home for the holidays

So Christmas is peeking at us through the blinds, and it’s your turn to host the festivities. Well, we’ve got some tips to help you get your space holiday-ready so you can host without the hassle and leave a lasting impression on your guests. 

Create A Hosting Plan 

If you plan on hosting, have an actual plan, from the entry to the exit (things are going to get hectic if you try to wing it). Guests show up with an appetite, hugging and waving, looking for somewhere to hang their coats and dig in. Include the following in your holiday hosting plan so things can run more smoothly for you: 

Guest Accommodations

Determine the number of guests, sleeping arrangements, and any special requirements they may have. Prepare guest rooms with clean linens, extra blankets, and amenities for comfort.

Menu Planning

Create a menu that accommodates dietary restrictions and guest preferences. Create a schedule for meal preparation, serving times, and planned activities.

Shopping and Supplies

Make a detailed shopping list for groceries, beverages, decorations, etc. Stock up on essentials and consider having extra supplies on hand.

Communication with Guests

Keep open lines of communication with your guests regarding arrival times and any specific needs or preferences

Back-Up Plan

Have backup plans in case of unexpected situations, such as changes in weather, emergencies, or last-minute cancellations

A well-thought-out hosting plan not only ensures a pleasant experience for your guests but also allows you to relax and enjoy the festivities alongside them. This will create a less hectic and more inviting atmosphere.
