Ghostess with the Mostest:

The ‘Horror of Decor’ for Your Hostess Station

What is the first thing your guests are going to see when they enter your establishment? They should see a smiling host or hostess happily perched behind their hostess stand. However, it is even more fun to see them ghoulishly getting into the holiday spirit by taking time to invest in a spooktacular theme for their stand or station.

Make a Lasting Impression

Adding  festive color, seasonal decorations, and a little spirit goes a long way in making a positive first impression on your restaurant’s guests during the upcoming holidays. October is the time to plan and celebrate Halloween, so bring some fun to your hostess station by decorating it with some ghouls and goblins!

Start with the Station & Stand Options

Did you know The Hostess Station has two distinct models that offer flexibility throughout the seasons?  Both models come with the option to change out front and side panels to achieve your desired look or just to fit your mood.

Dress it up a Bit

Laminate panels allow restaurant/bar establishments the ability to bring full customization to their host areas. This provides a great first impression, as well as, an opportunity to make a lasting impression.

Laminate panels and decorative metal finishes from Wilsonart provide hundreds of options that allow you to customize your station for both every day and the holidays. Swap out your panels just for the holidays with a metallic set of panels or consider a quarterly change to bring a new element to your hostess stand area. Whichever panels you choose could be uniquely yours!

The Deluxe Hostess Station & Stand

To help narrow down which panel inserts work best for your look, it’s important to decide which one of the four Hostess Station models is right for your space. The Deluxe Line has black frames and the Rustic Line has distressed steel frames which gives the same design, a completely different look. The frames on each stand hold the panels in place and also act as a border to the panels. Since the frames are very visible, the finish on the frames is important to consider when planning the overall look of the hostess desk.

We’ll highlight our Deluxe line to show off how well it fits with our Halloween theme!
