This morning we were inspired by an article we stumbled upon an article on PopSugar addressing how to get ready to party and what exactly guests notice in your home. All of us who entertain at all know that one of the most stressful aspects of home entertaining, whether you are hosting a dinner party or your child's first birthday party, is getting your house in shape for your guests. Yes, you do need to clean but focus your time and efforts on making your bathrooms and kitchen spotless. Otherwise, shut the doors to rooms your guests do not need access to. As for the rest, we sorta agree there are generally just a handful of things your guests will notice about your home. No one will say – wow she so needs a new sofa or her carpet really deserves a cleaning. Your home decor is almost irrelevant so long as the rooms your guests see are tidied up and lack clutter. You can transform any room from drab to fab by implementing a few of these simple home entertaining essentials.
