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?
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.
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!
