Messy Monday: Get Your House Party Ready in No Time

With the holiday season upon us, it's safe to say that company will be coming over at some point. Of course that doesn't mean that you need to keep your house immaculate at all times (which is nearly impossible anyways if you have small children). Actually, all you need is about 30 minutes & your house will look like you spent hours preparing for the arrival of your guests. 

Clear the clutter. Obviously picking everything up will make a huge difference, but if you don't have time to put it all away, don't worry. Pick a room & shut the door. The only time that this will not work, is if you just moved or remodeled your home. Everyone will want to see every inch of it then. 

Hit the "hot spots". Think of the areas where your guests will mostly hang out & give them a decent once over. (Living room, dining room, kitchen & the bathroom are the most common.)

Don't forget to sweep. Giving all of your floors a good once over with the broom, mop &/or vacuum will make a noticeable difference. 

Set the mood.  Light some candles, spray some festive air freshener, dim the lighting, set out a few holiday decorations if you haven't already & set out a platter of snacks. Your guests will think that you've been waiting on them to show up!
