Last week, in preparation for Goldie and Tuvia’s Sheva Brochos (one of seven wedding after-parties, each with seven blessings), I purchased a large box of hamentaschen (triangular Purim pastries) to add to the Viennese table. While I was setting up, Don mentioned that we should set up a to-go station similar to those that we had at our daughters weddings. He thought that we should set out the hamentaschen individually wrapped along with tea and coffee.
I thought that was a wonderful idea.
Except, the weather was unseasonably warm.
So, we set up a water bottle and hamentaschen to-go station with personalized labels for the hamentaschen and water bottles.
I covered an old desk with an elegant tablecloth and inserted a printed sign into a vintage frame that read:
something cold and something sweet
for the road ahead”
Our guests loved it. It really was simple to wow them.
And, we plan to do this again at our next home celebration.
Great idea, Don!
