Magical Moments

With this tablescape, I wanted to encapsulate some of the magic of Purim. It’s a time to join with family and friends and celebrate the joy of our salvation. The funky colors, shapes, and textures on this table play off this theme, with the black marble as a base to make all the elements pop.

Floral Collection

The flowers here were sourced from Trader Joe’s (and my own backyard).
I placed some mini orchid plants for an extra pop, while the chrysanthemums, alstroemeria, ranunculus, and background foliage add depth of color.

Dusty Palette

The colors for the scheme were based on the beautiful green and blue placemats. Though Purim is sometimes associated with brighter and deeper tones, I wanted to keep the mood lighter, so I went for paler colors. To tie everything together, I used these chunky Tiffany-blue candlesticks, along with a variety of soft muted candles. The flowers and fruit add color, while the dishes and napkins are more muted, creating an overall collected look.

Make It Personal

This tablescape includes grapes, wine, and cork. Each setting gets a make-your-own cocktail with fruit juices to add in. Personalized shot glasses complete the overall effect.

Color Plays

I used a bamboo napkin ring and a neutral-colored napkin to balance the more prominent pieces like the colorful glass cups. Don’t be afraid to play with color, texture, and interesting shapes when it comes to setting your table. If you like it, go for it!
