The Pesach Seder is a culmination of many things....weeks of cleaning, hours of cooking, more hours of shopping, days of having the kids home and bored.

But it's also the anniversary of our nationhood.  It's the commemoration of our redemption from the seemingly endless exile of Egypt.  And even if we are dropping with exhaustion, we get a second wind when the Seder begins.  I attribute this yearly phenomenon to the sparkle in the children's eyes, the memories of all the sedorim of our youth, and the desire to create new memories that our children will cherish as they grow,.

Passover Seder Pillowcases

Add some "Seder" to your Seder!

It's that uniquely special night of the year, the Seder table adorned with a pristine white table cloth, the freshly polished silver glistening, everyone standing around in their new Yom Tov  finery – and then, there’s the assorted gathering of pillow cases that always seem to look out of place. From the boys room  the blue denim, from the girls room the pink floral, from the guestroom the brown paisley.....you get the idea!

Seder Table Before Matching Pillowcases Seder Table After Matching Pillowcases

So as I made my first Passover, I decided I would shop around and find matching white pillowcases to give my Seder a uniformed look. After running around to a number of stores (Marshalls, Target, T.J. Max etc, etc) I realized that there were really no white SHAMS available on the market. Thus began my idea to manufacture a uniformed, easy to care for (machine washable) , elegant Seder pillowcase .

Purim gives us a unique opportunity to unleash our creativity with a bit of a funky twist.  Most of our holiday meals are formal kind of affairs.  Purim is just begging for us to have fun and introduce that element of surprise into our table setup.

Kumquat Tree

Years ago, I made a fruit topiary centerpiece for a Bar Mitzvah which took place the week of Tu B’shvat. Though it looked beautiful, it was not practical at all. The moment someone took a fruit off, the whole structure began to unravel. Last year, a friend of mine asked me to make fruit centerpieces for her daughter’s Shabbos Sheva Brachos which came out on Tu B’shvat. This time, I was determined to make something more practical. Originally, I intended to use curly branches from my florist, but while I was planning this I spotted an all-year-round bush in my yard with beautiful leaves on it, which is what you see in the picture.  I used some thin wire to hang kumquats on the branches and a striking “tree” centerpiece was created that still looked great after its fruits were “picked”.
