Creating a Warm Welcome—Preparing Your Home for The Holidays with McCall Homes

As the leaves change colors and the air becomes crisp, the holiday season is fast approaching, and there’s no better way to kick off the festivities than by hosting the holidays in your new McCall home. Whether you’re a seasoned host or a first-time entertainer, preparing your home for this special occasion can be a joyful and rewarding experience, so read on for the perfect way to transform your space into a welcoming haven for all of your loved ones this holiday season. 

Deep cleaning and decluttering

Before you dive into the fun of decorating and cooking, start with a clean slate. Deep clean your living spaces, and don’t forget to pay extra attention to all of the high-traffic areas throughout your home including your bathrooms, living room and dining room. Decluttering not only makes your home more visually appealing, but it also creates a more comfortable environment for your guests. 

Since the holidays are centered around a delicious feast, you’ll also want to make sure that your kitchen is well-prepared for the culinary adventure ahead. Clean and organize your space, ensuring that you have all the necessary cookware and utensils. At McCall Homes, our modern kitchens offer homeowners ample counter space and high-quality appliances, making meal preparation a breeze, even during the busy holiday season. 

Festive decorations all around

Next, it’s time to set the stage for a memorable holiday with festive decorations, so embrace the festive colors and bring the outdoors in with seasonal touches. First, create a welcoming atmosphere from the moment your guests arrive by adding a festive doormat, arranging pumpkins or potted mums by the entrance and perhaps hanging a seasonal wreath on the front door. Our thoughtful designs within our new McCall homes include spacious entryways, allowing you ample room to make a stylish first impression. 

The dining table is another area you won’t want to skip over as it is the centerpiece of every holiday gathering. Consider using autumn-inspired tablecloths, napkins and dinnerware, and try incorporating natural elements like pinecones, acorns or small branches for a stunning rustic touch. All of our dining spaces throughout our floor plan designs provide the perfect backdrop for creating a beautiful and inviting table setting, so don’t be afraid to let your personality shine throughout your holiday decor. 

Comfortable spaces for your guests

Sometimes the holiday gatherings are longer than just one night, so when you’re playing host to overnight guests during this festive season, ensuring that the sleeping arrangements are both practical and comfortable is an important step to getting your new home ready for the holidays. Fresh linens go a long way in elevating the overall experience, and for those chilly winter nights, having extra blankets readily available is a thoughtful gesture that won’t go unnoticed. It’s also a great idea to consider placing a small basket of toiletries in the guest bathroom, stocked with essentials such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoos and conditioners—making all of your guests feel right at home. 

Home for the holidays

This holiday season, create lasting memories in your new McCall home by taking the time to thoughtfully prepare for the festivities. From a clean space to festive decorations and a delicious feast, the perfect holiday celebration begins with a welcoming and well-prepared home.
