After a night of crazy Shushan Purim it was so nice to get together with people from Pardes and re-live the night before. Kendra, Nikki and I had a great time prepping hard for our Seuda and it was all well worth it. My living room was filled with fun breakfast food, mimosa’s, balloons, hamentashen and conversation on Friday afternoon. It was so interesting to hear all about the different parties that occurred around Jerusalem from the night before.
I would advise future Seuda hosts to go with the breakfast theme. We were able to create a fun menu of French toast, egg soufle, hash browns, muffins, biscuits, fruit and salad. The menu was tasty, easy and asthetically pleasing! Especially when a Seuda is held early the morning after Purim celebrations this theme works great!
Being semi new to Pardes I really felt excited to be an active part of the community by hosting. It was such a great opportunity to get to know everyone better. Though we may not have done such a traditional Seuda, I think we all felt the spirit of Purim in Jerusalem! Thank you Pardes for helping facilitate such a fun experience, and thank you to everyone who came and helped make it such a special memory!
