Home Bits- Prepping for a Guest
We have been living in our house for a year and a half. In that amount of time, we have had a spare bedroom decorated for most of that time, however never have had a guest stay in it. Til now! Okay, this weekend, but still. I know some love to be the hostess with the most-est, not exactly my cup of tea; with all the cleaning prep that comes along with that and re-arranging. Although, the decorating and getting all the little things out for guests? Now that, I do love.
I honestly don't even know how long it has been since I started adding guest room ideas to a Pinterest board. I've saved all these cute little details that make you feel like you're staying in a sweet bed and breakfast, and couldn't wait to add my own little twist.
Now where do you start? A comfy and cozy bed for me, is always item number one wherever I stay. Whether that's a hotel or at home, I want a big marshmallow bed with tons of blankets and pillows. This time of year that always starts with flannel sheets, lots of blankets layered and of course topped with a snuggly comforter.
Next up, linens. Other than bedding, cozy towels are always a nice touch. It's always the little things to me that makes everything feel a little more like you're at home. In addition to the linens, extra tolietries are handy in case they were forgotten in the packing process. In case you couldn't tell, I stock up and save anytime we're at a hotel, specifically Disney ones! And of course a little fun activity book kind of acts like your not so traditional guest book.
Some of other fun and cozy parts to the room! This little corner is a great little reading nook, tons of pillows and a bin of extra blankets are great for curling up with a good book or a magazine.
Lastly, and one of my most important items for any room is a scent. Whether that be a candle, a plug-in and in this case, a reed diffuser. I have reed diffusers all of over our house, and they are great! They add a touch of scent without being overwhelming. It especially helps with the eau de dog scent we have, especially since the pups have claimed this as their playroom.
