Get Your House Ready Now For Guests

 One thing that can cause a lot of stress is preparing your house for out-of-town guests. As we get closer to the holiday season,it becomes more pressing that your home is guest-ready. Check out some practical tips to help with that mission...

The front entrance is the formal one that guests use, while the family entrance may be on the side of the house, through the garage, or at the back door. You don't need the same kind of functional storage here that you do at those entrances, so the furnishings can be minimal and decorative. 

Centerpieces That You Can Make

 When you host a party at your home, it can be easy to overlook areas your guests use for entertainment. Centerpieces can provide more than an aesthetic addition, they can also be used for entertainment.Make them yourself with the following tips...

What hostess doesn't love the moment when everyone gets cushy on the couch? Be ready with a coffee table topped with more than just a pile of remotes. The artsy team behind iCarve designs show us how to turn the table trendy using a few packs of balloons. Buy a sheet of wire mesh from the hardware store and cut it into pieces. Tie long balloons (forming knots at either end) through the wire weave to create a textured design. Then secure them around glass vases with extra pieces of wire or twist-ties.
