Tonite for Shabbat I did a semi-formal table setting. I have a small breakfast nook style dining area rather than a grand dining room. We’re a family of four and the kids are less than 3 years old-so we keep it fun and informal. I used dreidel shaped dishes to hold my salads and applesauce. My Crate and Barrel dishes coordinate with my latke platter. I have a special latke spatula too.
The placemats for my husband and I are fun because you can rotate them to “light” candles. Those will go to the boys when they’re older. I used plastic because I have littles and meals are messy. Still they’re festive and fun -that’s what the holidays are all about. My challah cover is brand new from our trip to Israel -I’ll be sharing more about that experience soon during the holiday season. As we celebrate I’ll be sharing our adventures during our “eight crazy nights!”
