Guest-Ready Your Baywood Greens Home for the Summer!

Submitted by Baywood Blog Team on May 23rd, 2017

When you own a home in an amazing golf resort community just 8 miles to Rehoboth Beach, DE, there will inevitably be a large influx of guests when the summertime rolls around. Right now is the perfect time to make sure you are prepared to host friends and family in your Baywood Greens home soon. Preparing your home now will decrease the amount of stress when you get the text “On our way, see you soon!” Take a look at our tips below for making sure your home is guest-ready for the summer.

Do the laundry
As well all know, doing several loads of laundry can be time consuming. It is best to get it all done now, so you don’t have to worry about it until after the first guests of the season are here! Make up all of the beds with fresh sheets and put towels neatly in a bathroom cabinet or in each guest room to make sure there are enough.

Plan meals ahead of time
Planning out meals will ensure no time is wasted debating on where to get food or what to cook for dinner. Go to the grocery store before guests arrive and stock up on the essentials. If you’re planning to incorporate fresh produce or seafood, wait until the day of your meal to head over to a local farmer’s market or seafood store. Be sure to take into account any dietary restrictions that your guests may have. Don’t feel like cooking each night? Head on over to The Clubhouse at Baywood for a relaxing dining experience!

Extra everything
The key to hosting guests is being prepared for anything to happen, which means making sure you have extra supplies just in case! Have extras on hand like sheets, towels, beach towels, sweatshirts, pillows, sunscreen, shower supplies, toothbrushes, and anything else you can think of! Guests will be impressed when you have the extra items to prevent yet another run to the store.

Declutter the house
Nothing is worse than feeling overwhelmed in your home before your guests even arrive. Clear out and put away clutter in each room that will be an obstruction for guests. If your guests are bringing children or pets, you are especially going to want to have open spaces for lots of movement and running around.

Kitchen conveniences
Make sure to have enough chairs and place settings for your guests to use if you plan to have a sit down dinner or brunch. When your guests finally arrive this summer, make sure to have a cabinet designated for conveniences like coffee, tea, cups, and portable snacks that they won’t feel shy to take if they work up an appetite!

Itinerary supplies
What we mean by this is, make sure you have everything for a day trip to the beach, a day on our exclusively public golf course, or a bike ride around the community. Depending on the activities that you and your guests plan to experience, have supplies for each activity ready to go when they arrive!

Follow these tips and you will be ready for summer guests before you know it! If you don’t own a new home at Baywood Greens, but want to try before you buy, take a look at our vacation rentals!

Host the Best Memorial Day Weekend Party EVER at Baywood Greens

Submitted by Baywood Blog Team on May 23rd, 2017

We’re counting down the days until the unofficial start of summer here at Baywood Greens: Memorial Day Weekend! The pools are open, our exclusively public golf course is pristine, and you have the whole summer ahead of you. There’s no better way to kick off your summer at Baywood Greens than by hosting a Memorial Day Weekend party. Check out some of our ideas on how to host the best party ever to get your summer started.

The Guest List

One of the best things about our homes at Baywood Greens is that they are the perfect size for any type of party.  Keep it simple with a small group of friends or go all out and invite the whole neighborhood! Make sure that guests know whether they are able to bring other friends or significant others, and plan ahead for a few extra guests just in case.

The Food

What’s a Memorial Day party without a barbecue? Pull out your red-checkered tablecloth and a spatula for grilling as you prepare to eat your own body weight in hotdogs and hamburgers. Prepare some vegetarian dishes that are still American classics, like corn on the cob, in order to please all your guests. If you are hosting a larger party, consider asking people to bring a side dish or even their favorite dessert.

The Flag

It’s easy to show your American pride by decorating with the colors of our flag. You can incorporate the flag in almost all components of your party: the decorations, the food, the drinks, and the games—everything can be made red, white, and blue! Placing smaller flags in drinks and on tables can be a great way to add some patriotic flair while strawberries, bananas, and blueberries can make the perfect red, white, and blue treat on a fruit kabob!

The Drinks

Memorial Day weekend is the perfect time to relax on a hot day with a cool drink! If you’re hosting an adult’s only party, create a hydration station inside where guests can mix their own drinks. Separate different drinks into buckets of ice to keep them chilled all evening. Be sure to stock up on water and plenty of ice to stay cool and hydrated.

The Games

Whether you included kids on the guest list or not, everybody loves games! Putting out corn hole boards, a volleyball net, or horseshoes can bring energy and excitement to the party. If your guests are willing to get wet, a water balloon toss can start some friendly competition while cooling down!

The Lights

As the day turns to night and you’re not ready for the party to come to an end, stringing some lights over the patio can come in handy.  Not only do they make the party safer when it gets darker, but they make your backyard twinkle. By the end of the night, you’ll be relaxing under the stars or dancing the night away in celebration of the success of your perfect Memorial Day Weekend party.
