Garden jewish center,diy wooden round table,big house sheds 6x4,make a shed from fence panels - Tips For You

Like Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum fur Gegenwart (Museum of Contemporary Art), I visited the Jewish Museum Berlin (Judisches Museum Berlin) with my first Museum Pass in 2010 and was determined to go back during my Berlin Museum Marathon in February this year. The Museum is housed in a combination of the Collegienhaus (Old Building), the former Superior Court of Justice for the Kurmark Brandenburg, and the striking and more instantly recognisable zinc facade of the Libeskind Building. The new building, opened in 2001, is accessible only through a staircase from the Old Building, which it zig-zags away from and the walls are cut through by the irregular shapes of the windows and a series of voids. The installation Shalekhet (Fallen Leaves) by Israeli artist Menashe Kadishnman consists of more than 10,000 iron faces, representing the innocent victims of war and violence, that cover the floor of the Memory Void. The Axis of Continuity leads to a staircase and the exhibition space above, where the permanent exhibits present two millennia of German Jewish History. For more information about the Jewish Museum Berlin (Judisches Museum Berlin), including opening hours and prices see their website.
The Planning Process… I have 2 sisters and a brother, all of whom are married, so my mum and dad are old hands at weddings! As we had friends coming from all across the UK (and a few from farther afield), we wanted to make sure that the whole weekend was fun for everyone.
Budget… We didn’t have a budget and differed hugely on what we thought a wedding should cost (I thought 15k, Juls thought 50k). The Venue… I fell in love with Narborough Hall as soon as I saw it… somewhere where we could feel at home, and relaxed.
Joanne, the owner, was amazing at understanding my vision, and has an incredibly calming presence, and Georgie, her events coordinator followed in the same happy-go-lucky, yet efficient manner.
The Dress + Accessories… My dress was by Donna Lee, strapless, with a vintage looking diamante and seed pearl application under the bust, and lace overlay, fading off towards the bottom.
Groom’s Attire… We both work in fashion, and Juls is renowned amongst his group of friends and family as dressing well, and sometimes a bit ‘differently’…so all eyes were on him for what he would be wearing at the wedding, probably more than my dress! The Readings + Music… It was a traditional Jewish ceremony, which is pretty short and no readings.
The flower girls had soft vintage pink and sparkle dresses from Monsoon, and my little toddler niece Emilia had the cutest little bolero on over the top with almost feather like fabric trims on the shoulder. The Cake… We had a 4 tier cake in different flavours, decorated with sugar paste flowers to match the colour scheme of blues, soft vintage pink and light greens. Your Photographer… The wonderful Katherine Ashdown :-) I can’t believe she managed to stay calm, even when half of the party refused to come outside when it looked like it might rain and their hair might get ruined (even though it didn’t!, and I, the bride, was stood there waiting for them!) The photos are amazing, and every morning I wake up and scroll through them on my phone before I do anything else…I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of looking at them! The Details + Decor… The main details were the measuring tape ribbon and buttons, which I carried through in heart shapes made out of mother of pearl buttons.
The table numbers were bought online, and I backed each one with the same fabric I used for the page’s bow ties…so each table number was different. The Honeymoon… We didn’t have a lot of time to spare, as our business is relatively new and working in fashion, early July is the busiest selling period for us.
Memorable Moments… Watching Juls and his stags all walking across the grounds from Cliff Barns to Narborough Hall, without them spotting me with butterflies the closer they got! Advice for Other Couples… It is your big day, but remember to listen to everyone’s point of view.
Take time to meet the suppliers you are using, chat, see if you can get on and understand each other, and remember that they have probably done this a lot more than you, so sometimes there is a point where it is best that you take a step back and let them do it.
The Congregation Kol Am of Freehold, NJ, kept wracking their brain on new ways to assist local food pantries and soup kitchens, when they came up with the idea of a community garden project. Through the generosity of congregants Mark and Penny Estomin, who own Calgo Gardens, they were able to obtain a 7-acre nursery and gift center on Adelphia Road, according to Tri Town News.
The synagogue hopes to gather up additional donations and volunteers, including children from the congregation. Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the founding of B'nai B'rith in Cleveland January 14, 1853.The Independent Order of B'nai B'rith or "Sons of the Covenant" is the oldest continually-operating Jewish service organization in the world.
