We’re counting down to Christmas with a new holiday party tip, decorating idea or DIY project every day until December 25. Miss a day? See all the posts here.

For the first time ever, I’m housing guests at my home for the holidays. In the past, I’ve always been able to escape the chaos at night, but this year, my home is the center of the action. (We’ll see how this goes.) I’ve been so focused on getting gifts, doing last-minute decorating and actually enjoying the season that I haven’t even started preparing my home for visitors. From washing throw blankets and pillowcases to stocking the guest bathroom and loading up on snacks, there’s a whole list of things to do before guests arrive. Luckily, there are still a few days to get everything ready. Check out our tips below to get your home guest-ready for the holidays.
