November 30, 2023

The holiday season brings joy, warmth, and a chance to create lasting memories with family and friends. And if you're a new homeowner or about to move into your dream home, the excitement of hosting guests during this special time can be joyous. However, if you aren't prepared, it can be stressful. With Kay Builders, new homes in the greater Lehigh Valley area are the perfect canvas for creating cherished holiday moments, especially around the holidays. Here are some tips to help alleviate stress and make your home the heart of joyful gatherings this season:

1. Customizing Your Space for Guests

Your home is the perfect reflection of your unique lifestyle. Take advantage of our CUSTOM-i-ZABLE floor plans to create the ideal guest room or bonus space for your visitors. From adding an ensuite bathroom to incorporating built-in storage solutions, tailor the space in new homes to provide comfort and convenience for your guests.

2. Early Preparations for a Stress-Free Holiday

The key to enjoying the holidays with your guests is preparation. Before their arrival, make a checklist and start prepping. Depending on the size of your guest list, you will want to start prepping at least a week before your guests arrive. From decorating your home to meal planning and even setting up an entertainment area, getting things in order beforehand ensures you can fully immerse yourself in the festivities and enjoy being surrounded by family.

3. Welcome Kits and Thoughtful Touches

Make your friends and family feel truly at home by preparing welcome kits with essentials like toiletries, fresh towels, and a guide to nearby attractions or favorite local spots. The Discover Lehigh Valley website is a great source for out-of-town guests looking for holiday events and happenings. Personal touches like a handwritten note or a basket of seasonal treats add warmth to their stay and showcase the thoughtfulness of hosting.

4. Effortless Entertainment Spaces

The design of new homes gives you the flexibility to create inviting entertainment areas. Whether it's a cozy living room with ample seating or an outdoor patio space for gathering around a fire pit, your home's layout can enhance the holiday experience for everyone.

5. Tech-Ready for Festive Fun

Make sure your home is tech-savvy for entertainment. From setting up a music playlist to having smart home features that control lighting or temperature, tech integration can streamline activities and add a modern touch to your gatherings.

6. Share Your Home's Story

As a recent or prospective homebuyer with Kay Builders, your new home is a testament to your vision and aspirations. You want to feel a sense of pride when touring your guests around your new home, sharing the features and customizations that make your home unique. Share stories, highlight design choices, and let your guests experience firsthand the quality and comfort your home has to offer.

7. Capture Memories

Don't forget to capture the precious holiday moments in your new home. Celebrating the first holiday season in your new home is a monumental occasion, and the process of creating memories is an ongoing tapestry. Each year adds new threads, weaving a beautiful mosaic that reflects the uniqueness of the family and the home they've built together. We always love to hear from our homeowners!