What’s more the couple are now repurposing the chuppah poles as a gazebo in their garden and growing flowers up it in time for summer.
What makes this wedding all the more special is that both families had known each other long before Claudia and Edward had ever got together. During the ceremony our Rabbi asked us to turn around to look at all our family and friends. There are lots more treats, surprises, advice, tips and just a wonderful account of a glorious day so if you can get five minutes with a cuppa to sit down and read Claudia’s wonderful words, as well as look at the stunning photography from Ria Mishaal, I promise you will get so much out of this wedding story. Speaking of which, you’ll see Alex holding an umbrella over Claudia in one or two of the images.
We chose blue and white and wanted an oriental ceramics pattern to run through the styling. Having Alex on board gave us the chance to have all the creative input and make all the decisions but in the knowledge that it was all going to come together and she thought of lots of little things we would never have considered.
I knew I wanted something different and had an idea that a dress with blue flowers would be unique. I had a second dress from Self Portrait – I love dancing and I worried that a big dress would hold me back. Ed had bought me some stunning earrings for my birthday which were so beautiful I saved them for the wedding day. My wedding ring was made bespoke by Alex Monroe with tiny diamonds and gold leaves that matched the delicate leaves on my vintage engagement ring perfectly. My dress was so embelllished that I decided against any hair accessories and went for the simplest veil I could find. For the evening I had an amazing huge crystal necklace (I’m known for my love of statement jewellery!) which I put on with my second dress.
He had bought watches for his groomsmen and they all had matching blue and white striped straps.
My bridesmaids wore a dress from ASOS – I loved it, ordered 16 of them in varying sizes and lengths and the girls all came over for an evening and everyone managed to fit into one! Rose my goddaughter wore a dress from Monsoon and I made her a flower crown from fake flowers. Our ketubah was expensive but I absolutely fell in love with it and had it made in the USA. One of my best friends is very creative and helped all my hens decorate fabric stars of David on my hen weekend. During the ceremony Rabbi David asked us to turn around to look at all our family and friends. We walked down the aisle to L’cha Dodi but sung to the tune of All of Me by John Legend. Liz from Blue Sky Flowers did all our flowers – she is a genius, amazing fun and huge talent.
I wanted simple white roses which were lovely, my bridesmaids had beautiful corsages and my flower girl, my goddaughter Rose had a flower wand which went down a treat! In the last few weeks I worried that everything was a bit too blue and white so we decided to introduce some splashes of pink which I think brightened up the day. With 225 guests I wanted people to have a fun way of seeing which table they were sat on without having to queue for ages to get to the table plan. I made little his and hers monkeys to top our wedding cake – Ed is a huge fan of all monkeys (he’d say simians!) and the first stop on our honeymoon was the orang utans in Borneo! We had a delicious starter of beetroot carpaccio with mozzarella and a shot of minted pea soup.
Soul Fiesta had played at a great friend’s wedding and we remembered how talented they were. They sang all the hora music live, did a brilliant female Otis cover and had the dancefloor filled all night with Motown and funk numbers. I made the table plan from unused invitations and hung them in a huge gold frame which looked lovely and we named all the tables after Michelin starred chefs as we’re both massive foodies!
I don't know what happened exactly, but along with the intense summer heat I suddenly took a renewed interest in my container garden, which is a good thing, since all my plants which have been quite forgiving up until now, certainly need my care now! My renewed interest happened just when a neighbor started asking for some plant advice, and we also made a trip together to a local nursery. A bought a Scheflerra to fill an empty corner — a plant that I highly recommend for novice container gardeners. That's all for now, I do highly recommend bringing some plants into your life, they bring so much joy. They chose to marry at Narborough Hall and Gardens, Norfolk with a Jewish ceremony and pretty marquee reception.


There were beautiful blooms, a super stylish couple and the cutest page boys and flowergirls.
Christmas Eve 2011, we drove to Nottingham to spend the Christmas period with my big sister and my 2 nephews.
Pink, heart shape rockets…for my nephews?!”)…then he turned round, my brother in law lit a big ‘MARRY ME?’ firework at the end of the garden, and Juls proposed.
Juls and his parents are big socialites and like a lot of p-zazz, me and my family are more low key (I hate being centre of attention), so it did take a lot of to-ing and fro-ing about the way we would all feel happy with the wedding day. We originally wanted to get married in Ibiza, so when we looked at venues and ideas in the UK, the criteria were: Near to family, in the English Countryside, and near to the seaside. Juls on the other hand is an only child, and an only Jewish child at that, so his parents were really happy and excited to take part in planning the wedding.
