The Festival of Lights is upon us; a time to come together with family and friends to celebrate the rededication of the Holy Temple. To get the whole family prepared for Hanukkah, we’ve compiled some simple Hanukkah decorations to set the scene for a beautiful 8-day celebration.

Silver, Blue, and White Ornaments

As Suburbs Mama shows us, displaying simple silver, blue and white ornaments around the Menorah is a stunning and beautiful way to decorate for the celebration. It’s also very simple! You could also place various sized ornaments in glass canisters and place at different places around the house, such as a mantel and windowsill.
