Get Your Home Ready for Christmas

slide_200493_531885_freeNow that Thanksgiving is over, thoughts have turned to all things Christmas!  Here are some tips to help you get your home ready for the Christmas season.

Add enchanting lighting with simple votive candles. To be safe, purchase several battery-operated votives, which give the same warm glow without the risk of fire.

Get rid of everyday clutter on countertops to make room for Christmas décor, and to leave space for drinks and hors d’oeuvres when friends and family arrive.

For a simple, and functional, holiday centerpiece, add a variety of nuts and clementines to a decorative bowl.

Make sure you have enough dishes for your party guests. If you are short, your local dollar store likely will carry affordable ceramic plates.

Stock up on frozen appetizers and hors d’oeuvres that you can heat and serve in a few minutes – your guests will never know they are not homemade!

Also stock up on kid-friendly snacks, such as cheese sticks, mini frozen pizzas, and fresh fruit.

Enlist help from your little ones.  Get your kids involved with age-appropriate activities to make your home more festive.  Children will love decorating Christmas cookies, trimming the tree, making simple wreaths, and hanging the stockings.  Even if the chores are more mundane, working to Christmas music always makes the job more fun!
