Whether you spell it Chanukah, Hanukah, Hanuka, Chanukkah, or Hanukkah, the festival of lights are upon us. And those lights are a beautiful reminder that light shines brightest during the darkest times. Why not celebrate that with an awesome party? If you’re throwing a Chanukah bash to remember – here are some decorating ideas that will make your party one for the record books.
1. Turn up the light: Since we all love the holiday white twinkle lights, why not bring them in from the outside to light up your living and dining rooms. A light canopy creates a soft, subtle atmosphere that reminds you of the never ending stars outside, or an awesome backdrop for a photo booth.
2. Go for the gold: Chanukah gelt is a fun treat that you can gamble without worrying about losing any money. Why not use your gelt to decorate by gluing together the gold foil packages to create this awesome table runner.
3. DIY your Menorah: If you want an awesome mantlepiece menorah that will leave your guests ooh-ing and awe-ing, you can take vases or votives of different sizes and fill them with pebbles, marbles, pearls, or even your favorite candies to create an eye-catching centerpiece that can serve as an awesome conversation starter.
4. Menu Plan: There are tons of traditional foods for Chanukah, focusing on all-things fried. Lighten up your menu with a fresh salad to serve alongside traditional potato pancakes and donuts, and make blue and gold cocktails to keep the party going.
5. Get in spirit: A great holiday outfit can make or break any party, so make sure you’re the best dressed at your Chanukah bash. Whether you want to wear a dorky Chanukah sweater or a sparkly dress for a cocktail party, don’t forget to accessorize with the perfect finishing touch for any outfit – pearl button earrings.
No matter how you spell it or celebrate it, Chanukah is a great opportunity for a party where good food, good drinks, and a lot of love surround the room. Focusing on the light is the best way to get through these dark, cold winter nights – so why not do it in style?
Until next time, xoxo,
