Southern Style: Tablescapes To Inspire You For Rosh Hashanah
The Jewish New Year festival, Rosh Hashanah literally means “head of the year”. It takes place in early Autumn and includes festive meals both night and day. We’ve rounded up our favorite modern service ware and linens to inspire your Rosh Hashanah tablescape.

It is traditional to begin the meal on the first night with slices of apple dipped in honey. Before eating the apple, we make the ha’eitz blessing and then say, “May it be Your will to renew for us a good and sweet year.” This tablescape features a runner of lush greenery, wheat, artichokes and apples to create an abundant centerpiece. If you want to host your dinner celebration outside, be sure to check out our rustic furniture, like our Grayson Farm Table and elegant Cross-back Chairs.
Pears & Pomegranates
Aside from apples, pears are commonly used in sweet desserts. They can also be used to decorate your table, as with pomegranates. Many eat pomegranates, giving voice to a wish that “our merits be many like the seeds of the pomegranate.” These fruits are not eaten on the second night of the holiday. Instead, opt for a “new fruit” or a fruit that has not been eaten since it was last in season.
