Home Décor for Company

It seems there are two types of people – those who entertain in their homes and those who don’t. If you entertain family and friends in your home you are likely well-versed in the planning and preparation required. If you’ve not entertained at home, it’s time to give it a try. No matter how modest your place may be, a clean house is the best foundation for a gracious home, so take your time and make the place sparkle from the front door knob and knocker to the bathroom mirrors.

A good cleaning can do a lot to brighten up the look of a room. Try to clean during daylight hours with the drapes drawn so you can see what you are up against. Be sure to focus on the bath and powder room and make every surface sparkle. Should you be hosting overnight guests it’s a good idea to review the condition of your shower curtain and liner; these can be easily replaced at a minimal cost. Make sure you have a set of guest towels – this would include at least two hand towels by the sink; for overnight guests you should allow one bath sheet or bath towel, one hand towel and one washcloth per person, along with one or two bath mats. A small investment in a set of monogrammed guest towels can make a powerful impression upon friends and family.

Sometimes you need to host overnight guests and bedding may be an issue, especially if you don’t have enough beds. A futon is a great idea as it serves as seating by day and bedding by night so if you have a futon you will want to get some futon bedding and covers ready for use. Extra pillows and blankets are a good idea as well.
