How to Get Ready for a House Guest {repost}

I am having my Mother-in-Law stay with us so I have been busy getting ready for her to come.  I thought that I would share with how I get ready for overnight guests.

The Guest Room

Make sure your guest sheets are clean.

Make sure you take away your other decor before adding more.  Keep it Simple!

If you can, clear out some closet space for your guest.

Empty out a drawer for some of their belongings.

The Bathroom

Make sure you have plenty of toilet paper and it is easy to find.

Provide extra toiletries.  I keep the ones from hotels and save incase someone forgets something.

Smell good – because my household cleaner doesn’t have a scent, around Christmas, I like to add peppermint essential oil to my spray bottle for Christmas time.
