How can I show Hospitality in my home?
I have a little 3 part series on this one!
Hospitality is what makes guests feel “at ease” in an unfamiliar place. Now, if you are in my Thoughtful Nesting class you know that that I believe that you first have to LOVE your home in order for you to be truly at-ease in it. And once you are truly at-ease in your home others will be also. However, there are little “things” you can do that go the extra mile to show hospitality in your home make guests feel welcomed. Bar carts are one of my favorite ways to do this. When you have a bar cart displayed, complete with glasses, mixers, tools, napkins, cocktail recipe book, etc… you are saying “Help yourself!” “Mi casa es su case!” Being encouraged to get hands-on automatically puts guests at ease.
Not big on cocktails? You can create the same effect with a coffee, tea, or candy bar. Seriously something as simple as putting out a beautiful bowl filled with nuts or candy can really make people feel at home! Basically, what I’m saying is, give people treats and they’ll love you forever.
Remember that tools come in every style! So embrace you and choose your bar tools accordingly!
