Are you expecting lots of guests at your holiday party? Navigating a crowded home can be difficult and sometimes not safe if you are not organized about it. Maintaining a clean, welcoming, fun, and festive residence can allow for everyone to enjoy a party without worry.
If you feel overwhelmed by the expectations of family and friends, don’t let this bring you down. Instead, have confidence in your hosting abilities. As you prepare to have those you love into your place of comfort, it is important to keep safety in mind. The last thing you need is for someone to get hurt during a time of celebration. Here are some tips to be a great host for your guests:
•Celebrations are supposed to be all about fun, not stress. One person can’t do everything alone.
•Ask guests if they have any serious food allergies before purchasing the food. This way, you can avoid serious medical issues.
•Don’t hesitate to ask for help with cleaning, food prep, cooking, etc. This way, you won’t be totally exhausted before the party even begins!
•Prepare beforehand if children are coming to your home. Put away all dangerous and leave around kid friendly activities to keep them occupied as the adults mingle.
•Just because it is a holiday party doesn’t mean you have to offer alcohol. Provide a variety of drinks, such as soda, sparkling water, and juice.
•Be prepared for potential disasters to occur. Remove slipping and falling hazards and don’t leave anything out that could cause an accident. With snowy and icy conditions in the winter make sure all paths and driveways are cleared and salted.
