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
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.
