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!
I love the versatility of using a pail for packaging. I used pails here to create three entirely different themes. The ideas are endless! You can design a wrapper yourself, use a professional graphic artist, or simply line the pail with pretty scrapbooking paper.
