Our Holiday Gifts to You - Quick Tricks and Tips to Keep from Stressing when Hosting People for the Holidays.

Nice Scents
Hosting guests can be fun but also stressful at times. Having pleasant scents in your house can really set the tone for a fun and relaxing evening. Scented candles are always a great option to fill your home with your favorite smell! Try not to have too many different scents going at once as that may create an odd mix of smells that you weren't going for. If candles aren't your thing, simply having things cooking when people arrive will create a nice aroma and get everyones tastebuds going!

Another trick to de-stressing a get together is to keep the lighting plentiful but low. You don't want every overhead light in your home on when guests are there because it can feel a little cold or stiff. You want the vibe to be relaxing to you and your guests and low lighting helps create this. If your wondering how to achieve this feel, lamp lighting is always a great way to accomplish this and keep things soft and peaceful.

Allow Yourself Extra Time

One thing that can make hosting stressful is having a lot of last minute things to do right before guests should be arriving. Try to have all of your cleaning, getting ready, and cooking out of the way at least 30 minutes prior to guests arriving. This will allow you a bit of time to sit and relax before having to put your hosting shoes on!
