During the holiday season, thousands of people will travel several hours to come home for the holidays. If you are trying to get your Atlanta, Georgia home ready for holiday guests, here are some tips:
- Festive Decorations – Of course decorations are important for creating a festive atmosphere. From a wreath on the door to a beautifully decorated tree, your guests will love the little holiday touches throughout the house. When decorating, don’t forget to find that perfect holiday scent. In addition to candles, sprigs of evergreen and fresh fruits are an easy way to add fragrance and style to a home.
- Guest Accommodations – Making your guests feel warm and welcome during their stay is as simple as including a cozy throw blanket on the bed, providing books and magazines for some bedtime reading, and making sure that fresh towels are easily accessible.
- Holiday Dining – One of the best parts about the holidays are coming together for meals. Having a beautiful centerpiece and holiday plates are great additions to any table. For the children’s table, include Christmas themed coloring pages and crayons for them to color once they have finished eating. Maybe they will stay seated a little longer while the adults visit and try to finish their meal. Don’t forget a paper or plastic tablecloth for the children’s table, so that if they miss the coloring sheet, crayon does not get on the actual table.
Getting your home ready for holiday guests can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. More than anything, your guests will just be excited to spend time with you and your family. These little “extras” will make their stay just a little more merry.
