Tips From An Organized Mind

Hosting For The Holidays? Here’s Some Tips To Get Ready

Hosting for the holidays can be both fun and challenging. If you’re hosting a holiday dinner, there’s a lot to do. Being organized will help you alleviate some of the stress associated with being the “Hostess with the Mostest”.

Here are some tips to ensure a successful and enjoyable holiday gathering:




Plan Ahead:

  • Start planning well in advance to avoid last-minute stress.
  • Create a checklist of tasks.
  • Make sure to create a timeline to get it all done.

Delegate Tasks:

  • Don’t be afraid to ask for assistance.
  • Delegate specific tasks to willing friends or family members.
  • Potluck-style gatherings can also ease the burden on the host by sharing the workload.
  • At the very least, ask your guests to contribute by bringing a side dish or dessert.

Create a Guest List:

  • Determine the number of guests you can comfortably accommodate.
  • Send out invitations early and request RSVPs so that you can plan accordingly.

 Plan The Menu:

  • Make a list of anything you need from the store(s).
  • Plan a well-balanced and diverse menu to accommodate different preferences.
  • Check with guests so that you can accommodate any dietary restrictions or allergies.
  • Label dishes with common allergens to help guests make informed choices.
  • Consider preparing some dishes in advance to reduce stress on the-day-of.
  • Have a variety of drinks available, including non-alcoholic options.

 Create A Festive Atmosphere:

  • Decorate with seasonal touches to create a warm and inviting ambiance.
  • Consider background music or holiday playlists to enhance the mood.

 Space and Seating:

  • Arrange seating to encourage conversation and mingling.
  • Make sure there is sufficient seating options.
  • Ensure there’s enough space for guests to move around comfortably and safely.


  • Plan some activities or games to keep guests entertained and involved.
  • For Thanksgiving go around the table/room and ask your guests what they’re thankful for.
  • For Hanukkah or Christmas host a gift giving exchange (ie, Secret Santa).

 Safety Precautions:

  • If guests will be drinking, make sure they arrange for alternative transportation or accommodations.
  • Be mindful of any potential hazards, especially if there are children or elderly guests.


  • Ensure your home is comfortably heated or cooled.
  • Ask your guests if there is anything they need.
  • Focus on creating a welcoming and enjoyable experience. 

 Technology Considerations:

  • Make sure your Wi-Fi password is available to guests.
  • Have an accessible charging station for phones and devices.


  • Consider enlisting or hiring help. It will be well worth it so that you can enjoy the evening and your guests. 

 The holidays are about spending time with loved ones. So, relax, enjoy and spend quality time with your loved ones during the holiday season!

 If you or anyone you know needs help with Organizing, Downsizing, Relocations, Estate Sales or Clearing a Property, let them know that we’d love to be of service!
