prepare your home for easy holiday hosting

The holidays are approaching! What better way to prepare than finding fresh and easy ideas to host? Get your home ready with these 5 steps.

1. pre-stock guest spaces

Make your guests feel right at home with nicely stocked guest spaces, like fresh sheets and extra blankets. Give an extra touch in the guest bedroom with a tray of mugs, hot cocoa, and tea to give that "bed and breakfast" feel.

2. prep your serving areas

Have some sofa tables, counter space or buffet tables that could work as serving spaces? Clear them up and pre-set with a drink station or candies for the season to quickly turn them into a dessert bar or more!

3. add holiday scents

Hosting can be a lot of work, so get in the mood with some neutral and natural holiday scents! A quick way to make your home feel cozy is with a diffuser or candle. Both of these options give off a warming effect and add a holiday aroma to the space. Plus, your guests will feel like your home is super holiday-spirited.

4. plan decor wisely

The last thing you need is more stress, so be smart with your holiday decor. If you're hosting a larger crowd, it's best to stay away from anything fragile or hazardous to your guests -- you want to enjoy yourself, not constantly be checking on your decorations. It's even best to put away any year-round decor that you wouldn't want to get broken. Think about your table spaces to make sure there is enough room to put down drinks and food, so they don't end up spilled all over your couch or favorite rug.

5. have some goodies stocked up

If you're ever in a pinch, keep your pantries and freezer stocked with some appetizers or desserts for those last minute visits, or any extra needed treats in the middle of an event to avoid running to the store. 

When you prep and keep your space holiday-ready, you'll be happy to bring in guests and have an easy, worry-free time at all your events.
