Fun and simple ways of entertainment at home

1) First and foremost, always keep it in mind that in order to have an entertaining time, you need to keep things simple. Over decorating your home would make things complex and the party would turn out be very formal.

2) The decoration of your home needs to be simple and minimalistic. Instead of changing sheets, curtains and other furnishings, try to get the things already installed in order. Neatly tie the curtains and arrange the pillows on the bed.

3) Employ the nature to accentuate your home décor. Ivory colored daisies or fuchsia orchids in a neat vase would create the impressive look.

4) Make your home smell fresh and nice. The excellent solution for this is to employ air fresheners that work with scented oils. When the visitors are welcomed with a fresh and pleasant home scent, they will immediately feel comfortable and refreshing.

5) For serving snacks and food, make use of disposable bright colored plates and festive cups. Using these would infuse a funky feeling at home. Neither you and nor your guests would be forced to be careful with the prized crockery. This would definitely create a carefree ambience of fun and entertainment.

6) Instead of playing a movie, take out your game console and attach it to the television. Everyone can be given a hand to try their hand on a game. The one who scores the best may be given an extra drink or privilege of taking the dinner first. Alternatively, you may also host simple games. A deck of cards would do the trick.
