This year Hanukkah celebrated from December 6 to 14. There are so many lovely decorations to celebrate this holiday! Although I don’t come from a Jewish background myself, I look forward to new Hanukkah decorations each year that I can incorporate into my Christmas decor. Some of these items are so beautiful they work for any time of year!
My favorite Menorahs are silver and hold tall, thin wax candles. I’ve found some great versions this year of this important piece. Here are my favorites:
- Menorah Tree: Menorah Tree, $59.59, IndigoChapters. I love the tree inspiration of this menorah. It works well with rustic decor with still maintaining a fairly traditional shape.
- Silver Hanukkah Menorah: Silver Hanukkah Menorah, $59.95, Crate & Barrel. This is my favorite of traditional menorahs. I love the finish on it (nickel plated) as it is not too shiny and has a contemporary feel while maintaining a traditional style.
- Modern Menorah: Nambe ‘Illume’ Menorah, $175, Nordstrom. This menorah is really modern and looks like a piece of art. It’s a great piece for the non-traditional holiday decor.
- Latke Platters: Hanukkah Latke Plates & Platters, $14.95 – $34.95, Crate & Barrel. These platters are really fun. I think they add a touch of whimsy without being tacky or kitschy in any way.
- Beverage Napkins: ‘I Love You a Latke’ Beverage Napkins (20ct), $3, Target. I love clever napkins! They’re an inexpensive way to add some charm to a party.
- Table Runner: Hanukkah Table Runner, $14.99, Target. This runner is really simple and makes a great hostess gift, too. I think its simplicity is fantastic.
- Dreidel Shaped Platters: Dreidel Shaped White Platter & Dip Bowl, $34.95, Crate & Barrel, Dreidel Shaped White Appetizer Plates, $5.95 each, Crate & Barrel. These are pretty fun. The handles make them easy to balance with a glass of Manischewitz!
- Cocktail Napkins: Slant Collections ‘Oy To The World’ Cocktail Napkins, $7, Nordstrom. These are another cute package of cocktail napkins. I like little touches like these because they are inexpensive and temporary, so if you get tired of them, there will always be something new next year.
- Dreidel Set: Wood Dreidel & Plastic Gelt Set, in Linen Bag, $5, Target. It’s nice to have something for the kids and this inexpensive set also makes a cute decoration.
As many families celebrate both Hanukkah and Christmas, I’ve included some combo decorations, too! Here are my favorites:
- Round Ball Decorations: Joy to The World Collectibles ‘Judaica Glitterazzi’ Round Ball Decorations, $61, Nordstrom. These ornaments are beautiful. They’re handblown glass and come in their own gift boxes (they take 7 days to make!). I like ornaments like these because they make lovely gifts and family heirlooms.
- Chrismukkah Sign: Primitives by Kathy ‘Happy Chrismukkah’ Box Sign, $19, Nordstrom. This is such a cute sign to put up on a fireplace mantle or bookshelf!
- Glass Star Ornaments: Silver & Blue Glass Star Ornaments – Set of 4, $17.95, Crate & Barrel. This is another great set of glass ornaments in beautiful silver and blue. They were so popular last year that Crate & Barrel brought them back (psst! they sell out fast!). These look really lovely with metallic string or ribbon hangers.
- Glass Candle Holders: Star of David Antiqued Silver Glass Candle Holders, $7.95 – 44.95, Crate & Barrel. I really would like to have a set of these and I think they are beautiful year round. The antiqued silver glass is so stunning anywhere in your home and the smaller ones are great for table settings.
- Snowman Ornament: Joy to The World Collectibles ‘Snowman Ornament’, $55, Nordstrom. This hand-blown glass ornament is so cute and whimsical! I think it really blends the two holidays well.
- Happy Chrismakah Pillow: Levtex ‘Happy Chrismakah’ Pillow, $39, Nordstrom. I love the Star of David atop the tree on this pillow as well as the non-traditional shade of blue.
