Our mother Raquel Ishay A’H absolutely loved to set up table. Swanees, brit milahs, bridal showers, even shabbat. All done beautifully to its last detail, and all done, in our eyes, effortlessly.
She made it no big deal and before we knew it, the simcha went right up with a blink of an eye....and they were all gorgeous. She took pride into making each and every event she ever made in our home, making sure each one was special.
Almost a year ago, in the name of her refuah, we started lending out her own table cloths and chargers because it made her so happy to know that she was a part of someone's smile and happiness....and this idea grew. We started buying our own inventory, and before we knew it people started donating to help us buy more table cloths, chargers, napkins and accessories. That transformed into Hosted by Raquel.
Our goal here at Hosted by Raquel is to help emulate that feeling and to continue how she taught us the beauty and importance of simcha. To help others make their intimate simcha at their home beautiful and unique and stress free. Every family is welcome to come and make their party feel special and beautiful.
Now, the opportunity for anyone to be involved in simchas is at everyone’s fingertips. What if a person can donate for a tablecloth in memory of someone? Or a set of chargers in honor of someone? Or napkin ring set in refuel of someone? Even to sponsor someone to get married and find their shidduch! Or have a baby!? Now, each product will have a label specified to your dedication. You’ll be able to see exactly where your donation was helpful.
Now a charger isn’t just a charger. Everything is elevated to something greater. To know that we can now grow this, in her memory and at the same time help a family elevate their simcha in a stress free way is an amazing feeling.
Be part of someones simcha and bring back our mother Raquel’s smile!
