Holiday decorating tips from IKEA

Posted: Updated:

(WJBK) -- There's no better way to celebrate the holiday season than by surrounding yourself with friends and family. Stressed out about getting your house in order before guests arrive? IKEA has some easy tips for how to improve small, key areas of your home in a high-impact way, so you can be focus your energy on enjoying time with your loved ones.

SEASONS' GREETINGS: Let the holiday spirit greet your loved ones at the front door. Pick a seasonal color scheme and decorate the entryway table with small touches, like a group of candles or a bowl of potpourri. Keep guests' coats out of the way with a rolling storage rack that can be used to house off-season clothes once your guests depart.

Product Suggestions:
BLOMSTER bowl
DOFTA potpourri in a box
RIGGA clothes rack

MERRY MEALTIME: Family meals are easiest served buffet style, so make your buffet table something to behold. IKEA has a range of beautiful serving pieces at affordable prices that will leave a big impression on your guests.

Product Suggestions:
IKEA 365+ serving platter
GOTTIS serving bowl
ARV BRÖLLOP cake stand

IT'S THE LITTLE THINGS: Your bathroom is a space that is going to see more traffic than usual with a full house of guests, so give it a little extra love! For example, organize a collection of scented lotions, mints, extra bobby pins and hand towels for your guests to use to freshen up mid-party.

Product Suggestions:
GODMORGEN storage unit
FRYKEN box with lid
ÅFJÄRDEN bath towel
                                  
GOOD WILL TO ALL: Have your linen closet fully-stocked in case you need to extend the invitation for guests to stay over after a full night of celebrating. Make sure to have extra pillows and fresh bedding at the ready. Sleeper chairs are a great way to keep guests comfortable, while not taking up too much extra room in the house.
