From your housewarming party to family birthdays to anniversaries, you are probably looking forward to all the new opportunities you have to entertain in your new home. And with a luxuriously designed new construction home, you’ll have the space to host everything from casual get-togethers to formal dinner parties. Keep these tips in mind for your home entertaining to make sure every event goes smoothly.
Add Seating in the Kitchen
The kitchen tends to be the heart of the home, and it’s a space where people like to gather during a party. Make the space more welcoming and functional with seating in the kitchen nook or bar stools around the kitchen island.
Distribute Refreshments around the House
Of course, the kitchen can easily get too crowded—especially when guests are clamoring for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. To relieve the kitchen from crowding, set up a buffet table and a bar table in other parts of the house, such as on the patio or in the dining room. This will give guests an opportunity to explore your home more and feel comfortable as they pick up snacks and refreshments.
Install a Speaker System
Music is essential for entertaining, so it makes sense to invest in a quality speaker system if you plan to entertain often. A Bluetooth-capable setup is a convenient option, because anyone can connect and play their own tunes, which is a fun addition for any gathering.
Keep Pets in Designated Areas
You may love to host guests and entertain, but your pets may not be so excited about it. If your pets aren’t the highly social types—or if you do plan to have food and drink stations scattered around the home—you might think about confining them to the master bedroom or a section of the yard until the festivities wind down.
