17 Nov Getting your home guest ready for Christmas 2021
Christmas is fast approaching and with it comes lots of visitors and overnight guests! We’ve put together some hints and tips on getting your home ready for your Christmas guests this year.
If you’re having guests to stay, make sure where they will be sleeping is prepared well in advance, allowing you time to enjoy the festive season without any last-minute panics.
Give the room a deep clean before your guests arrive so everything is fresh and smells great in time for their arrival. You could also add extra throws and cushions to help your guests feel cosy and warm. Be sure to keep yourself covered with a robust apron when cleaning.
Consider providing some extra luxury for your guests by supplying a bath robe or some miniature toiletries for their stay.
Ensure your guests have a glass for a late night drink, and a coaster to protect your bedside tables from spills and stains.
Provide some reading material, magazines or books, in case your guests didn’t bring their own and ensure their room has an adequate light for reading.
Set the scene at dinners together with warm colours and an inviting tablescape to get everyone in the festive spirit.
For Christmas cooking and baking together with friends and family, make sure that you have spare aprons and tea towels available for anyone wanting to get involved in the festivities.
Christmas music and carols are great for creating a festive atmosphere and helps to make your guests feel welcome.
For all of your Christmas linen needs, make sure to visit our online shop or come and visit us at our pop-up shop in Taunton before December 21 to say ‘hello’ and pick up all of your tableware before festive events begin.
