Will you be having guests spending the nights this holiday season? Be sure to take some extra steps to make their room cozy and welcoming. It is hard to be away from home for the holidays. Imagine what you would like to have in your guest room if you were away from home for the holidays and create a welcoming and cozy guest room for the holidays. Even if you are just moving the kids out of their room there are a few things you can do to make guests feel at home. This post about How to Get Your Guest Room Ready for the Holidays is sponsored by frette.com.
Here are some tips we would like to share on how to get your guest room ready for the holidays.
- Fill a bedside basket with magazines or other reading material
- Have bottled wage and/or snacks in their room
- Clear out any clutter on dressers.
- Make room in the closet for guests to hang their clothes.
- Spruce up the linens in the room
- Place a small vase filled with seasonal flowers on the bedside table
You never know if you guests will get cold at night. Have plenty of extra throw blankets accessible for guests. Throw a Balze Throw on a chair or over the bed for guests to cuddle up with.
Do your guests sleep with multiple pillows or are they used to having a body pillow in bed. Throw on some extra festive throw pillows onto the bed. Keep it monotone or add some extra color for pop. It is up to you.
If you are putting the guests into one of your kids rooms, be sure and retire the Hello Kitty sheets for the weekend and splurge on some new bed sheets. I just love the pop of red color in this sheet set. It has the hotel look but its also very festive for a holiday guest room.
At our house, guests have to share a bathroom with the kids. Instead of putting fresh towels in the bathroom, I roll fresh towels and put them in the guest room. There is no question rather they are clean when they find them in the room versus mixed among wet ones my kids used that day.
With the holidays approaching and your overnight guest list expanding, take a few extra steps to create a welcoming guest room. It does not take much effort and you are sure to reap the benefits of happy house guests.
