Prepping Your Ventura Home for Thanksgiving Guests!

by The Blake Mashburn Group

Hosting the big feast Thanksgiving feast? No worries! Get your Ventura home ready for all your family and friends. Follow these simple tips to prep your home for the holiday and keep your guests happy and comfortable this Thanksgiving!


1. Declutter!

With more people in your house than usual, you are going to want to take advantage of all the space that you can. Go through and remove unnecessary clutter. Put these items in a closest or storage space until after the holidays. Make sure to clear off counters and tabletops.

2. Focus on the foyer!

The foyer is going to be your guests first impression of your home. Create a welcoming space for them to enter. Protect your floors from the increased food traffic with a rug. Add a seat so guests can easily remove their shoes. Create areas for guests to place their outdoor items that are out of the way but still easily accessible.

3. Get your kitchen ready!

Your kitchen is going to be seeing a lot of action on Thursday. Make sure that you have plenty of space to work and can easily access all of the tools you need. To create extra room, move your coffee machine into another common room so your guests can still gather and enjoy their cup of joe in the morning. Keep some seating available in your kitchen so guests can visit with you as you prepare the day's feast.

4. Keep your bathrooms stocked!

Stock up on toilet paper, toiletries, and towels for your guests. Create storage areas for these items out in the open with shelves or baskets so your guests can easily find these items when needed.

5. Create comfy sleeping arrangements!

Make sure that your guests can get a good night's sleep by providing ample blankets and pillows. Consider adding a ceiling fan to your guest bedroom so your guest can directly adjust the temperature of the room at night.

6. Keep it well lit!

Your guests do not know your home like you do so walking around in the dark could be a hazard. Add nightlights to hallways, bedrooms, and bathrooms so guests can easily navigate their way. Also, ensure the exterior of your house is well lit for when guests arrive or depart throughout their stay.


The Blake Mashburn Group extends a sincere THANK YOU to all of our clients and wishes everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving!
