Open your door with joy.
Kick overwhelm to the curb.
Preparing for company just got so much easier.
We desire to have a welcoming space where our guests can feel right at home. We crave for our homes to be places of warmth, comfort, and gathering. We want to open our doors with confidence and be proud of the space we're sharing with our guests.
But, sometimes the daunting task of preparing causes more stress than we feel its worth. We get bogged down with thinking through how to make our homes cozy and inviting. We give into the pressure of perfection. We let the overwhelm overtake us.
Friend, you deserve for this to be far less complicated. Invite Company's Coming to help.

Howdy, friend! I'm Mauri, & I'm really excited to help make it easier for you to welcome others in.
I'm a big believer that one of the best ways we can change our world is by giving hugs from our own doorsteps, inviting people in, & sharing yummy food around our tables. You know, everyday hospitality.
However, I'm also fully aware we can let intimidation creep in & prevent us from practicing that routine, easy-going, relationship-focused hospitality we so desire to show. Our space feels too small. Prep work seems too steep. We're constantly strapped for time, & we allow feelings of inadequacy to overtake us.
Friend, I feel ya.
As my dad would say, "Been there, done that!" But, after being a frequent guest in others' homes, & having countless guests in ours, I've learned something super important: we're making this too complicated.
Believe me, as the queen of making anything complicated (just ask my husband!), I know this all too well. And that's where Company's Coming comes in.
Through the years, I've picked up zillions of time-saving, sanity-saving tips & tricks that enable me to embrace my love of great food, all-things cozy & welcoming, & my appreciation for lovely spaces, but that make the process of achieving all of those things much simpler. After all, if the process is simpler, we're far more likely to open our doors, aren't we?
Well, friend, I've packaged up all of those tips to share with you, in hopes that I can help make everyday hospitality simpler for you, too. Let's go change the world together! But, let's make it simpler (and more fun) to do so.
