Set for Success

One way to leave a lasting impression during dinner-time is to set up some specially made place settings. Picking a color scheme and sticking to it is important; natural and neutral colors are a favorite for fall. To really make your guests feel special, consider creating DIY nametags to add a personal touch to each place setting.

Pro tip: If you’re in a pinch for table décor, take advantage of the great outdoors. Using green pine branches and pine cones to line a simple table runner is a great way to add a decorative edge to your table.

Clean You Can Count On

Some holidays are just harsher than others on your appliances–especially the dishwasher. With the number of dirty dishes created by traditional holiday dinners, you’re going to need a dishwasher you can count on to keep your cutlery clean. Investing in a new model with adjustable racks and quicker cycles means less time loading dishes and more time for holiday fun with the family.

Pro tip: Opt for a dishwasher that has a soil sensor, which will automatically detect how much water and energy is needed for the cycle depending on the soil level of your dishes, ensuring they come out crystal clean every time.

Step It Up

After a busy summer, stair carpeting can start to look a little rough. If your stairs have seen better days, it might be smart to refresh your carpet before your guests arrive for the holidays. Select soft carpet that has built-in stain resistance and soil protection to keep it looking clean for years to come.

Pro tip: When purchasing carpet for your stairs, look for products that feature zero moisture absorption and a spill and soil shield. This will help block pet odors and other stains as well as make for easy clean up!

Space Savior

Hosting multiple guests from out of town? If you’re short on sleeping space, the basement can be a perfect place to absorb some of the overflow. Just make sure to have enough fluffy pillows, blankets and beds for all. That way, the lasting impression you leave will be how accommodating you were, and not an achy back. Nothing makes for a happy holiday time like a good night’s sleep.

Pro tip: Aside from adding pillows, a quick way to make your basement feel more cozy for your guests is to add warm light. Add a few floor lamps or table lamps around the room to create a warm welcoming glow.
