Create a festive holiday table -- complete with pretty Hanukkah centerpieces, napkin ideas, and decor in traditional blue and white -- for your Hanukkah celebration. A little time spent setting the table makes the Hanukkah feast more magical.
Go for bold when shopping for a table runner and napkins. Tie-dyed designs make food and dishes pop, especially when paired with solid whites and blues. At the center of the table, a seasonal flower assortment (ours includes white calla lilies, seeded eucalyptus, and purple fountaingrass) sits in a shallow tray so that it can be easily moved aside.
Tie a few leafed branches into a Star of David shape for an inexpensive addition to your Hanukkah table. Trim extra leaves from the stems, leaving a few leaves just at the tips. Stem-color twine keeps everything in place.
For a unique menorah, set glass tea-light holders on silver-and-blue wrapped boxes, securing the candleholders with double-stick tape.
Ribbon is an inexpensive embellishment that adds the perfect touch. Run a scarf of pretty blues down the center of the table, then tie blue-and-white napkins at each place setting with ribbon featuring a decorative edge of beads and coins. Wrap small plastic boxes with pieces of decorative ribbon and fill them with foil-wrapped chocolate coins.
For a festive centerpiece, use two-sided extra-wide velvet ribbon to create a table runner. Gather the middle in a knot, and line up tall tapers down the center. Push star cutouts (trimmed from cardboard and covered with decorative paper) around the base of each taper candle. Hang beads from the edges.
