Here is a sneak peek of the table that I set up for our Thanksgivukkah meal. I tried to incorporate both Thanksgiving and Hanukkah colors while keeping it classy. I'm loving metallics for the holidays right now. Walk into any store and you'll find aisles of gold, silver and white holiday decorations. Swoon.
The mercury glass dishes bring added flair to the table as well. Type "mercury glass" into the search bar at Target.com to find an array of metallic holiday decorations like vases, lamps and lots more home decor items.
After dinner we lit the menorah and listened to our Jewish friends sing songs to us.
(These are my three Jewish friends.)
After dinner, dessert and more dessert, we moved the menorah into our formal living room for some hardcore gaming.
We played fun games like Kosherland (yes, such a thing exists) and Tic Tac Menorah. I learned how to spin dreidels like no other and ate lots of chocolate gelt.
Then we got distracted with the new iPhone 5S slow-motion feature and made videos of dreidels spinning for most of the night. I should post those videos. This picture was taken from one of them as the dreidels dramatically fell from their tower.
All in all, we had a wonderful Friendsgiving and thoroughly enjoyed incorporating Jewish traditions into the Thanksgiving holiday. Stay tuned! Throughout the next week I will be posting Thanksgivukkah recipes and decoration ideas.
