HOW TO BE A GOOD HOST
Are you a good host when your guests come to your home? Do you know how to entertain them? Here are some hints for you to follow to be a good host.
Know your limits
The first thing that you should consider when inviting guests is knowing your limitations. Don’t invite too many guests if you don’t have enough space for them at your house. It is not convenient for them and not for yourself.
Have accommodation for all kinds of guests
If you have kids among your guests too or perhaps pets are included, then all the accommodation should be considered too. Put away all valuable items that you may have and kids or pets are dangerous for them.
Offer refreshments at the time of your guest’s arrival
Depending on the season or your guests’ tastes decide for a drink or refreshment to serve at the time your guests come to your house.
Make them feel at home
Have space for your guests to rest for a while in case of need and make them feel like they are at their own house. Have a bed, a closet and some books or magazines for them to entertain themselves.
Clean the bathrooms
Have your bathrooms ready so when your guests go to your bathrooms they feel good about the clean space.
Outdoor gathering if possible
If the weather and your space let you have a gathering outdoor then don’t hesitate to do so. By having morning coffee or afternoon cocktail enjoy the air outside.
Have desirable foods
You know your guests and you know what they usually like to have. Try to make the meals or foods that are their favorite or they rarely eat them because it’s hard to make. Food and drinks are very important part of your hosting.
Welcome your guests to the kitchen
To give home feeling to your guests make them familiar with your kitchen and let them know about the location of different items in there so when they need something they can help themselves.
Group games or activities
Food and drinks are important but it is better to have an activity where everyone can be a part of it and you enjoy the time altogether.
The reason that we usually gather and have guests is to have fun and see each other. So, it’s up to you to decide how to make everything desirable for your guests as a host. Make them feel at home, serve them good food and refreshment, have them a private place to rest and spend some entertaining time together and you will be the best host ever.
