We’re making holiday planning easy! Here’s a handy holiday checklist to make sure you’re all set to eat, drink + be merry with your friends + family, all with a little help from the #mywestelm gallery.
1. Get your house ready.
Got guests coming to stay? Make sure you’ve got their room ready + looking cozy.
2. Stock up your bar.
Eat, drink + be merry are the official rules for holiday season. A well-stocked bar cart is a sure fire way to keep your guests on track for doing just that. Click here if you need some cocktail inspiration?
3. Ingredients roll call.
You’ve got your menu planned out but have you got everything you need to pull it together? Go through your menu + check your fridge is well-stocked to avoid that last minute dash to the grocery store.
4. Lay the table.
Pull your table together the day before your celebrations. Have you decided how you’re decorating it? Use things that are readily available – winter leaves make for a great (and FREE) place setting decoration and gourds + pumpkins are great for centerpieces.
5. Prep the kitchen.
Get those kitchen counters clear + put all your serving dishes to one side so they’re easy to grab!
Once your friends + family are around you, make sure you kick back + relax. A frantic host makes for unsettled guests!
