Summer is the perfect time to have people over to entertain and show off your home. Entertaining can sometimes be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. With the right tips and tricks, your home can be ready to entertain any time of the day, week or month.
Start with your entrance as it is the first area people see as they enter your home. Make it one to remember, after all, it is the first impression into the home. Keep this space clear of any clutter and things that don’t belong. If you have a hall cupboard, store your shoes in there or have a shoe rack at the door in a neat row. This way your guests won’t be tripping over your shoes as they arrive. Consider an entrance table with a vase of fresh flowers on it or a large piece of artwork on the wall.
Flowers or scented candles add a sense of calm within the home. They also add some colour to a plain room or space as well as make the room smell wonderful. Choose flowers that express the season such as Blue Lilys, Daisy's or Tulips. This subtle touch to your decor goes a long way in making your home more inviting for your guests.
