Party Decoration Ideas

For a Hanukkah celebration, decorations help spice up the festivities. Plan out ahead of time, focusing on the colors blue and white, which are the main colors for this Jewish holiday. Think of the walls, the table, the entry to the driveway as well as the front door.
Some Jewish families like to purchase and decorate a "Hanukkah Bush," the counterpart to the Christmas tree, which is a cute idea for those who are familiar with that particular Christian tradition. If you would like to tap into your creative side, you can make decorations, either before or during the party. A fun arts and craft project would allow the guests to bond. You can set out scissors, a hole bunch, string, blue and white construction paper, and some markers. Have the guests and children create a chain of Star of Davids cut from the construction paper. Each paper star can be decorated and customized, then strung together, and hung around the house or on the Hanukkah Bush.

Another important decorative icon of Hanukkah is the menorah. If you have a menorah that uses real candles, be sure to place it in a safe area. With guests and kids at a party, you don't want lit flames to be a safety hazard, but of course you still want to display this great decorative piece.
When you're setting up before your guests arrive by each place setting at the table, you can have a plastic or wooden dreidel. Not only are they simple table decorations, but they are also fun to play with later and will help to keep the kids occupied. Plus, the audlts really do love playing with them too! However you decide to decorate for a Hanukkah party, remember to have fun and involve your guests!
