Christmas is all about family and relationships. So when the season to be jolly is near, you’ve got to prepare your home for visits from family and friends. While you can find a multitude of tips online about how to decorate your home for Christmas, you can rarely find practical tips to help you welcome guests and make them feel at home. So here is a brief list.

The Living Room

If your man cave, your kitchen, your mini library, your game room or recording studio has been the center of life around the house for the entire year, that’s surely about to change. This season, your living room will be the central focus.

Your living room will most probably be the place where everyone would gather around and chat, take group photos, open presents, welcome guests, play family games and party. Hence, it is important that you get it ready for the celebrations.

Declutter. Declutter. Declutter. Of course, you can put up the tree and other decorations. But you have to get rid of other stuff too. At least, until the holidays are over. Make the room more spacious, move furniture aside, if you must. Wouldn’t it be great to have your own dance floor?

Make it cozy and comfortable for anyone coming over to spend days with you over the holidays, or for those who want to crash for the night after an awesome party. Don’t leave this at the last minute or you might forget and panic later.

Your kitchen will be extra busy this season if you have folks coming over. Don’t forget to confirm beforehand who among those on your guest list are coming and for how long. Then do your shopping early and don’t run out of ingredients. Because what kind of feast would it be without the most delectable dishes?

Try to get some cookies, chips, fruits and anything ready to eat aside from the ingredients you need to boast about your latest recipes. Trust us. These will come really handy real soon. Stock up on cleaning tools and materials as well. You will have a lot of cleaning to do later on, so it’s best to prepare for the worst.

Those are the three major areas that you need to put your focus and effort on. If you get these set up really early, then you will have time to do other exciting stuff like adding more