I would have liked 50 people and a quiet ceremony, Juls would have liked 300 people and a lavish banquet and party….. We were originally going to get married in Ibiza, but my family are farmers, so they couldn’t be away from the crops and the animals for any long amount of time, not to mention that my grandad wouldn’t be able to travel that far.. The fact that the flowers could all be sourced from Narborough’s own gardens also made it feel very natural and not ‘plastic’ or put on. In the end he went with a light blue blazer from Mr Start in London, dark blue slim fit tailored trousers, and a white shirt, with navy bow tie and navy polka dot handkerchief in his top pocket.
We did however have a cantor (Singer), who sang traditional Jewish hymns and blessings, before we exchanged rings, Juls stamped on a glass, and everyone shouted Mazeltov!.
It all felt perfectly natural, and blended in with the beautiful grounds and colours of the wedding perfectly. They were made of Pinks (My nan used to grow them), Lavender (a theme throughout the wedding) and wheat (my dad is a wheat farmer). Each table setting had a menu and ‘guide’ to the ceremony and traditions so that everyone felt included. So we went to Ibiza, totally hid away from everything at the Hacienda Na Xamena Hotel and relaxed…..and giggled and reminisced for 4 days in luxury! This occurs immediately before the wedding ceremony and is the first time the groom sees the bride.
Our best man is Juls’ childhood friend, and they made a promise when at school that they would be each other’s best men. This is a group of 7 prayers recited during the ceremony and then by our friends after the meal. Our friends came from London, just for the night, and we asked one of them to bring his guitar because he’s a bit of an entertainer. It doesn’t mean you have to follow it, but it is a big and important day for more than just you..
If you’re both there and everyone who really, really means the most to you in the world is there, then that is all you need.
These very values are what motivated the synagogue to create a garden which would grow a variety of vegetables and herbs. Despite the cold weather months away, they are already planning a winter planting in the garden ahead of schedule. Seven slender marble columns, representing the Seven Pillars of Wisdom, support the fountain bowl.
Unfortunately, the Hebrew Garden was vandalized in the 1960's and 1970's and 23 plaques were stolen. Oh, and as an aside, Claudia has a twin brother and identical twin sisters – how extraordinary is that?!) Claudia told me.
We hid our relationship from our mothers for the first few weeks because we thought they’d start planning our wedding after the first date!
He proposed in our favourite place in Norfolk just days before I left the country to work in Zanzibar. We knew we wanted an English country garden and a marquee company suggested this private venue to us – we were their third ever public wedding. We got some of the way through planning before realising that we’d need someone to co-ordinate the day as we were bringing all the suppliers in ourselves.
We also had jager bombs on the drinks menu but somehow managed to forget to buy Jagermeister so she did a last minute run the morning of the wedding which I didn’t know about until the next day! Claire Nicole did the hair and make-up for my best friend and bridesmaid at her wedding a month earlier and we both booked her together.
I was right – so after our first dance I slipped into the catering area of the marquee and did a quick change and then didn’t leave the dancefloor all night! Ed’s parents have always called him Bear so I had some polar bear silver cuff links made for him by Tomfoolery. It worked out perfectly that half of them chose pale blue and half dark blue which also gave my identical twin sisters a chance not to look identical on the day.
My little cousins Leo and Finlay wore pageboy outfits from Next and mini versions of the grooms party bow ties which came from Mrs Bow Tie. When it arrived it was worth every penny and our rabbi said it was so beautiful he almost didn’t want to sign it in case he ruined it!
Ed’s dad cut branches off a tree in his garden in Norfolk where we got engaged and together with my Dad, built the chuppah in our back garden!
We chose the music very carefully and my brother sang whilst I walked down the aisle and during the ceremony.
David read them in Hebrew and then our parents, sisters, aunts, uncles and cousins came and read the translations as well as giving us their own blessings.
Phil was also our MC and introduced each of the speeches with a few funny lines and a carefully selected theme song for each of us – he’d co-ordinated with the band and it was the perfect warm up. She understands what we wanted from the first meeting and ran with my crazy idea to have hanging flowers along the length of the marquee. The tables had a mixture of tall and short arrangements but with a country garden feeling and simple blue and white or clear glass vases. We’d been living on different continents for almost a year so when I got home, Ed took me away to the Cotswolds for the weekend. We ordered 225 different flavour fortune cookies (salted caramel and banana were out of this world) and I hand wrote stickers to go on each one with the guest’s name and their table name.
