Get Your Home Ready for the Holidays: 28 Day Challenge – Day 16
Today’s challenge is to prepare for overnight guests. Even if you are not expecting guests at this time, getting your home guest-ready will mean you can easily extend an invitation (and mean it) even at the last minute.
I don’t have a guest bedroom in my house, but that doesn’t stop us from hosting. In fact, last year at Christmas we had 10 overnight guests for a night! (That is a bit unusual, but I am fortunate to have a particularly large and laid-back family!) The reason this worked is that I thought through it all in advance to know who could sleep where, and was prepared with additional air mattresses, pillows and blankets.
Take time today to declutter your guest room or any areas of the house that could double as a guest room. Pull extra bed linens and pillows out of storage, and launder anything that needs it. Make a list of anything you may need to buy or borrow in order to accommodate your guests.
