Hey friends! We are already into the middle of October, and before you know it, the holidays will be upon us! We host a holiday dinner at our home, and this year we are having guests! My daughter’s boyfriend will be staying for the whole week, and my sister and niece and nephews will be visiting too. All of this company I am planning for has got me thinking about how I need to get my home in order and prepare to welcome guests into our home, and I thought now would be a great time to share some tips and tricks for getting your home ready for guests! I will also be sharing a really yummy smores recipe with a twist because we are looking forward to some time by our fire pit with family. But before we get started, I want to make you aware that the picture above is a shoppable image, courtesy of Big Lots! So if you click on any of the items pictured above, you can click a link directly to that item, how cool is that?
First things first! I like to have time to just relax and chill with guests, and what is better than family time by the fire and s’mores? Well, s’mores with strawberries on them, of course! Everything I needed for my s’mores I found at Big Lots, except for the strawberries. I’m always pleasantly surprised to find great food items when I shop there! They really do have a great selection of food, and things are easy to find! I have plans for us to make s’mores on a crisp Fall evening next to our fire pit, but you can make these in the oven if you don’t have a fire! I actually used the oven to make the one that are pictured below, just for the purposes of photographing them. But trust me they didn’t go to waste. They were scarfed up in no time flat!
