Be a perfect Host

Many may panic when they have guests coming over for a weekend or an overnight stay. But there’s nothing to stress about. All you need is some planning and preparation and you are gonna stay on top of everything.

Here are a few pointers…


Clean it up

First step is to de-clutter your house of all stuff that’s been lying unused for weeks now. Don’t go overboard with washing –cleaning of your house just dust your furniture and china and you are good to go. Freshening up your house with nice lavender or vanilla will give a welcoming feel to your guests.


Welcome your guests and show them to their rooms right away.

Your guests have traveled long distance or may have taken a harrowing flight. They need to unpack and freshen up. So it’s best that you show them to their rooms and make them feel at home. Fresh beverages are always welcome. Arrange for lemonade or hot tea according to the weather of course.


Stock up on towels and toiletries.

You need to stock up on extra towels and toiletries. See to it that they are washed well. The guest bedrooms and bathrooms need to be clean. On a safer side you can keep spare toothbrushes-hair shampoos incase they have forgotten to carry one.


Guide your guests about your city.

You can be a tour guide for your guests by acquainting them with major restaurants, general and medical stores and gas stations.  This will help them go around when you are not available. You can arrange a car for their disposal for them to check out new areas.


Please be helpful to your guests.

There is always too much to do what with the daily chores, your deadline at work and kids schedules etc. Stay-over guests can add a bit of stress what with their different needs, food habits etc. Just stay calm and balanced and take it easy. Make your guests comfortable. Create a warm and welcoming space for your guests.
