As you know, Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and that means it’s time to get your house decorations in order! But this year is different from the rest. Why? Because for the first time since 1888, Thanksgiving and Hanukkah land on the same day!
Since this could quite possibly be the best holiday of all time, we are giving you a special post for Thanksgivukkah house and table decorations!
If you missed the details, the next Thanksgivukkah won’t happen for another 78,000 years – so if you’re Jewish and if you love turkey, then it’s time to get your house ready for family, food and celebrations!
Thanksgivukkah House and Table Decorations
Preparing your house for the holidays is never an easy feat, but here at Simply to Impress, we know how important it is to prepare early.
The most important thing to think about is your table. Thanksgiving isn’t Thanksgiving without a proper table! To spice up your table, focus on blue, orange, brown or metallic colors. These will perfectly compliment your holiday table. One idea is to use an orange table cloth with blue place mats (as pictured below). Or, you could do a blue table cloth, with brown place mats and orange pumpkins, candles and plates. You get the idea – use the colors to bring your table to Thanksgivukkah life! And, it’s even better if you can use items that you already have around the house.
Next, think about your actual decorations that will go on the table. What candles will match your table cloth, place mats, napkins and plates? Candles are especially important because you’ll need them for your menorah. Other good ideas for your table are: pumpkins, leaves, flowers and decorative corn.
Here are a few photos of our favorite Thanksgivukkah table.
You can use any different variation. Just use your creativity to bring your favorite two holidays together.
Or maybe you need a “menurkey”! Don’t be afraid to go all out for this holiday – after all, it will only happen just this once!
