Beautiful Work

Let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands…. Psalm 90:17a

The Hostess with the Mostest February 23, 2009

Filed under: Hospitality — Andie @ 2:59 pm


This week we’ll be sharing some simple ideas we use when we play hostess. The ways I try to make guests to my home feel welcome, Minnesota style:

– Always offer a hot drink and keep lots of different teas and powdered coffees (International Delight) on hand

-Light a candle (my favorites are from Pier 1… the smells are usually nice, but not overpowering)

– Have people over even when there is laundry piled on a chair in the living room and toys around on the floor 

-Offer a blanket when people sit on the couch (this is important in COLD Minnesota)

– Put an old towel inside the door so that people can put their shoes somewhere warm instead of on the porch 

-Pull a chair into my kitchen for my friend we can chat even if I have to do some work
