The Jewish Hostess Macaroon Menorah Hanukka Table RECAP

8 Comments 08 December 2014

Last year’s Hanukka , I wanted to try to be a little different than previous years, and I also KNEW that my table had to be unique being that my kids put the “Jewish Hostess” pressure upon me. Loving how macaroons have been in the forefront of “dessert style” lately, I brainstormed with Leila Akaad of “La Magnifique Macaron”  famous for her fantabulous homemade macaroon displays, we dreamed up a Macaroon Menorah in which she would create an ombre of blue macaroons in 8 plus 1 lucite canisters and we would display it upon a lucite bow that was 3 feet wide and 4 inches high. Under the box I placed some mirrored squares from Ikea and atop that I scattered some sparkly blue and silver dreidels.

Atop each pacesetting was a gorgeous blue glass dish (if you are interested in purchasing please contact me marlene(at)thejewishhostess.com), an IKAT cotton napkin, in which I folded a blue velvet ribbon and placed an “M” squared Hanukkah coaster. (it looked better on the napkin than set as a coaster- as I always say- you DON’T always have to follow the table setting “rules”!)

 

I then placed a cake pop with a hand calligraphied name tag (designed and baked by the talented Mari Gindi) for each guest in front of each plate as a place card holder.

Note my wonderful West Elm purchases!

 mercury glass vases, Hanukka dishes, and festive mercury glass votives. I love West Elm as a Jewish Hostess resource center because that always add a Jewish touch in the midst of all the Christmas Holiday decor, not making the Jewish Hostess feel like an alien in a red and green table setting decor of a  whirlwind shopping season. They even had a whole HANUKKAH category on their website!

Wine tags added to the festivities as everyone took home a kosher wine bottle as a special hanukka gift. The lucite trays are a gorgeous addition to any table. Please contact me if you are interested in scooping up one as a gift or for your self……

 

Besides Bingo, and some activities whipped up by the kids, we placed Lottery tickets under each plate. The grand winner won $17!!!!

All in all it was a great Hanukkah night. I am grateful that I am able to share a beautiful table with my wonderful family and FABULOUS JEWISH HOSTESSES.

LET’S KEEP ON SHARING our holidays and semachot on The Jewish Hostess! Send all ideas and submissions to marlene(at)thejewishhostess.com),

Dear Florence, Thank you for sending in your gorgeous party pics! Its amazing that you made all of the desserts and displayed it all by yourself. It totally looks like you hired a party planner! You are fantastic! Marlene

“Hi Marlene!
I love your blog and I’m always checking in for beautiful inspirations!

I recently had my daughter Giselle’s first birthday party and I thought I would share the results. The theme was princessy with lots of hits of pink and royal purples. I made the cake, matching cookies, cake pops, chocolate lolly pops and macaroons all to coordinate with the theme.

I used mirrors and different shaped glass containers for the display. Martini glasses held pink or purple candies, a large square vase doubled as a biscotti cookie jar, smaller vases held pink and purple chocolate lolly pops while two trifle bowls were filled with homemade french macaroons and berry salad. I tied the tall vases with ribbon to match the tulips, one was dedicated to pink and one to purple. ”

Enjoy another great Passover recipe from my mother in law Shirley Mamiye. Though there are hundreds of Passover dessert recipes out there, its not always that  you get a good one- especially a low fat Passover recipe, so- think of me on Passover,  when you sit down with a good cup of coffee snuggled up on the couch with your favorite book and a creamy slice of this passover cheesecake, because I will probably be somewhere not too far away, doing exactly the same thing!  Marlene.

p.s. You can also pour this recipe into mini cheesecake teflon pans and bake for about 15 minutes less.

  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • vegetable spray
  • Beat egg white till stiff.

Directions for this Passover Recipe:

  1. Blend sugar, cream cheese, sour cream.
  2. Add lemon juice and vanilla sugar.
  3. Fold in egg whites.
