“Happiness lies not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.”
— Franklin D. Roosevelt
 
The satisfaction of sitting in the succah is all the more appreciated by those who invest time and effort into building and decorating it. Every family’s succah bears its own trademark, and once Yom Tov arrives, the simple paneling and humble flooring are magically transformed into a holy abode.
The decorations adorning a succah also have many a story to tell. Some are heirlooms or prized possessions that are hung as family tradition. Others are projects proudly brought home from school by children. A professional-looking, homemade accessory is a welcome addition, especially if it doesn’t entail hours of work.


Family First brings you to a decoration that will brighten any succah and isn’t too much hassle. Gracing a succah with flowers is always Yom Tov appropriate. And these vases will have your families and guest gazing upward and marveling.
