We absolutely love entertaining. The more the merrier is our motto when it comes to our home. Plus, we have a flexible open door policy to all our guests. But that also means, at anytime someone could be popping by for a visit which can be very stressful. That’s why I have teamed up with Home Outfitters to share my hacks to keeping our home guest friendly all year around!
I know this might seem impossible, we actually have someone who comes to our house every couple of weeks to help with the deep clean. But it doesn’t mean that those dust bunnies stay away. That’s why I keep my Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal from Home Outfitters close by. This no fuss partner in crime is amazing at capturing all that dust, dirt and microscopic particles roaming around my home. Plus, it’s the only vacuum with no dirty filters to wash or replace. After quick zip around my home, I am completely comfortable with any guest popping in and not collecting a mess on their socks.
Not only when it comes to food and drinks, its important to have the serving essentials on hand at any time. Platters, bowls, napkins, dishes and utensils are almost as important as the food that you put in it if you want to make a statement. Plus, I always keep the following stocked and ready to serve my always thirsty and hungry guests: red and white wine, nuts, cheeses, crackers and chips!
It’s really the little things that make a huge impression. I love always having some amazing smelling candles at the ready and almost always have some fresh flowers at home. No time to run to the market for some? I love the idea of a local flower subscription service like Bourbon Rose Floral Design Co. options which insures there is always some fresh and new flowers to liven up your home.
