Getting your home holiday ready

As Thanksgiving draws near, the faint whisper of Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas” grows ever louder. You know what that means: it’s time to start prepping your home for the holiday season!

Whether you’re hosting this year’s festivities or just cozying up for the winter, Pay Tgthr has some ideas to make the rooms in your home more festive, fun and inviting!

Warm vibes from the living room

For many of us, the living room is where we spend most of our time at home. Whether it’s a quiet night with your partner on the couch or hosting lively conversation with friends and family, the living room’s where it happens.

What better way to make the room more inviting (and fragrant!) than a holiday themed scented candle. Mike is particularly fond of Boy Smells holiday candle collection. The warm glow of a candle paired with the smell of cedar or juniper wafting in the air can make any home hygge-ready for the season.

Looking for some inviting tchotchkes to really revel in the season? Try adding some sleek, modern snowmen, a winter village or some faux pine cones to your decor to bring the season to life indoors. And comfy up that couch with a flannel throw blanket and fun seasonal pillow for a touch of warmth and fun.

Cooking for many, or just two

Holiday host duties can be exhausting. There’s dinner to be made, drinks to be poured and desserts to be served. But even if you won’t be hosting, your two should enjoy the holiday spirit every time you go to the kitchen!

Holiday-themed dinnerware, glassware, and serving plates all add a touch of spirit and fun to every meal you serve. Throw in some fun dish towels and a festive centerpiece, and you two are all ready for a party of five or a dinner for two.

No matter if the weather outside is frightful, your little corner of the world will be warm and inviting this winter. Don’t forget to take some time out of the hectic holiday season to spend quality time tgthr.
