Do a Deep Clean

Event planning involves a lot of attention to detail, and that includes the cleanliness of your home. Before you invite people over for holiday entertaining, it's time to do a deep clean.

Make sure you vacuum and sweep the floors, dust your furniture, and clean the bathrooms thoroughly. When your home is fresh and clean, you'll feel great about inviting people over for holiday parties and more.

Create a Layout Ideal for Holiday Entertaining

Part of your party planning should include making sure that your living room and kitchen layout are conducive to guests. You don't want your friends and family bumping into the furniture, or into each other.

Take a close look at your living space and move some things around so that there's plenty of space for people to mingle, eat, and chat. An organized layout with a clear path for guests to walk will ensure that everyone has fun without feeling cramped or overcrowded.

Plan Ahead for Pets

If you have pets at home, you probably want them to celebrate the holiday season with you. However, rowdy pups or cats can become a hazard if they're around your guests.

Think about how you can keep your pets entertained and comfortable in another room until the party is over. If that's not possible, consider asking someone you trust to pet sit for you during the festivities.

Make it Merry and Bright

You don't necessarily need to do a whole home remodel to make your house feel festive and inviting. Add a few nice touches to the living room, bathroom, and dining room to give your space a cheerful touch. A red poinsettia plant in the center of your dining room table is a nice option, for example.

You can hang string lights, wreaths, or strands of beautiful garland throughout your home for a simple yet beautiful aesthetic. Of course, you can also never go wrong with a gorgeous Christmas tree serving as the centerpiece of your home.

Get Ready for a Festive Season

Keep these simple tips in mind, and your home will be more than ready for some fun holiday entertaining. With the right layout, a bit of decor, and a clean space, this holiday will be one you'll always remember.
