During the holiday season, we will be hosting several parties for family & friends. Occasionally, we will have people stay over our house for a night or two. I always look forward to these occasions because it’s a great way to spend more quality time with the people I love. Today, I’ll be sharing some tips on how to create a welcoming guest bedroom, because after all, I want my guests to feel comfortable in my home. I even made a gift basket for my guests using supplies I picked up from Big Lots and I can’t wait to share all the details with you.
Whenever I need something for my home, Big Lots is usually my first destination. From small home decor pieces to gorgeous pieces of furniture, Big Lots always has a wide variety of high quality products. I recently made a trip to Big Lots to pick up all the essentials for creating a welcoming guest bedroom. With company heading over in just a few weeks, I knew I needed to start shopping!
Big Lots is my favorite one-stop-shop that lets me easily prepare for the last few months of the year! I always enjoy my time at Big Lots- the store is clean and organized! The shelves are always well-stocked and employees are super friendly.
One of the first things I picked up for my gift basket was this luxurious throw! I love the beautiful blue pattern on it and the fact that it’s super soft! It was offered at a great value and I know this will come in handy for guests!
Speaking of bedding, I also picked up this supersized plush blanket for the bed. It’s a fabulously large size and perfect for making my guests feel comfortable and warm during the colder fall months!
While walking through the bedding aisles, I found this fabulous 6 piece sheet set in a King size. It’s ultra soft and wrinkle-resistant, so that will definitely save me time in the long run. I also love that it comes with a bonus set of 2 extra pillowcases!
What bed looks complete without a decorative throw pillow (or two or three)? I absolutely love pillows in my house – and may have a pillow obsession! I found this fun decorative pillow at Big Lots and I know it will complement the color scheme of the guest bedroom! Isn’t it super fun?!
I also picked up a few extra bath towels, so my guests feel comfortable while they are here. These soft, absorbent bath towels really add a luxurious touch to bath time.
Whenever I’m traveling, I find that I am usually hungry & thirsty by the time I get to my destination. So while at Big Lots, I picked up some water bottles and various snacks for my guests. I always find the coolest, most unique snack products at Big Lots. As a matter of fact, finding a fun, exotic snack is always on my to-do list whenever I’m at a Big Lots store.
Another thing I wanted to add to my gift basket was a little “Welcome” note that provided my Wi-Fi network name and password. People need to get online, am I right? By sharing my network name and password upfront on a piece of paper (just like they do at hotels), my guests know that I am thinking of their needs! If you’d like to download a printable version of this card for your guests, click here.
Finally, I printed out a little street map of my neighborhood so guests will know how to find their way around. It only took a few minutes to print this out, but it’s another special gesture that my guests will surely appreciate.
So now, it’s time to put everything together! I made the bed with the white sheets, draped the plush blanket at the foot of the bed and added the decorative pillow! Looking comfy, right?
Next, I added everything else (throw, towels, snacks, welcome note, map, etc.) into a big gift basket. I’m sure this basket will make my guests feel welcome!
I placed the basket on the bed! I think this room is all set for visitors!
Now, check out why Big Lots needs to be your go-to store for all your home decor needs this fall and tell me: Are you planning on hosting any company this holiday season? How do you make your guests feel welcome? Do you have any tips on creating a welcoming guest bedroom?
