Holiday Entertaining | Overnight Guests

It’s that time of year! Sprucing up the guest room and making sure the house is squeaky clean for your guests. You may be having the in-laws over or maybe even a dear family friend. It’s important to make your guest feel welcome and here are a few ideas to make their stay extra special.

Make sure you have something easy and versatile for breakfast food. Everyone’s different about their first meal of the day so having fresh fruit, oatmeal, eggs or fresh pastries are great to have around. You can make your pastries if you are feeling ambitious or we love picking them up from a local coffee shop or bakery. These lovelies are from Patika, one of our favorites for delicious and unique pastries. feather your nest holiday hosting-1 feather your nest holiday hosting-2

Coffee or Tea? Again, an important start to many people’s day. Make sure you have a couple options as well as milk and sugar. Maybe even send your guest a note beforehand to make sure you have the right kind of milk– now that’s going an extra mile! Almond milk, skim, half and half, whole! There are so many options these days. feather your nest holiday hosting-4

Finally, an extra blanket at the end of the bed is important for added comfort. We also love making sure there is a good read and even a candle for some extra thoughtfulness. feather your nest holiday hosting-5

Happy hosting, nesters!
