Do you host parties during the holidays? As you may know, there are many things to do before hosting a party. It’s not just prepping the food or getting the table ready. Those are tasks that need completing the day of the party. I’m talking about the things to do before the day of the party to help you keep your stress at bay. This post will help you get everything ready for your upcoming holiday party.
Start with organizing your kitchen.
1st Day: Go through each cabinet.
2nd Day: Take out everything from the pantry and check for expired or opened packages.
3rd Day: Empty refrigerator and go through all the opened bottles. Get rid of items you don’t want or have expired or have a growing fungus on it.
4th Day: Visit your serving platters section. Weed through the platters you wish to use and place them on top.
5th Day: Visit supplies and equipment in the baking area. Review and restock this area with missing items.
6th Day: Visit supplies, pots, and pans in the cooking area of your kitchen. Replace any things you may need for the holiday parties.
Now on to the guest bathroom and bedrooms.
7th Day: When guests stay over, review and gather the items for bedding and towels.
8th Day: Visit the bathroom they would be using and determine if you need to get new towels for their visit.
9th Day: Go through your bedroom and clear out any item on the floor that doesn’t belong there. Put these things away.
10th Day: Go through the additional bedroom and clear out the floor or surface clutter that may have been left there over the year.
It’s getting closer to the party date, so you need to visit the dining area.
11th Day: Review the dinnerware and make sure you have enough for the party.
12th Day: Decide if you are going to use paper or actual plates. Do you have enough of them?
13th Day: Will there be table clothes? Cloth ones or paper ones?
14th Day: Do you have enough seating in the space? Where will you put everyone?
Now, it is time to determine the meal. It’s amazing how many things need completing, right? Visit the previous post to get information on how to decide your menu and make your holiday great.
I hope this helps you get your home organized quickly and with as little stress as possible. Feel free to share with family and friends that may host parties each year.
