The Festival of Lights is coming soon — we’ll start celebrating it just a few days after Thanksgiving this year. That means it’s an appropriate time to get started decorating with traditional Hanukkah decorations.

Whether building a collection of Hanukkah decorations or doing something of a refresh, there are lots of directions to go with holiday decor. While menorahs and dreidels are pretty standard and need to be part of any celebration, there’s a lot of fun we can have. This may include tinsel, balloons, streamers, and even cookies and decorative pillows.

Take these decorations as simple or as far as you wish, and don’t forget to have fun with them. This is a festive occasion, enjoy it!

We’ll be updating this post as we get closer to Hanukkah, but start your decorating with some of the seasonal decor below.

Apeloig Collection Menorah / Flower Vase

This incredibly stylish acrylic menorah is available in six translucent shades: navy blue, blue, white, smoke, burgundy and multicolor, and when it’s not being used as a menorah, it can transform into a flower vase, simply remove the metal cups and store them in the beautiful storage box. It’s simple, too. Just fill each hole ¾ full of water and arrange with flowers of your choice. It’ll be a beautiful centerpiece!
