We're having some very special guests tomorrow, and have been plumping pillows, and over all, fluffing up our guest bedroom to get it ready. So I thought I'd share a few things I do in preparation.
A few tips to make your guests feel welcome, and comfy...
Always make sure the linens are fresh and clean. (Nuff, said ;))
Always put out fresh flowers. (here we simply plucked from our garden the remaining Season's Hydrangeas)
If it's possible, include a small table and chair in your guestroom with internet service. (After all, it's a "high tech" world, and guests will want to send emails, check in at work, school, or home).
A few mints are a nice touch, as well as a soothing music c.d., (here we chose Sarah Brightman)
We moved the pretty vintage style painting, (it's a print, really) above our little metal painted "desk" to show it off a bit, the colors are very muted, yet have an old world feel.
Keeping the vignette simple just a few books for guests to browse.
A vintage Paris Souvenir serves as a miniature dish to hold mints (still to add) for our company.
This last photo is "un-staged" it's a basket I use for extra linens, my husband took the photo without my knowledge, but I found it charming. (sorry about the weird outlet, I still don't know what it's meant for)
Thanks for stopping by for a visit, back soon with more to share, xxx tami
