We celebrate Chrismukkah in the Sky household. My husband and I are Jewish (I converted prior to our wedding) however, Christmas is a big holiday for my family so we celebrate both! You may remember the show ‘The OC’ (it was really big when I was in high school) and Seth describes the holiday best – you can find the clip, here. Given that we celebrate both Hanukkah and Christmas I try decorate the house and of course our table accordingly.
Last year, I went with a winter white tablescape and this year I was really into greens/boxwood. With Hanukkah beginning tomorrow, I thought I’d share our table! Our tradition for Hanukkah is instead of celebrating each evening (outside of lighting the candles), me and my mister have a traditional Hanukkah dinner together as a couple (which we started when we got married) – I’ll make the brisket, latkes, and more! Then, we have one evening of celebrating at my mother-in-laws with my husbands family. For Christmas, we stay at my parents house for a couple of days to celebrate with our family.It’s my favorite time of year! Fun fact: I used to get sick every Christmas growing up because I would get so excited that I’d get sick. Thankfully, that no longer happens, however I’m no less excited!
Chrismukkah Table Setting
This year, since I was into a lot of greens and boxwood, I selected a boxwood wreath and used it as a part of my centerpiece. I placed my new Mikasa crystal menorah in the center and added some baby’s breath around the wreath to accent it. As for the table setting itself, I used beautiful silver beaded placemats (similar here) which I topped with this fab silver charger from Crate and Barrel (which they now have in gold and rose gold…already picked up the rose gold because I can never walk out of there without more than what I planned). From there, I added our wedding china, a pretty silver napkin and these super cute mini boxwood wreaths I ordered on Etsy. I flanked the setting with my favorite gold flatware. Yes, I mixed metals – it was theme for my holiday decor this year, in addition to being a favorite look of mine. And just because I love it, I used our wood names at each seat. Since it will be a water and champagne kinda of night, I put these super cute Le Grand Courtage Brut minis for us to pour our own!
When setting a table for two, I try to make it even more intimate and personal. Like the place cards, the mini champs, the mini candles – it just adds a special and personal touch to the table!
