Guest Ready Guest Room: Little Details

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.

Guest Ready Guest Room -Water Bottle + Glasses for Guests

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.

Guest Ready Guest Room - The Details

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?

  1. I love it when guests come over!! All I do, though, is wash the sheets and stock the bathroom, haha. One day I want to get a little more fun, though, and leave them something cute.

    • I think it’s so fun to do a few cute things for guests. It’s easier now that we have a dedicated guest room.
      Hope you’ll stop by again soon.

    • Haha, love it Gretchen! In your defense – you have 4 boys to keep up with. All I have is a 5lb poodle. 🙂 I hope guests like the water carafe too! Although, I’m sure they will appreciated it after tasting the as-chlorinated-as-a-swimming-pool water that comes out of the faucets around here!
