|Ready Your Home For Holiday Guests|
|Flower Holidays, Occasions & Parties - Christmas Flowers|
The holiday season brings with it great meals, presents, beautiful decorations and guests… lots and lots of guests coming and going. Holiday guests -- be they family members or friends -- often show up early, stay late or even pop by unexpectedly. And with them can come hectic, harried moments as you rush to get your house company-ready.
Organizing expert Vicki Norris calls this phenomenon the “dash and stash” -- when we frantically rush around hiding clutter, hanging up coats or even strategically placing a plant or floral arrangement before opening the door. “I recommend people strive to keep the most visible spaces of their home organized 24/7. It’s not nearly as hard as it sounds,” says Norris, author of “Restoring Order to Your Home.”
While your family room probably is your home’s superhighway, a few tweaks can eliminate those piles of roadway rubbish, such as toys and magazines. And quick fixes that yield permanent results can help ensure your entryway (the natural “drop zone” for your family’s coats, shoes, and keys) doesn’t become an unruly hazard.
Family Room or Living Room
And don’t be a litter bug! Keep surfaces such as ottomans and tables clear, and beautify the room with flowers or a plant to reclaim the space and make it a nice place in which to spend time -- both for you and those holiday guests.
