Best Hosting Tips for the Holidays

If you are hosting this holiday season, you probably have a lot of preparation to do. This can include shopping for the meals and preparing them, preparing your guest bedroom, and ensuring you have everything ready for your guests, from a place to hang their coats to a place for the kiddos to hang out. Shelby Design Center offers lighting, flooring, window treatments, and more. Our design consultants can offer you help on all of the products that we offer. Below, we'll offer some tips for hosting for the holidays. Stop by today!

Meal Plan for Every Diet

It's considered great hosting when you have thought ahead about your guests' particular dietary needs and made accommodations. After all, no one likes showing up to a holiday gathering where food is served and they can't eat anything. Thus, be sure to survey your guests about any special dietary restrictions or considerations and plan your meals accordingly.

Have Snacks On Hand

Finger foods are almost a given at holiday gatherings, and they are a must for children who must eat more frequently than adults (and who throw temper tantrums if they're hungry). It's best to have a variety of snacks that are easy to grab. Consider items such as popcorn, trail mixes, pretzels, and small wrapped holiday candies to tide your guests over till meal time.

Make Holiday Cookies and Crafts

There's something about baking during the holiday season that gets everyone in good spirits. The wonderful scents of gingerbread and rising dough simply warms the heart. Get everyone in good spirits this holiday season with holiday cookies, decorating, and craft activities. While mainly geared towards the kids, the adults will most likely enjoy crafts, too!

Ramp Up Your Home's Lighting

Light during the winter season helps us to stay positive and not become glum because of the dark. This holiday season, having your home cheery and bright can make a real difference in the attitude of your holiday guests. Consider adding a wonderful floor lamp for extra light in the living room, recessed lighting in the kitchen, and a new chandelier in the dining area. Ask a design consultant for ideas today.

From festive candles and clocks to bowls, pictures, plants (think Poinsettia), and sculptures, you can truly bring out the holiday season with festive home decor.
