Do you wish you could give all your guests and visitors a little extra to make them feel really at home? Here are some tips that can turn you into a very impressive hostess with the mostess!
Always Have Tea And Coffee…
Even if your visitors are only popping in to say a quick hello, it’s always a nice idea to offer them a cup of tea or coffee. So make sure that your kitchen is always stocked with plenty of tea and coffee, as well as sugar and milk. That way, you won’t be left red faced when you can’t offer your guests a drink! If you want to really impress, you could find out about the best coffee cold brewer on the market or buy some exotic tea varieties. That way, everyone’s tastes and preferences will be catered for!
…And Something A Little Stronger!
As well as stocking up on teas and coffees, keep your drinks cabinet well-stocked just in case you ever have any guests over on an evening. In fact, it’s always nice to have a bottle of Prosecco or Pimm’s in through the summer. These are great drinks to enjoy in your garden in the sunshine, no matter what time of day!
Rustle Something Up
As well as providing plenty of refreshments, you will need to have some food to offer your guests to ensure they don’t go hungry. Make sure you always have some snacks and nibbles in your kitchen, such as potato chips and popcorn, that you can put in a large bowl and offer to your guests. If you want, you might like to always have fresh salad vegetables and hummus so that you can quickly whip up some healthy crudités. If you unexpectedly have guests for dinner, you don’t have to go up to too much effort. Spaghetti and a sauce out of a jar will do the job just fine!
Get Ready With The Introduction
If you are hosting a dinner party or another event in your home, you might be expecting a few different guests, some of whom might not know each other. Your guests should, hopefully, mingle with one another. But there might be the need of an icebreaker at the beginning of the evening. The best way to break the ice with everyone is to go around and make sure that you introduce each guest to everyone else. If you throw in a few snippets of information about everyone, people should then have plenty of conversation starters.
No one likes a host who is openly anxious and fussing to ensure that everyone has fun. In fact, this is the quickest way to put a damper on the evening! Once all your guests arrive simply relax and enjoy your event. As long as you make sure everyone always has a drink and something to eat, nothing should go wrong!
As you can see, it doesn’t take much to become a hostess with the mostess! Now, get out there and enjoy your evening!
