Do a Deep Clean

A festive house for holiday entertaining is a clean house! Spend time deep cleaning and consider decluttering your home to create a festive holiday atmosphere. 

A deep clean means cleaning carpets and removing the dirt and grime in your home you might miss during your weekly cleanings. Clean drapes and furniture, and even move appliances in the process. If you struggle with cleaning, consider hiring a professional. 

Declutter bookshelves, dressers, closets, and even the kitchen pantry to prepare your home for the holidays and create less stress. Put everything in piles and decide what stays and what goes. You can always make donations or hold a yard sale to eliminate things you no longer need.

Make Decorations Stand Out

Holiday entertaining needs great holiday decorations! Lights, ribbons, fresh greens, trees, candles, and wreaths are all ways to spruce up your home. Pay attention to every part of your home – inside and out!  

Pick a style and run with it – whether it’s rustic, farmhouse, or even modern. Search online for photographs of what you find appealing and create a look with various decorations. 

You can always enlist the help of family and friends to help with decorating ideas. Sometimes window shopping can help with ideas. Professional decorators create these looks and are ripe for copying for your home!
