It’s that time of year, when doting hosts prepare for invited (and sometimes unexpected) holiday visitors. Here’s how to make any guest room feel like a luxe B&B:
• Handwritten Menu
After dinner, leave a simple breakfast menu on the pillow. Even a handwritten card that reads, “Join us for coffee and cinnamon rolls in the morning” will make your guests feel like VIPs.
• Midnight Snack
Offer hotel-style turn-down service. At bedtime, fold back the duvet and top sheet and surprise guests with a late-night snack of brownies or pumpkin bread.
• Bedside Reading
Provide a best-selling novel, fun magazines (New Jersey Monthly!) and a chilled carafe of water on the nightstand for a relaxing sleepover experience.
• Goody Basket
Complete your guest room with fresh flowers, soft cotton sheets and towels, and a treat like this Spa Tonic Gift Box by B. Witching Bath Co., loaded with therapeutic soap, lotion and shower gel.
