The holidays are here at last, which means holiday guests aren’t far behind. Here are five ways to get your home ready for entertaining, so you can spend less time stressing out and more time enjoying your family and friends.
Make Mealtime Memorable
There's a lot that goes into planning for a sit-down meal—choosing the menu, shopping for ingredients, and on and on. But thanks to these versatile dining pieces, the one thing you won't have to worry about is how you're going to fit everyone.
After a good meal, it's great to sit and chat over a cup of coffee. Upholstered chairs
are a nice touch to keep your family and friends seated comfortably for hours on end.
Extend an Invitation
A leaf lets you extend your table for big family feasts. Some tables even come with two or three leaves, giving you multiple lengths to choose from and the ability to seat up to 10 people at one table!

After all the time and care you put into preparing, don't overlook the little ones. A drop-leaf dining set
is the perfect size for a "kids table." And when mealtime is over, its drop-down sides allow it to sit flush against the wall as an accent table.

Instead of reaching over your uncle to pass the potatoes, simplify service and free up table space with a buffet
. You'll also appreciate the extra storage it provides when you're putting away napkins and table linens.
