With the holiday season quickly approaching, small gatherings of friends and family make hosting par for the course at this time of year. While time with the ones you love is a joy and a blessing, the pressures of keeping the family comfortable and entertained can often feel overwhelming. Between cooking family meals, cleaning and organizing your home, and coordinating entertainment and socially-distanced activities to keep your guests entertained, the holidays can make for both joyful and stressful moments. 

Space

This year, preparing your home is crucial to ensuring that you can enjoy the company of your friends and family, free of stress and worry. Perhaps the most important guests you’ll be hosting this holiday season? If you answered in-laws, we hear you! Impressing your mother-in-law by being the ‘hostess with the mostest’ can be a stress-inducing factor during the holiday season, but with added calmness, it doesn’t have to be.

Step 1: Give it a Deep Clean

If you haven’t had guests in a while, you’ll likely want to give the space a quick refresh. Change the sheets, dust, sanitize, and vacuum to get your guest room ready for hosting your in-laws.

Step 2: Break Out the Nice Linens

If you don’t normally have guests staying in your spare room, you may not have prioritized outfitting the space with nice bedding. When your in-laws are in town, it is time to pull out all the stops and make your guest room as comfortable and luxurious as possible. Dress your bed with plush pillows, sheets, and comforter to transform your guest room into a luxurious getaway for your visitors.

Step 3: Keep Clutter to a Minimum

If you normally use your guest room as a space to store and stow extra clutter and miscellaneous items, make sure to tidy the space before your guests arrive to make them feel as comfortable as possible. Including decorative bins and baskets that double as functional storage is a great way to disguise any mess.

Step 4: Make it Cozy

Our guest rooms can sometimes take a back seat when it comes to creating a polished, homey space. To create a cozy, peaceful atmosphere in your guest room, a little decor can go a long way. Accent the space with simple elements like seasonal throw pillows, blankets, scented candles, and greenery (authentic or faux) to make the space feel complete and comfortable.

Step 5: Stock your Guest Bathroom

Don’t overlook your guest bathroom! Take this visit from your in-laws as an opportunity to stock the space with nice toiletries, air freshener, shower linens, bathroom tissue, and maybe even a toothbrush and toothpaste. Keep spare hair tools under the sink for convenience, in case your mother-in-law forgot her own.

Step 6: Prepare Closet and Drawer Space

During a safe, extended stay with close relatives, there is nothing worse than living out of your suitcase. Many people opt to use their spare closet and furniture to store out-of-season clothes, bulky coats, and other miscellaneous items, but when guests are in town, make sure there is enough space to accommodate their personal belongings. Clear out some space in the closet and dresser drawers for your in-laws to neatly store their clothing in an easily accessible way.
