Your Holiday Starts NOW

Your Holiday Starts NOW

The holiday season can be a great time to create new memories with loved ones, but it can also be stressful if you’re not prepared and organized. If you focus on a few key tasks now, you won’t have to spend hours doing damage control when you should be enjoying yourself. So today we are sharing 5 ways to prepare your home for the holiday season.

Every season it is a good idea to start purging closets and other areas of our home. Instead of focusing on deep cleaning your home, start by de-cluttering problem areas and getting rid of things that take up valuable space. A de-cluttered room often gives the illusion of being clean even if it isn’t. This will help you when you have guests over.

Get Kitchen Ready:
The kitchen is the heart of the home, or at least in ours it is. During the holiday season so much time is spent on baking treats and cooking for the family. If you think or know that you need to make some more space, now would be a good time to start purchasing some plastic bins to put the non- perishable foods in to store until the holidays. Don’t wait until you’re in the thick of it to start preparing for family and guests. Start thinking and planning on kitchen space, ingredients and hiring help to prepare the kitchen.

Stock up on essentials:
If you plan on having overnight guests over the holiday season, ensure that you stock up on essentials. Some items to always have on hand are paper towels, toilet paper, hand soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion and toothpaste. Even if your guests bring their own toiletries, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared in case they forget something. Although we don’t host overnight guests since our family lives locally, I do like to stock up on paper products and food items that I can quickly serve guests if needed.

Get the guest bedroom ready:
If you’re going to have guests this holiday season, you need to ensure that they are comfortable for the duration of their trip. Beyond the surface-level cleaning, bedmaking, and organizing, consider adding an ‘essentials’ basket with items like toothpaste, lotion, mouthwash, and other useful items. You’ll also want to deep clean the most important place; the bathroom. All surfaces should be wiped down and residue-free. The toilet and shower are the most important, of course, to create a ‘hotel’ experience.

Whether you've done it once or countless times; hosting guests for the holidays is no small feat. Even if your visitors are just staying for a few hours for a holiday party, you want your home to shine; you want to impress with your hosting know-how. (After all, not everyone knows how to throw a house party or holiday feast.) Call us if you need our help!
