get the red-carpet treatment

To receive a particularly warm welcome or reception marked by great or elaborate hospitality, ceremony, or fanfare. Since Jake is their only child, he always gets the red-carpet treatment from his parents whenever he returns home from college. I don't expect to get the red-carpet treatment or anything, but it would be nice to be greeted with a little more enthusiasm than that!
