Family and friends are coming into town and you are serving as host. You have all of the big ticket items but how about the small things that often get overlooked? Here are three must haves when you are entertaining guests at home.
Must Have #1: A designated area for coats and purses
Set aside either a room or extra closet in your home for these additions. Keeping items in one specific place guarantees their safety and eliminates chaos. The worse thing to do is wait until guests arrive and pile their belonging on the back of your sofa.
Must Have #2: Hors d’oeuvres or beverage of some sort
You can have a do-it-yourself tray that has a signature beverage along with finger appetizers that guests can consume once they arrive. Such gesture makes a person feel welcome and tells them that you were actually ready to receive them. The tone for your time spent together is also set by this act.
Must Have #3: Bathroom spray
We spend so much time with the food, beverages and everything else that we forget to make sure that there is bathroom spray. Having a good supplyincreases comfort levels as guests do not have to feel embarrassed after they refresh themselves in the restroom.
