You can create a grand tablescape like this one in no time…even on a budget!
Shavuos is all about the flowers and the fresh colors. Filling the house with beautiful blooms brings joy to anyone, and on this specific Yom Tov, it’s an extra special minhag as well. We mimic Har Sinai, and how Hashem made it beautiful in honor of matan Torah.
Creating the most amazing Shavous floral tablescape doesn’t have to break the bank. Would you believe it if we told these flowers cost us only 75 dollars? Yes, it’s true!
The trick on this table is the amount of flowers. They also need to be clustered together. It’s simple, especially because you don’t need to arrange the flowers; simply dump them into vases.
Shown here are 15 bouquets of spray roses.
It doesn’t necessarily matter what type of flower you are using, as long as they are colorful. Look at the selection by your florist, and check out the cheap flowers you might have overlooked. Then, ask the florist to bring them in for you, lots of them. Most florists will work with you on pricing when ordering large quantities. We paid $5 a bunch for these spray roses.
While the vase we used is no longer available (frown), you can get similar vases at the dollar store or spray paint glass vases like these or these in the color of your choice (think gold or white). If you want something decorative and ready to go, look for a vase with straight sides (so the vases can be placed somewhat closely together) like this.
Vases which have wide bottoms and narrow necks won’t work well for this type of tablescape.
