Preparing Your Home for the Holidays

The holidays are a time to reunite with family and friends and celebrate! Make your home a fitting space by cleaning and displaying festive decorations. Take care of any minor or major plumbing or electrical repairs but wait to start any major renovations or remodeling projects until January or February when stress from the holidays has subsided. Polish off your "holiday home" with a few tips and tricks found below!

Indoor:

Decorate with candles, pinecones, seasonal fruits and vegetables (like pumpkins or gourds), festive table runners, and more! Indoor herb gardens give you the opportunity to garden year-round, but also add vibrancy to the fall and winter home. There are so many seasonal decorations that can only be used once annually; take advantage of the opportunity!

Clean and organize your home, especially if you are expecting holiday visitors! Wooden chests or woven baskets are an easy way to hide everyday clutter. Deep clean bathrooms, the kitchen, and windows for a sparkling home guests will admire. Replacing burned out light bulbs and cleaning the microwave, coffee maker, and other small appliances also helps.

Outdoor:

Decorate with string lights, set out a welcome mat, display a fall wreath and later a winter one, rake leaves and display potted plants or wooden holiday themed yard décor. White or colored bulb string lights should be reserved for Christmastime, but simple clear bulbs around the front door or strung along porch rails looks great for fall.
