Hanukkah Tablescape

With Hanukkah early this year and the first full day landing on Thanksgiving, I thought it would be fitting to do a little tablescape for this special occasion. This tablescape is perfect for jewish thanksgiving dinner or a dinner on any of the other nights of Hanukkah.

I kept the table super simple with gold chargers, white plates and a blue table cloth. I added a couple of eye-catching elements with a simple DIY Hanukkah dreidel card (the how-to will be on the blog tomorrow) along with printed napkins. I didn’t want the flowers to overwhelm the table, I used simple white daisies and stock in mason jars. They add the perfect dash of prettiness to the tablescape. Get some flowers from Interflora and be sure to use my Interflora discount codes.

 

I don’t know what happened to the knife in this photo?

 

 

 

THANKSGIVUKKAH SANDWICH

The last time that Thanksgiving and Hanukkah fell on the same day was in the 1800s, luckily for us we will see this event in our lifetime, this year! The next time it happens is apparently in 77,000+ years from now. Pretty crazy right. We must take advantage of these two huge holidays and combine them into one amazing feast, THANKSGIVUKKAH!

Last week my friend Eden from Log On and Eat with Eden Grinshpan (if you haven’t seen the show, watch it, it’s great! Tuesdays at 9:30pm EST on the Cooking Channel) dropped by my apartment to make what she called a Thanksgivukkah Sandwich. Genius, right. This sandwich packs so many flavors your head might pop off. The latkes, the turkey, the homemade cranberry sauce and the fried sage, you just can’t go wrong. If you have some left over gravy throw some of that on too!

Check out Eden’s blog Eden Eats for the latke and cranberry recipes.
