A new year is coming for people of the Jewish faith! Rosh Hashanah is a time for reflection and renovation. It is also the perfect excuse to bring the family together, eat, pray, and prepare for what’s to come.
If you are hosting Rosh Hashanah this year, table design shouldn’t be overlooked. When your guests enter your home, they will get to experience the ambiance that you’ve created especially for them. Having a beautifully set table will not only set the tone, but more importantly, it influences the appearance of all the food you’ll be serving.

Apples in different presentations:
It is common to eat apples on Rosh Hashanah as a symbolic representation of a good and sweet year. Generally, people make the ha’eitz blessing before eating them, so it is a great idea to have a little basket or platter on the table with pre-washed red apples.
But what about a twist? If you want to keep your guests hungry and entertained, you can put out an apple, honey & cheese board. Slice apples of different colors, pick some salty crackers, add a smooth brie cheese and decorate with pomegranate seeds.
Candles and flowers on the table:
You don’t need to expend too much to have a beautiful Rosh Hashanah celebration. Whether you are hosting a large meal or keeping it small and intimate, candles and flowers can bring warmth and transform any room.
Don’t overcomplicate! You can gather small garden bouquets in a palette of pink or white to combine with the natural reds of apples and pomegranates. And for a little flair, add a few little candles throughout the table.
Bring on the color for Rosh Hashanah:
As we said before, red and white are traditional colors for Rosh Hashanah, white being associated with purity and the fresh start of the new year. But that doesn’t mean you can’t add your own spin to the celebration.
If you are looking for colors to match, try different tones of brown, gold, and orange. They will not only look elegant and luxurious on the table but combine with the natural environment outside.
These colors are also associated with coziness and comfort. Greens, especially in florals, can be a bright accent color that hints at energy and possibility.
