Shabbat Table of the Week

1 Comment 23 December 2010

Today I mixed lots of vibrant colors-hot pink salad plates and a scarf that I wore with a gown acts as my runner. I placed large rectangle  white plates from Ikea on top of green chargers from Kim Seybert.  The placemats are woodcut from Home Depot (I had Home Depot custom cut some woodcut panels for me) and I glued leopard fabric  on top to complete the look. The vase is vintage from the 20’s and the napkin rings are from Pier One Imports.   I try not to restrict myself to what really goes together. Its more about creating a table that works with my attitude for the day!” Shelly Anteby.

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!!!
