5 Senses of Entertaining



When entertaining in your home, always remember to touch all 5 senses of your guests.


Sight: Lights turned low; lamps on; beautiful floral arrangements; a fire in the fireplace (if it is that time of year); candlelight flickering


Smell: Your favorite scented candle; food cooking in the oven; nice signature perfume for the hostess that does not overpower the other smells


Taste: Choose tastes for the different seasons: Christmas might bring ginger, nutmeg, peppermint and cranberries


Touch: Textured pillows on the couch; warm throws in a basket


Hear: Have music playing lightly in the background when guests arrive as sound evokes the strongest emotion


Together with you,

Lisa Lou
