Our interior blinds specialists share their top tips for hosting this Christmas

Is it your turn to host this Christmas? We’re here to help ensure that the day runs smoothly and your guests are well-fed, happy and comfortable. Christmas is a time for celebration and spending time with your loved ones; your home might feel a little cramped and your oven might be full to the brim, but everyone’s in good spirits and there is magic in the air! Make sure the stress of hosting doesn't dampen your festive spirits with the following tips.

Take the stress out of hosting with these tips and tricks...

Create a To-Do list
Lists are a great way to get all the little jobs niggling away in your head out and in order. Make yourself a to-do list of things you need to do in the run-up to Christmas to ensure everything is ready for your guests to arrive. 

Prep vegetables in advance
If you’re the one cooking Christmas lunch, you’ll be spending more than enough time in the kitchen for one day. Save yourself some time for relaxing on the day by chopping and peeling your vegetables the day before – you’ll thank yourself later!

Organise sleeping arrangements
The last thing you need is to find out that relatives you thought were going home, are actually planning to stay the night at the last minute! Prepare in advance by washing your spare bedding, clearing space for blow-up or fold-out beds and ensuring you’ve got blackout blinds or curtains ready in your spare bedroom.

Buy for every possible eventuality
Hosting your family and friends over Christmas requires a lot of second-guessing as to their dietary requirements and tastes. Prepare yourself for all outcomes by stocking up on variety of choices for fussy eaters to choose from!
