the most stylish seder we've ever seen

The Passover Seder is an event rich with tradition, and tabletop decor rarely gets a refresh. We thought it was time to put a stylish, modern spin on the Seder, and brother/sister team Jenny and Dave Kaplan were just the creatives to call. Below, Jenny and Dave style a Seder that celebrates tradition, in style. They even manage to work in an heirloom or two while they’re at it, along with the most chic interpretation of a Seder plate, ever.
