Hanukkah Gifts and Favors

With Hanukkah coming up we thought it would be great to offer some ideas for small Hanukkah gifts. Since there are eight days for gift giving, using favor ideas is a good way to come up with Hanukkah gifts. The truth is that you can pretty much take any favor that you deem appropriate and turn it into a Hanukkah gift with the right labels and packaging. Favor boxes with blue or silver ribbon and favor tags that are printed with “Happy Hanukkah” would be perfect for coins or other treats. Olive Oil bottles that are labeled in the same way also make nice gifts for adults or families. Personalized match boxes with bundles of candles are a lovely gift for the celebration of a Festival of Lights. Kids would love Sugar Cookies in the shape of stars or Dreidel, which can be beautifully presented with personalized labels and favor bags for cookies. You can even make DIY Star of David Ornaments that would fit right in with the overlapping holidays. All you have to do is be creative and make it pretty.

Oranges and Tangerines for Winter

Orange is such a bright summer color, can it really work for a winter wedding.  We think it can.  The orange glow in candle light can engulf a winter celebration with warmth.  Tangerines and oranges have fresh citrus scents that are magical with cinnamon and cloves, which are perfect for the winter.  Here are some winter orange and tangerine ideas we love.

Pink for Winter Weddings

Pink is a fresh color that is a top choice for brides having a spring wedding.  However, the pretty hues of pink can be surprisingly charming for winter weddings. Get a little daring and thing pink snowflakes and shiny bright pink Christmas ornaments.   It will be “oh so chic” and once enhanced with gold elements, your pink winter wedding will be spectacular.

 

A Very Purple Christmas Wedding

Purple is usually a color that is selected by brides in the spring or even autumn, but not often a color that is selected for winter weddings. However, purple is a royal color and looks great when combined with gold, which is very popular during the holidays and winter.  There are some unique ways to incorporate purple with snowflakes and pinecones, that will glamorize a winter wedding.

 

 

 

 


 

Emerald Green Winter Wedding

Winter weddings tend to have some similar themes.  Frosty blue and snowflakes are popular. However, bold colors are just as beautiful when contrasting white snow.  Emerald green is a popular color of the year, so why not incorporate it into the winter as well.  It definitely fits holiday themed weddings.
