Entertaining Tips for the Holidays {Glade®}

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Glade®, all opinions are mine.

I have FIVE children, so whether or not I formally throw holiday parties , I entertain for the holidays. My kiddos expect a lot during the holiday season, just like I did, and my husband and I try not to disappoint.  We want them to enjoy the season, learning that it’s a time of giving and not just receiving.  We have a lot of little traditions in our home that help foster this idea of seasonal entertaining to help foster giving, and here are our top tips for keeping our house entertainment ready day to day:

Top Entertaining Tips for the Holidays

Decorate

Decorations are a must.  Decorations remind everyone that it’s the holiday season.  Putting decorations out, arranging them just so, creating new crafts to add to the collection year to year, all foster a sense of tradition and remembrance so that when one passes them over and over they don’t forget the purpose of the holiday season.

Scent

Scent is my favorite secret weapon.  Nothing says holidays like warm scents in the home like fresh baked goodness!  Since I don’t bake every day, I rely on scents to help make my home feel more inviting.  Plus, it cuts down on calories from baking.  {{smiling}}  This year I’ve been using one of new holiday scents by Glade® called Sweet Holiday TreatTM

.  It smells like toasted nuts, cocoa and caramel all swirled into one.  It’s heaven to my nose.

Music and Movies

My kids love, love, love watching Christmas movies to get into the holiday spirit.  I find that listening to holiday music when I am entertaining really helps set the tone for the party or get together as well.

Clean

If you are going to entertain, keep it clean.  That’s my motto, and I’m sticking to it.  Everything is just easier when it’s clean and there isn’t any clutter.  I think better on clean.  {{BIG SMILE}}