She was incredible – she went out and bought the biggest cake tins she could find and spent weeks practising and timing how long different size sponges need to cook.
We’d had a disappointment with another caterer who we thought would be fab but the tasting was just a huge let down both on taste and presentation.
The main course was pink roast lamb or sea trout with roasted sweet potatoes and delicious Ottolenghi style salads, and we had mini dessert buffets of every table. My Dad is an enormous music fan and we took him to see them play live at the Dover St Jazz club.
We made little table name signs with details about the chef such as the name of their restaurant, signature dish etc. And I must say, I'm in love with my container garden again, and so happy to step outside in the cool morning or evening air to care for all of my green friends who bring joy to all that pass by. I blew most of my budget on a gorgeous new pot for a small indoor tree, but managed to also buy a few new things. While a great drought resistant plant for the ground, Lantana does well in my window box type planters when I don't let it get too dried out.
The main thing is to make purchases with knowledge such that your green venture will be a success!
I went to watch my nephews in the Nativity play, whilst Juls stayed at home with my brother in law (I thought just drinking beer and watching rubbish TV, but actually plotting the proposal). My nephews were convinced it must say Merry Christmas (Merry is quite like Marry to a 5 and 7 year old)! In addition to that, Juls is Jewish, and I have converted from Christianity, so there was quite a lot of discussion about traditions and how to make sure everyone felt comfortable and relaxed, dietary requirements etc. As we are both mid-late thirties, our parents pretty much trusted us to get on with it after making their suggestions, and keeping them in the loop… Which in turn meant that Juls (being a typical man) left me to get on with it! Narborough ticked all the boxes in terms of being a bit boho and absolutely beautiful, and somehow really tranquil and fun.. I had a fitted top with slash neck made out of fine mesh and the same lace as the dress,  to cover my arms (to fit with Jewish tradition), which went under my dress.
I ordered extra fabric for belts that form bows at the front, so that they all had this in common too.


Every table had a different vase and flower arrangement, and my favourite piece of all has to be our Chuppah (wedding canopy). All tied up with raffia and measuring tape effect ribbon (a nod to our fashion background). I had designed it using some photos of Narborough Hall, and reworking them by hand and with photoshop, then had them printed onto textured matt card which worked beautifully.
Inside the house, we let it do the talking itself rather than impose a colour scheme or style on it. Juls’ quiet, unassuming cousin Ivor, got up and sang his (in Hebrew) to the tune of ‘My Way’.
Within 5 minutes, everyone was singing along to even the cheesiest Oasis style songs at the top of their voices, and joining in with a tambourine, or simply jumping around! Juls nearly had a melt-down that we were going to get married in the barn instead of by the lake, but it was truly beautiful and we were getting married, so who cares where it was!
The stars were then sewn on to a simple white tablecloth and it felt like the most wonderfully personalised starry sky. He took me to the Zetter Townhouse for cocktails, and we ended up in the games room playing Jenga until they closed.
He didn’t realise he’d signed himself up to months of Sunday lunches with my mum planning and Saturday expeditions to wedding venues! I was working in Africa so Ed spent many saturdays venue hunting with my parents and emailing me photos an Skype-ing me to discuss.
Ed is a technology whizz so neatened up my design and we took the file on a USB to a local printer who printed them with the the gold foil effect – they looked stunning! I then realised when looking through all my photos that I didn’t want to get married without my three best friends so asked them too, it was a very big but very fun wedding party! I couldn’t believe what a success it was… eight of us going shopping together would have been chaos! We wrote our wedding booklets very carefully with explanations for all the non-jewish guests.
We walked out to Higher and Higher by Jackie Wilson which felt like our wedding theme tune and we both love Motown and soul music. She developed my idea and built the most stunning installation – it was breathtaking! We sat in the lounge of Barnsley House and were flicking through the wedding albums there when Ed looked through one Ria had shot and commented on how beautiful her pictures were. When we had some last minute table plan changes I had to stay up all night finding all the right boxes and rewriting the stickers! She made us a four tier lemon drizzle cake and decorated it with edible flowers – it looked and tasted amazing!
