What Does it Take to Prepare for Spring Entertaining?
The key here is “freshness.” When we move from winter to spring, we are really moving from being cooped up in our homes, away from the cold weather, and out into the warmth of the sun. Open windows. Open doors. This is when we want to feel the fresh air and the sun on our bodies, and we want to bring the warmth into our homes.
To prepare for the spring, you need to prepare your home to let that happiness and warmth in. When you entertain in the spring, you aren’t going to ask your guests to stand by a fire or sit in a living room. People will move around, and they will move outside. They’ll expect lighter food and a fresher mood.
So, cleaning for spring, and expecting that you will be entertaining, means opening your home to the outside and cleaning off the dust of winter for the clean, warm, freshness of spring.
There are a few steps on this spring-cleaning checklist that will help you to drill down, clean deep, and uncover all that leftover grime and dust.
