Don’;t fret over this one too much. We’;re not talking a deep clean, but put away stray mail, straighten towels in your powder roomfunny pillow cases, wipe down the counters. Think quick tasks that have a big payoff —; don’;t bring out your vacuum. My go-to routine involves fluffing the pillows on my sofa, clearing off the coffee table, wiping out the sink in the powder room, and folding bath towels so they look tidy.

Great lighting is the most impactful thing you can do to create a cozy, pretty vibe in your home. If you have overhead lighting on a dimmer, then dim it way down and turn on all lamps. I like to do this in all the downstairs rooms in case someone walks through the hall to the bathroom, they’;ll see pretty lamps on in the guest bedroom. No room in the house is dark which makes everything feel warm and cozy.

Another great way to spiff up your lighting? Pull back curtains, raise your blinds, or even open a window. Fresh air and plenty of natural sunlight are far more welcoming than a dark space. Embrace your home’;s natural lighting.

If you’;ve got a day or two warning, then bring some fresh flowers home from the grocery store. If not, I like to cut a single fern frond from the yard and put it in a small vase. The architectural shape is playful and the bright green color can’;t be missed. Another great option is to take a small potted plant from your yard (like an herb) and pop it into a cachepot. Forage your yard, we bet you’;ll find something just right.

Lighting a candle is a win in two ways. They give off pretty, soft lighting, and they’;ll make your house smell nice. We love things that serve two purposes!

A little background music creates a welcoming vibe, and your house will feel festive and ready for a party! I keep a couple of great playlists on my phone so I can always play it through bluetooth. It’;s easy, and requires no running around.
