The Refined Host  
The duties of the host are very important. As a host, you need to make sure that your guests feel welcome, are happy, entertained and comfortable.



Responsibilities of the Host:

  • As hosts, you always need to greet your guests when they come over to your home. You can smile and say, “Hello, come on in!” or “Hi, welcome!”. A warm handshake or hug is called for at this point.
  • If your guests have coats on or umbrellas with them when they arrive, offer to take them and any other belongings that they may have and hang/place them neatly at a corner in your home.
  • If you have a friend staying over, introduce your friend to the guests so that you do not leave the guests wondering who this unfamiliar individual is.
  •  As a host, you need to provide your guests with any toiletries they might need such as soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush, towels et cetera.
  • If your guest is staying over, ensure that he has somewhere comfortable and private to sleep. If you have to give up your own bedroom to him for the night, please do so.
  • Whenever a guest enters your home, you need to be on your best behaviour so that they feel welcome, comfortable and special. A guest is always given a place of honour; he is given the best plate, the best wine glass, the best seat, the best cut of meat and the list goes on.
