Who would you invite to your dream dinner party? We’ve all had fun musing over who we would love to swap stories with over canapes and a few glasses of wine (the Queen, Elvis, David Beckham…). But even when your guests aren’t famous or all that glamorous, hosting is a brilliant opportunity to get to know friends and family in a relaxed, intimate setting, and it can be great fun if you’re prepared and organised.

But what about when your guests arrive without notice? Whether it’s your latest crush or Uncle Colin knocking impatiently at the door, there’s nothing worse than the feeling of being caught off-guard. No one wants to be greeted by a dishevelled host hurriedly scrambling to clean up last night’s takeaway and rummaging around for a spare towel. Where- and how- you live speaks volumes about who you are, and can make or break the impression you give your guests. A pleasant environment can also positively affect a person’s overall experience, happiness and even health.

What to do?

Feeling the pressure? There’s no need to panic. Even with just a few hours to spare, it’s possible to transform your house or apartment from a cluttered pig-sty into a cosy, welcoming home your friends won’t want to leave. Just follow our guide below to setting up your place in a jiffy with just a few simple steps- from stocking-up the fridge to mood lighting, we’ve got you covered.

If you’ve got a little more time in your hands, why not go the extra mile and jazz-up your apartment with our simple DIY and decorating tips, and transform your home in just two days?
