Summer means a lot of things such as trips to the pool, vacation, grilling and entertaining. One of the things that almost everyone does at least once a summer is entertain friends and family such as parents, brothers and sisters, in-laws, etc. It’s something we all do and we always want them to come into our home and feel as comfortable as possible. Below we’re going to share a few easy tips to help you be the best hope you can be and really make your guests feel at home.
- Keep the Guest Room in Bloom
Keep fresh flowers in your guest room. It’s a simple yet effective way to a spark of life to any room, especially your guest room. Don’t worry about going overboard on the arrangement either. All you need is a simple bunch of flowers from your local grocery store to put in a clear vase with water. Tulips are usually a safe choice.
- Keep it Personal
Usually the guests who are staying with you are close friends and family. It’s a great idea to add framed pictures of memories that you two have shared. It will add a wonderful personal touch to your room a help your guests feel at home almost instantly.
- Stock the Necessities
People forget things. It’s a simple truth and it’s happened to all of us before. Keep a drawer full of travel size bath essentials, a comb, a basket of extra towels, etc. in your guest room just in case.
- Let Them Help Themselves
Ever been to a hotel and notice how they keep coffee and tea in the rooms for you to make? Do the same for your guests! Provide them with a few mugs, a teapot, a coffee maker and some tea and coffee so they can help themselves to a warm beverage whenever they like.
- Snack Time
A bowl of apples or oranges are a great way to not only add a pop of color to your guest room, but also to provide your guests with a light, healthy snack that won’t ruin their dinner appetite.
