Rosh Hashanah is the first holiday table of Autumn we set and one we are particularly enjoying this year. Our co-founder Stephanie considers Rosh Hashanah one of her favourite holidays because it represents the wish for a sweet New Year. 

At Setting Pretty we always love the opportunity to bring natural elements to our table decor. The symbols of apples and honey are so predominant in celebrating Rosh Hashanah and become the key ingredient not only in the menu but in Stephanie's table decor. 
Here is Stephanie’s table for Rosh Hashanah 2021. She set the tone by using Setting Pretty vintage floral napkins and tablecloth. The layers of cool colours help create a rustic and bright backdrop.


The crab apples scattered throughout the table and in the centrepieces really lifted the red tones you see throughout the floral pattern and kept with our Rosh Hashanah theme. In addition to fruit, seasonal flowers were chosen to coordinated with our linens and helped add texture to the table. Julie’s beautiful gold William Yeoward pomegranates were a very special and symbolic addition to the table. For extra depth, the table was layered with rattan charger plates and custom made linen placemats in coordinating cornflower blue along with cornflower blue taper candles. 


Apple Place cards

Each family member received a personalised red apple and their own honey pot with honey stick. This is when double dipping is allowed!

Stephanie’s Rosh Hashanah Menu

Stephanie incorporated symbolic fruits and traditional ingredients into her recipes and menu.  Pomegranates are traditionally used and meant to represent the promise of eternal life while the sweetness of honey and apples is meant to represent the wish for a sweet New Year.
