So if you know me or have been following my blog for any length of time you know how much I LOVE to throw and host parties and gatherings. It’s my favorite thing to do. I love having people over to our home to celebrate birthdays and holidays or just an evening with friends.
And while I love to host sometimes the days leading into a party or gathering at our home can be super stressful. Our house tends to stay tidy because I just live better and feel better in a tidy home, but I only get down and dirty to really clean, clean every other week or so. But especially right before we have guests in our house.
I wanted to share three simple ways you can make your party prep a breeze and what I’ve done to implement these things into my party prep routine!
Limit The Areas of Focus
When we first started hosting parties at our house I would try to clean ALL OF THE THINGS. Every room, every crevice, every floor. And I very quickly got overwhelmed and stressed about what I needed to do prior to our party or family holiday.
After a few stressful weeks leading into parties I learned to just focus on the areas that people will actually be in! It seems like a simple enough task, but I know I’m not alone when you’re prepping for a party you just want everything to look and smell nice!
Since then, I have started to limit the areas in which I focus on. Half of our birthday celebrations are outside so I limit my focus on cleaning and preparing our two bathrooms, tidying up the living area and kitchen, but primarily focusing on the outdoors because THAT is where everyone will be a majority of the time!
Easy Cleaning With Bona
Make the cleaning portion of your party prep infinitely easier and quicker with Bona®.
I recently switched to Bona’s Quick Clean System to limit my cleaning supplies and to make my cleaning effortless. The Bona Quick Clean System includes the tools you need for everything: Bona Premium Microfiber Mop for Hard-Surface Floors, Disposable Dusting Cloths (dusting solution) and the Wet Cleaning Pads (cleaning solution).
It doesn’t take me long to clean my all wood floors because of the unique design on the Bona products. First I use the disposable dusting cloths and then move to the Wet Cleaning Pads. With the Bona products I can expect to finish cleaning my floors 40% faster because of the extra-large mop design. It’s incredible and this busy mom can use any time saving products I can get!
Here are a few things Bona promises to provide with all their cleaning systems:
- DUST – 3D design mimics our microfiber to pick up more dust and dirt, especially pet hair
- CLEAN – Thick pad infused with Bona proprietary cleaning solution designed for proper hardwood floor care
- Clean 40% faster due to the extra-large mop design
Whether it’s your spouse, your kids, your mom or your friends — get some help! I always have my husband on one duty of the party prep and enlist the help of a friend or two so I can focus on the cleaning while they work on decorating, cleaning up the backyard and prepping food.
Having multiple people is not only a time saver, but it’s also a stress saver!
