Hanukkah is one of the happiest Jewish holidays of the year. So light the candles, play dreidel, pray, sing celebratory songs, exchange gifts, and celebrate with eight nights of memorable meals and spectacular tablescapes. The heart of the feast lies within the gathering of family and friends, but there's plenty of fun to be had with sparkling decorations that are sure to punch up the holiday spirit. Maybe this is the year you showcase your burgeoning floral arranging skills with a bountiful bouquet at the center of the table, and it's definitely time to invest in the exquisitely patterned dish set you've been eyeing for months.
While decorating with blue and silver or gold is traditional, it's OK to bend the rules and incorporate a few accent shades or motifs. Touches of fresh greenery or colorful trinkets help to lift the table a bit and break up the conventional color scheme. The most important thing to keep in mind is that Hanukkah is a time to remember the miracle of light that occurred during the rededication of the second temple in Jerusalem, eat, drink, and enjoy being among loved ones. But a beautifully decorated table certainly doesn't hurt. From timeless linen tablecloths to sculptural iterations of the menorah, these blue-and-white tabletop additions will add pizzazz to the Festival of Lights.
