It’s the most wonderful time of the year! If you’ve got guests coming over for the holidays, these tips will ensure your home is ready for entertaining.
1. Create a Festive Entrance
You know what they say about first impressions. If you’ve got guests coming over, don’t forget to create a festive entrance to your home. Make sure your doorway is clear of debris so guests have a clear walkway to enter. Simple touches like a holiday wreath on the door is an easy way to add a beautifully decorative touch.
2. Add Warm Hues
Adding warm hues that correlate with the winter seasons around your home (think dark greens, reds, and gold) is an easy way to create a warm yet inviting environment. Pinterest has endless inspiration for winter color palettes.
3. Create a Relaxing Space for Guests to Unwind
After traveling far distances, many of us can’t wait to relax and unwind. If you have guests coming to visit, we recommend setting up a space where they can do just that. If you have a guest room, make sure it is stocked with clean sheets, fresh towels and special touches such as a candle and book selection.
4. Create a Festive Feast
If you’re cooking a holiday meal for guests, don’t forget to add some flair to the table. Special touches not only show stylish flair but thought and care as well. Try adding subtle seasonal touches like sprigs of holly tucked into napkin rings, mini poinsettias flanking a centerpiece or garland wreaths along the sideboard.
5. Make a Christmas Card Display
Let’s face it — many times, those Christmas cards we receive end up in a pile somewhere in your home. This year, create a festive Christmas card display to create a sentimental holiday touch. Get some inspiration here.
6. Put Together a Holiday Playlist
Who doesn’t love Christmas music, even if it’s just a little? If you’re having guests over, put together a playlist of holiday hits. Spotify, Apple Music, and other streaming websites have lots of great playlists already created and available for free.
