5 Ideas to Make Your Guest’s Feel at Home this Holiday Season

My husband and I both have families that live out-of-town.  This means we frequently have house guests and sometimes for extended periods of time.  We love having them, but up until this fall, we did not have a designated space they could call their own.  Often kids were rearranged and bathrooms were shared and it got a little crazy at times.  With our basement renovation, we decided to add a guest suite.  Here are some pictures of the finished space.

IMG_6216Since the holidays are almost here and many of you will be having house guests of your own, I thought I'd share some ideas that will make your guests feel welcome.  Even if you do not have a designated guest space, you can use these ideas to make any space feel like home for them.

1. Warm comfy linens and extra blankets

5. Fluffy towels ready for use.

IMG_6217Better Homes and Gardens magazine had a feature called Warm Welcome in their November issue.  In this feature, they gave a link to a really cute idea for a door hanger which gives your guests the wi-fi password and house hints.  Here is the example that I downloaded and put to use.
