Get Your Home Into the Holiday Spirit

The holidays are filled with endless invites to dinners, parties, and family get-togethers. If you’re hosting a festive fete this winter, there are a few things you can easily check off your to-do list to make your guests feel welcome in your home.

Keep Your Cupboards Stocked
The holidays can sometimes bring out the worst in people, especially when it comes to shopping. Things may fly off the shelves sooner than you think if you’re in search of ingredients for your holiday meal or custom cocktails. Shopping a few days before the event will ensure that you’ll have all you need to serve your guests something special without running out.

Deck the Halls
Regardless of what you celebrate this season, decorating adds a whimsical touch to any get-together. You can update your traditional holiday decor in new, innovative ways. Try placing some ornaments in clear bowls and vases. Light small candles at different elevations for warmth and variety. Use pinecones and seasonal plants as part of your holiday display.

Let the Music Play
Greet your guests with the sounds of the season with a customized holiday playlist. If Bing Crosby and the traditional crooners don’t lift your holiday spirit, search for unconventional covers of your favorite classics. Because many artists release holiday albums, your search could lead you to new songs that become your own tradition for years to come.

Set the Mood With Scent
Scent is the closest sense to memory, and making any occasion memorable is easy with Glade’s new Winter Collection of candles, oils, and room sprays. Whet your guests’ appetites with the scent of Apple Cinnamon—and the promise of apple pie for dessert. Create a winter wonderland with the fresh fragrance of Spruce It Up and some smiling decorative snowmen around the house.
