“Thank you! Its basically kosher marshmallows with a pretzle stick in the top, and a Hershey kiss on the bottom.  I used frosting to stick the kiss to the bottom.  Then I just used frosting to write the letters on the side. For the platter in the picture, I only wrote one letter on each driedle so the frosting wouldn’t smear.  This year I am setting it up as an activity for the kids to do themselves, which should be a lot of fun!”

My First Chanukah Party by Michelle Dayan

2 Comments 03 November 2012

Thank you Michelle Dayan for sending in pictures of your first Hanukkah table!  Although its hard to store extra holiday table accessories in a small apartment, you created a gorgeous Hanukkah atmosphere by mixing in some of the decor that you already had, and added in just a couple of extras. Great Job!!!! Marlene

“Dear Marlene,

Here are some pictures from my Chanukkah table. I got inspired from all the amazing pictures you’ve been posting. I wanted to make a statement with my table but I didn’t want to spend a fortune and didn’t want to end up with lots of Chanukkah decorations (I’m in a small Manhattan apartment so I always have to think about where to store things!).

I ended up sticking to a silver and blue theme and using the silver Chilewich runner and placemats that I already owned. I wrapped two empty boxes in blue wrapping paper (which I also had laying around) and topped them off with beautiful silver ribbon from Papyrus. I scattered silver gelt and wooden dreidels over the table. I “invested” in 8 small votives from Crate and Barrel (a dollar-something each), and placed four on either side of the centerpiece. Finally, I found a DIY driedel place card template from Martha Stewart‘s website–they were fun to make and cost practically nothing!”

I also baked sugar cookies with the recipe you posted. I decorated them with blue sugar. The driedel cake I made by baking brownies in a 9 x 13 pyrex, then cutting two diagonal lines at the bottom, and cutting a strip off the top, which I used for the handle. I made a stencil of the letter hey and sprinkled confectioners sugar through it.
