  1. Beautiful, Lory. This would be pretty for any season or holiday. I did a blue and white table much like this years ago just not with the menorah. 🙂 That is a beauty though.

    1. Thanks, Kim! Yes, it seems every post I do with blue and white always resonates with so many people. It’s one of those really popular combinations… 🙂

  2. How so very beautiful Lory. Love how you used the blue and white Chinoiserie decor for your table decorated for Hanukkah. I have seen many Hanukkah Menorahs and your silver one is exquisite!…Your rainy day situation turned out to be great as the vignette looks wonderful in your breakfast room! You created a most exquisite Hanukkah vignette that even Martha Stewart would be in awe of!!!

    1. Thank you so much, Shirley! I know we’ve all been through that situation with a rainy week and photo shoots to get done, so we need to improvise. I so appreciate your kind words!!

  3. Nothing plastic, gaudy, or tacky about your Hanukkah decorations. Everything is gorgeous and elegant. I agree with Miss Shirley…Martha Stewart would be in awe of how you pulled this all together!

  4. This is so elegant and beautiful, Lory. I am so happy that you shared such a gorgeous wany to decorate for Hanukkah, there isn’t much inspiration out there. The blue and white, silver and chinoiserie patterns are just about perfect! That menorah is superb, who wouldn’t want to light the candles in that? Even Martha couldn’t make this more special, this is the perfect holiday table for a meaningful holiday, Lory.

    1. Haha Lidy, maybe I should contact Martha… 😉 But seriously, thank you so much for your kind words and for all you did to help put this tour together!! It was a great one that I was so grateful to be part of.

  5. Lory – I have so many friends that celebrate Hanukkah and they would love your tips. You rock the Hanukkah decor. I will be passing this post around. Really lovely! And what a stunning menorah! Happy Hanukkah to you & yours!!

    1. Thanks so much, Kelly! I really enjoyed being part of this tour and can’t thank you enough for including me… 🙂 I finally got a chance to make the rounds today and everyone really outdid themselves!!

  6. Wow, you are an inspiration!!!!! Just found your blog, but I’ll be a follower now. Getting in the Hanukkah mood….

  7. What a beautiful table Lori! Blue and white is always a favorite of mine and I love incorporating it for Hanukkah. Happy Hanukkah to you and your family

  8. Your Hanukkah Menorah is absolutely gorgeous! I’ve never seen one so pretty! I love your collection of blue and white Chinoiserie . You created the perfect setting!

    1. Thank you, Anne! It’s funny how blue and white is one of those combinations that resonates with so many people… 🙂

  9. Beautiful! I absolutely love all things Chinoiserie! So festive. 😉

    1. Thanks, Rebeca! Yeah, the blue and whites are so popular! I hoped that even though most people don’t celebrate Hanukkah that they would still enjoy the post… 😉

  10. Lory, I’m sure everyone has already covered what I wanted to say, so I’ll just add that I’m glad you stayed true to your own style and used what sang to your heart. The blue and white chinoiserie is gorgeous and this colour scheme always has timeless appeal.

  11. I love all the blue and white details, Lory! And that is very cool that Martha Stewart inspired you in that way 😉
    Hugs, Jamie

  12. I just found you blog via Pinterest and all I can say I am so happy about it! Such an inspiration! Beautiful pics! You got me right on Holiday track – – – I’ve been feeling a little bit *blah* with Hanukah and now I can’t wait the 2 weeks to go by quickly enough! Thank you so much!
    And your Menorah is absolutely the most beautiful I’ve ever seen!

    1. Miriam, thank you so much for your comment!! It’s comments like these that keep me on track when I feel like blogging is just too much work. My goal is to inspire and it’s a pleasure to know when that’s working… 🙂 Welcome and enjoy!!

    Gorgeous inspiration! Just what I was looking for. We celebrate hannukah and Christmas and I love using blue and white for Christmas but really wanted to make a statement in my dining room.for hannukah this year. I agree it should be just as gorgeous and elegant as Christmas!

    1. Thank you so much! You’ve actually inspired me to do more with the mix of holidays… 🙂
