Whether you want to admit it or not, the holidays will be here soon! Which means office parties, family parties, Christmas parties, school parties, etc. Every hostess needs her own stock of supplies to ensure the event comes off without a hitch. Check out this must have Hostess Tool Kit!
Adhesive Wall Hooks: Use Command™ damage-free adhesive hooks for hanging banners or party decorations — they’re easy to take down and won’t harm your walls.
Scissors: A pair of scissors is a necessity when you’re wrapping a gift, opening packages of food or cutting twine to hang a banner.
Scrub Sponges: Count on Scotch-Brite® Extreme Scrub Sponges to conquer tough morning-after party dishes.
Liquid Hand Soap: Someone spill red wine on your rug? No worries with liquid soap in your kit: Just mix one tablespoon with two cups of cool water, then dab the solution on the stain with a sponge and gently scrub.
Lint Roller: Remove accumulated pet hair from your couch or clothes in a flash with Scotch-Brite™ Lint Roller.
Kitchen Lighter or Matches: Don’t go searching for matches as guests gather to sing “Happy Birthday.” Keep a lighter or set of matches in your kit for lighting candles, the fireplace, fire pit, grill, etc.
Birthday Candles: Buy a set of birthday candles in gender-neutral colors so you have options for any last-minute birthday.
Tea Light Candles and Holders: Place these candles inside and outside your home to add a welcoming, warm glow to any celebration. Tip: Stay away from scented versions to avoid triggering guests’ allergies.
Extension Cord: Want speakers on the other side of your party space, nowhere near the socket? Extension cord to the rescue!
Surge Protector: If you need to plug in a ton of electronics, such as a laptop, projector, extra lights or a slow cooker, use a surge protector so you can manage all your wires in the same place more safely than you could with one socket.
Bottle Opener and Corkscrew: Don’t get caught digging through every drawer: Keep your bottle opener and corkscrew in your kit so you always know where to find them.
