The first night of Hanukkah is almost here, and if this year has you ready to jump into the celebration more than ever before, you’re not alone! To help you welcome friends and family with extra warmth, we’re sharing a few of our favorite festive ideas from around the web. From the fireplace to the dining table, let these spaces inspire you to celebrate beloved traditions—and maybe even make a few new ones!
Layered with Love
Plenty of layers are always recommended for seasonal décor! Strung garland paired with pennants adds interest beneath a mantel made cozier with fragrant eucalyptus leaves. Blue-and-white accents peek out from among the foliage, and the display finds height in a fun floral display and an elegant, nature-inspired menorah.
A Little Something Sweet
More than a sweet touch, a scattering of chocolate gelt along this tablescape adds a bit of contrast to the monochromatic palette, creating a fun focal point. Shimmering gold pairs perfectly with neutral tones, making a few wooden dreidels an ideal finishing touch!
Warm and Cozy
Make the holiday extra sweet with a Hanukkah-themed hot cocoa board! Little ones will especially love this new tradition that encourages cozying up around the fire with family and making new memories.

A Dramatic Touch
Those classic blue tones found in many Hanukkah displays take a deeper turn in this setup, which incorporates dramatic dried florals in rich tones. Drape silk ribbons for a sophisticated element that will elevate simple pieces to stunning levels.
Love the minimalist life? An understated Star of David in a natural finish keeps the season’s significance in mind while blending beautifully with your cottage’s décor.
The Perfect Blend
Welcome family to the table with a spread that celebrates understated elegance along with a few contemporary touches. Simple gold candlesticks are elegant vessels for multihued tapers, and blue-and-white tie-dye is a fun choice for table linens that keep things just casual enough to be comfortable.
Counting the Days
Make those eight nights even more magical with a wall-mounted calendar that doubles as décor! Pockets attached to the back can hold small gifts, adding an extra layer of anticipation to your family’s celebrations and making this the perfect new tradition to welcome into your home.
