Can you believe it’s already time for fall gatherings? I mean I am not complaining I love the fall, everything from the weather and beautiful colors to the amazing fall scents and hosting fall gatherings has me jumping for joy. I think autumn and spring are my favorite time of the year; I get so excited when they come back around.
Since it’s fall and time to start hosting all the fall gatherings I wanted to share a few quick and easy tips to get your home ready for entertaining guests this fall.
And consider you company
Of course, you’ll want to clean up your house a bit but don’t forget to consider the company you’ll be having over when doing so. If your friends are bringing their kids, make sure and put things up that they shouldn’t be playing with. Maybe pull out a few board games, plan a few fun activities, and don’t forget to make kid friendly snacks.
I’m a candle freak, love them and they make my house smell great, especially in the fall and winter months because all my favorite scents are out. Candles are a quick, easy and affordable way to make your house smells great.
Stock the bathroom
Be sure your bathroom is cleaned and stocked for your guests. The last thing you want is them running out of toilet paper or not having a towel to dry their hands when they’re finished.
Depending on the reason and size of your event you might want to consider a potluck, it will save you tons of time and money, If you’re having a small get together or tailgating event for football season you might want to supply some easy to make finger foods. Something like this Slow Cooker BBQ Pineapple Meatballs recipe would be great; it’s easy, and both kids and adults love them.
If I have learned one thing over the years, it’s that lighting is essential to any gathering. Whether it’s a summer evening outdoors, or a small tailgating gathering indoor lighting can chance the entire mood of your gathering. In the evening I tend to enjoy enough light to see everything, but I don’t want every light in the house blasting. Plus, it’s nice if the light enhances a part of your home that you want to show off. Mine tends to be my cross wall, I love it and enjoy people asking me questions about the different crosses I have on my wall. I recently put up a strand of Enbrighten Café Lights by Jasco on my cross wall, and I LOVE the way it looks at night!
Poor lighting, whether it’s too light or too dark can be a mood killer at any social gathering. You want everyone to feel relaxed and comfortable but still keep enough light that everyone can see. An excellent way to achieve ideal lighting is with Enbrighten Café Lights by Jasco. I seriously love these lights! Right now I have them in my den but come spring I will be putting some outside for our spring and summer gatherings that typically occur outdoors. Enbrighten Café Lights by Jasco put off the perfect amount of light, and I just love the way they highlight my cross wall.
Enbrighten Café Lights by Jaco combined with a TouchSmart Timer are magical when we have family and friends over for a night of football. Everyone always falls in love with the lights once it’s starting to get dark outside and the lights automatically come on, and we never have to go home to a dark house. Not to mention my daughter LOVES it because her light recently broke because she was moving her bed and well she hit her light and broke it. She was suing a lamp that she would trip trying to find in the dark. Now her Enbrighten Café Lights by Jaco turn on automatically thanks to the TouchSmart Timer.
Enbrighten Café Lights by Jaco offer a variety of size, LED energy efficient, never have to replace perfect indoor/outdoor light. They are impact resistant, weatherproof, ideal for any space whether it’s your kid’s room, the patio, office, or even your cross wall. Enbrighten Café Lights by Jaco are built to last year around continuance outdoor use, but that doesn’t mean they have to be used outside, they’re just made for outside use but look oh so fabulous inside.
