Take It Easy!

Holiday time can be stressful, especially if you are expecting house guests . The key to being a successful host or hostess is preparation. 

  • Get Ready.  Prepare guest accommodations at least a week before your visitors are due to arrive.
  • Set Priorities.  Let your guests know about any work-related deadlines or priorities that will occupy your time while they are visiting. 
  • Keep Things Simple.  Plan easy-to-fix meals that don’t require a lot of preparation since your visitors will want you to spend time with them, not in the kitchen. 
  • Don’t Over Plan.  Allow your guests free time to come and go as they please and pursue their own interests. Don’t plan every minute of their visit. 
  • Don’t Do Everything Yourself!  Accept offers of help! Your guests will feel more relaxed if they know they have contributed to the smooth running of the household.
