The holidays are fast approaching which means you’ll probably be having guests in your home over the next few months. Here are some of my ideas to make your home, guest ready.

Make them feel welcome from the very beginning.

I have towels I keep only for guests and they’re a different color than my usual towels so my kids don’t use them.

Fill a basket or a bowl with toiletries that they might have forgotten.

Have magazines or books available for your guest to read before bed to help them unwind.

Other things you might want to include.

Water bottles, if they need to take medication before bedtime.

Extra hangers.

Extra blankets and pillows.

Laundry basket.

A portable crib, if needed.

And an empty drawer, if you have space available.

This is what our guest room looks like right now. Not very inviting, huh?

Don’t worry we don’t make our guests stay there.

We kick our daughter out of her room. She’s the one that gets the futon.

The Home Decor and Organizing Link Party will be up in a few hours.

Yes, I can see you’re doing a lot of preparations for the guests, and such foresight too! From the water to take with the medicines, to the magazines for reading/unwinding. You have thought of everything. I can add these tips to my own. As to my prep chores, I go from top to bottom cleaning of the guest room, rearranging the beds and other fixtures to create more space and make them more comfortable. Then the linens and pillows/cases which I go out of my way to smell and if they are not that heavenly, redo the laundry until they are really sweet smelling. After the bedrooms would come the baths and these are equally tedious because they should also smell sweet and look it.
