Are you hosting a lot this month? Are you having friends or family sleep over? Welcome them into your home with a beautiful and organized guestroom. Even if you don't have an official guestroom, these tips can be used to transform any bedroom into a welcoming space for guests.
Having a welcome basket in the guest bedroom is a great way to help your guests fill at home. I love to put little cosmetics and basic toiletries in the basket for the guest to use, such as toothbrush, toothpaste, some soaps, and safety pins. It's always great to add some water bottles and a small snack.
A desk lamp and a clock
Having a night light or guest lamp and a clock are great additions for the guest room. These practical little touches will help your guests throughout their stay. Do your guests observe Shabbat? Did you know you can a Sunlite ShabBulb to any lamp to turn it into a Shabbat lamp!
I love putting the latest magazine or a local guide on the nightstand for my guests to read and relax. It's not a necessary addition but it adds a nice warm welcome to the room and reminds the guests that you are delighted to host them.
A custom welcome sign on a letterboard is a fun little addition to any guest room. My kids love to personalize the one we have to welcome the guests that stay by us. Letterboards are fairly inexpensive and easy to find. Enjoy coming up with a cute saying to write to welcome your guests!
It's always wonderful and can be a little hectic to host guests. The great thing about these items is that they can all be prepared in advance. I like to stock a bucket in my guest room with my "guest items". I keep a stash of mini toiletries and water bottles in there at all times. My letterboard and Shabbat lamp are in that bucket too. That way, when the guests arrive, it only takes a few minutes to get the room ready.
