With friends and family coming over to celebrate, we know you're likely looking for ways to quickly spruce up your home and create a warm, inviting atmosphere.
At Abboo Candle Co, we believe our candles, room sprays, and reed diffusers are essential to set the mood and make your guests feel relaxed and comfortable.
We're sharing 5 simple tips to help you spruce up your home so you can feel confident hosting guests this holiday season.
1. Spruce up your Entrance:
Your front door is the first thing your guests see. Decorate your entrance with a festive wreath or garlands. Add a cheerful welcome mat. If possible, have a place that is easily accessible for guests to remove shoes and coats or offer to take their belongings to a safe space, like the guest room or a closet.
2. Set the Ambiance with Scent:
Nothing creates a cozy atmosphere like the flickering flame of a beautifully scented candle. Place them strategically in your living room, dining area, and bathroom to infuse your home with delightful aromas. Opt for scents with cinnamon, vanilla, or pine to evoke the holiday spirit. We suggest our Balsam and Cedar, Pine and Eucalyptus, Orange Peel and Clove, Smoked Vanilla and Oak or Winter Berries and Mint. A flickering flame combined with a heavenly scent will instantly make your guests feel calm and welcome.
For areas where a flameless option may be preferred, we recommend using a wax melt warmer or our room sprays and reed diffusers. Reed diffusers can easily be tucked away in corners of larger rooms to help carry the fragrance throughout your home.
3. Keep it Clean and Clutter-free:
A well-organized space feels welcoming and airy. Clear unnecessary items from your living areas. Organize and make space for your guests to move freely and comfortably.
4. Cozy up the Living room:
Add warm, comfortable throws on your couch, extra pillows, and make sure the room is well-lit. Guests may feel uneasy asking for a throw blanket, but if you have them readily available for guests to grab as they desire they are sure to want to snuggle up. A cozy space is an inviting space, and your guests will appreciate your attention to comfort.
5. Set the Table with Style:
Lastly, set your table with a festive tablecloth, candles, and holiday decor. Make sure your table setting complements the overall decor and theme of your home. A well-set table shows your guests how much you appreciate their presence.
With these simple tips, welcoming your guests will be a stress-free and enjoyable task. Remember, your home is a reflection of your warmth and hospitality. A friendly hug and a cheerful smile when guests arrive can set the tone their visit and make them feel welcomed.
