Preparing your home for the holidays involves a combination of practical strategies and decorative touches. Here are some key steps to consider:


The day before guests arrive is no time to pull apart junk drawers or clean out linen closets. Walk through your home, put away any stray items, and give surfaces a quick dusting.

Deep Clean:

Pay attention to areas like bathroom floors, baseboards, and curtains. Don't forget high-traffic areas, which should be cleaned thoroughly.

Revamp Your Entryway:

This is the first thing your guests will see, so make sure it's inviting.

Stock Up on Essentials:

Always have paper towels, toilet paper, hand soap, lotion, home cleaning supplies and toothpaste advanced on hand. You wouldn't want to buy essentials in a rush hour.

Prepare Your Kitchen:

Stock the pantry and make freezer mealsUnplug smaller kitchen appliances if you're going on vacation.


Focus on main spaces where guests will spend most of their time. Work with your holiday decor, not against it.

Create a Wrapping Station:

If you'll be exchanging gifts, a designated wrapping area can help keep things organized.

A clean, organized, and festively decorated home is more than just a beautiful space - it's an invitation for joy, warmth, and unforgettable memories. With this guide, you're now equipped to transform your abode into a holiday haven that will be the talk of the town (and Aunt Sue's fruitcake). So roll up your sleeves, dive into the tasks at hand, and let the spirit of the holidays fill every nook and cranny of your home. Here's to making your home not just a place, but a feeling, a celebration, and a testament to the magic of the holiday season.

Happy Holidays!
