This year Hanukkah begins on sundown of December 1st. Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights, is an 8-day Jewish Holiday that celebrates the re-dedication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem in the 2nd century B.C. Hanukkah, which means “dedication” in Hebrew. Hanukkah festivities include games, gifts, eating traditional foods and lighting a new candle on the menorah each night. A great gift to give anyone whom embraces Hanukkah is a beautiful Hanukkah floral centerpiece.
Hanukkah is celebrated by a series of rituals that are performed every day throughout the 8-day holiday, some are family-based while others are communal based. Many families exchange gifts each night, sing various Hanukkah songs, pray, and eat! Add to your Jewish friends and family’s Hanukkah by gifting them beautiful Hanukkah flowers to add even more beauty to their celebration. .
Flowers make for a wonderful gift no matter the season or reason. Their aroma and colors fill any space with such beauty and warmth. For your friends, family, or co-workers who celebrate Hanukkah rather than Christmas there are many brightly colored flowers that embrace this holiday beautifully. The most common colors used in Hanukkah arrangements are blue and white, somewhat symbolic to the theme of the Festival of Lights but you are not limited to just these two colors. There is no real right or wrong color to incorporate in a Hanukkah flower arrangement.
Hanukkah starts this year on December 11th so you want to get your order in soon if not now. Set your budget and when ordering your flowers online with Brant Florist consider in your shipping cost into your budget as well. Choose the color theme you want in your Hanukkah arrangement – traditional blue and white – or make it more personal reflecting the recipients personality or favorite flowers. When selecting the flowers for your floral Hanukkah flower arrangement, make sure the flowers picked will last for at least 7 days and longer if possible. Hanukkah spans for eight days so it is nice when the flower arrangements last the duration or longer. Gifts of white poinsettias are also a great option as they have a very long life span.
If the flower arrangement can support a candle, specialize your order and have one added.
Here are some arrangements, not all specific to Hanukkah, however still make great gifts for that special person who celebrate Hanukkah or to get you started on creating your own personalized Hanukkah flower arrangement with Brant Florist.
