Christmas is the time of the year when you should be opening your doors, especially for family and friends. If you’re planning to host a gathering this Christmas, then you’ve got some prepping to do. But if you’re the proud owner of one of our classy condominiums for sale in Quezon City, then you don’t need to do much. We made sure of that.
Nonetheless, here are a few things you should do to make your place the perfect setting for an awesome Christmas gathering:
Do general cleaning
If you should be doing this during days when you’re not expecting anyone, then how much more when you’re expecting important visitors? Sweep and mop the floors, dust the cupboards, shelves, and furniture, organize the clutter – anything to make sure that your living space has the look and feel of a clean haven and not a run-down bachelor pad.
Sniff what’s up
Don’t rely on your nose to determine the general smell of your own house; this is because you’re already used to it. Therefore, do not assume there are no unpleasant smells in your house. In order to not leave your guests picking up strange odors, thoroughly clean areas that usually have odorous items such as the kitchen and the bathroom, take out the trash, dust off your furniture and fixtures, and clean your pets.
Dress up the sofa
You, and your family if you have one, are probably already used to a bare couch. But to your visitors, it’s a total turn-off. Because of the lack of either throw pillows or a cover for your sofa, or even both, they will either feel uncomfortable sitting on it or choose not to at all. Therefore, don’t settle for what is just satisfactory for the best seat in the house. If you have these all-too-important couch accessories, bring them out. If not, then it’s due time you bought one for your guests and yourself.
Even if you have the most spic-and-span house in the entire world, your visitors will not be pleased if they find themselves bored out of their wits. Therefore, if you don’t want them feeling that a minute in your house is an hour in Earth time, provide them means of entertainment. Let them use your wifi, LED, laptop, or game console, give them food and drinks, and lend them light reading materials. Heck, if you want a more personal approach, you can engage them in a conversation if you think you’re good enough. Just don’t leave them with nothing but their thoughts.
Whether it’s the Christmas season or not, it’s only right that you serve your guests, not just literally, but also gastronomically. Don’t just cook food; prepare dishes that will appeal to them. If their visit is announced, ask them what kind of food they like. If you’re either unskilled on the culinary arts or too busy to put them into practice, delivery is a good emergency option. Although it lacks personal touch, what matters is that your visitors won’t feel famished.
Some people regularly visit, while some only once a year, during this season to be exact. So when they pay you a visit, pay them back with an unforgettable and enjoyable memory.
