The holidays are upon us here in the Twin Cities and whether you are able to celebrate with family and friends this year or your holiday plans have been postponed, what better way to add some cheer to the season with some easy home upgrades and festive decor!
Here are 3 ways to prep your home for the holidays:
Giving your home a deep clean prior to the arrival of guests goes a long way. Of course cleaning the main rooms of the house where guests will congregate first will allow you to feel more prepared, but doing a deep clean on corners and closets and other out-of-sight locations will help relax your mind so you can focus on spending quality time with your family, rather than worrying about what the guests think of your home. A clean home promotes a sense of well-being that will carry over into your holiday. Consider it your early spring cleaning.
Stock Up On Supplies
To avoid the unwanted stress of holiday shopping, try stocking up on necessary items well in advance. Items ranging from food, to household supplies, to holiday gifts can be purchased before the holiday season so that when the time comes you are already prepared. Generic gifts that can be given to anyone come in handy if you accidentally leave anyone off of your shopping list. Stocking up on needed holiday supplies in advance also allows you to avoid venturing out into a snowstorm because you ran out of toilet paper or grandma’s favorite canned cranberry sauce.
Regardless of what holiday you celebrate, decorations are always a staple of festivities. In addition to breaking out the usual menorah or Christmas tree, additional greenery will spruce up your home. Pine boughs, cedar, holly, and mistletoe naturally brighten the home and can be found either in nature or purchased from various stores. Making a homemade wreath is a fun activity for both kids and adults alike. Candles and twinkling lights pull everything together to create a magical holiday atmosphere.
