Guest Room Essentials - Guest Ready

Be guest ready anytime!  Today I’m sharing a few affordable ideas and a free printable checklist, make your guest feel right at home! 

I added a few new items to freshen up what I already had.  I started with a neutral palette and added pops of tangerine.

A cozy bed is number one on the guest list!  Lots of pillows, some to lean on, some to lay your head on, some to snuggle with!Guest Ready  - Guest room essentials

I picked up a set of beautiful BHG pillow cases in paisley pattern (available in-store), just to add a little interest.

When I was at Better Homes and Gardens Style Showcase, I spotted this tufted comforter mini set.  I knew it would be perfect for the guest room.

It never fails, I always forget something when I travel.  Your guest probably will too.  So create a basket of goodies, let them know that you’re thinking of them! Fill it with extra tooth brushes, toothpaste, pain reliever.  Grab a couple new fluffy white towels (or whatever color you like). Liquid soap and scrubbies, just because.

This  BHG Medium Wire Basket with removable liner  at $12.44, will make freshening up easy.  Just unsnap and throw it in the washer, before your next guest arrives fill it with all the goodies.Guest Ready - Guest Room Essentials

I picked up the vintage luggage rack at Goodwill. My guest room is decorated with all my favorite thrifted finds.

Fresh flowers, a note pad and pen, the wifi code in a cute Better Homes and Gardens Picture Frame are just a few of my favorite essentials. The frame is available in the store and so is the candy 🙂

You’re not trying to wake them up early 🙂 but I know they will appreciate knowing what time it is!

I added two of these white canisters, mints in one and fresh flowers in the other. I couldn’t resist the chalkboard cuties. The canisters were found at my local Walmart.

I love mixing pattern and color.

Guest Ready - Guest Room EssentialsI already had the orange and white duvet cover.  It’s from Walmart.com, I’ve had it 4 or 5 years and I bring it out in the fall.  To freshen up the look I added the BHG Chenille Swirls Decorative Pillow, in tangerine $11.97.  They play well with the duvet 😉 .  Soft and cozy  BHG 300 Thread Count Sheets in white $39.88.
