The holiday season is in full swing, and if my Facebook timeline is any indication there are TONS of holidays parties this weekend. Whether you are hosting something this weekend or next, there are a few tips that you can use to help make your holiday party a merry good time. I’m hosting Christmas myself this year, and I’ve already begun keeping track at every little thing we may need. From the guest rooms to the bathrooms, there is a checklist for all!
To help you simplify your holiday planning, I’ve included a printable for you to use to get your home organized in a hurry. Keep reading for a few tips to help prep your home for party time.
Holiday Hosting Tips
1. Prep the bathroom. From the toilet paper to the towels, your bathroom will see heavy traffic during the holidays. I try to switch out the shower curtains, stock up on hand soap, wash the bathroom rugs, and add in seasonal hand towels for decor. I also have a toilet paper storage container which keeps Charmin on hand. What’s great about the Charmin brand is that ROTO-ROOTER has given it a stamp of approval and promises a clog-free holiday!
Charmin offers a variety of toilet paper to suit your entire family’s needs including Ultra Strong or the Ultra Soft. I just like the double rolls. That means less trips to the supermarket to buy more TP and I never worry about running out!

2. Load up on the essentials. When you’re planning a party, sometimes the big things get forgotten. Whether it’s toothpaste or toilet paper, having an idea of everything you need will make party prep a lot easier. One thing that I always try to remember is to have enough ice for drinks and enough chairs for guests to sit in.
3. Write it down. Try using this Hostess Checklist to get your home ready for guests! Here’s a sneak peek at the printable:
There are categories for each room in your home! Let me know how this work for you.
4. Be gracious. Whether you’re the hostess or the guest, a party favor or small gift for the party host goes a long way.
Try baking cookies or handing out candy canes. It’s a small but simple gesture that spreads holiday cheer to all!
