Passover is almost here. In the midst of the cleaning and cooking, we received all our decor items. If you are looking for affordable and budget-friendly decor ideas for Passover and Unleavened Bread, I hope you get some ideas from this post.
I love decorating and making my home look nice while still staying on budget and keeping the focus on the reason for celebrating – honoring the Lord.
We will be spending a lot of time at the table over the next 8 days, so let’s make it cute!
I created a similar banner for Yom Teruah in a previous decor ideas blog post – I’ll link it here. In the past, I hand drew the letters on cardstock, then filled it in with a sharpie marker.
This year, thanks to my sister, we innovated. I drew the letters on my Ipad and then printed them out. So much better! Then I cut out a triangle from the bottom to create that banner shape.
Then all you have to do is make holes with a hole puncher and hang it up. It’s so easy and it looks nice. You could even draw leaves or flowers on it as well.
If you want to create the same sign as me, you can download my free PDF and print out the letters yourself. Here is the link!
What you will need:
- 8 pieces of cardstock 8.5 x 11 inches (110lb)
- Hole puncher
I printed off my menu for Passover/ Unleavened Bread on cardstock, so everyone would know what to expect. It’s just a general overview and we’ll probably add to it, but I think it’s helpful to have. You can print out ours if you like!
If you have the time, consider printing out your menu for your family or your guests.
What you will need:
- Some sort of drawing or graphics software – I used the Procreate app on my Ipad but Canva works great too!
- Cardstock or sturdy paper
Eucalyptus and/or Flowers
For the actual tablescape. I love fresh and fake eucalyptus, and I always incorporate it into my tablescapes. You can get fake eucalyptus from Walmart or Amazon for $10. This year we will be using fresh white and yellow flowers from the grocery store too!
My sister purchased both the napkins and the napkin rings from Aliexpress a few weeks ago. She loves to buy things from there because everything is very affordable. The only downside is that the items ship from overseas so it can take 1 – 2 months before you receive your packages. Make sure you plan in advance!
Other options for napkins or linens would be West Elm or Marshalls.
We found the plates from our local Goodwill and the bowls were from Marshalls. The plates were under $1 each, and the whole set was under $20. If you are looking for budget-friendly dishware, check out your local Goodwill or thrift stores first, because you are bound to find something that would work for the feast days.
Shabbat candle set and candles
Funny enough, for a while, we celebrated both Christmas/Easter and the High Holidays. One year for Christmas, my older sister got me this Shabbat candle set. Ever since then, we have used it for Sabbath every week and it’s perfect to use for the High holidays as well. She even got one for our grandmother as a present, and she loves it too! We use the Yehuda Shabbat candles, it fits perfectly and they last for a few hours.
White pillar candles are nice to burn in addition to the Shabbat candles, but they can also be used as decor. You can find them at Walmart or Amazon for around $10.
I purchased this vintage menorah on Etsy a few years ago and it makes a lovely decor piece. It can screw apart, but it’s a little crooked so we mostly use it as decor. The brass looks nice with the eucalyptus, candles, and napkins.
