Getting Your Home Prepped For Holiday Guests

The only “guest” who should surprise you for the holidays is someone who already lived in your home like a kid who was away at college or in the military. They already know the rules of the house and don’t have to be made to feel welcome; they already are. As for anyone other overnight guest, you need to do a little prep work to make them feel welcome. It’s what the holidays are all about. Here are some great ideas for getting your home prepped for holidays guests.

Freshen the Linens
