The holidays are a time for celebration and fun, but they may also take a lot of preparation and can be daunting for many of us. From buying and wrapping presents to decorating and organizing the home, the to-do list can feel endless. Here are some tips on how to get your home in top shape for the holiday season.
Add some cheer to each room
Holiday decor doesn’t have to mean displaying ornaments, wreaths and reindeer in every room. The festive feeling can come together in any room with just two to three simple touches. Bright area rugs and cushion covers, festive florals and centrepieces can give an entire room a lift. You can also rotate these items throughout your home to give it a refresh throughout the season. Also adding one or two new items each year can make your home feel and look different each holiday season.
Get Guest Ready
Add that special touch in your guest room, if you are anticipating guests staying over this holiday season. From towels to scented candles, that special detail will go a long way to guests feeling welcome and enjoying their stay. Keep your house fresh and smelling great. There are many homemade aromatherapy recipes on the internet that includes items that you already have in your pantry like cinnamon sticks, lemons and oranges that when boiled add a beautiful fragrant to the house that lasts for a long time.
Freshen up for the Holidays
As much as we love unboxing holiday decor and furnishings each year, the musty, stale smell can sometimes be unpleasant. The first thing to do is wash and freshen up everything from linens and table runners to holiday throws and cushions. A quick wash or tumble in the dryer with fabric softeners or sheets goes a long way to making them look and smell great the entire holiday season.
