Hosting a Thanksgiving Day party at home? Prepare games, movies and turkeys. But don’t forget: house cleaning, first!
- Clean the common areas of the house.
The most to be focused on in a house cleaning are the most common areas that guests go to in a party: living, dining and and bathroom. These areas are sure to be needing attention to keep guests comfortable and relaxed. Be sure to organize everything. You might also consider rearranging these areas and making space in case you want to play games or watch your favorite movie. The wider the space, the better! And best if clean, too!
- Get the dining area ready.
Thanksgiving Day is known for its abundance of delicious dishes. Aside from the chance to display your cooking skills through those sumptuous recipes, it is important to set up everything you need in your dining area. Napkins and tablecloths need to be washed and pressed. It is also important to clean and sanitize utensils, and food containers should also be prepared. You’ll probably need to pull out some extra tables and chairs for the kids and other guests. Don’t forget to empty out your refrigerator to make way for the Thanksgiving food. Enjoying the food, not only because it’s delicious, but because the dining is well-prepared.
3.Prepare your guests’ room
Having guests stay over at your house is inevitable during Thanksgiving. A big celebration like this can be the time for friends and family from other places to come over. And this actually makes the celebration more fun. Provide them with fresh sheets and towels so they can rest comfortably. Do not also forget to prepare toiletries for them like bath gel, shower caps, toothbrushes, combs, shaving kits, etc.. A clean room is a nice way to end the celebration after a day full of cheers and fun.
4. Do some regular cleaning.
You can do some regular house cleaning like sweeping, mopping, and vacuuming the floors, cleaning the windows, and throwing away trash days before the celebration in order to lessen the work during Thanksgiving. In that way, you get to focus and prioritize necessary things on that day itself, avoiding having to do last-minute house cleaning.
