Easter Sunday is right around the corner, and you may already be planning a family get-together, complete with a menu and sleeping arrangements for out of town guests. Sometimes visitors can make you re-evaluate your bedroom furnishings. Do you have enough beds to accommodate everyone? Can you have the kids bunk together so that the adults can have more space? These are probably some questions that come to mind. It’s typically best to have several beds.
If you happen to own bunk beds or several twin beds for your kids, consider having the kids do a ‘sleepover’ in that room. This leaves the other space and perhaps larger beds for the adults. Also consider offering the master bedroom to relatives who have a baby or small children so that they can have their own space in the house for easier bedtime and letting them be together throughout the night if their kids are still young enough that they wake up during the night. If you have a king bed, this should be fine for a small family of 3 or 4.
As far as the holiday meal, the next thing to consider would be if you have enough seating for your guests to eat. How big is your kitchen set? Could you use an extra kitchen table and chairs? If you have a large dining table, this usually is enough space for the adults, and then you can add in a small extra table for the kids. Also consider using the coffee table or end tables for the kids to eat at, a simple table cloth can do the trick. It really is quite easy to accommodate guests for a holiday, with some rearranging and possibly adding in a few vital pieces of furniture!
