Miniature Tree Place Setting

The Jewish holiday of Tu B'Shevat is coming up in a few weeks. (February 8). One way to celebrate this holiday is to sit down to a seder (more on that to come).  Since Tu B' Shevat is the "birthday" for trees in Israel, I decided to make these mini tree placesettings for each one of my guests.

I found these mini clay flower pots at Michael's, along with the moss and the dried Caspia Basil which looks just like a small tree when you cut the stems.
The pencil's in the shot to give you an idea how small these flower pots really are. After cutting off small "trees" from the bunch of dried basil, I inserted small chunks of floral oasis into the clay pots, then stuck the branches in. The oasis is topped with moss for a more finished look.
Since Tu B'Shevat celebrates the of the gift of trees, we enjoy a festive meal which includes fruits from various trees. Next week I'll post the beautiful Seder table to help inspire those who might wish to celebrate Tu B' Shevat.
