ELEGANT SIMPLICITY: A Sukkah Oasis

Updated: Sep 12, 2023



As the calendar flips to September, the air becomes crisper, and the anticipation of Sukkot fills our hearts. This month, we invite you to step into our sukkah, a space that blends the timeless traditions of the holiday with modern elegance and practicality. Join us as we unveil the beauty and functionality of our carefully curated sukkah, designed to create lasting memories with family and friends.

The Setting: Our sukkah is a testament to the harmony of classical and contemporary elements. The foundation is set with an expansive black eight-person weather-resistant table, accompanied by a khaki-colored, waterproof, and stain-resistant tablecloth that not only adds a touch of sophistication but also ensures easy cleanup, allowing us to focus on the joy of the holiday. The table and chairs provide ample seating for guests to gather, dine, and celebrate together.

At the heart of it all, an exquisite tablescape draws the eye—a striking flower arrangement in a sleek black base courtesy of @daphnes_petals. The arrangement, a captivating blend of flowers serves as a vibrant centerpiece, symbolizing the harvest and the beauty of nature.

Place Settings: Each place setting is a work of art in itself. A black square charger provides the canvas for a Macchiato-colored circle plate, evoking a sense of earthy warmth and sophistication. A caramel-colored napkin, elegantly knotted, adds a touch of rustic charm, and its soft texture contrasts beautifully with the sleek dinnerware.

The silverware, with its novel black design, serves as both a functional utensil and a conversation piece. The matte black finish complements the overall aesthetic, giving a modern twist to the table. And for sipping and toasting, we've chosen Crystal Clear Tall cups for water and a set of Diamond Shaped Stemless Wine Glasses, adding a touch of elegance to every sip of wine, a symbol of joy and celebration. (all place settings are disposable)

Sukkah Details: Against one wall, you'll find a concrete console table, not only serving as a sturdy surface but also providing a place for the cherished candle lighting ceremony. This table, safe for outdoor use, is both practical and symbolic—a bridge between the indoor and outdoor worlds during this special time. Adorning it are a set of two Taper Metal Candlestick Holders in a striking black hue. These candle holders elevate the ceremony, casting a warm and inviting glow over the sukkah.

To complete the ambiance, a vinyl sukkah decoration from the @waterdalecollection features a picturesque image of the Kosel, connecting us to the heart of tradition. This decoration serves as a visual anchor, reminding us of our heritage and the importance of unity during this time.

Elegant Lighting: As the sun sets and the sukkah comes alive with the glow of tradition and togetherness, we've added a modern touch to our lighting. Suspended from the sukkah's roof are modern round lights with black knots, each a Rechargeable LED Hanging Lamp. These hanging lamps provide a soft and ambient light, creating an inviting atmosphere for evening gatherings and celebrations. The black knots add a unique touch of style and complement the overall aesthetic of our sukkah. You can use as many of these hanging lamps as needed in your space, allowing you to customize the lighting to your liking.

A Cozy Corner: In a cozy corner of our sukkah, we've created a serene seating area. A sumptuous outdoor sofa in a warm basket terra color beckons guests to relax and unwind. This comfortable sofa, designed for outdoor use, features deep cushions and wide armrests, ensuring that guests can lounge in comfort for hours.

Black throw pillows, elegantly stitched in ivory, provide the perfect contrast and a pop of elegance. The ivory stitching complements the khaki tablecloth and the overall color scheme of the sukkah. The pillows not only enhance the comfort of the seating but also add a touch of style.

Underfoot, a cream outdoor rug ties the space together, offering comfort and style. The rug's neutral color enhances the overall aesthetic and provides a soft surface for guests to walk on. Its durability ensures that it can withstand the rigors of outdoor use while maintaining its elegance.

Completing the scene is a black Concrete Accent Table, a versatile addition to this inviting oasis. This table is not only functional but also adds a touch of modernity to the space. It provides a convenient surface for guests to place drinks, snacks, or decorative items, enhancing the overall functionality of the seating area.
