Greetings Friends!The holidays are just around the corner--are you expecting visiting family and friends? A few simple preparations in your guest room can help give your visitors a warm welcome. Consider small, thoughtful gestures they would enjoy like this cozy chair tucked in the corner for reading.
Comfy pillows and bedding are a must, but don't have to be expensive to be inviting. I buy most of my linens at thrift stores. You would be surprised how often they are like new! As with most thrift purchases, shopping often and careful examination before purchasing is key. A naturally fragrant home is relaxing and welcoming--I spray all bedding with my own lavender linen spray.
Fresh flowers, hand lotion, and mints placed on the bedside table convey hospitality. You may prefer to provide a personalized basket specific to your guest's personality--get creative with it!
|A tiny vase of fresh flowers, chocolate mints and hand balm--small gestures your guests will appreciate. |
Providing tissues and a carafe of water is thoughtful and I also like to keep a snuggly robe on the back of the guest room door.
|This handy tray stand is ready for breakfast in bed or a late night snack!|
|Snuggly chenille robe for extra warmth and comfort|
What kind of amenities do you enjoy away from home that you might extend to your guests? I would love to hear your thoughts!
