Being A Welcoming Hostess

I was inspired by Joanna Gaines’ post about providing a tray for your guests with fun goodies and overnight essentials.

We recently had some dear friends come to visit and were thrilled to be able to host them for the night!  I loved idea of leaving them a few welcoming touches.  Here is what I included for them on our guest tray…

L-R: Small vase with some fresh greenery, some skincare samples (Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil & Perricone MD Finishing Cream), fresh bar of Yardley soap, candies, clean towels and a handwritten welcome note with our WIFI password and useful information*.

*Including some notes for your guests about where to locate some household essentials is very helpful!  Let them know where to find the aspirin, outlets, remotes and extra bathroom necessities.

Whether you have a large house or small, making your guests feel relaxed and welcomed will ensure everyone has a wonderful visit.  Please let me know what you do to welcome visiting guests!
