Rosh Hashanah, the first of the High Holy Days, is a traditional 2-day Jewish holiday celebrated in early autumn. Families prepare a celebratory feast with their loved ones beginning on the first day of Tishrei, a day that is believed to be the anniversary of Adam and Eve and their first actions toward the realization of humanity’s role in God’s world. Being a blessed time for the Jewish people, it is considered an honor to be included in these festivities and the bringing of a gift is a kindness to the host. Any offerings are always appreciated, but flowers are a perfect gift. White flowers are an ideal color choice as an innocence of the New Year, or a blank canvas ready to be painted with the memories of your life to come.
It’s becoming more acceptable to bring autumn colors into your white flowers, considering the season it falls on, and this brings all the beauty and warmth to the celebration. Whether it be a lovely arrangement or a centerpiece for the table, the gift of flowers will show your gratitude for being invited to join families during this special holiday.
