Be Guest-Ready this Holiday Season

It’s fun to get your home ready for the holidays! Here are seven simple ways to get your home feeling festive and ready for entertaining:

  1. Clean and Polish
  2. Fresh Coat of Paint
  3. Time to Decorate
  4. Add a Coffee and Cocoa Bar
  5. Be Guest Ready
  6. Outdoor Festivities
  7. Wintertime Hot Tub

1) Clean and Polish

Before you do anything else, give your home a deep cleaning. Consider giving your carpet a good cleaning or polish those floors you’ve been neglecting. Clean out the refrigerator and oven to get ready for baking up all those delicious goodies. Give your bedrooms and office a good purge and get rid of anything that hasn’t been used in some time.

2) Fresh Coat of Paint

Now that your house is clean and bright, why not add a fresh coat of paint? How long has that color been on your walls, anyway? Update it with a new color that gives your home a fresh and clean feel. Make sure to pick colors that look great year-round!

3) Time to Decorate

One of the fastest ways to spruce up your home is to decorate! Add a tree, hang lights throughout your halls and around door frames, replace pictures with festive images and be sure to add a little holiday spirit to every single room. Swap out pillows and throw blankets with festive, holiday ones.

4) Add a Coffee and Cocoa Bar

What’s better during the holiday season than some piping hot coffee or cocoa with loved ones? Don’t keep it hidden! Create a coffee and cocoa bar in your house so your family and guests can help themselves to a nice warm cup anytime!

5) Be Guest Ready

Even if you aren’t planning to have guests over this holiday, you never know when someone might pop over unannounced! Be guest ready by having the guest bathroom and bedroom ready at any moment. Pile on the clean bedsheets and blankets, and make sure there is enough bath tissue just in case someone wants to stop by and stay the night.

6) Outdoor Festivities

Don’t forget the outside of your home! There are so many options for adding some holiday flair to the exterior of your house, too.

ProTip: Add wreaths to your doors, lights around the rooftop, or even a blow-up holiday character to your yard to give your home an instant holiday update!

7) Wintertime Hot Tub

There is nothing better than sitting in a nice, toasty hot tub when the weather is chilly and cold! Adding a hot tub to your outdoor living space is perfect all year round, but it is especially nice when you want to warm up after a long day of shopping in the cold weather!

Spruce Up Your Home for the Holidays

Sprucing up your home for the holidays doesn’t have to take up too much time. In fact, most of these can be done in less than a day! So, go get cleaning and decorating and when it’s all done, enjoy some relaxing time in your new bubbly hot tub while you enjoy the holiday season.
