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.

4 Easy Ways To Have An Organized Christmas

By | Tips for the Home, Uncategorized | No Comments

By now, your mind is probably focused on the forthcoming festive season. Many people look up to the holidays to have fun with their friends, families or relatives and you are not alone. However, some of them get disappointed as a result of poor organization. If you want to have an organized Christmas season, you have to be prepared in advance.
Preparing the menu

You need to know the type of meal you will be preparing for your guests on Christmas Eve and thereafter. Foods such as glazed ham or roasted turkey are highly recommended. For lighter foods, you can go for barbecued seafood and freshly shucked oysters. Do not wait until the last minute to start shopping because you may not make the right decisions while under pressure.
Decorating your house

You need to have a specific theme when decorating your house for Christmas. For instance, a white and silver theme can be implemented by baking biscuits or cakes topped with white icing and silver cachous. Creativity and simplicity is all that is needed when looking for the right theme that suits this festive season.
Preparing gifts

One of the best ways to be prepared upfront during the Christmas season is by using a closet gift inventory. This technique allows you to keep track of bought-ahead gifts so that you may know the ones that should be offered to your friends, families or relatives. You will also know where they have been stored, and this saves you money that would have been used to buy new gifts. You can now prepare and pack your gifts according to their recipients both locally or internationally. For best results, use a pair of scissors, wrapping paper, tape, tags and ribbons to design and pack the gifts.
Personal preparation

Even if you manage to prepare your house, meals or gifts on time, you still need to ensure that you are also well-organized at the personal level. You need to know the type of clothes or jewelry you will wear on Christmas day, during dinner or other fun activities with your guests. Look for something decent that fits you perfectly and makes you feel comfortable. By following these simple Christmas organization ideas, you will have a wonderful festive season with your loved ones.
