Entertaining with stile: The House Guest

We had a few guests visit us over the holidays and it reminded of things you, too, can do to make your guests feel welcome.

Lay out an extra blanket in case guests get cold in the middle of the night. These Mexican coverlets are really pretty.

Light a scented candle just before they arrive to keep the room smelling fresh.

I like to pick some flowers from the garden and put them in a vase on a nightstand.

freshly washed towels make your guests feel like you’ve awaited their arrival.

A decanter for water (or wine) for some middle of the night drinking.

these guest toothbrushes are a nice touch.

And if you stay at our house, TH makes a killer breakfast the next morning. It’s like a bed and breakfast up in here.

Happy Tuesday!

    I think you have this entertaining thing down. I would love to come to your casa and enjoy all these pretty things, plus those amazing tablescapes you always do.

    According to this, I’m like the worst hostess *EVER* (c; I jest. I do actually wash sheets and such for the guests and I even cook. It’s like a complete miracle, my family is always like “wha???? Mom cooks???”
