'Tis the Season

Welcome Back Blog Readers,

As we are all aware the holidays are approaching and it’s been my experience that I see my clients and friends as well as family running around at the last minute like “turkeys with their heads cut off.” Being in the profession of wallcovering and interior design, order is very important. These are a few of my tips for getting organized for the holiday season.

The first item on the list is making sure your table linens are cleaned and your silverware is polished and your china and serving pieces are already to go, and your dining and living rooms have enough seating for all of your guests. Second on the list, try and do a preliminary food shopping trip before-hand; for example, the wine, the food condiments, which makes it easier to go in at a later date and buy the actual food for the meal. Third on the list is calling up your neighborhood florist for the centerpiece for your holiday meal. One thing you don’t want to do at the last minute is put together a floral arrangement right before your guests arrive. The fourth tip is getting the guest room prepared by checking your bed linens and the towels in the guest bathroom and freshening those up. Nothing is more embarrassing than having a guest use towels that are discolored and worn or mismatched sheets!

Apple pies, jingle bells and snow are fast approaching; don’t be left in the lurch at the last minute. Take action now to be prepared for a fabulous, flawless and stress-free holiday season. Follow these fast tips to get ahead of the grind and have time for the important things, like time spent with your guests and making those delicious meals. It’s never too early to start preparing for this special time of year.

So, as I always say folks, “Don’t be afraid to decorate!” Or in this case, don’t be afraid to be too organized!
