One of the most highly anticipated autumn festivities is Rosh Hashanah, or the Jewish New Year, starting at sundown on September 25 and continuing through nightfall on September 27. Whether you are a Jew or blessed to have been invited by one of your friends to participate in the celebration, this blog is for you.
Fresh floral arrangements are pivotal as traditional gifts and decorations for ushering in a brand new year and looking forward to a clean slate. Read on to get tips on selecting the best Rosh Hashanah flowers.
Pretty and Appropriate Flowers for Rosh Hashanah
Sympathy flowers are deemed inappropriate in Jewish culture because blooms are hugely regarded as symbols of happiness and celebrations. Case in point: the Jewish New Year. Here's how to use flowers to wish friends and family a "Shanah tovah u'metuka" (a good and sweet New Year).
White Floral Arrangements

Rosh Hashanah is a time to seek repentance for the shortcomings one's done and forgive people who've hurt you in the past year. Pure white orchids and floral arrangements are popular choices because they represent purity, honesty, positivity, and new beginnings.
It explains why white flowers are a staple in most Jewish homes from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur, the entirety of the "Ten Days of Repentance," more commonly known as the High Holy Holidays.
Peruvian lilies, roses, tulips, and other milky white blooms make perfect candidates but opt for a white phalaenopsis orchid arrangement if you want something that'll last longer.
Seasonal Autumn Flowers
Since it takes place during the fall season, it only makes sense to have the finest autumn bouquets as Rosh Hashanah flowers complement Cornucopia baskets filled with fruits, like pomegranates, grapes, apples, and other fall harvest crops on the table. In rich autumn colors, dahlias, proteas, ranunculus, and vanda orchids will make a mesmerizing Rosh Hashanah floral centerpiece.
