Shavuot has so many different themes you can focus on for your celebration. One of those is the concept of the Festival of First Fruits. Although traditionally this was reserved exclusively for the first fruits of the seven species of Israel, in modern times this has become more widely associated with any fruit. We are accustomed to thinking about fruits atop cheesecake and blintzes, but you can also add fruits to your cocktails and even meld them into your ice cubes as shown below. In addition to your fruit filled menu, red stripes and ticking are the perfect pattern accompaniment on a pristine white background. Buy them for Shavuot and use them again for Independence Day! Just in case you didn’t know, pink is the hot trend in tableware this year so if you have always wanted a set, there is no better time to stock up. Here are some fruit related fun recipes with matching tableware to get you in the Shavuot mood.
