Many families will get together with other members of the family as well as friends to enjoy wonderful dinners and entertaining parties to celebrate this wonderful winter holiday.

Using flowers around the home can help to complement the rest of your Hanukkah decor while also adding a bit of life and light to the inside of your home. Here are some easy ways to help the home feel even more festive and ready for the celebrations by using flowers.

The table centerpiece

With dinner as an important part of many Hanukkah celebrations, selecting a table centerpiece can be a critical part of adding to the decorations. Consider combining the traditional Hanukkah colors of blue and white along with a winter wonderland theme and select a centerpiece that includes a variety of gorgeous white flowers with some white candles. Utilizing candles in your centerpieces is a wonderful way to compliment the central tradition of the menorah. The candles can be carefully lit during the meal to help contribute to the ambiance and even create a more formal atmosphere.

Flowers throughout the home

Adding vase arrangements around the house that use the traditional blue and white color scheme, can help bring smiles to people’s faces no matter where they go in the home. White lilies and roses can look particularly spectacular. These arrangements can be added to the entranceway of the home as well as tables, shelves, and mantelsthroughout the house.

White roses for gifts

Giving guests a small token gift after a celebratory dinner can be a wonderful way to share goodwill for the holiday season. White can be particularly spectacular for this type of gift. White roses have traditional association with friendship, respect, and hope for the future, which all are great messages to send to friends and families after a Hanukkah celebration. Keep a bouquet of white roses near the main door and give one to people as they prepare to leave.

With Hanukkah quickly approaching, it’s time to get into the spirit of celebration. Decorations help lift everyone’s spirits and flowers are a beautiful way to add life and vibrancy indoors. Keep these tips in mind and you are sure to wow your guests with your holiday decor!
