“Entertaining is truly the art of curating experiences. When I’m entertaining, I want people to feel embraced, comfortable, and as if they’re part of something exceptional.”

JEREMIAH BRENT, star of TLC’s series Married to Design: Nate & Jeremiah

Home is more than where you sleep. It is where we entertain co-workers, clients, neighbors, friends, and family. Many people stress over how to set the perfect table, which flowers should be used (if any), and what style works in their home. There are websites like Elle Décor that tackle this subject frequently and have some excellent tips. Hendrixson’s also believes it is important to start with a good plan and foundation. Key to successful entertaining is to reflect your style and personality. Your personal style says a lot about who you are. Whether your tastes are trendy and daring or timeless and chic, how you “dress up” your home reflects the unique traits that make you, well … you.
