Fresh Seder Plates for Spring

Fresh Seder Plates for Spring

Spring holidays give us rituals for cleaning, decorating, hosting, and eating. The Jewish holiday of Passover begins the evening of March 25, and it involves all four tasks in abundance: dinner table decor for this holiday has been under scrutiny since, well, time immemorial.

The seder plate, which is used as a centerpiece to present the symbolic elements of the meal service (called a seder), gets all the attention. We rounded up a group of modern seder plates three years ago--many of which are still available for purchase--but we thought it was time to refresh with a selection of new, simple seder plates that evoke spring.

1. Ceramic Passover Seder Plate from Etsy shop Boxandbowl - $90
2. Williams-Sonoma Pickard porcelain plate with silver or gold rim - $249
3. Bernardaud "Louvre Judaica" plate from Bloomingdale's - $237
4. Lladró porcelain limited edition seder plate - $975
5. Green Bisque ceramic plate by Kosoy and Bouchard - $375

I can't afford to invest in a new seder plate this year, so I have to decide between two I already own. Care to weigh in and tell me which one you think I should put on my table?

The first is a hand-painted wooden plate with six bowls from Israeli artist Yair Emanuel.

The second is a silver-plated and wooden plate--a classic design that your great grandparents might have used. A similar version is available through Amazon.
