Preparing for Houseguests {& Silhouette Giveaway Preview}

It’s so great to have my husband’s parents in town for the holidays.   They are super nice and since they live out of town, we’re lucky that they’re here for a week this time.  In preparation for their visit, I got some new white sheets for the bed (to go with the Z Gallerie duvet and Wal-Mart pillow covers), added some fresh flowers to the nightstand, and included a little jar of treats (Hershey Kisses Meltaways- Jimmy’s mom’s favorite!)

The guest bath got a little boost of freshness too with some flowers, new buttery yellow towels, bathmat and shower curtain from the Restoration Hardware outlet.  I was thinking that the yellow would be nice a nice welcome to the new year and tie in nicely with my adjoining office.

I hope they enjoy their stay!
