My Wardrobe Today – Monday Night and Passover Seder

Last night, my sister hosted a Passover Seder. The day was very warm, and I knew it would be warm in my sister's house with all the guests, so I did a quick change before heading over.

Black ponte dress – Ann Taylor (at least three years old – found in the attic this weekend)
Scarf – Ann Taylor
Booties – Miss Sixty “Jaiden”
Silver cuff

The weather was perfect so we spent our time before sundown outside on the deck, and then enjoyed the meal with the windows open. A few pictures from the evening (my camera was dead so these are some pictures I snagged from my mom's Snapfish album):

My sister's house, ready for the Seder. She had another table perpendicular to this one, same pretty tablecloth.  You can see the haroset ready to be served!

My lovely mom – I made her pose like I do for the blog.  You can see where I get my love for bright colors and great accessories!

A fun beer for Passover…

My sister made the most amazing matzo ball soup – in fact the whole meal was amazing. The brisket was divine (and fabulous for my lunchtime sandwich today!)

Our friend brought props to represent the ten plagues – he passed out things like little wind-up frogs, dry rice to represent lice, ping pong balls for boils, and had his daughter (seen above playing with Emerson) run around and stamp each of our hands with a cow stamp to represent murrain (cow plague).

It was by far the most entertaining Seder I have ever attended.  The group was a great combination – some of our cousins, my mom and her boyfriend, and several friends.  Emerson and my husband had to leave before the meal because Emerson was very tired and it was past her bedtime.  However, I was sure to bring home a big doggy bag so they can enjoy all the deliciousness today.

It was a great time, so nice to share the event with family and friends, and as always my sister was the hostess with the mostess!

    Thanks for taking pictures last night! I was much too busy in the kitchen to remember to take pictures after the tables were set.

    He’brew is kosher, but I don’t believe it’s kosher for Passover. But like my sister said, this was a very relaxed seder. And while we had kosher wine as well as regular, only Elijah drank the Mogen David.

    Your family is lovely. Glad to hear you all got together for these religious traditions. 🙂

    Have to admit, it wasn’t the most Kosher Passover. This was my husband’s beer who isn’t Jewish. I think my Jewish friends and family stuck to wine 🙂

    Wait. Is He’Brew Kosher for Passover?

    I mean, I know there are a few of those rare KP beers floating around out there (I’ve heard they are all pretty awful), but I thought all the He’Brew beers were made with grain? Not that it’s a big deal to give up beer for Pesach, but I’m legitimately curious if someone is actually making a decent Passover-approved beer.

    That looks like so much fun! And I love that dress–It looks like it has a great neckline.
