Guests are Coming! It’s Time to Prep the House
Have a horde of house guests coming for the holidays? (Can’t they just stay in a hotel? Kidding, kidding. We love them.)
Don’t panic. The Home Sale has everything – and I mean everything – you need to make every out-of-towner feel at-ease and leave ever-impressed. Here are a few quick tips to get you started.
Tuck some crisp sheets in tight and load up on the pillows. It’s probably a tad chilly outside, so leave a few extra blankets stacked on a chair, just in case. Guests are always apprehensive about asking for things (even when we tell them to make themselves at home).
Coffee & Toast
Is there anything better in the morning? (Okay, maybe pancakes.) But there’s no need to go overboard – you’re probably preparing the big dinner feast. Have coffee brewing, offer some fruit or toast, and take them to your favorite breakfast diner.
Keep it stocked. Come 3PM (it’s the holidays, we don’t judge), someone will be jonesing for eggnog, and you’ll be ready with the rum. From ice buckets and decanters to every type of cocktail glass and goblet, this Boutique has everything you need to become the world’s best host(ess).
Our Get Ready, It’s a Big One: The Home Sale Boutique opens Friday, December 7, at 3PM ET.