Miranda and Maz at Carte Blanche had catered one of my best friend’s weddings the year before and from the first meeting we felt we were in safe hands. Lantana comes in several forms, a trailing plant and a bush, and a few lovely colors, including one that's multicolored and gorgeous.
As always, I'm more than happy to offer advice, just drop me a line, or leave a comment here. My tiara had very similar pearls and diamantes to my dress, in a pattern very similar to the lace. I had always imagined myself in a Vivienne Westwood style, and didn’t think anything else would suit me….
We had originally wanted the ceremony to be outside on the lawns towards the lake, but the English weather was having none of it!
Joanne had decorated it beautifully with garden flowers which complimented each room, so I just added tons of fairy lights and a couple more button hearts. Then of course the highlight, when myself and Juls were lifted up on chairs and danced around…terrifying! When Edward walked me home, we narrowly missed my brother who I lived with at the time who got home minutes later. Ben from our marquee company, Joseph Benjamin Marquees, put up a transparent marquee roof over the garden and it actually looked brilliant – like a huge outdoor conservatory.
She came on board and helped keep us organised in the run up and was a superstar on the day!
It was a one-off they’d made for a catwalk show, and whilst I did a quick run round the ballroom to make sure there was nothing else I loved, Mum managed to haggle the price even lower! I loved that Ed had chosen a blue and white patterned lining and had our wedding date embroidered into it.
There’s so many hours of the wedding day before it actually begins, I recommend spending them with as many of your favourite people as possible!
As gifts I gave them each an initial pendant from Harry Rocks – an amazing jeweller who happens to be Ed’s cousin. Walking down the aisle I was so nervous I forgot to look at the flowers, but after the ceremony I saw they were absolutely stunning!
Our rabbi, David Mitchell from WLS has known Ed since he was a student and also knows my whole family – he married my first cousin and her husband the summer before and makes his ceremonies incredibly personal.
We checked out her website and loved her style and when we met her we knew she was perfect. It all disappeared though so she’s going to have to make us another on for our first anniversary. We went for the tasting with all our parents and the minute the first canape came out we knew they were in another league!
Not only were they brilliant on the night, they couldn’t have been more helpful in the lead up and lent us audio equipment for the ceremony. It tends to be the annoying type of plant that gets leggy quickly so one needs to pinch it back frequently and if long shoots with little flowers appear, well cut them off as quickly as you can, which is what I did after I took the photo!
The day before the wedding we decided to move everything into the barn building, which is perfectly dishevelled. Then he confirmed it was me he intended to marry (as according to Jewish tradition), and then lowered my veil and left to get to the barn.
He took me for a picnic two days later and cooked me dinner after a set of night shifts later that week and the rest was history! I shared my hotel room the night before with my twin brother so had him around as well which may not be conventional but I wouldn’t have had it any other way. He really spent time with us and had us over to his house to get to know us as a couple which shone through our ceremony. Everyone commented on how great the food was (and at a Jewish wedding people really take food seriously!) and the salted caramel chocolate brownies were the best I’ve ever had. Charlie the band leader is one of the nicest people in the whole world and a brilliant problem solver!
The nice part about the polka dot plant is that its cuttings root easily to make more plants, which is always lots of fun! I found a shop in Nottingham (Dream Wedding Dress) that had my favourite from my day out with mum, and a similar style to my day out with Raquel… My dad cried when he saw me in the second option, so that was decision made! It reminds me of the wedding in Friends when they have to get married in the destroyed church (although I have to point out that the Barn is much more in good nick than that).
As beautiful as it is I’ll never wear it again and would love to sell it to someone wanting a unique and special dress – very happy to give my email to anyone interested!
If there’s going to be someone in the room when you’re getting ready with your loved ones you have to be happy to have them there too! Though beware gardeners, this is apparently an invasive plant that will be happy to take over your garden if you let it.
Joanne and her head gardener put together a willow frame for the Chuppah, decorated with ivy and garden flowers. I designed the invitations using a few photos of Narborough Hall and a couple of pictures to represent me (a farmer), and Juls (a Blackpool donkey!). Jake, her husband, was her second shooter and was also a total professional and we cannot stop looking at the beautiful pictures they took for us.
They were then wrapped with an outer layer which had another picture inside, and the official invitation working on the outside.
