An Almost-Spring Sheva Berachot by Ruthie Bodner

No Comments 01 February 2012

Thank you Ruthy Bodner for sending in your beautiful sheva berachot pics to share with our Jewish Hostess readers!

I especially love your blue and orange floral themed tables- so springy and  bright! Your place cards and challah plate with the molded rose butter (or margarine) add such a festive touch.  I’m sure your sheva berachot dinner party was a huge success! Marlene

Pictures above- I enjoy doctoring placecards and having fun with that. My husband and I collect salt and pepper shakers and like to to put out the wedding themed ones at our Sheva Berachot tables.


Lego Pieces Centerpiece
-At the time, my son used his Lego skills for the centerpiece. Cute, no? The whole family gets involved with poster making, signage, collages etc.

Jewish Table Arrangement
-Took the arrangements from a wedding and made up a focal point for the kitchen/bar area.

Jewish Table Settings Banner
-Saw similar personalized banners on different websites and attempted to personalize this SB for our friend. Had a blast doing it but it’s not as easy as it looks. Time consuming.

Fruit Centerpiece
-Plants were inexpensively purchased at Costco and I put them in this display as a centerpiece for an almost spring Sheva Berachot.

Kids Flower Crafts for the Shabbat table

Cupcake liner flowers are one of those crafts that just make you smile! What’s not to love? A few days ago I showed you some romantic carnation-like versions here. So now I thought I’d share this little colorful bouquet, made the same way just with the addition of some blue-striped liners and some bright paint.

Its easy for kids and moms too!

I’m originally from California, where Mexican heritage has quite a presence, so though I’m preparing for the upcoming Jewish holiday of Shavuos, I just couldn’t help but think how great these would be for Cinco de Mayo! And I even pulled out my authentic Mexican blanket for the photo! And by the way, large vintage sugar and flour shakers (or even salt and pepper, but they’re usually much smaller) make great little vases, just stick the stems into the holes and voila!

For a complete cupcake liner flower tutorial, visit my previous post here. Enjoy!
