Hanukkah and a Little Christmas Decor



We celebrate Hanukkah each year.  My girls enjoy lighting the menorah each night and playing a little dreidel.  When we began celebrating several years ago, I googled latkes and how to serve them.  We fried up hashbrowns then topped them with a little sour cream and applesauce.  It sounded weird but, boy, was it good :)

With a couple of nights left in Hanukkah, I've also begun pulling out the Christmas decorations.  I'm still wading through storage totes but here is a glimpse of what I've done so far.

The bar table sits between the breakfast area and the den.  I've used the vintage style tinsel trees in gold and silver.


By the way, the burlap runner that's on the bar table now...it's the one that faded onto my linen pillow requiring a quick fix to salvage it.  You can see that post here.  I removed the burlap sleeve and it's now living life as a table runner :)




This silver tinsel wreath is from Target (purchased at Goodwill still with tags).  I love the aged patina of the silver.


The bar has an outdoorsy, masculine theme with the pine cones and duck themed glasses.  There is a bottle of homemade wine in the tray.  I tried my hand at wine making last year with the blackberries we have here on our land.  Let's just say the bottle is purely decorative now and I will stick with things I know from now on.  (It tasted like fingernail polish remover!)

Well, back to the decorating.  I promise there are colors involved elsewhere.  The front porch is going plaid!  I love plaid.  I have a Pinterest Board just for plaid if you'd like to follow it.  It's I Heart Tartan.

Thanks for stopping by and God bless!

  1. I love your menorah, it looks like a timeless treasure that's been passed down....and I'd say you are one lucky girl to score that wreath at a thrift store!
