Guest Room Essentials

my best friend is coming to idaho for my birthday and she will be our first visitor. i have so enjoyed preparing our guest bed & bathroom for her. i really really really want to own a bed and breakfast one day or maybe even... a hotel. 
now, the guest room isn't entirely done being decorated so i'm only going to show you some fun details & not the entire room yet. you'll get the idea though. 
here are the few things i've left in the room to make her stay more enjoyable.
^^^ in the closet i have an empty dresser for clothing and such as well as some hangers. i've stored extra pillows and an extra blanket on the top shelves. it gets cold at night for them Arizonians so i don't want our guests to be chilly.
^^^ we have a tall dresser in the corner that i have added some fun elements to. on top is a cute little snack station and in each of the drawers i've added guest amenities. 
^^^ bottled water, basket with a variety of snacks as well as a few menus from some restaurants that deliver {just in case}, an iphone dock & a picture frame with our wifi password in it. 
^^^ drawer one: assorted meds, band-aids, sewing kit, earplugs {because puppy likes to wake us up with barking}, some Greetings from Idaho postcards, iphone charger, matches, lint roller, flashlight, mints, pens & some paper.
^^^ i ordered these vintage style Greetings from Idaho postcards from zazzle dot com
^^^ drawer two essentials for her: tampons, panty liners, makeup remover wipes, face wash bar, face wash & face lotion, shaving cream, lotion, razor, shampoo & conditioner, hairspray, leave in conditioner, dry shampoo, sea salt spray & some fuzzy socks.
^^^ drawer three essentials for him: different phone chargers, q-tips, cotton balls, cotton pads, body spray, shampoo & conditioner, shaving cream, razor, mouth wash, toothpaste, toothbrush. {obviously, some of these things are essentials for women as well... i just didn't have enough room in the female drawer. what?!? we require more stuff. do you think we just wake up like this???}
^^^ drawer four: extra body and face towels
^^^ drawer five: extra bed linens
^^^ ...and last but not least, a guestbook. i remember when Huck and i stayed in a rental cabin for our honeymoon {here}. the owners had a guestbook and asked guests to leave them a note about their stay. it was so fun to leave them a thankful letter and to flip back and read what all the previous guests wrote. 

do you have a cozy guest room? i want to see! leave your links in the comments below. 

xoxo, kerri

  7. You are SUPER organized! This is the BEST setup I have ever seen for a guest room! You seriously have any and everything a guest could possibly need on a stay over! It is very thoughtful and home warming as well! Its cute that you have a little snack box too!!! I staying at someones house one time and they put a moon pie and a card with some fun facts about moon pies, they lived in the town where the moon pie was created! It was neat to learn about a fact about the town I had never know! Thanks for sharing, gave me some great tips!!!
