How To Prepare Your Home For Thanksgiving

Can you believe Thanksgiving is right around the corner? Like any holiday, hosting Thanksgiving should be a fun and enjoyable time spent surrounded by friends and family. Staying organized and preparing your home ahead of time will help reduce stress and allow you to be fully in the moment on Thanksgiving Day.

Kitchen & Dining Room

Two of the most important rooms in the home, deep cleaning your kitchen and organizing your dining room should be at the top of your to-do list. Thanksgiving is the start of heavy kitchen use for many households. Check to make sure all of your appliances are in working order and your pantry is stocked with everything you need. Do you have enough dinnerware and space for everyone in your dining room? Review your guest list and make sure everyone can gather comfortably, borrowing extra chairs or a table if needed. And for the finishing touch, add a Thanksgiving centerpiece or fall-inspired linens to create a festive tablescape.

Living Room

The perfect spot for parade and football watching or post-meal relaxing, declutter and clean your living room to ensure there's plenty of room for your guests to gather. Give all of your furniture a thorough dusting or vacuuming, and clear away any lingering Halloween cobwebs. To add some extra comfort to the space, dress up your seating areas with decorative pillows and throws.

Guest Room

Just like your living room, tidy up your guest bedroom with a thorough dusting or vacuuming. Check your guest linens and give them a wash if they need freshening up or purchase new bedding if your current set isn't up to snuff. Dress up your guest bed and make it extra cozy with throw pillows and blankets.


Probably everyone's least favorite room to clean, your bathroom is guaranteed to be the second most used room in the house next to your kitchen. Make sure your bathtub, sink, and toilet are sparkling clean for your guests. Give all of your bath mats and towels a good cleaning as well or shop for new bathroom accessories to brighten up the space. And don't forget to stock up early on toilet paper, soap, and tissues so you're not making a last-minute dash to the store. Need a refresh before the holidays? Spruce up your home with Port & Bay!
