Tips to Prepare for a Dinner Party

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Faultless/Bon Ami Company   . All opinions are 100% mine.

I love to host dinner parties and have friends and family over, but I tend to stress about the cleanup a tad. I like things to be perfect before guests come into my home, and perfection can hard to achieve so I thought I’d share my tips to prepare for a dinner party, when it comes to prepping the house.

We all have those household chores that we would just as well ignore if we could. For example, I don’t mind washing dishes or scrubbing toilets, but really do not enjoy folding laundry and putting it away. I do it, but grumble half the time. However, hubby hates doing dishes and scrubbing toilets, and doesn’t mind laundry. We all have our things, right? The trick to getting a nice clean house for guests is to divide and conquer. If one partner hates certain chores that the other doesn’t, then switch tasks. Get the kids involved too.

Well, one of my chores that I dislike is ironing when the items don’t seem to be getting smooth. That’s where Faultless Premium Starch comes in. Now what on earth would you need to iron for a dinner party? There’s the stylish outfit of course, but what about that awesome dinner table display? It all starts with a tablecloth.

So, I do try to avoid ironing when possible, by purchasing items that don’t wrinkle. There are some some things that are going to wrinkle, and there’s nothing you can do about it. My mom has never been a fan of presenting wrinkled items (clothes, tablecloths, etc.), so when I recently set up a 4th of July party table, I just knew my mom would cringe if I left the tablecloth wrinkled like it was. I even tried to get away with it, but after I had it laid out on the table I thought better of it. Luckily my new Faultless Premium had just been delivered, so I thought I’d try to tackle it.

Tablecloths are not super fun to iron, but the new Faultless Premium really helps. Unlike other starch, the Faultless Premium bottle won’t clog, flake or stick, and it can be purchased in the laundry aisle of major retailers. Try it for yourself, and use the find a store tool to find the product near you.
