Home for the Holidays - Preparing for Holiday Guests

The holidays bring a bit cooler weather, Holiday lights on the River, tamales being sold on the corner and friends and family from all over!  & all of these visitors have me making sure that my guest room is ready! (it's also an excuse to buy more linens, but that's a whole other story).

Here is a short list of things to get your home guest-ready!

  •  FLUFFY PILLOWS - speaking of linens, while you are checking out the linen situation - take a look at the pillows & make sure that the guest room pillows aren't flat. 
  •  BEDSIDE BEVERAGES - my husband & I disagree on this one - i think it's nice to put glasses and a carafe of water near the bed - my husband thinks it makes it look like we don't want our friends and family wandering into the kitchen after we are asleep... opinions??
  •  EXTRA TOILETRIES - I am THAT person... I am the person who saves toiletries from nice hotel rooms & a pretty glass jar filled with them makes a nice touch... also you can pick up travel sized toiletries from the grocery store... 
  •  FRESH TOWELS - I like to put the towels in an obvious location so guests aren't having to drip dry while they look around for towels. I also don't like to hang any towel that my mother will think is "too fancy to use". 
  •  READING MATERIAL - okay so, these books might be a bit "deep" for light reading before bed, but a stack of magazines, Local San Antonio Guides, and a notepad just in case they see something going on that they want to remember. 
  •  AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST... THE WIFI Password... make sure that they have it - post it on a chalkboard, put a sticky note up, send them a text... just make sure that they have it... 

This is my list... what's on yours?
