Blue and white Staffordshire pottery is as classic a look as you can get, but it doesn’t need to be stuffy or dated. I’ve written before about how to succeed with a blue and white table scheme, but this time my attention is turned to Spode Judaica.
Spode has an entire line of Judaica in their hallmark blue & white floral pattern. They have everything from a menorah (which is just stunning) to a mezuzah case and everything in between. There is not a clunker in the set…they are all really beautiful and reasonably priced for such timeless items. The pieces make excellent gifts for weddings or any time at all.
For Shabbat the three essential pieces of kiddush cup, challah plate and candlesticks are matched with basic white dinnerware and a rattan charger to make it fresh and summery (in winter accessorize with pewter). A navy napkin with a silver napkin ring accompany a unique cutlery pattern that you can get vintage or new as your budget dictates. And of course, classic white tapers for the Spode Sabbath Candlesticks complete the look.
