Home for the Holidays

Here are some tips on how to get your home ready for the holidays so your guests will feel welcomed and comfortable

  1. Create Space for Guests- Move family’s luggage to a spare bedroom, clear out your coat closet, and have an umbrella stand handy if it is raining.  This will provide them with a welcoming space for their belongings.
  2. Freshen up the Bathroom- Once the bathroom has had its usual cleaning, set out guest hand towels and a new bottle of hand soap.
  3. A Warm Glow- Light some candles but be sure to keep an eye on them if they are in places such as a bathroom or hallway.
  4. Entryway Impression– Sweep your steps and front porch area to eliminate leaves, cobwebs, and dirt.  Shake out your doormat and remove any clutter.  Replace any outside lights that burnt-out. Keep in mind, your entryway is really your home’s first impression. 
  5. Quick Decorations- Make a centerpiece out of a wooden platter and some small white pumpkins or a vase full of fall branches.  Use fall colored placemats to spruce up your table.

Most of all enjoy spending time with your family and friends!  Have a wonderful Holiday!
