Sound the shofar with a sweet note and invite your friends and family to celebrate a Shana Tovah with paper or online Rosh Hashanah invitations. Whether you’re having a nibble, a nosh, or a new year’s banquet for the High Holy Day, you’ll find designs that feature every graceful addition to the table. Free Rosh Hashanah invitations let you spend extra money on the feast instead of the postage. There’s no lack of sweet courses—you’ll find the traditional apples and honey as well as ruby red pomegranates. John Derian’s rustic autumnal illustrations of the 613-seeded fruit bring a bit of the old world to your modern Rosh Hashanah celebration. Save room for the savory, too, with designs that feature challah, gefilte, and more figurative loaves and fishes. Modern Jewish cuisine goes well with a design featuring Jonathan Adler’s playful mod illustrations. But if you don’t want to spoil the menu (or haven’t come up with one just yet), invitations with Bernard Maisner’s elegant calligraphy make a beautiful entree to your party, even if you’re just ordering food in.
You wouldn’t spare on the details when planning your Rosh Hashanah festivities, so take a little extra time with the online design tool. You can choose new fonts and colors for your message and an online backdrop to frame your design. When you’ve crafted the perfect tablescape to match your invitation, getting everyone to join will be simple. Put together your guest list in the address book and make sure to import your email contacts to account for every distant relation. Keep track of all the comings and goings with the RSVP tracker, lest you not have room for Elijah. Send a guest message to your planned partiers, or to anyone who’s opened the invitation and failed to respond—everyone needs a reminder now and then. When the party’s over, post a few family photos to your event’s online gallery. Consider it your last labor before Yom Kippur.
