We’re having some more over-night guests stay with us next month! We’re pretty excited because it’s my in-laws & we can’t wait to do some cool DC area things with them. As this is the first apartment where we’ve had an actual guest room, I’m trying to make it a nice and comfortable place to stay. There are lots of little details that still need to be figured out, but I wanted to share one of the latest addition to the room today.
We’ve stopped buying bottled water (other than our emergency water) so I’ve been looking for a water carafe for the guest room. My one requirement was that it had a lid or top of some sort. Yesterday, during a quick stop at Marshalls I spotted this carafe. Perfect! (And only $3.99). The color is a great match to the bright blue chair and blue frame & I love that there’s no question about what it’s for.
I added some fun thrifted amber glass water glasses (to tie in with the yellow in the room) and a pretty navy blue catch-all (from Michaels). The sandstone coasters were wedding gifts from Crate and Barrel. I’ll probably remove the bottle’s tag moments before I run out the door to pick up our guests at the airport.
What do you do to get ready for guests?
