‘Tis the season for friends and family to come for a visit. If you are hosting holiday events at your home, you may start to feel a bit of stress over creating a warm, welcoming environment for guests. Don’t worry! Follow our simple tips for prepping your new Sereno home to get ready for greeting holiday guests heading your way!
Create a Grand Entrance! Your entryway is one of the first spaces guests will see when arriving at your home. One way to turn your everyday entryway into a grand one is to add a few holiday upgrades. Grab some seasonal foliage from your local garden department and decorate your front porch with gorgeous potted plants. Another quick way to upgrade your entryway is to clear away shoes by the front door and declutter the space. Provide a space for guests to hang their coats and pick out a new rug that represents your holiday style.
Kitchen Prep! As many know it, the kitchen is the heart of the home and your guests will probably be spending some time there. Perform a quick counter declutter before guests arrive, if you don’t use it every day, stash it away! Another simple tip that helps declutter the kitchen quick is to organize the area plates and cups are stored. Make sure guests feel welcome by showing them where all utensils are and if you’re really feeling domestic, set up a self-serve coffee station with cute holiday mugs!
Bathroom Update! Provide fresh bathroom linens for guests, if yours are looking shabby, grab some hotel-style white towels to hang for a finishing touch on the bathroom. Stock up on toilet paper and add some great smelling soap for guests to use in the shower. Better yet, welcome guests with a gift of artisanal soap to use during their stay. The little touches make a big difference!
When your guests arrive, the most important thing to remember is they are here to spend time with you. Don’t worry about keeping everything perfect. Use our simple tips to make things run a bit more smoothly and relax! Your Sereno home is gorgeous and guests will be excited to explore your new digs as is!
