Next week brings many families and friends together. My family celebrates Passover, where we retell the Exodus story with blessings songs and specially-prepared food. When we were kids, my parents invited many friends and relatives to join us for the seder. My chief responsibility was creating placecards – which I took very seriously.
I painted the three pots in different blue & white combinations, and added pictures and text which I had printed out on clear sticker paper. After coating each pot with decoupage, I wrapped blue and white baker’s twine around the pots.
A green herb (such as parsley or cilantro) is used on the Passover table to symbolize spring. So I planted herbs in each pot. I’m going to use the largest pot as a centerpiece, so I made a label that reads “Kosher for Passover”.
I decided the smallest pot was just too tiny to hold a plant, so I used the medium sized pots for the place markers. These festive pots and plant markers will add a nice touch our seder table. [Reprinted from Altered Artworks Blog]
