Chanukah begins this Sunday! Have you got a Chanukah or Holiday Party in the works? In our last post we offered up some Chanukah jams to set the tone for your celebration. This time, we are focusing on all the other elements - decorations, drinks, games, and of course nosh!
We are LOVING Jones Soda's Chanukah 4 Pack featuring flavors like Latke, Apple Sauce, Chocolate Coins (yum!), and Jelly Doughnut. It is the perfect Chanukah party drink, and best yet, Jones Soda is Kosher!
For a fun alcoholic beverage, try The Manischewitz Sangria recipe by our friend and Schlep Tote designer Sari Victoria. This drink is always a huge hit at parties. Once you've emptied your Manischewitz bottle, pop in the Menorah Cork. Voila! You've got instant party decor, as well as a functioning menorah.
Speaking of decor, if you're planning to have non-Jewish folk at your Chanukah party, are planning a generic holiday party (or celebrate Chrismukkah) check out the Tree Menorah. It will make everyone feel included. Trim your Chanukah Bush with menorah string lights and Dreidel Hustler String Dolls.
This year, Chanukah coincides with Christmas. Are you planning to have the traditional Chinese food dinner on Christmas this year? Then our Jewish Fortune Cookies are a must. Filled with Yiddish proverbs and wittisisms, these cookies are always a party hit. As are Mashuga Nuts, the cinnamon sugar covered meringue pecans. YUM.
Lastly, you'll want to have games and favors! No Limit Texas Dreidel is the hottest Chanukah gift this year. This clever game combines the tradition of dreidel with No Limit Texas Poker. The Star of David Hologram Glasses are our favorite party favor. They turn any bright source of light (including menorah candles!) into glowing Jewish stars.
