Hanukkah is an important Jewish holiday. It is the time when Jews commemorate the rededication of the holy temple in Jerusalem and the miracle of the lamp that burned for eight days. All Jewish families celebrate this holiday and decorate their homes. Some basic Hanukkah decorations are the Menorah and dreidel. Below are additional decorating ideas to give your home a more festive feel.

  • Decorate your home with the traditional colors of white, blue, and silver. For your dining table, put a Menorah for the centerpiece. Use a white table cloth and accentuate this with dinnerwares in blue and silver.
  • Hang some decorative lights outside your home to add more festive mood.
  • Display old Hanukkah cards in your windows by hanging them on a string. You can also ask your kids to help you decorate your house. Have them draw candles, dreidels or Menorah. Using a silver colored string, hang these artworks into your windows.
  • In the living room, accentuate your throw pillows with blue pillow cases adorned with the Star of David. Hang blue and white curtains.
  • Decorate your Hanukkah bush. Make paper ornaments to hang in your bush. Be creative and stick to the blue, white and silver theme. Add tinsels and decorative lights to complete the look of your Hanukkah bush.
