With the holiday season comes all the stress and anxiety of preparing your home for guests and parties. It’s easy to let the stress of holiday planning get in the way of the spirit of a season meant to be full of cheer and gratitude. If you want to get through the season with ease, then follow our quick guide of five easy ways to get your home in the holiday spirit.
Tip #1: Plan Ahead
Getting any holiday home in order requires your own holiday spirit of organization. So plan ahead and try to anticipate who will be visiting and what parties you’ll be hosting. By planning as many of these home events as possible, you’ll feel less stressed and better able to manage them as they arise.
Tip #2: Make a List
Make that list of holiday to-dos. Then definitely check it twice! If you want to remember to deck your halls, you’ll need a list of all that materials required to do that. So get organized with a running holiday checklist.
Tip #3: Add Some Theme Decorations
It’s always a great idea to add some theme decorations to your home to get it in the holiday spirit. For example, pack up a few photo frames on your piano and replace with a pair of Mercury glass holiday trees. Take down a piece of framed art and add a holiday-themed piece. Throw some festive colored pillows on your couch. These are simple touches that go a long way.
Tip #4: Stock Up on Holiday Snacks
With surprise guests dropping by to wish you well during the holiday season, you need to be prepared to offer them a seasonal drink or snack. So stock up now on your favorite goodies and have them on hand for your favorite people.
