Passover 2017 (5777)

Chag Sameach Pesach!

This Pesach was the first year that my family has had room to host a Seder in several years. I wanted to make it extra special and was inspired by the clever decorators on Pinterest. I bought a bunch of items from Amazon hoping it would all come together for a beautiful Passover table scape. As it turns out, it was beautiful and fun to create! For those of you seeking ways to make your table special next year, I thought I’d post pics from our Seder and links to the items I bought for this look.

I wanted to recreate the scene of Moses leading the children of Israel through the Reed (red) Sea on dry ground. I had the pleasure of seeing this sea a few weeks ago in Eilat, Israel. The water was truly many shades of blue from aquamarine to deep navy; it was breath-taking. I used small glass beads to mimic this look. I bought an inexpensive blue tablecloth to represent the Yam Suf and a simple roll of burlap as a runner that doubled as “dry ground.” I also wanted to depict the pillar of fire that protected Israel from the Egyptians. I found some micro LED lights on wire strands that I wound around my Sabbath candles. To showcase Pharaoh, I bought a pyramid meant for a fish tank. The little wood people are simple arts and crafts figures meant to be painted, but I loved that they are “faceless” —- they can be anyone. Me. You. Anyone. The Moses and Pharaoh figurines came in a set together from the toy department on Amazon. Below the photographs, I’ve linked to each item on Amazon. The whole table scape is only about $115! Save them in your cart and buy one at a time throughout the year for a beautiful Passover table in 2018.

Next year in Jerusalem!

If you look closely, you can see Pharaoh (and his pyramid) in the background on the far end of the table, behind the pillar of fire (candles).
