Holiday Home Tips| 3 Day Blinds

As the last signs of summer fade away and fall is rapidly upon us, I find myself caught somewhere between excited and anxious with the holiday season approaching. The widely agreed upon stereotype of the holiday season is- family, warmth, giving, receiving, joy, thankfulness, and feasting. That’s where my excitement for the holiday season stems from. On the other hand, less popularized notions of the holidays are- stress, uncertainty,  perfectionism, and exhaustion. Hence my feeling of anxiety toward the holiday season.

While I love having guests in my home this time of year, preparing my home for company be a bit overwhelming. Over the years I have found a few easy tips on how to prepare your home for the holidays that I am excited to share with you!
