While David and I always love hosting houseguests, the holiday season is definitely our favorite time to welcome gusts into our home. We love decorating our home with touches of family decorations from my grandparents and items we have picked along the way together. Today, with the help of Wente Vineyards, we are sharing 3 tips for hosting holiday houseguests.
1. Have a bottle of wine with glasses ready for guests.
After sharing 5 ways to prepare a guest room over the summer, I heard from several readers that they always provide a bottle of wine for their guests. I absolutely loved this recommendation for helping prepare a guest room and what a better way to welcome guests to your home.
David and I love Wente Vineyards for celebrations, and their 2017 Riva Ranch Vineyard Chardonnay is the perfect bottle to welcome guests and a great wine for the holidays. Wente Vineyards 2017 Riva Ranch Vineyard Chardonnay also is the perfect gift to take to as a guest at a holiday party.
2. Prepare a snack for guests.
I like to keep pimento cheese and a variety of crackers and veggies available for snacks. It is a quick and easy snack to prepare and pairs perfectly with wine. Pimento cheese is such a Southern staple and one of our favorite appetizers to share.
3. Tidy up the space.
We take the time to give our living spaces a little extra TLC prior to guests arriving. That way, we can relax once guests have arrived, and all our spaces feel fresh and clean.
David and I look to Wente Vineyards because the brand prides itself on creating memorable moments with those we care about most. We welcomed my parents for Thanksgiving dinner with a glass of 2017 Riva Ranch Vineyard Chardonnay and will uncork bottles at holiday gatherings throughout December.
