This year for the first time in more than 100 years, Thanksgiving falls on the first night of Hanukkah (and it won't happen again for another 77,000 years!). Needless to say, it’s a bit challenging marrying these two holidays, but I am up for the challenge. I have decided to ring in Thanksgivukkah by melding my holiday menus with the traditional turkey with stuffing, but I will be making my sweet potato latkes and cranberry apple sauce (recipe coming tomorrow!) as a side.
The tablescape and holiday wrap will be blue and orange. I made super cute turkey cut-outs and embellished them with tiny Stars of David for place cards, and persimmon, figs, and branches will anchor the centerpiece. Twinkling blue votives on a pumpkin linen tablecloth will finish off the holiday scheme.
Have a peek into what our table will look like for our first (and last) Thanksgivukkah ever:
To Get the Look:
Placemats: Pottery Barn Kids
