8 Tips for Getting Your Home Ready for the Holidays

While our team at Furniture Source International never wants to overlook any ordinary week or regular celebration, we know the holidays will be here before we know it. It is best to be prepared for the holidays and getting your home ready ahead of time, or at least having a great plan to fall back on, will help you enjoy the moments with family, friends, and loved ones through the entire season.

1. Declutter – The best way to start is to declutter your most frequently used spaces, especially those you may have guests or family seeing over the holiday season. Throw or give away items you don’t use, put up items that are spring and summer seasonal, and return items that don’t belong to their homes. If you need a little extra storage to tuck away some of these items, consider a hutch or side table with storage built in.

2. Scent – We shouldn’t forget that stepping into a space can be a multi-sensory experience, one that is easy to satisfy by lighting a hand poured candle from our store. With a number of fragrances to choose from, you can pick up some for your own home and some as gifts for all the holiday celebrations you are bound to attend.

3. Table scape – The dining room table or breakfast nook is a great way to set the tone and create a statement for you and your guests whenever you walk into your home. Using your favorite dishes or seeking out versatile Golden Rabbit dishes from our showroom will allow you to mix and match your favorite holiday colors with napkins, tablecloths, and other linens.

4. Houseguests – By setting the tone for a great stay, you could make your houseguests feel extra special when joining your family for the holidays. If you are still relying on hand me down sheets, consider a luxurious set and add a few throw pillows in a seasonal color.

5. Check the floors – With all the other tidying and cleaning, your floors can get overlooked. Take time to deep clean now, then focus on spot cleaning as needed. If your floor needs a covering or just extra depth added to your overall design, we carry Jaunty Rugs that will provide a beautiful and warm spot to mingle.

6. Warm things up – This applies for indoors or outdoors, by building a fire, you are automatically making your space feel like a place to linger and enjoy a beverage, time alone, or wonderful conversations. For outside, there are a number of fire pits and patio tables with an option for a fire pit built in.

7. Prepare the toast – Holiday time means mixing and mingling for most and beverages of all kinds are a great addition to your next gathering. Make sure your bar is fully stocked with glasses, mixing utensils, and Puro Verde Tequila.

8. Gift giving – It is never too early to begin tackling your holiday present list. By taking a walk through our store, you are sure to find more than a few items to carefully wrap and tuck away for your loved ones and maybe find something to add to your own list, too.
