Preparing for the upcoming holidays.
Every year, in anticipation of Hanukkah, we dig through blogs, Pinterest, and magazines to find inspiration to create a fun and unique Hanukkah celebration.
Year after year our disappointment grows as we often find the white, blue, and silver-themed holiday displays to which we have all grown accustomed. Often times with little to no floral aspect to it. There’s nothing wrong with the traditional style and colors, but sometimes we really want to shake things up. This year we wanted to depart from the traditional colors and inspire you all to host a different type of Hanukkah party with a lush tablescape and beautiful details that will be loved by young and old. This tablescape created by Kosher.com hit a home run and we wanted to share it with you!
To create this look, they used dried blue Larkspur, dried lavender, dried centaurea, wheat, and pampas. The use of dried florals is perfect because it will last all eight days while still being perfectly intact. It also “helps anchor the palette of brushed gold and blue hues.”
“To me, setting the tone is most important for any wonderful table. Whether it be fancy, formal, or playful, this holiday is your opportunity to let your creativity shine. I wanted to create a table that wasn’t kitschy or tacky, so as a result, I opted for a less obvious “Hanukkah theme” and instead concentrated on the color palate. And, while I specifically created this tablescape for Hanukkah, I think it would be beautiful for any dinner party throughout the year.”
“While decorating with blue and silver or gold is traditional, it's okay to bend the rules. The most important thing to remember is that Hanukkah is a time to remember, eat, drink, and enjoy being amongst your loved ones! But a beautifully decorated table certainly doesn't hurt.”
