Aside from the cheesecake, Shavuot is all about flowers...we decorate our home and synagogue with flowers and greens because when the Jews stood at the foot of Mount Sinai (in awe, awaiting the granting of the Torah) it was carpeted with greens and sweet smelling flowers.
The best spot for flowers is on the table—perfect if you're hosting any of the meals for Shavuot. Here is a little inspiration for beautiful table settings that will make you look like a professional florist, even if you're not!
So easy...grab a handful of the same color tulips from the supermarket and pop them into clear glass containers. Don't mix them with any other flower or greens or you'll ruin this effect. Photo: left, right
Snip a few sprigs from your garden or a pot of flowers and slip onto a napkin.

Buying potted flowers for the deck or patio? They'll be perfect on the holiday table.
Spring is the perfect season to celebrate Shavuot with flowers!
