We have learned a lot here at just fine designs this month as Rosh Hashanah is approaching.
Rosh Hashanah or the Jewish new year begins on September 9th and goes through until the 11th of September.
During Rosh Hashanah it is traditional to eat lots of sweet food, or more properly, there is a custom to refrain from bitter, sour or tart foods.
This is to symbolize the wish for a sweet and pleasant year. What a lovely sentiment!
And of course a beautiful table laid with personal products is needed to feast on the sweet food.
An apple is one highly held Sweet New Year fruit as is Pomegrantes.
Now Pomegranates have been cultivated in Israel (and throughout the Middle East) for thousands of years, and they continue to grow there in abundance.
Pomegranates are a popular 'new fruit', eaten on the second night Rosh Hashanah, even though they were well-known throughout the Mediterranean region during Biblical times.
The pomegranate designs decorated columns in King Solomon's temple.
At Just Fine Designs this long lived, attractive, scarlett fruit is the backdrop for a Rosh Hashanah design on personal gifts.
The Pomegranate design is on New Year feast invitations as well as other custom and personalized products that are not just for Rosh Hashanah.
The color shape and overall botanical look of the fruit allow the pomegranate to be featured on
Home Décor, monogram pillows and personal gifts such as monogram coffee mugs, tea,kitchen towels and gorgeous bathroom products that make lovely personal gifts.
