Making Guests Comfortable

Making a guest room comfortable is all in the details. The room should be a cozy haven for friends and family. The bed should be as comfy as a cloud with crisp sheets and plenty of pillows. I always put fresh flowers by the bed, along with a bottle of water and a little note. I leave towels and guest soaps in a little basket at the foot of the bed. My most recent addition is this adorable Bird Transferware Dish for the dresser. I love it's vintage design, and it's just the right size for guests to put their accessories just before they hit that cozy cloud. I'd love to hear what you do to make your guests feel at home.

I love doing little things like this for guest. Fresh towels and handmade soaps. I also have the latest decor magazines and a newspaper as well.

I just posted on our guest house...we've had a steady stream of family here!! For sure fresh flowers and fresh soap. I also like to offer crisp, cozy bed linens and if I'm especially close to our guest, I love leaving a card or note under their pillow. It allows me to give them an extra hug and kiss before they go to sleep.
