The holidays are officially here! Are you hosting Christmas at your house this year? Here are a few ways you can prepare for your guests!
You want a clean and inviting household. Go through the whole house and make sure it looks clutter-free and tidy. Don’t forget to spend some extra time in the main areas of your home (i.e. bathrooms, kitchen, bedrooms, family room, etc.)
When it comes to cleaning the bathroom, have extra toilet paper, a plunger, and a trash can easy to find. Put a candle or some fresh flowers on the counter to give it a fresh smell.
If your guests are staying the night (or a few nights), double check the bedding and towels that you have. You want to make sure that your guests have everything they need.

Sorry we are experiencing system issues. Please try again.
Decide ahead of time what you and your guests will be eating. This way, you can make a grocery store run before they arrive and can make sure you have everything you need. It will be so nice to not have to think about what you have for dinner tomorrow. Planning it out ahead of time can relieve some stress!
Along with the food, have an idea of what you and your guests will be doing over the holidays. You don’t want your guests to be bored, and you don’t want to feel like you have to babysit them either.
You don’t have to get all crazy creative, and you don’t have to jam-pack your schedule. Just have a few ideas.
If you’re feeling super ambitious, bake some cookies, or have extra fun with Christmas decorations to welcome your guests. Don’t forget the Christmas music!
But most importantly, be happy. Don’t let the stress of having Christmas at your house keep you from remembering that it’s the “happiest time of the year.” You being happy and spreading the Christmas cheer will make your guests feel more at home than anything else.
