Blog: Busy Moms Can Be Organized Too

To continue with the theme of my last blog, you can create a more elaborate guest room with a few fun ideas!

You can buy quality sheets with a high thread count without spending a fortune! Take a look at Martha Stewart's 400 thread count sets.  

Pamper your guests with soft, fluffy towels, providing each with a bath towel, hand towel and wash cloth. Add a monogram for a personal touch. You can embroider guest towels with your monogram (wife's first initial first, family last name initial large in the middle and husband's first initial last) or a single word like "Welcome" or "Guest". Fold and bundle each towel set with a wide ribbon.

An especially nice touch is to provide a sturdy wooden luggage rack that looks like bamboo. Suitcases rest on strong cotton twill straps and a lower shelf can hold shoes or handbags. Ballard Designs - ballarddesigns.com 

 A water carafe and glass set is a perfect bedside accessory and easily available.

Taking a cue from the best hotels, hang terry cloth robes in the guest room closet. You can purchase them from Lillian Vernon for a reasonable price. The Ultra-Soft Microfleece Robe with complimentary personalization costs about $50. You don't necessarily need to personalize every last item in your guest room but it can be fun to embroider these robes with "Guest" or "His" and "Hers".

Other touches can include: a clock/CD player for quiet music and wake up calls, a spot to stow wet towels such as an attractive laundry basket or hooks on the back of the door, a reading lamp, coasters, a note detailing a weekend of activities, etc. Use your imagination and think about what you would like to have if you were a guest in someone's home.

So, why not undertake that guest room make-over today and be ready for visitors tomorrow!
