Growing up, one of the highlights of my Purim was watching my Uncle Shmuel N. knock down the Haman (and sons) cookies at the end of the day. Every Rosh Chodesh Adar, my aunt Shoshana baked the cookies and hung them from her chandelier, where they dangled until they met their “demise” during al hanissim. Whether you use this idea as a centerpiece or hang the cookies from your chandelier, they will definitely create memories that will “hang around” for a while! Bake cookies and decorate them on any level - with chocolate chips, sprinkles, royal icing, fondant, and everything in between!
For years, I've been toying with the idea of a circus-themed Purim Seudah. With all the fun and action in abundance, it would certainly capture the spirit of the day. However, after much research on circus tent centerpieces, I did not have much to show for it. Thankfully, the Stamp Studio was able to carry out my vision with the creation of these adorable tents featured below.
“Reel in” some Purim fun! Don’t worry, this isn’t as fishy as it looks! Fill a fish-design pencil case with some fish-themed items. I used herring, but you can “scale” back and use a tuna pouch instead. Your friends will be hooked. After all, mazal Adar dagim!
This Purim, you can “host” the characters of the Purim story at your seudah with these adorable runners, napkin rings, and placemats! A big thanks to The Stamp Studio for helping me carry out my vision to bring the royal ambience of Shushan to your table.
My instructions for this article was to put together avariety of place settings using the plethora of fun, funky, colorful, eye popping , (etc!) paper goods available. I hope you have as much fun as I did choosing your Purim decor .
