Last year, I had this idea stuck in my mind, I wanted to create a spinning Dreidel at my Chanukah Party.
Though originally I was struggling to come up with an idea, I picked up a house shaped holiday gift box at a local Dollar Tree. After “topping” it off with a 2” party favor cube, I covered the entire “Dreidel” with mylar (shiny paper) and then lots of candy. Placing it on top of a display turntable and watching everyone’s faces, I knew this Dreidel spinner was a real winner!!
My philosophy is that every celebration should include interesting and memorable details. This however, does not mean it has to be complicated, or expensive. Often, the most memorable party favor, table décor, or original presentation, is by taking regular household items and transforming them into an unforgettable memento that will remain with the guests long after the party is over. A couple of years ago, I did a Chanukah party setup for Mishpacha Magazine. Included in it was the following idea for Chanukah themed napkin rings. All it is, is pennies… but the décor, is priceless

Seating cards need not be reserved for formal occasions. Let your family and guests feel special knowing that there's a space at the table reserved just for them. These elegant place card holders are economical and easy to create. Use them at your own meal or give them as a gift to your hostess/mother/mother-in-law.
