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!
I love discovering new products. I recently found these plastic domes at Michaels, and of course I had to bring them home. They’re great for filling with small candies, and so this grogger came to be. You can color-coordinate it to match your decor.
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.
This mishloach manos is so, so pretty and healthy too!
I always thought that pickling vegetables required a long and drawn out process. That is, until I actually tried it for myself. In all actuality, pickling vegetables is extremely easy, quick, and a great way of bringing new taste to your veggies!
We love the fact that pickled veggies can be prepared way in advance.
Your savory-loving friends and neighbors will thank you! I made the pickled turnips and cauliflower and bought the olives.
My brother Boruch and my sister-in-law Reva are always spot on with their mishloach manos — neat, easy, smart, and practical. (This is only one of their claims to FAME!) Last year they gave these mini charcuterie boards, which I copied here to the T!
“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.
