We’ve had a handful of house guests since moving out to the mountains (mentioned here, here, here and here and I have yet to tell you of MamaP’s last trip out!) and we always prep in the same way: clean, buy groceries – especially breakfast foods since Hubs makes a mean one, put out fresh sheets/towels and Hubs roasts coffee. Oh and lastly, and I set out this skinny basket we got for our wedding (love you, Leia) in the bathroom with a card, washcloth and miniature bath goodies.
I didn’t get the chance to use it much when we lived in Minnesota, except when our house was on the market. Coincidentally, the one time I forgot to set this out to ‘stage’ our bathroom was the *only* time we got an offer. Maybe I should take a clue and stop using it but I think it’s just too cute.
The fuzzy basket tucked inside was gifted to me from a friend (thanks, Mary!) long ago and I think it’s perfect to slip in an arrangement of bath yummies.
It’s nothing much and not especially crafty, but it gets me super excited for the arrival of my guests. Plus, now I can justify the decision to put this on our registry, even though Hubs gave me the side eye at the time.
Any old wedding gifts recently resurfaced like mine or any special routines you do when you have overnight guest?
