Home For The Holidays
The holidays are the perfect excuse to gather those closest to us in celebration. This in turn usually means anything from dinner parties to overnighters to even week-long houseguests. If you are anticipating some short-term roommates in your near future, read on for a few tips to create a welcoming home for the holidays.
Prepping your house for guests ahead of time will pay off in the long run. Menu planning, Cooking and freezing meals and ensuring your house is clean and the sheets are washed will keep stress levels at bay and allow you to spend more time with those you love.
As much as we all love to gather, connect, and enjoy each other’s company, there is also something to be said for personal downtime. Stocking the guest bedroom with relaxing items such as magazines & books, a candle and some comfy slippers will allow your guests to sneak away for some wind-down time every now and again to recharge their batteries.
There is nothing more frustrating for a host and houseguest when they are constantly being bombarded with questions. Where’s the toilet paper? Where do these cups go? How does the TV turn on?!
Leaving a welcome note with items such as the wifi password, garage security code and coffee machine instructions will ensure the house (and house guests!) continue to run smoothly.
