5 Things To Do Before Your Guests Arrive
It never hurts to be prepared!
It is only natural that every host (or hostess!) wants to create an environment where guests are welcome and comfortable. While it may take a little bit of cleaning up and a few styling tweaks, it's a lot easier to prep for visitors than you think. Here are simple must-dos you can do to make your family and friends feel at home:
1. Buy fresh flowers.
You can't go wrong with placing a vase or two of fresh blooms around your home—it adds color to the space, it boosts the cheerful vibe and makes the rest of the decor look put together.
2. Clean out the fridge.
Before your guests raid it for snacks, it's best to make sure that they won't accidentally eat expired products or week-old leftovers. It's also a good idea to fill it with premade gourmet treats after cleaning!
3. Know the guests dietary needs beforehand.
If you're preparing a big and fancy dinner for your visitors, make sure you know all their food restricitions and allergies to avoid impromptu trips to the emergency room.
4. Have games and fun activities on-hand.
While long conversations and sharing jokes are no-fail ways to entertain guests, sometimes, small talk can get dull and awkward. To avoid dead air, have some back-up activities like board games, DVDs, or cards at the ready.
5. Prepare small kits of extra toiletries.
You never know what might happen while they are staying at your house. It is better to be prepared with the essentials just in case an unexpected sleepover comes up or they get stranded due to terrible weather.
