For most of us, there comes a time when we begin to trade late nights out at the bar for more chill nights in with friends over a delicious meal. But knowing that we prefer this kind of evening and executing it are two very different things. 

When you peruse Instagram, it’s easy to find beautiful tablescapes and dinner party decor that make it seem like everyone’s an expert on throwing a stylish night in, but the reality is that a lot of us barely even know what a tablescape is, let alone how to style one to perfection.

When it comes to selling a home, there are a ton of moving parts to consider. But beyond finding the right real estate professional and setting a fair price, there’s one factor that may affect buyer interest in your home more than any other: Staging. 

When potential buyers enter your home, they want to be able to picture themselves living there. If your interior features a very specific aesthetic or tons of personal, miscellaneous stuff, then it’s tough for buyers to view it as a potential home of their own. Additionally, a lot of sellers tend to overlook their home’s curb appeal, but an untidy or neglected exterior can leave a bad first impression that’s difficult to overcome, no matter how meticulous you are about creating a stunning interior.

There comes a time in most of our lives when our idea of a good time evolves from late-night bar hopping to gathering a few friends for dinner at a reasonable hour. Yes, the dinner party is among the cardinal signs of adulthood, allowing us to hang out with the people we like most without yelling over loud music or paying the bartender gobs of money.
