A festive holiday atmosphere can really increase the fun and excitement at your Hanukkah Party. Here are a few Hanukkah decorations suggestions to get your creative juices flowing:
- Welcome your guests to your Hanukkah party with a Personalized Hanukkah Banner.
- Wrap empty boxes with colorful wrapping paper and set them on shelves around the party area. Set them on the food table to hold bowls of goodies.
- Decorate in blue, white and silver. Drape crepe paper streamers from the ceiling and anchor groups of balloons around the party area.
- Set up a menorah in an area where it can be seen, but will protect the candles from being blown out. Alternatively, use an electrical menorah.
- Cut snowflakes and Stars of David out of construction paper and hang them from the ceiling with blue, white or silver curling ribbon.

- Make latkes (potato pancakes) and serve them with sour cream, applesauce, or jam.
- Make your own applesauce by combining apples, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract in a saucepan and cooking until smooth.

- Make sugar cookies in the shape of dreidels and menorahs. Make this an activity by allowing the children to frost the cookies in blue and white frosting.
