We have been celebrating Rosh HaShanah, the Jewish New Year last night and today. Since I was celebrating my new year and new decade last week, I almost forgot to get ready for the holiday (which is bad because 16 people were coming to dinner).I scrambled Sunday morning and pulled together a rather nice tablescape and yummy dinner, in my humble opinion. I would normally buy flowers and agonize over arranging them. With the "short-notice" though I was left to use what I had. Fortunately, I had been sent some lovely lilies for my birthday that had a little life left in them by Sunday! I also had a bag of apples, which are a symbolic food for Rosh HaShanah in hopes that your new year should be as sweet as apples dipped in honey. Not bad for 5 day old flowers and five minutes!
It almost makes me wonder why I fret over these details all the other times when I plan in advance. almost! Whether you are celebrating a holiday or just that it is Monday--Celebrate Everything!
