make your home welcoming

Creating a welcoming atmosphere for guests is as simple as 1,2,3.

1. Porch light on
It's lovely to feel that your host has taken the time to think about your approach to the front door.  A light on makes a guest feel expected and welcomed before you even open the door.

2. Burning a lightly scented candle
Having a lovely soft scent greet your guests as they enter your home is both delightful and thoughtful. Light your candle at least 20 mins before your guests arrive so that the burnt match smell has time to dissipate and the candle can start working it's magic.

3. Soft music
Gentle music down low is a lovely way to help create an extra layer warmth and welcome to your home.
