I love having friends over whether they’re staying for vacation or just popping over to hang out for a bit, having guests in the house brings more life and laughter! That said, it can be stressful, especially for mid-week pop-ins. So how do you keep or create a stylish home or space and how can you make your guests feel special with just 5 extra minutes?

Take an extra 5 minutes to impress your guests. Bake some cookies, cut up some fruit and move accessories around a bit to create a comfy, seasonal spot for socializing!

One thing you can do is throw some cookies in the oven! I remember going over to friends’ houses as a kid and being super impressed when their mom always had fresh baked cookies. You can freeze your favorite homemade cookies ahead of time to have a few to bake at a minute’s notice or just use your favorite ready to bake cookies.

By having a fun tray, napkins and the perfect cup (all picked up at Target of course) —you’ve created an awesome snack to chat over that only took as long as it took to put the cookies in the oven!

If you keep fresh flowers and candles on hand, moving them to a specific, comfy spot creates the perfect space for your guests to gather. It’s such a small change but makes a big impact!

Keeping up with changing seasons can be as simple as a new vase or pillow in a new color. I like to move fun, new pillows around to make sure they get seen and used.

Gathering these new, seasonal accessories together creates a great look in little time! If you don’t have cookies on hand, cut up some fruit. It’s a great summer snack for anyone!

I also love having a chalkboard hanging so that I can personalize messages or even jokes for friends coming over.

All these little details make a big impact and all together take no more than 5 extra minutes! Picking up small accessories at Target really does make all the difference!
