Everyone has guests come to visit from time to time. You always try to do the right thing and have the home ready to greet them but other times you are so rushed and crazy that you only have time for a few small attempts. It's not as hard as you may think to welcome your guests beyond the usual clean sheets & towels.
Add some fresh flowers. Yep, simple eh? A small vase on a night stand with a bouquet of flowers or a simple daisy in a bud vase. It adds life to your guest room, color and of course smells heavenly. Maybe move in a potted houseplants. So many houseplants are know for their air refreshing properties. Make it one that not only keeps the air clean but fragrant. This is so much easier than healthier than a plug in.
Keep an extra blanket and pillow in the guest room so that they have access to them at all times day or night.
Make sure the window opens and closes easily. Get the WD-40 out if necessary to eliminate squeaks. Stock the bathroom with travel size shampoos and soaps. I keep a tray full of travel sizes on the counter in the guest bath so that they can pick and choose as needed. I also keep a potted plant on the counter to add life, and cleansing properties.
Lastly, keep a few snacks in the fridge for grab and go's. String cheese, apples, deviled eggs, carrots ticks, berries. Put bowls of nuts on the table for snacking.
These are all just small easy things but they really do make a big impression. What better way to let your guest know how much they mean to you!
