This past year we've had LOTS of guests in our home. Halfway through the year I had the idea to start filling a little basket with snacks and treats as a fun little "welcome" in the guest room. I had SO much fun filling the basket each time that one day it dawned on me that we could make a little hotel-style cart with all of those little travel essentials that are so annoying to leave at home! Almost every time I travel, I forget either my toothbrush or razor and end up running to a Walgreen's or begging for one at the hotel's front desk.
So I found this cart at a flea market, gave it a fresh coat of paint and filled it with all the things that would make me feel at home when traveling…and then some! I added snacks (healthy and junky!), mini-sized toiletries, water, fresh towels and a small bouquet of flowers. 🙂Other ideas to personalize your guest room cart: A favorite book, pens and blank notepads, a pretty candle, gum, a list of places you love in your city (for those guests who have brought a car), a disposable camera and a handwritten welcome! ♥ Basically, anything you've ever kicked yourself for forgetting while traveling is an awesome idea.
EDIT: The WiFi password! Thanks for reminding me—you guys are so smart!
I'm so excited about this project because it was so easy. And I think it will make our guests feel special! It's the little things, you know? xo. Elsie
