The Festival of Lights

Chanukah / Hanukkah- The Festival of Dedication is an 8 day Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple. Beginning on December 6th this year, it is the first official religious holiday falling in the month of December. 

The festival is observed by the kindling of the lights of a unique nine-branched candelabra called a Menorah. Each night of the holiday a new candle is lit, progressing to eight by the final night. The typical menorah consists of eight branches with an additional visually distinct branch. The extra light, with which the others are lit, is called ashamash and is given a distinct location, usually above or below the rest.

The traditional Hanukkah table is dressed in blues and whites lending themselves to a crisp and elegant look.  Mix and match your placemats and napkins with various textures to give your table setting that extra wow. Don't forget the centerpiece.  Be creative and have fun with it.  

If you're on a budget or hosting a larger feast, try our plastic linen-look tablecloths in white paired with a bold royal blue table skirt and to finish the look, add a light blue valance .
