Here are some of my tips for getting your home holiday ready
With the holiday season quickly approaching, we added some items from The Home Depot to prepare our home for easy, stylish, and comfortable entertaining. Our kitchen is where most of life happens and so many memories are made. I’m all about easy entertaining so that we don’t stress about prep work and focus on being present with our loved ones. Here are some tips for getting your home ready this season so that you can relax and truly enjoy the holidays.

Comfortable Seating is Key
Whether you are sitting around an island or table, it’s important to have comfortable seating. These stools from Lumisource are stylish with a beautiful mid-century design and the leather seats make it easy to sit for hours while eating and talking around the island.
The wood has a warm and inviting style and includes a footrest for enhanced support. It’s the perfect combination of form and function. We replaced our old metal stools and are so happy with these new comfortable stools. They come as a pack of two and are easy to assemble so we had the kids help us put them together. Don’t they look so good in here?
Use Durable Nonstick Cookware
Cooking is so much easier and cleaner with this 10 piece aluminum Ti-ceramic nonstick coating cookware set. The pots and pans are super lightweight and evenly distribute heat for efficient cooking. They don’t need oil and are PTFE and PFOA free which means nothing will stick. They can also be thrown into the dishwasher for fast and easy cleaning.
Less time cleaning up means more time spent with your loved ones. This set of pots and pans are perfect for daily use and make cooking a breeze.
Install Multi-Purpose Appliances
This over-the-range microwave from Café Appliance has a fast bake convection setting along with microwave capabilities. It doubles as an oven and has unique features to make simple meals for a small group of people or something special for larger crowds. It has a sleek design and comes with customizable finishes and hardware to fit your design aesthetic. It’s really quite beautiful! I loved that I was able to fit two pans of pasta to bake for my daughter’s cross country team. Instead of using the regular oven, I can now bake a cake in there too!
The Galanz stainless steel air fryer is also a digital toaster oven so it makes anything from toast, fries, dehydrated fruit, and cakes. It’s truly a multi-purpose appliance that makes cooking anything a breeze.
Homemade croutons come out perfect every single time! Accessories include a baking and roasting tray, air fry basket, air fry rack, oven rack, and crumb tray. This is one appliance we use every single day and could not live without.
For all you coffee lovers, the Calphalon Temp IQ espresso machine uses precise grinding and evenly heats for great-tasting espresso every time. It has a powerful steam wand that produces a creamy froth and delicious foamy milk for cappuccinos and lattes. My husband LOVES this machine and looks forward to his morning and afternoon coffee. I’m a huge tea lover so I love the hot water function that I use multiple times a day.
This powerful machine is perfect for the adults in your home and allows you to offer the most delicious coffee to your guests. They will be equally impressed and satisfied with this machine that delivers amazing espressos, lattes, and more. The matte black modern coffee cups are part of a 32 piece set from Stone Lain and look great in our kitchen.
Display a Unique Centerpiece with Fruit and/or Ornaments
Instead of your typical floral centerpiece on the table, place a variety of fruits and display them into a gorgeous planter or high-density resin urn like this one. It’s beautiful and functional allowing guests to help themselves to a piece of fruit. It is weather-resistant so it can easily be used outdoors to hold plants.
This rustic farmhouse 3-tier server holds fruit, nuts, flowers, and glassware. It can be used to hold condiments, desserts and so much more. It’s a wonderful way to display foods while entertaining. The ideas are endless with this server. Style it around a theme or event or use it to organize and corral your favorite items.
Serve Food on Stylish Boards
This pair of rectangular serving boards are both simple, timeless, and stylish. The acacia wood is pre-dried to prevent cracking and the faux leather handles are flexible and soft. Serve cheeses, fruits, veggies, and nuts to create your own mini charcuterie boards.
The white porcelain dish comes as a set and is a part of The Home Decorator’s Chastian Collection. You can easily use this as part of a table setting or use the large dinner plates as serving ware. It has a pretty modern rim and is great for everyday use.
Elevate your Table with Stylish Dishware
There is something special about using beautiful dishes and bowls to elevate your dining experience. The dinner plates from Baum are inspired by a Japanese dyeing technique and create a modern look. It’s fun to mix and match them with these matte black dishware from Stone Lain.
The contemporary stemware from Wine Enthusiast includes tumblers, wine glasses, and a decanter. Table settings can still be casual yet delightful. It’s a perfect way to dine during the holidays and elevate your mealtime at home.
Enjoy Time with Guests!
The table is set and the food is prepped so enjoy your time with your loved ones. The holidays can be busy and stressful so I hope these tips can help prepare your home to make this season more enjoyable and relaxing.
