Holiday Entertaining in Your 3 Seasons Room 11/23/2016
A 3 seasons room is a great space for entertaining during the holidays. It allows you to accommodate all the guests you host, and gives your guests the feeling of being outdoors without having to bundle up. Here are some helpful tips to make your 3 seasons room ready for your holiday guests:
Warm it up. In the colder months, a 3 seasons room can become chilly. Many are not built with an HVAC system like the other rooms in the house, therefore you have to provide other ways to warm it up. Make sure that you keep the room cozy and comfortable with a space heater. An appropriately sized space heater can help you achieve the ideal temperature for entertaining. The sun can serve as a natural warmer as well, so keep the windows free of shades or curtains and allow the sun to enter.
Serve snacks. While the main course may be served in your dining room, serving snacks around your home before the meal is always a good idea. Place trays of finger foods around your 3 seasons room, and if space allows, create a small bar area for beverages. This will allow everyone to enjoy some quality time chatting and relaxing before sitting down to eat.
Keep it comfortable. Any time that you’re having friends and family over for a meal, you want to make sure that they’re comfortable. That means not only keeping the temperature at the right level, but also providing plenty of seating. Depending on the size of the room, you’ll want to have extra chairs available for your guests. Choose furniture that fits well in the space, and take out anything that isn’t serving a purpose when you’re entertaining. Your guests will appreciate the time and attention you give to this space, and you’ll appreciate the extra room for entertaining.
