8 Super Chic Hanukkah Accessories Your Guests Will Love
Those of us who celebrate Hanukkah don't necessarily have as many options in the stylish accessory department. But if you dig around a bit, you can find some beautiful choices to use for your gathering. We've rounded up eight of our favorites — one for each night of Hanukkah — to get you started with your holiday gatherings.
Use your favorite sangria recipe, but replace the red wine with Manischewitz blackberry wine. Add fresh blackberries, raspberries, blueberries and peaches to amp up the flavor. For a kid-friendly version, use sparkling grape juice instead.

This all-white zebra menorah is a truly unique piece. It would work beautifully with a box of colorful Hanukkah candles, but would also look super chic with all-white candles, as well. In addition to the zebras, this menorah is also available with giraffes.
Our Product Pick: Zambian Plains Hanukkah Menorah, Bed Bath and Beyond, $94.99
You'll find pomegranates, peacocks, palm leaves and Stars of David on this gorgeous blue and white jacquard table runner. It coordinates with its matching napkins and there's a tablecloth available, too. But this runner would look gorgeous on a wood table with some rustic branches or simple flower arrangements.
Our Product Pick: Star of David Jacquard Runner, Williams-Sonoma, $71.96
These white taper candles are a bit more elegant than the traditional Hanukkah candles you might find at the supermarket. Forty-five hand-dipped candles are included to get you through all eight nights of Hanukkah.

These super inexpensive Star of David tealight candle holders would have a big impact on a holiday dinner table. You can use simple white tealight candles, which will look gorgeous with the silver. Try using a large number of them in the middle of your table as a centerpiece, or put one candle at each table setting.

Orb Cordial Glass
These cordial glasses will bring a nice pop of silver to your Hanukkah tables or cocktail hours. Try mixing metals like we did in the tablescape above and use these glasses with some other gold accessories. Or for a more uniform look, mix the glasses with silver flatware and serving pieces.
Our Product Pick: Orb Cordial Glass, Crate&Barrel, $3.97
To avoid candles from your menorah dripping on your table, make sure to put a tray underneath it. Choose a tray that is slightly larger than your menorah, as well as one that can manage the hot wax (and is easy to clean) like this gold metal hammered tray.
Our Product Pick: Metal Hammered Gold Serving Tray, Target, $15.79
Blue and white are the traditional colors of the Hanukkah holiday, but that doesn't mean your accessories need to be traditional. Try using colorful shibori napkins if you want to create a more boho Hanukkah look. These would look great with simple, white plates.
Our Product Pick: Indigo Shibori Napkins, Etsy, $72
If you've ever tried lighting the candles of your menorah with a short match, you've probably burned yourself (me!). These beautiful, scented matches are a great choice to have on hand if you want to protect your fingers.
Our Product Pick: Ernesto Matches, Gracious Home, $15
Easily incorporate the boho theme with a DIY yarn wall hanging. It looks like a complicated macrame piece, but it's actually a series of simple knots and braids. Watch our easy instructional video to make your own>>

Use branches and leaves to make an earthy, stylish piece of decor. To make this Jewish star wreath, simply tie branches and twigs together piece-by-piece. To assemble, cut six branches to approximately the same length (ours were 24 inches long). Use a floral trimmer or snap branches to shorten them. Tie the branches together, two at a time along with the twine to create a triangular shape. Repeat to make your second triangle, and tie the first triangle (top side up) to the second triangle (top side down) to create the Star of David. Attach leaves or flowers with thin pieces of wire. Don't worry about perfectly lining everything up, as this piece looks fantastic the more imperfect it is.
