Jul24 Warm welcomes 2012

Having overnight guests? Gather a few simple items to make them feel at home. For starters, a sweet handwritten welcome note on the bedstand. (How simple and adorable is this stationary from Etsy?!) Tell them where to find the dark chocolate and make note of your Wifi password. Top it off with fresh flowers, which we tend to consider a necessity more often than not. No need for a full bouquet – our local market sells single stems, we’re sure yours does, too.

Be sure to leave your nicest bath towels in plain sight. Pair it with a fresh bar of organic soap. Between the lavender and the linen, your guests are sure to overstay their welcome.
