the living room will be the center of the party, adding decorative touches to mantle, tables and shelves will give the room the beautiful feel you want. Swap out your light throws for warm cozier winter ones. Most of us do, but if you don't have an area rug, adding one for the winter months will warm up the room. Possibly host a tree decorating party, of course when you have little ones at home they are enough for some to handle. Do 2 trees like I do at home, one for my breakable more adult ornaments, and a kid friendly tree the kids get to do in our family room. Adding candles on the mantle, or to your dinning table and around your house creates ambiance and mode lighting. Flamless LED candles are now just as amazing, I have a few from Pottery Barn set on a timers and I have more compliments on them, you can place them in glass holders, on your mantle, under jars with no risk of fire, injuries or burns,
In the Bedrooms, for your guest coming to stay, clean all your linen, or better yet get some fresh one, and add an extra throw or blanket for those cold nights so your guest can be warm. Creating a little basket with magazine, soap, body wash and even little mints will make them feel right at home.
Bathrooms and Powder Rooms- clean, clean, clean...That's my biggest tip. get down on your hands and knees and clean those hard to reach spots, scrub the tile, don't want your guest to be freaked out my moldy bathroom surfaces. Stock up on hand soaps and even add hand lotion since winter brings on the dry cracked skin.
