The fall Jewish holidays are just around the corner: Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and my personal favorite, Sukkot.
Sukkot (aka Succos) is a Jewish holiday celebrated on the 15th day of the month of Tishrei (this year on 10/12-10/19/11). It lasts for seven days and is immediately followed by another holiday known as Shemini Atzeret. The Hebrew word "sukkot" is the plural of "sukkah," which means "booth" or "tabernacle." The sukkah is intended as a reminder of the type of temporary, fragile dwellings in which the Jews dwelt during their forty years of wandering in the desert after the exodus from Egypt. Throughout the holiday of Sukkot, the sukkah becomes the primary living area of one's home. Most celebrants invite lots of guests for Sukkot meals, which are eaten inside the sukkah; many sleep there as well.
In modern times, some Sukkot celebrants will use their finest china and crystal for the festive meals inside the Sukkah, but many of us (myself included) would rather not risk breaking our best tableware in transporting it outside, but would still love to set out a beautiful, festive holiday table for our many guests. Party City has some absolutely beautiful patterns in their paper and plasticware goods that allow you to put out a stunning holiday table without risking shattered china or glass. (And best of all, you can just toss or recycle everything after the meal is done!)
