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.

For me, the holidays mean opening my home to family and friends for our annual Halloween party, Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve dinner. 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!
