How To Be a Perfect Host for Your Weekend Guests

As the old saying goes, "Houseguests are like fish, in that they start to stink after three days." Fortunately, it's easy to create an enjoyable weekend with company. Whether you're inviting over friends or family, here are some tips on how to be a perfect host for your weekend guests.

Having an Itinerary

Making a list of weekend activities requires a deft touch. If you plan too much, it’s exhausting and overwhelming. If you plan too little, you risk the dreaded “I dunno, what do you want to do?”

Have a few ideas for indoor and outdoor activities everyone might enjoy over the weekend. However, always gauge what your guests want. Sometimes, relaxing on the porch with a glass of sun tea is the best way to visit loved ones.

Creating a Comfortable Space

When you invite guests over, make sure their living space is as comfortable as possible. There are many ways to spruce up your guest room. Whenever possible, remove all traces of personal belongings from the space your guests are using. You don't have to offer a five-star hotel experience, but making the company feel at home is vital to being a good host.

Keeping a Stocked Pantry

People get hungry. It’s awkward to have guests ask for snacks, but even more awkward when you don't have anything to give. Have a designated area for food and drinks. Guests can partake whenever they feel like it. Granola bars and chips are good options.

You should also plan to cook at least one big meal for your company. A homecooked meal is a great way to be a perfect host for your weekend guests.

Having people over is a wonderful experience. Making your guests feel welcome in your home is vital for enjoying a wonderful weekend with your friends and loved ones.
