more party tricks – not food related

front foyer

Someone wise once said to me:  if you are having people over, don’t bother cleaning your entire house.  After the first few people arrive, the whole thing will be a disaster anyhow.  Concentrate on the front porch (first impressions) and bathrooms only.

I’m loving the way our front foyer looks.  Books, twinkly lights, candles and pictures of those we love.  And to keep it real, our motley tree with Christmas decorations and toys all over the floor.  A house that is well-lived in.  It says, welcome, relax, make a mess…this ain’t no show home.

    That is great advice. I’m always cleaning our home in a frenzy, just in case they ask for a tour.
