Guest Picks: Entertaining Overnight Guests
Whether you're hosting guests at your home or just looking to save a little space, these storage options are perfect for the upcoming holidays. Place blankets, magazines or other items in them to make your guests feel at home, or hide that unwanted mess to the side so that your guests will never know! — Melissa from Chic Coles
I found these boxes when I was shopping in Houston and am completely in love with the pattern and colors. They are great to display, and they will hide all the small personal items you might not want guests to see.
Basket storage options are breathable and can house items like blankets and pillows.
Make sure to have really soft, bright white and clean towels out for your guests. Soft towels make all the difference!
I have always wanted one of these stacking apothecary jars, and now that I have company coming to stay with me this Christmas, I am going to organize all the bathroom necessities into one. The best thing is that it will give your guests a reason to not have to search high and low looking for cotton balls.
Are you having guests over? Place extra towels or magazines in this as a bedside storage option. Your guests will feel right at home.
This storage bench is perfect for toys, linens or even clothes that you only periodically wear. The nailheads add the perfect touch.
There's no excuse for a messy kitchen, especially if it's your turn to host Thanksgiving.
I am obsessed with this gray chevron ottoman. Use it as a temporary bedside table with a tray and a lamp, or house extra sheets for your guests in it.
Light a holiday candle to get the winter season started!
Add a sheepskin rug to the foot of the bed, so getting in and out of bed on a wooden floor is warm and cozy.
Store your storage! These nesting baskets are chic and oh-so-efficient. When not in use, place the smaller basket within the larger basket.
This storage for your pets' things is ingenious, not to mention chic. Who likes looking at pet food bags when you can look at these dog and cat food canisters?
Let your guests feel like they're staying in a five-star resort with a plush bath robe. They'll never want to leave!
These herringbone throws are super cute and comfortable too. Warm yourself by the fire, but make sure to have a couple on hand for all of your guests.
Add poufs to your living room to accommodate extra seating around a coffee table. Sometimes there just isn't enough room to fit four (or more) people to one sofa.
Who doesn't like getting into a comfortable bed with fabulously soft flannel sheets? Your guests will notice the difference and really appreciate the effort.
If you know ahead of time that your guests will be staying, plan ahead and order a pair of monogrammed pillow cases. Your guests will love the personal touch, and they will be able to take them home when they leave.
Delicious-smelling candles can make the whole house smell great.
A welcome mat is perfect for guests. They will not only feel welcome, but they'll know they are at the correct house!
