How to Prep Your House for Holiday Guests

November 17, 2016

Mi casa es su casa, right?

We can’t stress this enough: the importance of helping your guests feel at home during the festivities is huge! As the holiday host or hostess, you may feel like you have a lot on your plate. Don’t worry—we’ll make this easy for you! Here are a few final touches that will bring your guest bedroom, bathroom and living room to a whole new level of merry and bright.

The Guest Bedroom

When decorating your guest bedroom for the holidays, remember one word: flannel. There’s no secret why this wonder weave is considered a winter-time favorite; it’s warm, it’s cozy and it’s incredibly soft. Lucky for you, we rolled out our brand-new flannel bedding in preparation for the cold weather. Need more convincing? You can read about why Boll & Branch flannel has no competition in our blog post!

For this winter wonderland look, dress your guest’s bed in our flannel sheet set, hemmed duvet cover and flannel pillowcases—all in white. Mixing flannel and sateen bedding is an easy way to play with textures, especially when you can’t decide which type of bedding you love more! When the bed is set, consider draping white Christmas lights across the ceiling or around the headboard for a dreamy, wintry escape.

The Guest Bathroom

Fresh towels are going to be key when enhancing your holiday bathroom decor. Stack our plush white and pewter bath towels neatly on your vanity, and place a holiday ornament either on or near the towels. Other suggestions include draping brightly colored ribbons or a few pine cones over the towels!

The Living Room

This is generally where most of your household’s festive decor is, but there’s no harm in adding something bright and cheery to wrap it all together! Our classic cable knit throw in red is just the thing. And just like the rest of our products, the cable knit throw is made with soft, 100% organic cotton!
