Celebrating Hanukkah: Easy and Stylish Jewish Holiday Ideas
Kid-Friendly Dreidel Garland
Dress the staircase with a colorful dreidel garland — a kid-friendly craft the family will enjoy making together. You'll need scrapbooking paper, pencils, scissors, stencils and glue. String shapes on clear craft or fishing line and tie ends onto a staircase banister. The garland also adds a festive holiday touch to decorative shelves or the mantel.

Quick and Easy Potato Latke
Food prep shortcuts mean extra time to set the table and craft some special decorations. Traditional potato latkes are made with frozen shredded potato, which saves time and the accompanying "risks" that accompany using a hand grater. Get the recipe>>

Star of David Cupcakes
Round out your celebration with an easy, delicious dessert. Nestle cupcakes in unique serving vessels like julep cups or pewter drinking glasses. Ice each with blue frosting. To make easy edible star embellishments, melt white chocolate and spoon into a sandwich bag — with the tip of one corner cut —and pipe the star shape on top of each cupcake.
Celebrating with Jelly Donuts
Store-bought jelly donuts are easily heated in the oven and tossed in fine sugar for a final flourish. Serve immediately for instant applause.
Great food, beautiful decorations and place settings, and treasured guests add up to a special Hanukkah celebration — one that honors the significance of the holiday and helps create lasting memories for all.
