Before your guest arrive for the holidays, I bet you have a few things to do. How about a checklist to help you out:

  1. Outside: Check to make sure that the outide is welcoming, cleaned up from the fall and ideally has a string of lights or two. Remember that hanging lights is a time investment, recruit a helper and load up your staple gun. Make sure your extension cords are rated for exterior use.
  2. Entry: You will want the lights nicely dim and a door with a colorful wreath.
  3. Common Areas: Think about  areas that can take roping, lighting and candles. Adding texture and light on a cold winter’s night is the holidays.
  4. Bathroom: Now this is where you can add some class… flowers and candles. Perhaps dim the light and add a lamp if that is possible.

We hope that you have a wonderful holiday in celebrating with your family and friends.

Here are even more ideas that might help you in organizing your space for the holidays.
