It All Starts In The Bathroom
As beautiful and fun as hosting can be, it is also equally stressful and draining. Be it your friends flying in from interstate, a weekend with the in-laws or extended family making a pit-stop, having guests stay over can be hard to navigate.

Tip Two – Fresh Flowers
Have fresh florals or greenery set up in the bathroom. This aims to create a fresh and warm space for your guests to re-coup. A small sprig in a vase or a tall plant in the corner of the room is the perfect nod to relaxation.
