Chag Sameach! Bruchim Ha’Baim! I am so excited to invite you into our sukkah!
The frame, cloth walls and half the s’chach are prefab, purchased several years ago in Israel. The rest of our sukkah is homemade (or homegrown, in the case of the branches) with a ton of love. At first, I wanted to try decorating around a design theme. But then I realized that I’m just not that coordinated, and so I went with the “Anything Goes!” theme.
We’ve got a little Mother Earth, including the cut-down-from-our-backyard-earlier-today s’chach and my five year old’s choice of pine cones for our table top “vignette”.
We’ve got a little Zionism, with our Israeli flags and Bruchim Ha’Baim (Welcome) banner, which I don’t think you can see in the pictures, unfortunately.
And, of course, we’ve got plenty of child-created art, including the painted-on sukkah walls, the laminated art projects from last year, and the predictable-but-ever popular paper chains.
I’m also really loving our sukkah lighting, all of which was purchased at Target on clearance, and gives everything a nice, romantic glow. (The glow was totally washed out by the flash, I’ve now realized. So just imagine it all glowy, please!)
Well, that’s it — our sweet and simple sukkah, in which I’m looking forward to sharing many wonderful meals and delightful conversations with family and friends over the next nine days.
And now, without further adieu, I can’t wait to see your sukkot!!! If you have a blog, please link up to a post about your sukkah. Be sure to include the link to the specific post, and not your blog’s general URL. If you don’t have a blog, you are still more than welcome to join the fun. Please just leave a comment with a link to where we can go to see your picture(s), such as Flickr or photobucket.
Thank you SO MUCH for joining me! And chag sameach!
