By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions
We’re very busy getting ready for hosting many people for Thanksgiving and Hanukkah. How are you all coming along with holiday prep? This party was by Blooming Table for a birthday party, but the blue and white packaging and desserts can give you some inspiration for the eight days of Hanukkah, right?

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions
There are so many elements on this table from Elianne at Elivents in the Netherlands that we love. The unconventional salmon and navy color palette and quatrefoil pattern gives it a fresh look for the holidays. Hanging stars made it feel very festive, too. You can also change the shapes of the stars if you want to create a similar look for Hanukkah. Sweet treats on the dessert table included star and present shaped cakepops,…

Hanukkah Cookie Bags

With Hanukkah quickly approaching, we wanted to give you one more fun baking and crafting project. We created little cookie bags, which we made look like mini shoe dust bags, by simply sewing paper that we found from Kate’s Paperie. With these cookie cutters, we baked off a basic sugar dough , and then decorated the cookies with royal icing from here. We then filled our little cookie bags with the Hanukkah cookies! We hope…

Hanukkah starts this Friday at sundown and I thought you would enjoy this cookie candle menorah that we worked on for Hanukkah.

Simply pick up these cookie cutters from Sur La Table, bake off a basic sugar cookie recipe…
