How to Prepare for Company

Having friends over is always fun, however, preparing for guests can sometimes be stressful and/or overwhelming. Over the last few years, I’ve prepared a 3 step plan to follow when I know guests are coming over. Check them out below:

Tidy up:

I know this is a no-brainer, but please clean up before guests come over. A messy home is the first thing guests notice when walking into a space. Make sure to clear out the dishes in the sink and pick up miscellaneous items from the floor. In addition, make your bed and clear of table surfaces. Most importantly, clean your bathroom! It’s uncomfortable for anyone to use a dirty toilet.

Prepare food:

My go-to snacks for guests are cheese and veggies. I like to display the food in nice dish ware and/or a tray. Having food prepared for your guests will make them feel extra special and will make them want to eagerly return to your home.

Plan entertainment: 

Whether it’s turning on music or muting the TV in the background, make sure to have some form of entertainment. I usually like to have my Spotify on low as background audio.
