Preparing your Home for Guests: 3 Things You Can Do


Calgary Dining Table

It's that time of year when guests are to be expected! At Showhome Furniture we love the thanksgiving season! It is a time of gratitude, family, love, gathering, and food! We know that soon you will have guests starting to arrive for the festivities, so to be the best host possible, here are 3 things that you can do to prepare for their arrival.

1. Create Extra Seating.

Aside from your dining room table, you’ll probably notice all of the extra bodies will need some places to sit. And not just to eat, but to casually lounge and enjoy visiting in each others company. Rather than pulling out a slew of folding chairs from your basement, keep the environment intimate and cozy with ottomans and poufs, and bring out some extra throws and pillows that the children can sit on or cozy up with during a movie night.

2. Pamper Your Guests.

Your family deserves to feel special when they come to visit. Some of them may have even traveled a long way to get there. Make them feel special by putting a small basket on the end of their bed with some extra toiletries, slippers, and a water bottle in it. Fill another basket with extra blankets and pillows, and leave a note with the WiFi password and a personal welcome note. Your family and friends will love it!

3. Set Up a Bar Area.

The last thing you can do is create a little area for drinks and treats. Find a small island on wheels and a tiered tray from Showhome Furniture and fill it with family-friendly beverages and goodies that everyone can enjoy throughout your time together. Keep it stocked through the holiday and your guests will always be satisfied.

These 3 things will make your guests feel special and loved which they deserve. Just a little preparation beforehand will make all the difference! Thanks, guys, what do you do to make your guests feel special? Leave a comment.

And Happy Thanksgiving ya'll from Showhome Furniture Family - Calgary's Furniture Store!
