Rosh Hashanah: A Holiday of Hope and Abundance
Rosh Hashanah is one of the high holy days in the Jewish faith that is filled with hope. While Rosh Hashanah is a joyful celebration, it is also a deeply spiritual holiday filled with ritual and meaning. It marks the beginning of the “10 Days of Awe” where people reflect on their actions of the past year and seek forgiveness, culminating in “The Day of Atonement,” Yom Kippur.
The Rosh Hashanah festivities are usually accented in a few different ways:
- Symbolic foods that ask for sweetness in the year to come, like dipping apples into honey and eating challah bread made with honey and raisins.
- Eating “new” fruit (fruit just coming into season) such as the pomegranate, which reminds us to appreciate life and the abundance of the earth.
The Perfect Rosh Hashanah Table Decorations and Flowers
Another great way to highlight this special holiday of hope and sweet abundance? With a generous gift of Rosh Hashanah flowers!
A great flower choice for a stunning Rosh Hashanah table decoration is a display of creamy white flowers to symbolize the purity of the holiday and hope for a positive new year ahead - a symbolic “clean slate.”
Another wonderful option for Rosh Hashanah table decorations is a flower arrangement with a color palette that celebrates the harvest, incorporating warm autumn tones of red, orange, and gold with accents of berries and fruits.
