Here are some essentials for overnight guests to make their stay enjoyable.
Ice cold water in this chilled server is really nice.
Be sure to decorate sparingly and leave room for your guests to place their things by the bed. Offer some reading material, too and good lighting.
Make a place in the closet and drawers for their things. Now my closets are in bad shape and I must clean them out, but I can make room for things to hang. I need to clean out and take things to Good Will again.
Making a comfortable bed is important. Best to offer a variety of pillows such as a couple firm or medium and a couple of soft ones. I do press my cotton sheets for my guests especially if it is not a family member. My family members don't really care. You should offer light and heavy blankets or quilts.
Be sure to have plenty of bathroom necessities on hand such as toilet paper so your guests don't have to ask for it. It is nice to also have soaps, toothpaste, extra toothbrushes, and other toiletries just in case your guests forget something.
I have a special guest coming this weekend and the room is all ready. I will share who soon.
It is a fellow blogger. We will be joining other bloggers at the Country Living Fair on Saturday.
I can't wait! This will be my first time going.
My special guest will not tell who she is. Shhhhhh.
