Sukkah Inspiration

Hope you had a great Rosh Hashanah!  Now it's on to the next holiday—Yom Kippur which begins Tuesday evening. And, a week after Yom Kippur comes Sukkot—probably my favorite Jewish holiday. 

The sukkahs below were created
quite a few years ago for my first book; Jewish Holiday Style but are just as inspirational today for designing a sukkah.
We shelped this sukkah over to the Connecticut shoreline and shot it on a private beachfront overlooking the Long Island Sound. Don't have beachfront property? No problem—you can create a beach-y sukkah by using white nylon for the walls, pots of grasses and lots of blues on your table setting.
Hurricane glasses protect candles from the wind and blue glassware adds to the beach theme.

Or, maybe you're more of a urbanite...

This industrial, corrugated sukkah decked out with tiny white lights and Park Avenue-like topiaries will transport you to the city even if your sukkah is in a suburban back-yard.

What will inspire your sukkah this year?
