The holidays are here once again, and now is the time to start making your preparations so that you and your home are ready to receive guests with open arms and festive cheer. Follow these simple tips to get your home in shape to host an unforgettable holiday gathering.
Put Everything in Its Proper Place
It’s easy to lose track of clutter when you’re among it all the time, even if it’s just a few simple things that are left on a table or draped over the back of a chair. When you’re having guests over for a festive holiday celebration, however, you want everything where it’s supposed to be so your guests feel like they can make themselves at home. Go through your home with a detailed eye, searching for things that you would normally overlook on a daily basis, and you’ll be ready to give your guests the ultimate holiday escape.
Welcome Your Guests with Fresh Flowers
Nothing helps people feel at home quite like the sight and scent of fresh flowers adorning their temporary space. Floral arrangements can brighten up any room, and putting them in the place where your guests will rest and unwind from the festivities is a signal that you care about their well-being and want them to relax as if they were in their own homes.
Make and Accessorize Your Guest Beds
After a long day of fraught holiday travel, there’s nothing someone wants more than to curl up in a clean bed and get some much-needed rest. Make all of your beds in the guest bedrooms to completion, rather than just setting clean sheets out for them, so they can relax in comfort as soon as they please. Don’t forget to accent the beds by putting out cozy blankets and elegant throw pillows.
A Well-Stocked Bar
You want your guests to enjoy their time at your home, and for many people that means imbibing with a holiday cocktail or a glass of wine. Make sure your home bar is ready with several types of spirits and mixers that will please a variety of tastes. Also, you’ll want to come up with a couple of mocktail options so the non-drinkers don’t feel left out. You don’t have to have everything, but a few versatile selections will enable you to create many different drinks.
