Containers that say "Welcome"



 11-Welcome-Your-Guests-

Creating any landscape decor is fun and awesome to try.  Doing it with potted plants and flowers is really creative and delightful.  When you look at your front yard landscape do you see it as welcoming and warm or barren and cold?

 7-Outdoor-Garden-Contai 

With the holidays coming and guests arriving more than normal, now is the time to take a check on the pots you have displayed and start to consider the pottery you need to add.  There is nothing more inviting to your guests than a wonderful display of flowerpots or houseplants.  We know how much you care about the inside of your home, so now is the time to make sure the outside shows the same attention.

 6-Entryway-Garden-Conta

Potted garden containers are really just mini gardens with in a garden.  When placed near the front door entryway or porch it's your way of saying welcome with potted flowers that not only look lovely but smell pleasing.  Select pottery that matches or compliments your exterior.  Maybe you have a large porch with white wicker furniture and lace.  Fill those planters with pinks, lavender and lots of green ferns to compliment and complete the look.

If you have a walkway that has matching pillars on each side of the entryway this is the time to make sure they are topped with large garden bowls overflowing with colorful flowers and pot toppers.  Maybe you don't have access to a garden hose, then pot them with succulents or cacti, that don't take a lot of care.  Create a elegant and stylish look that is simple yet sensational.

 8-Entrway-Containers

By adding tons of colored flowers to your garden containers you create a burst of beauty that is always pleasing to the eyes and so welcoming to your guests.  Always add a sweet fragrant plant to welcome your guests with perfume that says.... LOVELY!  If you want to decorate them for the holidays that is fun and creative also.  Fill the pots with gourds and mini pumpkins for fall or evergreens and branches with red berries for Christmas.

Lastly, keep the potted flowers and plants you display cleaned up.  Don't let them die off and clutter up the planters.  Keep them dead headed and new flowers re-potted so that they look lovely all season long.  Nothing says we don't care what you think then garden pottery filled with dead or dying flowers and plants.

Welcome Guests With Potted Flowers



Simple Ways to Make Your Guest Feel Welcomed In Your Home

Now that the holidays are over it usually means no more guests.  Well for some of us that isn't the case.  Maybe family that couldn't make it during the holidays can now plan a trip.  How about unexpected guests?  Here are a few simple ideas that can make a huge impact when it comes to making them feel extra welcomed.

Fresh Flowers - sounds simple but it's easily forgotten.  A bouquet of store purchased flowers not only smells wonderful but adds life & color to a guest room.  We love the idea of a potted plant or blooming flowers on a dresser or bed side table.  Purchase a plant from your local nursery and drop the plastic pot right into a  decorative garden container.  Prefer a more decorative pot?  Use a tea pot, water pitcher, or tall glass.   Wa La easy and lovely.

Guest Items - Fill a empty flowerpot with mini sizes containers of shampoo, soap, liquid soap, close soap (for small messes) & a sewing kit.  Leave a note that lets them know that it's ok to use any items they wish.  

Use a small ceramic pot as a candy dish.  Fill it full of individually wrapped chocolates or mints.  Set on the dresser or side table so that your guest not only feel welcomed but they can enjoy a sweet reminder from you anytime they wish.

Lastly, make sure there is an extra blanket available so that your guests don't have to ask if they get cold.  In the summer maybe place a water bottle next to the bed or a spray water bottle to help keep them cool during their visit.

The point is to think of your guests needs before they even know they need anything.  Be welcoming and loving and you will be remembered as the perfect hostess!  So simple!

Welcome Guests Properly

Easy ways to welcome guests into your home!

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!
