe

  1. In a small saucepan, gently heat milk over low heat.  Whisk often so the milk doesn’t burn.
  2. While the milk is heating, bring a medium saucepan with two inches of water to a boil. Place a heat-proof bowl with chocolate pieces over the simmering water. Make sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the simmering water. You’re creating a double boiler. Stir the chocolate pieces until melted.
  3. Add the melted chocolate to the hot milk. Whisk together until completely blended and add your favorite mix-ins. Pour into mugs and top with whatever you fancy.

Enjoy!

Hot Cocoa Recipe #2:

Hot Cocoa for One: by Esther Serouya (need de-cluttering? call Esther)

  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 3 tbs sugar
  • 1 cup hot vanilla rice dream or soy milk
  • bring milk to a boil in a saucepan and add rest of ingredients

sooo good and parve!

Hot Cocoa Recipe #3:

by Jacqueline Kapetas

Hi Marlene, I saw your Facebook status asking us for a hot cocoa recipe from scratch. My friend Sophia Cohen found this on allrecipes.com. I’ve also made it parve with rice dream or soy milk.

Ingredients  •  1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder •  3/4 cup white sugar •  1 pinch salt •  1/3 cup boiling water •  3 1/2 cups milk •  3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract •  1/2 cup half-and-half cream

Its yum!

Directions  1.  Combine the cocoa, sugar and pinch of salt in a saucepan. Blend in the boiling water. Bring this mixture to an easy boil while you stir. Simmer and stir for about 2 minutes. Watch that it doesn’t scorch. Stir in 3 1/2 cups of milk and heat until very hot, but do not boil! Remove from heat and add vanilla. Divide between 4 mugs. Add the cream to the mugs of cocoa to cool it to drinking temperature.

Hot Cocoa Recipe #4:

Hey Marlene, I found this great fluffy hot chocolate recipe online today it came out delicious! Esther Mosseri

makes 2 servings:

  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tsp and 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsps cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

combine milk, sugar, cocoa and marshmallows in small pot over medium heat for about 8 min until marshmallows melt, stirring, after the marshmallows melt, take it off the fire and add the vanilla. Ladle into mugs, and enjoy!

The Calm Book- Daily Meditations for a Jewish Mom

The Calm Book- Daily Meditations for a Jewish Mom

No Comments 20 March 2010

Excerpts from the soon to be published  The Calm Book , by Tzirelchana,mom and writer devoted to promoting world calmness.

We recently started a new year. Yes, according to the Mishna, Rosh Hodesh Nissan, the first day of the month of Nissan is the new year for festivals and kings and aren’t all we Jews royal, all of us Jewish women princesses. To me, the idea of starting the year during the spring  feels intuitively right.

Aside from Pesach cleaning, a great way to celebrate is to de-clutter. . De-cluttering is like dieting except you can eat as much as you like while your house loses the weight. And you find such interesting stuff. Calendars from 2006, and 5 and 4, math tests, going back at least a decade, and not to mentional ties of any size, jackets with shoulder pads to fit a linebacker, expired medicines…

Right now, I’m preaching but I’m not practicing. Decluttering just doesn’t seem so royal. Does Queen Elizabeth go round Balmoral or Windsor filling giant hefy bags? Still I  know its what I need to do and though the prospect makes me yawn—I’d rather be writing or painting, So here’s a start. A procrastinator’s prayer.

: Dear G-d, make we want to get the junk out of my house and out of my soul. And then help me to do it.Amen.

The Calm Book- Post #2

You heard it through the grapevine, that your niece or sister or first cousin became a Kallah or a mother…None of the baalei simcha the primary parties, who happened to be your very closest relatives actually  phoned to inform you..

Though  you are  happy, your primary emotion is hurt.  You sulk. You feel sorry for yourself. You may even speak badly of the people who didn’t tell you—what kind of a family is this anyway? And how did you end up in it?

You know that you have to give them the benefit of the doubt so you think up excuses, reasons why they didn’t call, the time difference, telephone troubles, too overwhelmed, but the hurt has settled in your heart. You can’t seem to pry it lose.

You unload to your journal or your therapist or your friend and you have a good cry.

Families. We have expectations. Of how things should be. Of how we should be treated..

Lets reframe. Consider, really consider that the ba’alei simcha aren’t out to get you. That they have good reasons for not phoning yet.

Before my own nieces’s shidduch was finalized. I heard about it through a third party. I figured that my brother didn’t care about me enough to call and  I  hurt, needlessly.The shidduch wasn’t final yet. He didn’t want to tell anyone until it was a done deal and he was quite right to keep quiet.

Now, I’m going to do teshuva,. Whenever something like this happens, I will just keep still and wait. More shall be revealed.
