For my final episode of my Summer Shabbat series I’m sharing my best advice for hosting an elegant formal Shabbat dinner. I walk you through my (easy!) Shabbat dinner menu, and show you some tips and tricks for creating an atmosphere to welcome guests into your home. The Jewish value of hachnasat orchim (welcoming guests) is a beautiful tradition and mitzvah that is especially meaningful on Shabbat. Thank you SO much to Annieglass for letting me showcase some of their gorgeous servingware in my home for this video.

I had never seen cookies like this before until they magically popped up on my Pinterest feed and my first thought was how perfect they are for Shabbat. Shabbat is the day of rest that comes after the creation of the natural world, so to me incorporating the most beautiful elements of nature into the enjoyment of Shabbat is meaningful.
