Holiday Prep

Tips to get your house holiday ready without last minute stress.

Focus on the main areas of the house that guests will be seeing. Areas you may not think of are the porch and entryways.

-Nice seasonal scents to keep the house smelling great. Make sure not to get heavy smells or too many scents going at once. Some people are very sensitive to certain scents so be sure you can clear the smell out easily if needed.

-Set the table ready. You might already have fancy dishes you bring out on special occasions or maybe now is a good time to invest in some.

-Clean the oven and fridge. This step can avoid an oven catastrophe, and make sure the fridge is ready to store all the holiday food. Quick tip, go through your recipes and see what can be made ahead of time.

-Prep for house guests. Make sure you have room for anyone staying over, clean up the guest bathrooms and make sure to have lots of extra towels, toiletries, pillows, and bedding ready.

-Have small children coming? Make sure you kid proof as best as you can and maybe invest in some cheap baby and toddler friendly dishes. Also, make sure you have food and snacks that are tailored to small guests.

-Clean those floors. Cleaning floors can be a tedious task and take some time. But you can google quick tips from pros on easy floor cleaning methods.

-If you have a fire get the space ready by having wood and fire starter supplies, clean the fire place, set some cozy blankets and pillows around the fireplace to create a nice place for guests to gather.

Be sure to book a bin if you need!
