Chanukah Party Ideas

It’s Chanukah (or Hanukkah I like to mix it up and use both spellings ;)) time! Chanukah so fun and a great time to get together with family. Also a time to eat lots and lots of latkes! My love for latkes I cannot put into words, for me it is a comfort food. Luckily they are only around me for holidays. Otherwise I would just be eating them all day everyday.

The only problem I have with Chanukah is the lack of decorations available. Growing up we celebrated Hanukkah and Christmas, which was a lot of fun. However, Hanukkah had a hard time competing with Christmas because of the lack of decorations and Santa. Chanukah Harry just isn’t the same as Santa(SNL reference). It is the festival of lights but doesn’t have as many lights as Christmas. I do love how many temples now are putting up giant menorahs that you can see from a mile away. I also love the mench on a bench, how funny is that?! The Chanukah section is usually a tiny bin buried in between Christmas decorations. I am going to share with you a few easy DIY Chanukah party decorations. read more

Happy Chanukah! I’ve been busy the last couple of days getting ready for Chanukah, it kind of snuck up on me. Right now it doesn’t make sense for us to have a really menorah. Keira’s 3 she can kind of be trusted to not touch things but I don’t trust myself completely with candles ;). I decided to put together a little menorah with paper straws that my daughter could be involved with “lighting”.

All the supplies are Target dollar section. You can do any colors you want, you need: paper straws, wrapping paper, pipe cleaners, a cereal or cracker box and tape to hold it together. read more
