Host a Hanukkah Open House

The Festival of Lights is almost here! For many people, Hanukkah is an important time to gather with family and friends. If you are planning to host a Hanukkah party, it’s time to start preparing! Take a look at some of our suggestions for hosting a wonderful Hanukkah open house.

Hanukkah party décor from Hickory Farms.

First of all, it’s time to set the stage with some pretty Hanukkah decorations. You’ll find plenty of great ideas from Martha Stewart, like the fun glittered dreidels shown above. For a more homespun take on this idea, consider placing some antique dreidels in a beautiful, hand-crafted basket. Our holiday gift baskets are a great choice because they provide yummy snacks in an attractive basket you can use year after year.

Don’t forget the mantel! This unique, contemporary menorah is easy and quick to DIY, but will definitely impress your guests. Whether you enjoy simple or ornate decorations, Apartment Therapy has some beautiful ideas for Hanukkah tablescapes.

Of course, you can’t have a party without some good tunes. If you’re looking for a fun Hanukkah party playlist, check out Hanukkah Rocks, or this convenient downloadable playlist from Pottery Barn.

Party activities from Hickory Farms.

If there will be children in attendance, games and activities are a must. Fortunately, Bible Belt Balabusta has you covered with lots of creative Hanukkah activity ideas that are not only fun for kids, but also teach them more about the important meanings behind the holiday traditions. Flip the Latke would be easy and fun, while Sufganiyah on a String simply puts a Hanukkah spin on the tried-and-true party standby of eating a donut off a string without using hands. (Sufganiyah is a traditional Israeli donut.)

Decorating ideas from Hickory Farms.

After you’ve got the decorations, the music, and the activities planned, it’s time for one of the most important parts of any Hanukkah celebration- the food! There are definitely some non-negotiable items when it comes to the Hanukkah menu: challah (egg bread), latkes (fried potato pancakes), and the aforementioned sufganiyah, or jelly donuts. Many of the traditional foods for this celebration are fried in oil, a reference to the miracle of the oil which Hanukkah celebrates.

Cheese gift baskets from Hickory Farms.

Another tradition for Hanukkah meals is to include lots of cheese dishes in honor of Judith. Consider creating a fantastic holiday cheese plate using gourmet cheeses from one of our cheese gift baskets. This article from Jewish Woman Magazine recommends pairing your cheese selection with delicious fruits or nuts, giving you the perfect excuse to order one of our fruit baskets or nut gifts.

Gourmet sausage, like our Beef Summer Sausage, is a great addition to your cheese board and will keep guests happy before the meal is served.

Sweet gifts from Hickory Farms.

For dessert, make some marshmallow dreidels, or let us do the work and treat your guests to a basket of sweet gifts including candy, cookies or gourmet chocolate.
