4 Ways to Ready Your Home for Holiday Guests

Updated: Aug 26, 2019

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and soon your home will be filled with family and friends. Whether it’s your first time planning the holiday meal or you’re a seasoned host, it helps to prepare. Discover how to get your home in holiday shape with the following tips!

Spruce Up The Doorway

The key to hosting a good party is to create a memorable experience from the moment your guests walk through the front door. First, clear your front porch or doorway of any fall debris such as fallen leaves or limbs. Then, create a welcoming environment by adding seasonal touches like a festive wreath or fall flowers.

Clean The Kitchen

Your kitchen will see a lot of action on the night before Thanksgiving and the day of. Ensure that it’s prepared the job ahead by giving it a thorough cleaning. Pots and pan will pile up throughout the day, so it’s important to start with a tidy canvas.

Clear Out The Closets

The Maryland winter is creeping in, and your guests will surely need a place to hang their coats. Clear out your closets so they have a place to keep them safe during the party. If you don’t already have a coat rack, consider keeping one near the front door for guests.

Prepare The Guest Rooms

If guests are staying over, make the necessary arrangements for the guest rooms. Ensure that there are enough clean linens, towels, and pillows to go around. Take the time to vacuum the rooms, as dust and dander build up easily when the guest rooms are not being used. This is especially important if you have pets!
