Happy Tuesday, Everyone! Did you all enjoy your 3-day weekend? We had the absolute best time soaking in the sun on our back deck, playing games, and grilling out. We even squeezed in a few projects around the home, but more on that later. Thinking about Memorial Day though, I can’t help but reflect how grateful I am for the men and women that so fearlessly gave their lives so we can live in a country of freedom. Their sacrifices and bravery are beyond what I can ever comprehend or repay, but I am filled with such gratitude.
Today I am sharing with you our Guest Room Welcome Basket and I have included a cute little printable for you, too. Check it out below.
GUEST ROOM WELCOME BASKET
One of the things I was looking forward to the most about having a home was being able to welcome family and friends inside. I love gatherings. I love being able to bring people together to sit around the table and enjoy a meal, to laugh until they can’t anymore, and to share raw and real moments of life. For these are the moments I truly relish in and cherish.
When guests stay at our home I want them to know just how grateful we are that they’re here. I want them to feel comfortable and a little pampered, too, because why not? One of my favorite ways to do so is to welcome them with a basket with some overnight essentials. Depending on the guest, the items in the basket can vary, but today I am giving you a peek at my go-to items that will make any guest feel a little more welcomed.
WHAT’S IN THE BASKET
Here are the things that fill our Guest Room Welcome Basket:
- 2 Mint Towels
- 2 Wash Cloths
- Be Our Guest Sign
- Beauty Counter Lotion
- Do Not Disturb Door Knob Sign
- Q-tips & Cotton Balls
- Extra Toothbrushes + Toothpaste in case they forgot theirs
- 2 Water Bottles
IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS
Simple details go a long way. Here I added a simple chalkboard label to say ‘welcome’ and to subtly invite guests to help themselves to anything in the basket.
Have scrap ribbon left over from another project? Put it to good use. Roll up your towels and tie it off with a bit of ribbon to add a finishing touch.

There is nothing like being woken up when you are planning to sleep in. Give your guests the option to put this cute little Do Not Disturb sign on their door if they are planning to count sheep a little later than you. To print your own click HERE.
Do you enjoy hosting overnight guests? If so, what are some of your go to tips? We have a few more touches that need to be made to this room, but I am hoping to give you a full tour in the near future. Have a wonderful Tuesday! Yay for a 4 day work week!
