A Handmade Seder - Updated

In my home, the Passover Seder is a mix of old and new, vintage and handmade treasures used to help tell the story of freedom. The Haggadah we use was used at my parent's table, the Cup of Elijah is a magnificent cobalt blue treasure that was used at my grandparents' home. Each part, the matzoh cover, the Seder plate, the table clothes, have history, so setting up for a Seder in my home is easy, almost like bringing in family I haven't seen in a while. I get a bit thrown off guard when an invitation comes my way for a Seder at someone else's home. What do I bring? I can't go empty handed. Food? Like what? Maybe something very special...something handmade might be in order. 


Passover Apron - I love the play on words



This plate is so beautiful it might be hard to get it out of my house




Afikoman Bag by Renee's Needle I love this fabric....Renee is very talented with a needle.....hmm






This blue washing cup from Agru is wonderful....and I remember my dad using a bowl at the table....definitely could be stepped up a bit..

Blue Washing Cup with Base




This vase from Studio Armadillo could be used to pour salt water. So pretty. 
Passover gift Geometric vase Light blue ceramic Origami inspired Gift idea For her & for him Contemporary style Home decor








This wine cozy from Blazing Needles could do that, keep the wine cozy...We'll be drinking a bit of wine during the Seder....4 cups each. (I'll need to wear flats...)
L'Chaim Wine Cozy - to life





These wine glass charms from Down To Earth Creations are wonderful....and a good idea, after all 4 cups each...Not that I'd lose track of my glass...

Maybe a kippah or 2 from Maybe Sew. Joanne makes team kippot...wonder if she can make some Gator kippot...Go Gators!!


NFL Jacksonville Jaguars Kippah or Yarmulke



So, what do you think? Not sure....Me neither. Lots of good choices, though, all befitting a friend's home. I'd better decide soon...Passover is approaching quick...April 14th.
