My front porch finally has perfectly plump pumpkins surrounding beautiful mums in full bloom. The air is getting a little more crisp and a mug of warm apple cider sounds like the perfect evening treat. I love fall!
But wait… Christmas is only 11 weeks away! According to Pinterest’s stress-free holiday planning guides, I’m already 2 weeks behind.
We’re here to help with what we do best, home decor! While it may be just one piece of the to-do-lists of the holidays, we’ve put together a few home items you’ll want to get started on sooner-than-later. Plus, we have a fun giveaway at the end!
Planning for your guests
We mentioned in a recent post [here], that home renovations often take longer than you think. So here are a couple things to consider:
Make sure there’s plenty of room to sleep.
Is your extended family growing, or are you inviting more out of town guests than years past? Sometimes furniture can take 8 weeks or more to be delivered from when you order it. So if you’re thinking about a new sofabed, or guest room bedroom set, you’ll probably want to start your search.
Makeover the guest room
If you already have plenty of places for your guests to sleep but your guest room could use an update (or just a little fun holiday decor), start collecting your ideas and think about how to make your guests more comfortable when they visit. Could you use some warmer bedding, new window treatments, a bed lamp for evening reading or a bedside table? If you’re considering any custom updates (window treatments?) or ideas that may require a handyman (new light fixtures?) you’ll probably want to start talking to the professionals soon!
Create some cozy places for you and your guests
The holidays are a time of cuddling close to the ones you love. Sometimes, you need a little place to get away as well. Think about planning places to spend time with all your family together as well as a little relaxation corner for some quiet time.
We’re giving away this coordinated set of five decorative pillows perfect to spruce up your home for the holidays! These pillows are hand-crafted by Interiors by The Sewing Room, and will look great in your living room, guest room, bedroom or any cozy place that could use some holiday spirit.
