After a smaller-scale holiday last year, more families will be gathering with loved ones this season. Whether you’re hosting dinner or welcoming out-of-town guests, Amy Sewell, lifestyle expert, joined us today on behalf of Bed Bath & Beyond with some ideas to help you celebrate, happier. Here’s more from her:

Most of us are looking forward to celebrating the holidays with family and friends this year. If you’re hosting guests for the first time in a while, Bed Bath & Beyond has everything you need to get your home guest-ready. 

You can make the holidays modern and bright with cheerful home accents from the new year-round celebration brand, H for Happy, which is available only at Bed Bath & Beyond. This whimsical line offers amazing values on décor to help you celebrate every moment, from festive ornaments and stockings to bath accessories, seasonal baking essentials and Gingerbread House Kits that the family can decorate together. They even have pre-lit artificial trees ranging in sizes up to nine feet tall! If you’re like me – and like to decorate several trees around the house – these affordable options let everyone get in on the holiday fun and deck the halls with their favorite themes. 

Most of our guest rooms haven’t been used much in the last year. If that’s the case at your house, it’s a good idea to spend a night in the room before guests arrive – so you can see what they will experience and make any changes needed to ensure the room will be quiet and comfortable. These Nestwell 625-thread count Egyptian Cotton Sateen sheets are silky smooth – and they just get softer every time you wash them. These luxurious waffle-weave robes and slippers from the new spa-inspired Haven collection will make your guests feel even more pampered than at a luxury hotel. One of my favorite ways to change up the décor each season is with throw pillows, and these light-hearted holiday pillows from H for Happy will bring a smile to everyone’s face. You can even add holiday cheer to the guest bath with these Merry Merry vanity accessories and festive hand towels.

As we all know, the best holiday gatherings usually end up right here – in the kitchen! And the new Our Table collection has everything you need to create new and favorite dishes – and give everyone the chance to cook together. What I especially love about these items is that they are perfect for holiday meals – but they are timeless, so you can use them year-round! This Stainless Steel Roaster set holds up to a 25-lb turkey – and it’s durable enough to use for roasts or other dishes anytime. If you’re cooking for a crowd, this 10-Piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set ensures you have plenty of pots and pans available to fix everyone’s holiday favorites. And, the glass lids let you keep an eye on everything as it cooks. I especially love Our Table’s 2-Piece Stoneware Bakers Set. These pieces are versatile enough to handle everything from a savory breakfast casserole to rich holiday brownies – and they are pretty enough to go directly from the oven to the table. 

Whether you’re decorating, entertaining, or looking for the perfect gift, Bed Bath & Beyond makes shopping effortless and convenient. Their improved mobile app offers quick price checks, organizes your coupons and offers – and quickly locates items in the store. In select stores, you can even skip the checkout line with the app’s new “Scan and Buy” feature.

If you have some things to pick up at the last minute, you can shop online – and get free curbside and in-store pickup within the hour. Along with options such as conventional shipping or even same-day delivery, you can get everything you need for the holidays – whenever you need it.
