10 Traditional Hanukkah Flowers & Flower Arrangements (2019)

“You know, you don’t need to wait for a special occasion just to get me flowers”.

I remember saying that to my ex-boyfriend one time; he gave me a death stare in response (that’s not why we broke up though 🙂 ).

Well, guess what? There is a special occasion around the corner. It’s called Hanukkah! So no excuses this time!

Don’t worry, you don’t have to physically drive to the flower shop and pick up some random flowers you know nothing about. Instead, I’m going to show you what flowers are best for Hanukkah. And guess what? It’ll arrive right at your doorstep (there goes another excuse)!

Sound good?

Great! I knew you’d come around!

  • Gentlemen – get ready to pick up some nice Hanukkah flowers for the people you love!
  • Ladies – make sure your spouse or boyfriend reads this…

Let’s begin 🙂

8 Stunning Hanukkah Tablecloths & Table Runners (2019)

Every time someone asks me for Hanukkah table setting advice (or any table setting for that matter), I always start by saying:

“Make sure you get the right tablecloth. The tablecloth makes up 50% of the table decor.”

The same is true for Hanukkah tablecloths (or table runners). If you’re hosting a Hanukkah dinner, make sure you use a tablecloth that fits the occasion.

What does that mean, you ask?

That’s precisely why I wrote this guide: to show you my favorite Hanukkah table linens you can use throughout the entire week of Hanukkah – whether you’re hosting a Hanukkah party or eating Sufganiyot with your family!

40+ Elegant Hanukkah Decoration Ideas, Ornaments & Party Supplies (2019)

Look outside… What do you see?

Christmas trees, shiny lights, reindeers flying over your head…

Say what you will about Santa – he sure knows how to throw a party.

Let’s be honest: as pretty as a Menorah may be (and there are quite a few gorgeous Menorahs out there), it doesn’t stand a chance against Santa and his army of elves.

It’s no wonder Jewish kids (heck, even adults) feel like “second best” on Hanukkah. Can you blame them? While everyone is out there celebrating Christmas under the Christmas Tree, opening presents, having a jolly good time – Jewish kids have to settle for the “crumbles”.

Question is: what can we Jews do to make Hanukkah at least as appealing (or dare I say, even more appealing)?

I’ve got two words for you: Hanukkah decorations.

Not just any decorations… I’m talking unique Hanukkah supplies and centerpieces; the kind that make kids (and adults) jump out of bed in the morning!

That’s why for this year’s festival of lights (”2019”), I decided to create a MONSTER guide (it took me almost a week to create it, btw) to help Jewish families decorate their home for Hanukkah and turn their house into one gigantic Hanukkah treat! 

Mark my word – by the end of this guide, you’ll have enough Hanukkah decoration ideas to last you for a lifetime. 

OK, enough babbling, let’s get this party rolling!

Yippee! How exciting!

Should you get her a Star of David necklace? Maybe a Hamsa bracelet? How about a Shema Yisrael ring? Perhaps Roman Glass earrings?
