An experienced host knows that entertaining doesn’t just happen around the table. The guest experience begins the moment you decide to invite visitors to gather. As it relates to the physical environment, it may include spaces away from your home or spaces around and in your home you may not at first consider such as the entranceway, the powder room and your guest room, just to name a few.

  1. I appreciate a fresh and clean bathroom when a visit people! I do the same with fresh towels and bath soaps but will need to add flowers and a candle!

  2. I love to entertain and that also means hosting overnight guests! You have great tips that are easy and give a warm welcome to your any guest! Fresh flowers is a must as are clean sheets and towels at my house!

  3. All good tips. I recently just stocked out guest room and have a drawer with essentials like shampoo, soap, toothpaste etc. All travel size that I have accumulated. My relative come often and these items seem to be appreciated.

  4. My mom used to save the little shampoo, conditioner, and lotion bottles from hotels and then put them in a tiny basket in the guest bathroom. That way, they get a new bottle each time and then they can keep it or you can toss it so the next guest has their own toiletries!

  5. Krayl,
    This video was so timely for me. I am preparing a guest room for my sister. You mentioned a couple of items, one being flowers, that I had not thought of. Enjoyed the video.

    Thank you.
