House Guests

We are about to host house guests for an extended period of time.  Here are some of my tips to being as prepared as possible for visitors (no matter how long they stay!)


1.  Ask your guests in advance if they have any food allergies or "issues"

2.  Prepare the daily meals in advance and prep those grocery lists so you don't miss anything.

3.  Double check that you have a working clock in the guest room. 

4.  Stockpile the guest room with extra hangers, towels, blankets and pillows so your guest can help themselves.

5.  Make sure to have extra toilet paper, toothpaste, unused toothbrushes, razors, aspirin, antacids, band aids in the bathroom. 

6.  Put a few magazines and books in the guestroom.   

7.  Let your guests know if they need to ready for any activities at a certain time or if they are expected to help with anything.

8.  Arrange morning drink items on a tray in the kitchen.  They way if your guest wakes before you, they can help themselves to some coffee or tea without waking you.

9.  Make sure to have extra games on hand for all ages. 


10.  To add a special touch I like to turn down my guest's bed adding a spritz of lavender spray, and to place a little chocolate along with the next day's weather forecast on their pillow.
