Entertaining Weekend Guests and a Giveaway.

Entertaining a weekend guest can be a daunting task — even when it’s one of my closest friends or siblings visiting, I still find myself in prep-mode before their arrival. I’m usually fluffing pillows and tidying rooms, grabbing items at the grocery store, and putting out my best soaps and towels right up until the doorbell rings.

Does this sound familiar? Have some thoughts on this topic? Well if so, I’d love for you to join me tonight at 8pm for a #homemakerhappyhr Twitter chat hosted by Wayfair! We’ll be discussing tips and tricks for entertaining weekend guests, finding fabulous hostess gifts, and decorating guest bedrooms.

And to help you prepare for your own entertaining and decorating challenges, the nice folks at Wayfair are giving one lucky reader a $50 gift card!

    Hi there! I have house guests coming this weekend – perfect timing for your event!

    I come from a large family and there is always something going on and when one of them comes from out of town it would be nice to know what to do and keep them entertained.

    I totally agree – I’m always running around picking up everyone’s favorites and making sure the house is clean! Excited for the chat tonight for new ideas!

    I always make sure to keep a white and a red and some cheese/crackers for the guest bedroom. For the non-alochol folks, I like to use Perrier. Great happy hour yesterday Kate!
