There is nothing more embarrassing than a dirty house when you have company. So before you begin decorating and preparing your bathroom to entertain, make sure that you give it a good old fashioned deep-clean. Make sure to scrub places that you wouldn’t normally think about such as the back of the toilet, around the tub, and all the nooks and crannies that don’t always get thoroughly cleaned. 

Find a Holiday Scent

There’s nothing like a familiar smell to remind people just what they love about the holidays. Pick an air freshener or candle to set the mood of your space. You have so many holiday scents to choose from. A gingerbread or sugar cookie scented candle or a peppermint air spray can go a long way and can make your space feel homey and inviting.

Break Out The Decorative Soaps

The holidays are the time to go all out when it comes to decorating your space. Part of this means swapping out your boring hand soap for beautiful, decorative soap that will make your guests feel extra special. Think “festive” when it comes to this step of decorating; find a soap in a fun holiday shape or with a gorgeous holiday smell.

Swap Your Linens

One quick and easy way to totally transform your bathroom is to switch out your regular hand towels for ones that are more seasonal. This can be towels that fall into a theme that feature things like angels, snowmen, Christmas trees etc. If you are looking for a more subtle approach, choose linens that simply fall into the Christmas color scheme- green, red, silver, and gold.

Stock Up

Another thing to consider during the holidays is that you are likely to have friends and family members staying with you at some point. It is important to take this into consideration when preparing your home, but especially when preparing your bathroom. Remember to have extra bath towels on hand that are fresh and clean just for your guests. It is also a good idea to stock up on supplies that they may have forgotten: disposable razors, travel sized toiletries, etc. The more prepared you are to entertain, the better off you will be for the holiday season.

Change Out Your Shower Curtain

If you are really looking to bring new life to your space, change out your shower curtain for one that is holiday themed. You can find all sorts of seasonal holiday-themed shower curtains online or at your local bath and bedding store. This simple flare of decoration will make your guests smile and will give your space a fun, light-hearted feel.

With the cold weather around the holidays, most everyone is suffering from rough, cracked or dry skin, especially on their hands. To accommodate this, buy some soothing holiday lotion. This will help your guests keep their skin soft and smooth and will make them feel right at home. In

Clean Out the Cabinets

You want your guests to feel right at home, and part of that is being able to find exactly what they need. This is a great time to organize your cabinet and drawers. Make sure anything your guests could possibly want or need like extra soap or toilet paper are easy to find. Taking this simple step to make your home extra guest-friendly will go a long way.


When it comes to entertaining, it is important not to forget about your bathroom. Follow these tips to get your bathroom ready for entertaining this holiday season.

Decorating Your Bathroom for Thanksgiving

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

With fall in full swing, it’s time to start decorating your home for the season if you haven’t already. Bathrooms are an area of the home that some people overlook in regards to decoration. Even if your bathroom is small, you can still incorporate festive decorations into your space. You can add a few simple touches or go for an all-out Thanksgiving theme in your bathroom. Here are our decorating tips to get ready for the season:

One of the simplest ways to decorate your bathroom for Thanksgiving is seasonal towels and washcloths. You can purchase Thanksgiving-themed bathroom décor almost anywhere. Choose linens decorated with things like turkeys, pilgrims, leaves, and cornucopias. For a more subtle look, simply replace your current towels with new orange, yellow, and red ones to fit the color scheme of fall.

If your bathroom has a window, find new curtains that coordinate with your new towels and linens. This will ensure that your color scheme is cohesive and that everything goes well together.

Candles, Candles, Candles

Another great idea is to place seasonally-scented candles, such as pumpkin or spiced apple, in your bathroom. You can light them every day or just for special occasions or when guests are over. Smells and scents can remind people of holidays past and build a festive ambiance.  To take things a step further, invest in candles that crackle and make bonfire-like noises to give your bathroom a cozy feel.

If you don’t want to invest in candles or are looking for something a little more outside the box, incense is also a great way to give your space a comforting smell. To avoid flames entirely, invest in a seasonal plug-ing. This will provide consistent bursts of scent throughout the day and you won’t have to worry about blowing anything out before you leave.

Soaps and other Scents

Seasonal hand-soaps are another fun way to decorate your bathroom. Try to “shop local” when it comes to this part of decorating. Finding cute boutiques and small vendors near your home will ensure that your soaps are unique and hand-made, giving your bathroom a warm and welcoming feel. Add a decorative soap dish and make this a focal point of fall display for your bathroom.

For an added bonus, find a nice fall themed lotion to put next to your sink as well. This time of the year is the perfect storm for dry skin and cracked hands. Help your guests out with a nice, soothing lotion.

Lighting

The lighting in your bathroom can also be changed for the holiday. You can purchase a seasonal night light for a small touch. For a more bold change, you can swap out the light bulbs in your bathroom to a soft orange. You can also put up string lights around your bathroom mirror. Choose from orange lights or ones that are shaped like pumpkins or turkeys. Another lighting idea is to place lanterns with either real or electric candles in them. Place a string of fall leaves and small pumpkins and gourds around the base to make it more fall appropriate.

Pumpkins and Gourds

One of the absolute easiest ways to decorate any space for the Thanksgiving and fall season is to stack up on pumpkins and gourds. You can choose varying colors, shapes, and sizes and arrange them in a fun fall display. For an extra fun touch, tie orange and gold ribbons around their stems. Pumpkins and gourds are cheap decor and will give your space an authentic feel.

There are many other simple touches you can add to your bathroom to decorate for Thanksgiving. Swap out any wall hangings you have for wall art featuring fall leaves, turkeys, pumpkins, and other harvest-related items.

If you have enough shelf or counter space, you can choose any of these super simple DIY projects:

  •       Fill a vase or urn with dried or artificial flowers such as sunflowers or mums. You will want to stick with a red, yellow, orange, brown, or deep purple palette. You can include small cornstalks or even cattails to help add dimension to your arrangement.
  •       Fill a glass vase or other type of container with pinecones.
  •       Fill a basket with pumpkins, gourds, and small cornstalks.
  •       Hang a welcome sign on the outside of your bathroom door that has a Thanksgiving theme.
  •       Hang doorknob decorations on the outside or inside of your bathroom door. Some decorations have bells inside them for extra effect.
