Sometimes, it can seem as though we simply don’t have enough time to prepare for Christmas- which can leave us feeling rather stressed and unprepared. A great way to combat feeling stressed is to try and prepare as much as possible when it comes to your Christmas event. Here are some ways to prepare in the lead up to Christmas:
Make a Plan:
The phrase as old as time is ‘fail to prepare or prepare to fail’. If you have a plan of what needs to be done, then this will leave less chance for you to forget things.
Do a Deep Clean:
If you are having guests stay over at your property, then it’s important that you do a deep clean before people come over. Make sure that you pay special attention to rooms such as the bathroom, bedrooms and kitchen. If people are staying over, then ensure that you have fresh sheets on the bed for them to sleep on, and that they have all the toiletries they may need. It’s a good idea to also make sure that there is adequate storage for them to put their belongings in while they are staying over.
Set the Table:
One thing you should look at doing to prepare for Christmas, if you want to make your life easier, is to set the table before your guests come over. Not only will this save time when it comes to preparing and making sure everything is organised, but it will also make your guests feel that extra bit festive when they walk into your house and see that the table is decorated festively.
Make Sure the Rest of Your House is Decorated:
A great way to make sure that your house looks and feels festive and is also one less thing to worry about when your guests come is to have all of your Christmas decorations up and prepared. Decorating our houses for Christmas takes quite a lot of time, so if you do it before your guests come over this will be one less thing for you to worry about.
Try Prepping the Easy Bits of Your Meal:
Although you might not be able to make everything fully for your meal, there are some things you can do to make the cooking time less. Smaller bits of eating, or things that can rest for a long time- such as soups, stuffing, gravy and most desserts can be made in advance. Therefore, making these beforehand is an easy way to tick some things off your list to ensure that you don’t have to spend a lot of time worrying about prepping your food.
