Modern Hanukkah: Purple and Silver table decor

Celebrating the Festival of Lights?  Dress your Hanukkah table in clean lines of purples and silvers....so modern, so chic!

On this table, a rich purple tablecloth is covered by a beaded purple runner (both from the fabric store). Add pale purple napkins to complete the monochromatic trio.  Silver splashes in with a pearlescent placemat accented with a cascading silver ribbon (ok, technically you're not supposed to use placemats and tablecloths at the same time, but I feel like breaking the rules).

Kids can make Stars of David out of pipe cleaners...or you can make a few elaborate models, such as the 3-D star shown below.  Make three top triangles, attach together, and loop the three bottom triangles to their top triangles. Easier than it sounds.


If you're going to spend calories on chocolate, it should be good chocolate.  Skip the waxy gelt coins and instead, play dreidel for these pretty silver filigree pieces, found at the jewelry aisle in the craft store.  The dreidel is made with purple and silver glitter Fimo clay.  Here's how to make a dreidel out of clay, just like the song says.



How to make the placemats:

Place two pieces of 8.5x11 scrapbook paper together on the reverse side.  Tape a little bit of the ribbon to the top of the reverse side of the paper, as shown. I recommend using wired ribbon so you get a clean bend.

Happy Hanukkah! Need food and bev suggestions? Check out these ideas for a hip Hanukkah menu.
