So, I’m not Jewish, but I love decorating. I did a quick search on pinterest and found a few ideas:

Beside these, I don’t really know what is common.

Have fun decorating! I’m sure your in-laws will appreciate anything you do.

I’m Jewish, but we haven’t decorated for Hanukkah since I was a kid!  We always have the menorah though.  My mom used to hang something similar to what PP posted though.

Also, we had an electric menorah that we put in our window…

Can you get gelt (chocolate coins) readily near you?  Maybe you can scatter them on the table for a festive look.

Good luck!

 

ETA: when i mean what the PP posted, i meant her first pic of the dreidels on string!

It’s traditional to have a menorah in the window facing toward the street (as opposed to towards your backyard where passersby couldn’t see it)–since the regular kind present a fire-hazard most people will put an electric one on the window sill. Other than that, the decorations are really just done for little kids, so don’t worry too much about it.  If you still want some stuff though, any local target/cvs/walmart/whatever will have decorations you can hang or those decal-type things you put on windows. have fun!

I’m in the same boat…. This is our first year not celebrating Christmas and since that’s all I’ve ever known I’m kinda stumped.

I did see a Hanukkah shelf at Target today with some things and I really like the first poster 1st pic! I may do somethin like that.

Goodluck finding some more things =)

I just found this too from Martha Stewart! She’s ALWAYS awesome… here are her Hanukkah links

@runsyellowlites:  Is your husband Jewish?  I always thought you were very Christian from your posts so I’m interested to hear why you’re not celebrating Christmas this year! 

 

As for Chanukah decorations – there are a ton of things you can do, just keep it silver and blue (or gold).  Lots of pretty table cloths, ceiling decorations, banners, you could even do white small string lights around a room or something.

@Mrs Hedgehog:  So glad you asked this question.  I, too, am married to a Jewish man and would like to incorporate some other items besides the menorah.  Thanks Ms Hedgie and other posters.  Smile

@jacinda10: No, we’re both fully devoted followers of Jesus. I sent you a MSG as to not get off topic on the thread 🙂

I make a lot of handmade decorations since we are interfaith as well. I use green and red driedles  inside silver or blue bowls. We have our hanukkah bush aka christmas tree decorated in blue and white thats also disney themed. I have also have table cloths for hanuukah, and our side tables near our couch have christmas colored candles on them. I also have hanukkah window clings from target.  Walmart and Target and even michaels have great things for hanukkah. I can take some pictures of what I have so far if you would like!
