With the holiday season well underway, many of us are preparing to host family and friends (again). That means that a season full of joy and happiness can quickly turn stressful. However, your team at Chair Fair is here to save the day! No, we’re not going to come to your home and cook and decorate, but we can save you time and stress.
One of the biggest concerns of hosting over the holidays is how you’re going to fit everyone into your home. Well, for most of us anyway. Frantically searching online for “a furniture store near me” has people making large impulse purchases that may not suit their actual needs. Here are a few tips from our experts to help you get through this hosting season:
Take an accurate headcount of your guests.
A common mistake when hosting is accounting for the entire list of guests that you’ve invited. Instead, count the people that are actually coming to the gathering. Remember, don’t assume! Even though your second cousin that you see only once a year is always there, it doesn’t mean that something came up and they’ll be attending.
Leave yourself time.
The gift of time is priceless during this busy time of year. By making a list and setting realistic expectations, you’ll save yourself being the “chicken with its head cut off.” Planning ahead will allow you to see all of the tasks at hand and create a schedule to accomplish them in a timely and stress-less manner.
Look for the moments that matter.
It’s easy to get caught up in the drama of the season. People are coming together that may not have otherwise. However, creating an inviting atmosphere in your home through décor, furniture placement, and lots of good food is a sure way to keep the smiles coming. Enjoy the happiness, and remember, if it doesn’t serve you, let it go!
Purchase only what is needed.
Going into unnecessary debt over the holiday season is something you’ll regret down the road. If you’re in your planning stages and realize you need a bit more furniture to adequately host your crowd, stick to a budget. Large pieces of furniture may not be the solution; instead, consider pub sets or bar stools to bring your family and friends together.
