Giving The Gift of Flowers During Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year celebration, is a time when gifts are often giving. For many, it’s the gift given to a hostess to say “thank you” for hosting the holiday festivities. For others, it is simply a gift given to acknowledge the importance of the holiday. Regardless, if you are a Jewish family or know someone who is Jewish, here’s what you need to know about gift giving this Rosh Hashanah.

Rosh Hashanah is a holiday that celebrates the creation of the first man and woman, Adam and Eve. It is the start of the Jewish religious calendar, and is seen by devout Jews as a chance to reflect on the past and look forward to the future.

Many Jews take this holiday quite seriously, marking it as a solemn occasion and surrounding themselves with friends and family. Flowers help make the home more festive, and they are a welcome gift if you have been invited to a Rosh Hashanah celebration. This year, Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown on

Floral Arrangements with Fall Colors

One option to consider when giving flowers for Rosh Hashanah is embracing the colors of fall. Rosh Hashanah almost always occurs right around the peak for fall foliage colors, and flowers that embrace this are a great option. Consider Sunny Spirals, with its brilliant oranges and yellows, as an option. Nothing says fall quite like a sunflower, so consider Lovely Lattice as an option as well.

Showing the New Year with Brilliant White

Another traditional option to consider for Rosh Hashanah is giving the gift of white flowers. White showcases all of the promise and potential of the coming year. Arrive in Style is a beautiful white and pink arrangement that would look great on the Rosh Hashanah table. The all-white Chic Sincerity is a bold, elegant option as well and ideal for a large celebration. Isle of White is another beautiful and all-white option.

Whether you stick with the traditional white or choose something a bit more bold and colorful, you can’t go wrong with flowers on Rosh Hashanah. Whether you are decorating your own space or giving a gift to someone who has invited you to celebrate with them, beautiful flowers are the ideal way to showcase your appreciation for all that Rosh Hashanah means.
