Party Ideas to Help you Celebrate the Festival of Lights!
The joyous time of Hanukkah is nearing again. This year the celebration begins on December 1st, 2010. While we cannot offer you the truly necessary items for observing this holiday, we can offer you a lot of fun ideas for making the events surrounding this religious observance special in their own way.
We have a number of ways to help spread the word about your special Hanukkah gathering. Our stylish personalized Hanukkah invitations are a great way to make sure everyone knows where the celebration will be. Choose from a variety of designs that match your theme.
In addition to great looking personalized Hanukkah invitations, we offer many matching Hanukkah decorations that are sure to make this Holiday even more festive. Choose from traditional blue and white to more colorful schemes to add a personal touch to this special occasion.
To take our invitations to the next level, you can always add a little something extra to each. Try dropping some Hanukkah themed confetti in the envelope. Or to sweeten your appeal to your guests, try dropping in some special colored blue and white M&M’s!
With the economy still bearing down on us all, it can never hurt to make your own invites or to even send out e-greetings to people. A quick trip to any store’s office/school supply section can provide you what you need to make some quick and easy invites. Just pick up some paper, markers, glue and glitter and you’re on your way! Go ahead, be creative! Just don’t forget the What, Where, and When!
For an e-invite, check out www.evite.com for a fast way to reach your friend. Always a good method if you don’t want to pay up on postage or if you fall behind your ideal mailing date.
Celebrate this special holiday with our beautiful and festive Hanukkah decorations. We have all the blue and white party supplies you need to have a traditional looking party theme. But you can always accent the old with any new colorful scheme you like for a modern twist to Hanukkah decorations. We have fun and exciting Hanukkah party supplies that are sure to light up your event during this special occasion.
Let’s start from the top down, shall we? Hang some Hanukkah from the ceiling to lift your guests’ spirit and catch their attention. Whether they are simple blue and silver colors or full on dreidels, Stars of David, and menorahs, these fun decorations help guests feel the party is all around them.
Now for the walls; not only do we have you covered, but you’ll have your place covered as well. Try fringe banners or garlands: Hanukkah tinsel garland, Star of David garland, or dreidel garland. Or if you have a special Hanukkah message you would like to share, nothing gets it across better than a large custom banner. Check them out in a variety of sizes and designs.
Somewhere between the ceiling and the walls lies the land of the balloon. Balloons are good for any occasion. For a large number of balloons, try the standard latex kind, in blue or white, featuring the message, “Happy Hanukkah”, surround by mini-stars of David. To add a little variety, throw a metallic balloon into the mix. To really make your celebration of the Festival of Lights shine, try the Lumi-loon (also featuring the message, “Happy Hanukkah”, surrounded by mini-stars of David).
For table decorations, you can let creativity reign with our Hanukkah table kit. It includes a number of different Hanukkah themed items to help fill the space between your plates of sufganiyot and latkes. For a standalone centerpiece, you can choose between a dreidel and a unique Star of David-themed piece. To round out your table décor, a metallic fringed skirt can hide away table legs.
And just when you thought we were done decorating the table, here are some options for table covers.
Last, but not least, don’t forget the music! It may not be a decoration you can see, but it can0020set the mood of a party more than anything else.
We’ve already mentioned sufganiyot and latkes. If you don’t have a recipe handy, shame on you. Here’s a great resource for some traditional Hanukkah comfort food. It will keep you covered for all your brisket, challah bread, kugel, and rugelach needs.
For your guests’ eating delight, you can offer them a variety of paper plates, napkins, and cups. Check out these fun themes: dreidel, menorah, and Judaic traditions. If you would like some more formal options, look no further.
We wouldn’t be doing our job (or living up to our name) if we didn’t offer you some Hanukkah novelties. Rather have your dreidel in non-top spinning form? Try a dreidel paddle ball. Likewise, send the Star of David on an epic adventure slinking down a set of stairs. Or if you prefer your Star of David in necklace form, we’ve got that too.
Don’t forget the Hanukkah themed stickers, hand-clappers, glow-sticks, pens, light-up star, and my personal favorite: ‘Chai Maintenance’ fiber optic hat.
Let’s not forget what the little ones are all waiting for . . . eight days of gifts! To help fill each and every night with something special, visit our Gifts page.
